Rosie ODonnell: We didnt give Bin Laden due process

whats the biggest news from this clip? That Rosie, like many delicate European flowers of discerning temperaments, thinks Osama deserved better than he got? Or that Rosie now apparently accepts the official narrative of 9/11? Why, it seems like just yesterday that she was musing on national television that I do believe that its the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel. I do believe that it defies physics that World Trade Center tower 7building 7, which collapsed in on itselfit is impossible for a building to fall the way it fell without explosives being involved. World Trade Center 7. World Trade [Center] 1 and 2 got hit by planes7, miraculously, the first time in history, steel was melted by fire. It is physically impossible. Maybe shes compromised since then and concluded that Bin Laden was an accomplice to the real masterminds.
Eighty percent of Americans say it was right to kill him instead of capture him versus 11 percent who think it was wrong. The crosstabs for that question will be out tonight, but I wonder how many in the majority approve of the killing because (1) Bin Laden deserved to die, (2) Bin Laden posed a physical threat to the SEALs and therefore had to be taken down, or (3) Bin Ladens capture and trial would have been an endless legal and media clusterfark, with no standard of due process and imprisonment sufficiently high for the self-styled intelligentsia whom Brendan ONeill tore apart here. Like Jeff Greenfield, I assume it was that third consideration that weighed most heavily on Obama. He knew that most of his base would either happily or unhappily tolerate Bin Laden being shot in the face ever since he banned enhanced interrogation, theyve given him carte blanche to go the full Bush on counterterrorism but that 11 percent would have been a headache for the rest of his presidency. Bin Laden emphatically had it coming, and the SEALs understandably feared that either he or the compound was wired with explosives, and they had already recovered scores of hard drives and thumb drives for intelligence purposes, so they shot him on sight. Problem solved, zero American casualties. Everyones happy almost.
After you listen to the clip, enjoy Hitchens laying into Noam Chomsky for his own quasi-Truther lament over the weekend about Bin Ladens killing. Apparently, despite endless evidence of Al Qaedas responsibility for the attacks (Hitchens cites just a few key pieces), the great dissident remains agnostic about whodunnit. Anyone think a trial and conviction, whether here or in the Hague, would have convinced him? Me neither.
Rosie didn’t give her scale due process.
Stupid is as stupid says.
Rosie O’Donuts and Michael “I want “Moore would make such a great couple. Maybe they could play together on her next Cruise to Nowhere.
Thanks doug from upland.
Ask Rosie what the occupants of the Twin Towers got?
Imagine how indignant she’d be if President Bush was still in office.
Tell the fat, lesbian bitch to take her dumb-as-f**k comments, shove them into an eclair, eat the damn thing, and then SHUT THE F**K UP!
Sorry...this just made me a little bit mad...)(
More gas from the human pez dispenser!
Lol....don’t hold back!
Rosie, you fat waste of skin....Bin Laden cannot be afforded due process unless he is on American soil. Read the friggin' Constitution you cow.
Due process in a war, Rosie, is a double tap.
Really? Did she really say that?! OMG!
What is it with obese, ugly, obnoxious, left-wing, useless pieces of crap like Rosie O’Donnell & Michael Moore? They should have their own talk show. The network can call it “the Obese, Ugly, Obnoxious, Left-Wing Pieces of Crap” Hour!
