OBL Gets His Just Desserts

By Greg L | 1 May 2011 | National Politics | 27 Comments

A Navy SEAL team killed Osama Bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan on Sunday, closing a chapter in the Global War on Terror.  While this is a very welcome development, it’s doubtful that there’s a whole lot of real meaning in this.  Other than our instinctive relief that a terrorist mastermind who had evaded being held to account for so long is now dead, Bin Laden has been operationally ineffective for many years now and this development changes very little from our national security perspective.  The war on terror continues.

I feel somewhat let down that such a development seems to lack the kind of meaning I would have expected it would have for me.  An old, broke-down terrorist leader is gone.  Of that I am relieved, but I’m still going to be subjected to intrusive bodily inspections at the airport, I’ll still be seeing stories about how foreign nationals from middle eastern countries are being smuggled across our southern border, and there will be other incidents of terrorism by radical islamists such as those responsible for Fort Hood, the underwear bomber, and Times Square.  This just doesn’t likely change a whole lot.

Kudos to the SEAL Team that pulled this off, though.  An operation like this is fraught with risk and they appear to have performed admirably, in the highest traditions of the service.

    SEAL Team Six out of Oceana pulled the triggers here. Nice work from a Virginia-based military unit!

    Greg:

    Bravo Zulu (Navy lingo for Job Well Done) to our Navy SEALs. I’m glad that we have proven the point, if you harm us, we will eventually get you, no matter what it takes. However, I do agree that this is only a small but greatly symbolic step in the right direction in the War on Terror. However, we need to be especially careful for those who may want to retaliate for Bin Laden or have been given instructions to attack if he was killed.

    From CNN,

    “Four others in the compound were also killed. One of them was bin Laden’s adult son, and another was a woman being used as a shield by a male combatant, the officials said.”

    Courageous bunch that al-Queda is. Sucker punch us on 9/11 killing civilians, women, children and even other Muslims, then hide out in caves and behind women.

    Congratulations to the American heroes who took out this despicable piece of ****! The world is a better place today.

    Here is the likely location of the raid yesterday. Local sources are claiming a helicopter was shot down during the operation, but that hasn’t been confirmed.

    The main stream media got this whole thing wrong. From a reliable source I learned that Corey Stewart found Bin Laden in a townhouse up for short sale in Woodbridge and in hand to hand combat Stewart bit Bin Laden’s ear off and Bin Laden bled to death. Stewart then put Bin Laden’s body through a wood chipper, the traditional Muslim burial procedure, Bin Laden is now fertilizer for the trees at th county center.

    Regarding the chopper…apparently it was a two chopper mission, and they were supposed to hover and lower the SEALS. Chopper #1 had mechanical issues and landed. Chopper #3 came in from Reserve. The SEALS departed with OBL corpse on Choppers #2 and #3 but blew up Chopper #1.

    All this happening while the Pakistani’s are scrambling pursuit aircraft because they don’t know what’s happening…

    Something’s fishy about this. I want to see pics, and the sooner the better. Why didn’t the team stay on the compound and secure it? It would have tremendous intelligence value. Something’s not right.

    Harry,

    Is it true that Corey had to get rabies shots?

    Latest news says the raiding team recovered lots of stuff and that DNA tests were a match for OBL. Something’s still fishy. How’d they get DNA testing done so quickly? Where’s the pics? I wanna see some bona fides.

    Now that Trump forced 0bama’s hand w.r.t. the Birth Certificate, 0bama needs to create another conspiracy so that anyone who wants to see the evidence, rather than just taking 0bama at his word, can be cast as a racist.

    With all of the equipment already on hand DNA can be done in about 4 hours.

    As for the “proof”: Just like with the birth certificate…the people that matter got the proof and the rest of you closet birthers have a new shiney thing to keep your attention from finding a candidate who can beat him.

    Now, added to the birthers, we have he deathers.

    And, we’ll soon have a video of the president’s birth.

    We’ll have video of OBL’s head.

