Pics or it didn’t happen

So the White House is refusing to publish or provide any proof that they ‘got bin Laden’ other than their word, which is literally changing several times a day thus far. He was armed, no one was armed, he used a wife as a shield, his wife is alive and says he was captured and then executed. Here’s the pics of them watching it happen real time, sorry the video was out so this is merely a staged photo to show what it was like, er, would have been like if it had worked. We are releasing photos, we aren’t. Goes on and on.

The idea behind not releasing the photos is that it would appear insensitive and incite more animosity towards the US. All the photos and videos of people literally dancing in the streets, those can stay.

I ask  you, which do you think would piss them off  more? A picture to prove that we did what we said or more regular Americans dancing in the streets and holding signs showing the Statue of Liberty holding OBL’s decapitated head? Pictures of regular citizens rejoicing in the death of a person, any person, really plays as ‘look at those blood thirsty Americans’ across the world.  It just does.

Also, the bigger point here is that we are supposed to be a nation of laws, of fairness and having a judicial system second to none. Now, I know many of you are already laughing, but hang on a moment and indulge me. That is supposed to be the idea of our country, even the most evil gets a fair shake in court, the most unpopular speech is what should be protected by the First Amendment and so on. We are supposed to be the good guys, the shining beacon, blazing the trail on the high road.  So why are we committing, what many newspapers even point right out, an international crime and assassination? Yeah, yeah he was at war with us and he was a commander and we had every right to shoot him as much as we had a right to shoot a Nazi commander etc… I hear those arguments and they really smack of laziness.

Would not the best thing to do would have been to bring him back, keep him in Gitmo under HEAVY guard and then put him on trial? That would have shown the world that America still stands for what we originally said we did. Justice cannot be served correctly unless it takes place under our own accepted rules of crime and punishment. This could have been a major boost in perception of America across the world, here’s the most wanted guy ever really (Take a poll, I bet OBL ranks more evil than Hitler in America) and we took him and prosecuted  him like we would any other criminal, according to our laws and customs. No doubt he would have received the death penalty and would have been found guilty, but we didn’t do that. We just committed what is ‘technically’ an international war crime, but it’s ok we get a pass because he was ‘so bad.’

The REAL thing here is that a trial could never ever have happened, for a couple of reasons.

a. There is NO WAY in hell they would allow him to ever be heard from on American TV because he simply knows about too many skeletons, including himself. Remember, no one is denying it, WE are the ones that initially recruited  him and his band of fighters to battle the evil red dog of the USSR. We made him, gave him guns and training and yes, even a paycheck (like he needed it!) No one wants him to be able to speak. Even the few real videos (since many…most actually since 9/11 were outright admitted fakes) we have to take the translators words for granted since most of us don’t speak Farsi or whatever language he spoke (probably some English since his family does so much business with Haliburton and the Bush family.)

b. He’s been dead for about 9 years now already. They pulled one last big job to blame on  him and then used the hunt for  him (partially) to launch new wars which are good for business and OBL was ok with that, he was about dead by then anyway. There have been many MANY people saying this over the years, and not schmucks on the internet or talk radio hosts only…big people like Madeline Albright, various intelligence officials, various other heads of state in the area, FBI agents and so on. He was known to need a lot of dialysis treatments. That typically means  your life expectancy is significantly shortened. It’s what’s called ‘circling the drain.’ Hard to provide evidence to something that couldn’t have happened anyway.

This is nothing more than a stunt to pull eyes off the still lingering birther debate (which I am sick and tired of) and to keep everyone talking about it. That’s why they are leaving so many loose ends and changing the story. They are going out of their way to make it seem like a badly executed operation. That makes me worried about what we SHOULD be paying attention to right now, cause it isn’t this story I can assure you of that.

The narrow minded people will slam this down with ‘YOU HATE AMERICA!’ and such. No. I love America. What America is supposed to be, but not what it is now which is the equivalent of the Empire. So I guess watch out for Ewoks.
