Yesterday the White House announced no photos of a dead Usama will be released for public view. President Obama said Bin Laden was not a "trophy" and that there was no need to "spike the football".
Then he packed up and headed to Ground Zero.
Today is May the 5th. Why is the President at Ground Zero? I remind you all that President Obama has NEVER visited Ground Zero as President. Why now?
Mind you, I don't have a problem with the President of the United States pausing at Ground Zero to honor the fallen. But I do find it odd - and more than coincidental - that this President chose to make his first visit in two and a half years just days after Bin Laden was killed. There is no explanation from the White House about why this day was chosen and if it was scheduled before or after the death of Bin Laden.
Is it possible that President Obama is politicizing the death of Osama Bin Laden?
He invited George W Bush to join him. Bush declined. I'm sure the former president was wondering the same thing as I. Even Bill Clinton declined the invite.
Here's the thing. Regardless of Obama's intentions it looks tacky. It looks like a victory parade for himself. It looks like he's spiking the football. But no photos of dead Bin Laden.
In related news, the UN is now demanding all of the information regarding the assault into Pakistan that killed Bin Laden. They want to know if our action was legal according to international standards. That's funny.
It's funny that the UN portrays itself as a defender of international justice, even when it's the death of a homicidal maniac in question. Does anyone remember the last time the UN demanded information from the Palestinians for their attacks on Israel? Me neither. It's funny that the UN thinks they can demand anything from America. I would promptly tell them what they could do with their demands but I doubt Obama has the courage.
And in Pakistan, there are protests against America. You know, flag burning, we're the devil, etc. Apparently the Pakistani people have a problem with America killing one of the most evil human beings to ever draw breath. Isn't it about time we started calling it as we see it? Pakistan is a terrorist state. Yes, I said it.
They harbored the most notorious terrorist in world history. And now they are enraged over America's action to kill that terrorist. Yes, Pakistan is a terrorist state. And, by the way, they are also a nuclear state. Scary.