    We’ll have a video room to room description of OBL’s compound.
    Detailed description of window treatments and color scheme.

    RE: your title

    Not sure he is capable of enjoying his “just desserts” on this plane of existence.

    And I understand that it’s just a rumor that the SEAL team leader greeted the SOB with “Greetings from George W. Bush!”

    Bin Laden has been operationally ineffective for many years now - really now, you should have told us sooner, we could have saved time and lives.

    KUDOS to the Team that succeeded, and to all others who have fought to right a wrong.

    They said he was tossed off an aircraft carrier, but it was likely an LPH. If it was an aircraft carrier they should have catapulted his naked body off the bow, and then plowed over him to let the screws do the rest.

    Agreed, Maureen. That probably has rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

    Maureen, we didn’t respect HIS customs. We respeccted the customs of many of those who helped catch and kll him. You know there are one or two Muslims in the US military. The professionals kill them and that is the end of it. Antagonizing the radical yahoos is something we leave to people like that idiot preacher who burns Korans while assuming that HE is safe from retribution.

    In a perplexing development ignored by the mainstream media, the Obama Administration suspended tens of thousands of deportations last year and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano lied to a Senate committee to cover up the astounding figure.

    Napolitano told the Senate Judiciary Committee that has oversight over the Department of Homeland Security that her agency halted the deportation of only 900 illegal immigrants in fiscal year 2010. She did admit that the figure could be higher because it excludes “deferred action” granted to illegal immigrants for “humanitarian” reasons.

    Not surprisingly, Madame Secretary never indicated how much higher the figure could be, which may lead many to conclude that she purposely deceived federal lawmakers. It turns out that the Obama Administration halted the deportation of 34,448 illegal immigrants last year, according to Homeland Security figures obtained independently by a Senator (Charles Grassley of Iowa) who sits on the Judiciary Committee.

    After the Senate hearing, which took place last month in Washington D.C., Napolitano’s own staff corrected her atrocious lie, according to Senator Grassley’s press secretary, who provided Judicial Watch with the accurate number. According to Homeland Security figures provided to Senator Grassley’s staff, the combined deferred action and paroles of illegal immigrants in 2010 amounted to 34,448.

    This appears to be part of the administration’s secret amnesty plan in case Congress doesn’t pass legislation to legalize the nation’s 12 million illegal immigrants. Devised by political appointees at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the plan aims to enact “meaningful immigration reform absent legislative action.”

    This includes delaying deportation indefinitely (“deferred action”), granting green cards, allowing illegal immigrants to remain in the U.S. indefinitely while they seek legal status (known as “parole in place”) and expanding the definition of “extreme hardships” so any illegal alien could meet the criteria and remain in the country.

    Last summer the Obama Administration ordered authorities to stop removing illegal immigrants who are students while lawmakers craft legislation to officially shield them from expulsion. The move, which has spared an estimated 700,000 illegal aliens, came in response to nationwide rallies by defiant illegal immigrants protesting their eminent removal or that of their undocumented parents.

    Judicial Watch has sued the Department of Homeland Security to obtain records detailing the stealth amnesty plan because the agency has ignored a federal public records request that dates back to

    Everyone responsible for his capture, death and burial should be commended. That has to include our former President, George W. Bush, who began the search for OBL and kept all of us safe post 9/11, during his tenure.

    God bless the USA!

    from Ann Coulter’s column:

    One important missed clue was that Osama was living at 72 Virgins Way. He might still be alive today if only he hadn’t borrowed his neighbor’s shoulder-mounted rocket launcher and never returned it.

    Our mighty Navy SEALs not only put a bullet through Osama’s head, but carried off his computers, disks and hard drives. So far, all they’ve revealed is that Osama had multiple Netflix rentals of “Rendition,” “In the Valley of Elah,” “Fahrenheit 9/11″ and “Love Actually.”

    Can you imagine what’s on Osama’s hard drives? I mean besides the goat pornography. Pants are wetting throughout Pakistan’s military establishment.
