Michael Moore: Bin Laden wasn't killed, he was executed
MSN.com ^ | 4 May 11 | Brent Lang

Posted on 05/05/2011 11:44:19 AM PDT by seanmerc

Osama bin Laden wasn't killed by a Navy SEAL team, he was straight up executed, Michael Moore told TheWrap on Wednesday.

The "Fahrenheit 9/11" director has been setting Twitter aflame Wednesday afternoon urging the Obama administration to come clean about the circumstances surrounding the terrorist leader's death -- particularly in light of the White House's shifting account of last weekend's firefight in Abbottabad.

The Oscar-winning director has been tweeting about his belief that Bin Laden should have received a trial, and his theory that Pakistan was keeping the Al Qaeda head under house arrest.

Killed, executed - either is fine, when it comes to those who do evil.

It sounds like there is a developing liberal view that we should not have gone after Bin Laden.

And I’ve heard some liberals were shocked, just shocked, at the public jubilation at the news of Bin Laden’s death. The liberals wanted us to pause in quiet reflection, not celebrate.

What would today’s liberals have thought about the public jubilation on VE Day and VJ Day???? Sheesh.......

Didn’t he liken Al Qaeda to the Minutemen? Osama bin Laden would be George Washington in his eyes, then, I guess…

. . . which is a good thing and, I might add, it was over waaaayyyy too quickly . . . not nearly enough agony and suffering.

On this issue, I stand behind President Obama.

Oh, I'm sure Obama waffled and the story ain't coming out exactly straight, but the end result is that I'm convinced that Osama was eliminated from play one way or another so I will defend the end result of the President's decision.

Any left wing asshole boo-hooing about that can basically go screw their own mothers.

Well, now that Michael Moore has weighed in, we know what we’re supposed to think!

That does it for me! If Michael Moore is upset we went after Bin Laden, well then, we shouldn’t have. So now Michael has to be mad at his good liberal president. (sarcasm)

And Michael can now denounce Obama as a war criminal and all that, just as Bush was so denounced by the likes of Moore, Cindy Sheehan, Code Pink girls, etc.

That might be true. At the beginning he might have been "esteemed guest", but with a hot potato like that - and a pawn to be traded when needed - he might have ended up being a prisoner

Still don't care. Bye, murderer.

Moore is just saying this, because he knows that what he spouts may be treasonous. Soon the SEALS may be coming for him. He wants to build a case against the way his buddy was stopped from killing thousands more actual Americans that love this country in case he finds himself in the same boat.

What Leftist woman would he use as a human shield, Lack-of-Joy Behar?

It would be fine with me if OBL was shot unarmed with his hands up. What’s great is that the left is starting to think about this event and their libtard morals cant help but take over.

This is great! I hope Micheal Moore keeps talking, and loud. The hard left needs to get wrapped around the axle on this and convince themselves that Obama is a war criminal just like Bush.

Hopefully, this will drive down the left's enthusiasm for voting in 2012. I think that a significant percentage of Obama's voting base are people who rarely vote and only did due to the historical nature of the election. If Obama proves to just be another politician, they will disconnect.

I... agree with Michael Moore. Huh. That was odd to type. I don't know what he means when he makes the distinction, but:

"Execution" is what we dispassionately do to criminals who don't deserve to share the planet with the rest of humanity anymore. "Execution" involves justice and punishment for past wrongs.

"Killing" can mean any number of things.

Osama bin Laden was not worthy of living among decent human beings. He was executed as a result.

People on the left will begin to get nervous. I think they hate America so much that part of the charm with Obama was that they thought he quietly did so as well. In their camp, OBL was a made guy, much like William Ayers. The thought that this president would go in and kill the guy scares the living hell out of them. He was one of their own!

Now they are in fear for their own safety, because our president did something to someone who shares much of the same philosophy when it comes to America.

It's Rumsfeld's quote that applies here, "They have been feeding the alligator, hoping it eats them last"

The problem is that they thought the line they were in was the same one OBL was in, and only a few spots ahead of them.

I expect the lefties to march to the white House and call for the resignation of their murderer in chief obama hussein.
I expect muslims to call for the beheading of osama hussein.

I expect the hollywood brigade to shun the dictator osama barack hussein.

I keep telling the lefties around me that osama hussein is a cold bloded murderer. That their hero is a war monger.

OMG. Is Michael Moore really over 400 pounds? My gosh, that dude is a walking coronary waiting to happen. He needs to take care of his health.

He needs to learn about diet, exercise, and nutrition, among other health topics. Since he is a millionaire, I’m sure he has a great health insurance plan, and/or the abilty to pay for whatever help he needs in these areas.

I hope he’s around for years to come to lecture us about why we should be liberal like he is.

Actually, he makes some good points (inbetween total garbage).

I like this one:

Do you buy the story about Osama’s burial at sea?

That’s bulls-— [that] “He was buried at sea according to Muslim tradition.” I’ve got many Muslim friends where I live in Michigan. When I go to a Muslim funeral in Detroit, we don’t hop in a chopper after the ceremony and drop the body into Lake Erie.

We’re so worried about upsetting the Muslim world. We just shot him in the f-—ing head, do you think they care how we conduct the funeral?

Michael Moore: Bin Laden wasn't killed, he was executed

So, Fats. Do give credit where credit is due: to your hero, the Lord High Executioner you helped send from Chicago to the White House! He has finished what George W. Bush started!

Of course, it would have been nice if he'd release the pics and if the Seals had brought Dexter along to survey the aftermath and if he'd had that other famous Hollywood death boy, Dr Noguchi, check out the body before feeding it to the sharks ceremonially wrapped in bacon. We death freaks need more solid data, lest we become deathers!

I think that Michael Moore would like nothing better than to say that Osama bin Laden was “murdered”, and that that was what he was dancing around when he said “executed”.

But he also knows that there are some things even he shouldn’t say.

“it was over waaaayyyy too quickly . . . not nearly enough agony and suffering.”

Not to worry. Eternity is a long time, and being double tapped by Navy SEALS (even if it was in slow motion), will be like a game of “tickle me” compared to the torment he will face on Judgment Day.
