Honestly, I haven’t been this addled since the early morning hours after my first pint of vodka. But as the O-administration spins, we can at least be confident that it’s clueless to the core. The decision to not release images of Osama bin Laden dead is one made by a president more concerned about the sentiments of our enemy than American citizens. “Reach out” goes the thinking. Don’t “inflame Muslim passions.” Though if Islam is peaceful, as is reiterated ad nauseum, why choose appeasement over proof of success?
Mike Rogers, chairman of something called the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said this of the matter: “Imagine how the American people would feel if al-Qaida killed one of our troops or military leaders and put photos on the internet. Osama bin Laden is not a trophy. He is dead, and let’s focus on continuing the fight until al-Qaida has been eliminated.”
Wow. Political correctness doesn’t distinguish between fools (Rogers is Republican), and so a demented man who authorized the killing of 3000 Americans is raised to the equivalent of the American soldier.
Yours is the same dreck which led to Major Hassan blurting “Allahu akbar” prior to spilling blood at Fort Hood. When it comes to offending Americans, nothing is sacred, yet when it comes to jihadists, we become Dr. Phil.
Meanwhile, bin Laden is dead, though not without a 50-minute ceremony complete with ablutions and more respect for a killer than for the victims he offed.
Question: If he was “not a Muslim leader,” if he perverted Islam, then why the white shroud? The White House embraces “Muslim sensitivities,” but fails to consider that appeasement changes nothing and that jihadists are implacable.
How ‘bout AMERICAN sensitivities, Mr. President? Those traumatized by 9-11 deserve closure. If those who leaped from the World Trade Center could talk, what they would ask is: Of whom are you the president? The people of America, who don’t trust you and want proof, or the people of a make-believe, multicultural world?
