Osama bin Laden's Assassination Evokes Comments From `Friends'

Categories: News
The startling news last night of Osama bin Laden's assassination evoked many responses from friends of ours, including one from an old bud named Corey after he saw this headline graphic on the Fox News affiliate in Sacramento (Fox40):

This man was not born in Kenya


Said Corey, "I know they probably wish they could have skipped the `Bin' and the `Laden,' but give me a flippin' break!"

Other comments, courtesy of our Facebook page:

William from Pennsylvania: "So much for my theory that he was hiding in plain sight in NYC, driving a cab."

Eric, a local attorney: "Faux News and Glenn Beck denying whole story. Trump saying he has 'proof" to be 'forthcoming' that Osama never even existed."

Kathy, a Valley therapist: "I find it interesting that the one thing our President was seriously attacked for -- his lack of military background -- is the one thing he will go down in history for. A military operation. Things are not always as they seem and can change on a freaking dime."

Rob, a ball-playing pal from LA: "Why do I feel LESS safe than I did before the news tonight?"

Stephany, a cool lady from San Diego: "Happy Dance! The Wicked Witch is Dead!"

Finally, Jameson, a sharp cat from right down the street: "Our Arab-American friends and neighbors have paid a terrible price because of the fundamentalist hijacking of Islam."

Ok...so it took the most powerful and resource-rich (thanks to taxpayers hard work) usa military 10+ years to find a 6+ foot middle eastern man with hoards of money to locate and kill?

Come on now.

Also.....Where is the proof, and WHY do the taxpayers have to ASK for proof. We should see the body.....THEN they can toss this idiot into the sea if they want to.

Also...now that OBL is dead, what have we accomplished? Not much......how many others are in line waiting to take his place? Or, have the taxpayers fallen asleep at the wheel on this, or maybe they aren't this inquisitive......

And all this happens on the cusp of a birth certificate. They crawl up everyone's butt at the airport, but the president of our country can't be bothered to disclose proof of his credentials for the office he wishes to hold/holds?

Ridiculous......all of it.

Perfect timing to accompany the news that Obama's last attempt to produce a birth certificate was and has been proven to be a fake. It doesn't take any effort at all to kill someone who has been dead for 9 years and there were many actual reports on that overseas. Here's a good one...they bury his body at sea...oh, alright that makes sense. They followed Islamic law that says a Muslim must be buried within 24 hours after his death. I don't see them falling all over themselves to bury any other Muslims they've killed, especially within 24 hours. Luckily the navy seals are better trained to work in the mountains instead of any land oriented military group so they had an excuse for why his body was at sea. If they took his body why did they throw it away? Wouldn't DNA be a good thing to have to prove it was him? Of course they'll say they got samples and took pictures. This is so ridiculous. And now the intelligent sheep are chiming in with their insightful and patriotic baah...baah...baah. The editorials wiil be full of so much propaganda that it will put millions of people back to sleep. When you control the media, you control the world. This world is dead meat.


OOPs, I hit like Totally by mistake, shit. Your post is such a POS that I'm not evenwasting my time on it.

Until the U.S. government LIARS produce a body, I will call their bluff !I want to see Osama bin Laden's dead body. They can say whatever they want to, but I'm not foolish enough to buy it.

October 12, 2000: The United States Ship Cole is bombed while refueling in Aden, Yemen.

June 10, 2001: Osama bin Laden released a recruiting video for Al Qaeda, in which he took credit for the planning and execution of the aerial attack on the U.S.S. Cole that killed 39 Americans.

July 4, 2001: Osama bin Laden was a patient in a 100 bed American owned private hospital in the wealthy country of Dubai ( location of the 180 story Burj-Dubai tower ). Newspapers from New York to Paris, France reported that the U.S. CIA were the ones who body-guarded Osama bin Laden from 7/4/2001 to 7/14/2001..

July 14, 2001: Osama bin Laden was released from this American owned hospital in Dubai - and took off for Afghanistan, for his "magical mystery tour" down the rabbit hole for terrorists.

September 11, 2001: 2,984 American citizens are destroyed in the most cruel and inhuman attack ever seen in the United States, resulting from the orchestrated hijackings of four luxury aircraft within 75 minutes of each other. An attack that the United States government and its military did absolutely nothing to stop. Thank you, George W. Bush, you drunken filth.

How much shit are American citizens willing to eat ?As much as it takes !

I whacked Jimmy Hoffa. I buried his body at sea. You'll just have to trust me on that.

And by the way, how do you equate verified reports with conspiracy theories ???Just how afraid are you of U.S.government - or the world in general ???You can die a chump and be buried as a dead chump, and the USofA will still be what they are... terrorists and liars.

Be well.


I have a conspiracy theory.

I believe that people conspire. I believe it happens all the time.

Did Enron conspire to fix prices? If you answer "yes," you are a conspiracy theorist.

"Stephany, a cool lady from San Diego: 'Happy Dance! The Wicked Witch is Dead!'"

Remember, though, that that dance number ended with the arrival of a hitherto unknown and even more wicked witch.


Great point there.....who knows what is going to happen next?


We need another McGuffin to justify our imperialist ventures in the name of "anti-terrorism." Mohamar Khaddafi, maybe?
