May Osama bin Laden Rot In Hell- Snarky Linkfest Of Osama News

Six days in after the announcement that Osama bin Laden was killed and the news cycle is still full of news relating to the raid and death of the the Al-Qaeda leader, so below we will have linkage to quite a few eye catching stories.

Starting with the trouble making slob, Michael Moore who thinks al-Qaeda has been dismantled for a long time and that executing bin Laden was wrong and anyone who thinks bin Laden being killed without a trial, simply hates "being American".

MOORE: No, no. They killed him. But what I'm saying is they didn't kill because there was some kind of firefight or something going on. They went there with the intention to kill him. That's an execution and -- or an assassination, whatever you want to call it.

And I think -- I think, look, like I said, I'm glad he's gone. But I just feel something has -- we've lost something of our soul here in this country. And maybe I'm just an old school American who believes in our American judicial system. Something that separates us from other parts, other countries where we say everybody has their day in court no matter how bad of a person, no matter what piece of scum they are, they have a right to a trial.

One word for Moore- Jackass.

Anyone remember the name Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the confessed mastermind to the 9/11 attacks? He is still being given free room and board on the American taxpayer's dime. Americans still argue whether he should be tried in New York, a civilian trial, or by the military via tribunal.

So, excuse the hell out of me for being more than happy that bin Laden took a bullet to the chest and head and is no longer with us. He ordered an attack that killed approximately 3,000 people in one day. He confessed to ordering it, publicly. He bragged about it.

Guilty. Now, DEAD.

Osama will not be the catalyst so the left can cry about the conditions we are holding him in. Osama cannot cause more conflict in the country as we argue over what interrogation tactics are being used on him.

Osama bin Laden is gone. Dead. At the bottom of the ocean (supposedly unless that story also changes like the 27+ other changed stories coming from the White House.)

Picture to the left comes from Israel Matzav's site, photo-shopped no doubt, but since Obama, in his crowning glory of brilliance refuses to release a photo of a dead bin Laden for Americans to see, I will use it here anyway as a symbol to represent what we hope bin Laden looked like before being thrown into the sea to become fish food.

Consider the football spiked Mr. President.

Refusing to release the real thing means people are going to photoshop their own and a person with half a brain should have realized the to start with.

Obama's reasoning:

"It is important to make sure that very graphic photos of somebody who was shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to additional violence or as a propaganda tool," said the president.

Hows that working out Barack?


US leaders were branded “murderers” by radicals, who warned vengeance attacks were “guaranteed” and shouted: "USA, you will pay."

This just in from London-istan: Violent clashes outside U.S. Embassy after hundreds of UK Muslims stage mock funeral for 'murdered' Bin Laden

Violent clashes broke out around the world today as thousands of supporters of Osama bin Laden took to the streets to protest at the Al-Qaeda leader's death.

While many protests took place across the Muslim world, the most extraordinary took place in London, where hundreds of supporters gathered at the U.S. embassy to stage a mock 'funeral service' for the slain terror leader.

Not so good huh?

Obama and his administration officials have got to be the most naive fools in the world if they believed for a second that some picture would incite more violence from the perpetually violent Islamic extremists than the death of Osama bin Laden itself would, could and has.

Btw, word is bin Laden's successor was already chosen and some even believe al-Qaeda was already being led by Egyptian Ayman Al Zawahiri and the courier who led U.S. forces to Bin Laden, did so deliberately.

After killing bin Laden, Obama okayed another attack trying to hit another "most-wanted" al-Qaeda member, Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-born radical cleric suspected of orchestrating terrorist attacks in the U.S, but he got away.

So the I, I, I, I, I, me, me me, my, my my, President hits one and misses one. [Update] See follow up piece comparing Bush's Capture of Saddam Hussein speech to Obama's death of bin Laden speech, here)

Shit happens.

The latest of the we-have-to-keep-this-story-running-until-polls-put-us-over-the-52%-approval-mark-White House's bright ideas, is to publicize home videos of bin Laden watching himself on television. (H/T Wapo for video embed)

Newly released videos show Osama bin Laden watching himself on television and rehearsing for terrorist videos, revealing that even from the walled confines of his Pakistani hideout, he remained a media maestro who was eager to craft his own image for the cameras.

The videos, released by U.S. intelligence officials Saturday, were offered as further proof that Navy SEALs killed the world's most wanted terrorist this week. But they also served to show bin Laden as vain, someone obsessed with his portrayal by the world's media.

One of the movies shows bin Laden, his unkempt beard streaked in gray, sitting on the floor, wrapped in a brown blanket and holding a remote control. He flipped back and forth between what appears to be live news coverage of himself. The old, small television was perched on top of a desk with a large tangle of electrical wires running to a nearby control box.

In another, he has apparently dyed and neatly trimmed his beard for the filming of a propaganda video. The video, which the U.S. released without sound, was titled ""Message to the American People" and was believed to be filed sometime last fall, a senior intelligence official said during a briefing for reporters, on condition that his name not be used.

No spiked footballs here, move along.

CNN is showing the videos here.

What would a snarky, snide, sarcastic piece be if it doesn't mention the useless UN human right's watchdogs questioning the U.S.'s actions in killing bin Laden?

How does it feel to get a taste of what Israel deals with constantly Barack?

Next up, a piece from Spiked Online which begins with the question "How did ‘I hate bin Laden and I’m glad he’s dead’ become the most shocking thing one can say in polite society?"

Good question and they provide a nice essay in answering it, read that for yourself, but I am noting the concluding paragraph because it conveys what I am seeing quite a bit of online, throughout the blogosphere.

Look, if you want to have a real debate about Western intervention in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq, bring it on. spiked bows to no one in the implacability of our principled opposition to foreign meddling in other states’ affairs. But if you want to tell me that bin Laden was treated badly, and that the allegedly morally unhinged reaction to his death might invite more terror upon us, then I have only one thing to say: ‘Fuck bin Laden.’


This has been your snark of the day.
