Obama, Osama, and the Deep Blue Sea
The White House Refuses To Release Photos of Bin Laden’s Death
They will not release any real hard evidence proving that Osama bin Laden is actually dead!
The Obama Administration disrespects the American people!
-by Scott Rohter, May 2011

Caught, shot, killed, and buried at sea in a single day!  It took almost ten years to find Osama bin Laden, but less than ten hours to kill him, dispose of his body, and all of the evidence of his death, without leaving so much as a single trace!  Mission Accomplished!  If you believe their story.  Now just move on.  Oh, they will probably give us some time to get used to the idea that the terrorist mastermind is dead.  I mean why not?  It’s good publicity for the President while he makes all of his photo ops!  But then we are just supposed to move along.  There will be NO BODY to view.  Supposedly it would be too horrible to see and just too traumatic for the world!  There will be NO VIDEO to watch, even though they made sure that there is one! (There are actually twenty five different videos, one for each of the Navy Seals who were outfitted with head cameras, who went in there to get Osama bin Laden!) There will be NO STILL PHOTOGRAPHS to stare at over and over again, until we convince ourselves that OBL is actually dead!  There will be no convincing evidence of any kind for the American people to consider, to prove to themselves that this guy is no longer with us in the ‘Land of the Living!’  All we have is the Obama Administration’s word for it!  And on any other day that word doesn’t mean too much!  The only ones who know the whole truth, maybe, are Obama, Osama, and the Deep Blue Sea!

If the mission actually happened the way they said that it did, then why doesn’t the Obama Administration just release the photos, and the video, and put the entire matter to rest!  But then which way did it happen?  The way they told the story the first time , the second time, or the third time?  Hell, the story has changed so many times since they first began telling it, that I’m not sure even they know what actually happened!  Good thing there is a video though! (I mean twenty-five videos). Oh I almost forgot, we are not allowed to see it!

First we were told that there was a forty-minute firefight, and everybody inside the compound was armed to the teeth, including bin Laden.  Then we were told that bin Laden was not armed at all, but he was hiding behind a woman, until she single handedly rushed our soldiers.  Then she was shot in the leg, and Osama was shot in the head!  I ask myself why would anyone shoot somebody in the leg, and an unarmed terrorist mastermind in the head?  You are always taught to shoot into the center of mass, right through the middle, where you won’t likely miss!  Legs don’t make good targets and they are usually moving!  As far as shooting bin Laden in the head goes, if I had one shot at the Al-Qaeda leader, I wouldn’t want to miss, so I would aim for dead center, right through the heart!  After all, dead is dead, whether it’s a shot through the head, or right through the heart!  He will be dead just the same.  But I’m less likely to miss my target if I aim for the middle of the chest, so let’s assume that bin Laden was shot in the chest first.  If he was still alive they could have shot him again right through the heart.  That would have been a fitting end for the world’s most wanted terrorist, since he really didn’t have any heart anyway!  I'm sure that's what the families of the victims of 9/11 would say! And then we would have had a perfectly good, identifiable body, to prove to the whole world that Osama bin Laden is dead! 

Why shoot him again in the head?  Well, if you don’t want to produce a corpse, or you can't produce a corpse, and you also need a plausible excuse why you can’t release any pictures of his body, or the video of his killing, that would serve as a plausible excuse!  Apparently they didn’t want him talking to anyone, and they also didn't want to produce his body! ...or they couldn't!  Shame on you Mr. President, for deliberately withholding the proof of Osama bin Laden’s death (if he actually is dead, or if he actually was even still living at the time of his alleged death) from the American people, while you and your Administration have seen whatever there is to see, and know whatever there is to know!  The American people who have funded this seemingly un-ending War on Terror for almost ten years now, deserve much better than to be kept in the dark!  We shouldn‘t have to just take your word for it, Mr. President!  There are many Americans who simply won’t believe it just because you say so!  Many Americans won’t believe it until they see it with their own eyes!  Your arrogance shows a profound lack of respect for the American people whom you serve!  Withholding evidence that would corroborate your Administration’s claim that Osama bin Laden is dead, will only deny closure to skeptical minds, and it will NOT ultimately put an end to this sad chapter in our Nation’s history!  Mr. President, you need to come clean with the American people!  You promised us the most transparent administration in recent history! I want full disclosure!  It is only your elitist arrogance that presumes that the general public doesn’t need to know or deserve to know what actually happened there in Abottabad Pakistan, something that you and your administration already know!  We already have enough conspiracy theories floating around, going all the way back to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln! We don’t need any more conspiracy theories!

I can understand the motivation to bury bin Laden’s lifeless corps at sea, and to keep the location secret and inaccessible, in order to keep his final resting place from becoming a potential Muslim holy site!  But Mr. President, you have a solemn obligation to the American people to provide some convincing proof that Osama bin Laden is actually dead, and not just your word for it!  It is disrespectful for you to do anything else.  And it is very presumptuous of our Nation’s political elite to expect the American people to believe any thing that they say anymore on face value, after what they try to pull all year long in Washington D.C.!  They fabricate, spin, and weave stories that would make a nun blush, and they lie to the American people about everything under the sun, from how many barrels of crude oil are leaking into the Gulf of Mexico from the ruptured Deep Water Horizon, to how many billions of dollars the Nation is going deeper into debt every single day!  Now we are just supposed to suspend our incredulity, and believe your Administration, when they tell us that Osama bin Laden is dead.  (He was killed and buried at sea where no one can ever find his lifeless corps again, and we just have to accept your word for it.)  Where is the proof?  I’d say with all due respect Mr. President, that is not good enough!  Your word is no better today than it was last month, or last year!  And that wasn’t very good!  Show us the proof, Mr. President, that Osama bin Laden is dead!  The American People deserve to see the proof!
