Osama Bin Laden Is Dead

The lamestream media told you:

Osama Bin Laden Is Dead. Osama Bin Laden Is Dead. Osama Bin Laden Is Dead. Osama Bin Laden Is Dead. Osama Bin Laden Is Dead. Osama Bin Laden Is Dead. Osama Bin Laden Is Dead. Osama Bin Laden Is Dead. Osama Bin Laden Is Dead. Osama Bin Laden Is Dead. Osama Bin Laden Is Dead. Osama Bin Laden Is Dead. Osama Bin Laden Is Dead. Osama Bin Laden Is Dead. Osama Bin Laden Is Dead.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The U.S. reporting on the apparent death of Osama Bin Laden was disgraceful. A single fact was used for endless hours of repetitious and vacuous reporting. No new news is big news to the “news” media, once big news is released.

The U.S. public was treated to thousands of repetitious images of a vile criminal smiling, shooting guns, holding meetings, teaching, walking -- it was a horrendous tribute to a horrendous criminal, remorselessly played for the public ad nauseum. The repetitious-image approach mimicked the "reporting" of the suspect in the Tucson shooting of Gabrielle Giffords for reasons that were unclear at press time.

Images of Navy Seals training, shooting, swimming, running, deploying in multiple environments from multiple departure vehicles --  the real heroes in the event -- were not shown, because there was no time left after all the stock images of the dead guy day after day, according to experts.

No facts emerged for days, especially the most important facts that were immediately available -- the reaction of Osama's supporters -- vicious and dedicated muslim enemies of the U.S. in nearly 70 nations.

We do know that when the twin towers were attacked in 2001, our muslim arch-enemies, who Mr. Obama assures us we are not at war with, were dancing in the streets and giving out candy. Virtually no muslim stood up to condemn the attack back then, casting doubt on Obama's Osama assertions.

According to at least half of America, Mr. Obama may believe we are not at war with muslims, but muslims believe they are at war with us.

Rumors of Americans now going about fully armed all the time, to deter possible muslim reprisals cannot be confirmed, since smartly armed people do not give up tactical advantage easily.

Al Jazeera TV, available to anyone with an Internet connection, ate the U.S. media's lunch on the issue. While American talking heads were speculating and pontificating, and congratulating themselves on the glorious but ten-year-late victory, Al Jazeera was on the ground in muslim country after muslim country, covering what's going on in the belly of the beast. No grandstand cheering could be found from the religion of peace, now that its most prominent figure was apparently disposed of and, in true Mafia style, turned into fish bait.

Contrary to the words of Mr. Obama, Osama bin laden was not brought to justice, a tasteful euphemism preferred by girliemen in a position of power. He was put to death, a significant difference, especially to the dead person, according to leading experts who refused to be identified. The same experts point out that Obama's Osama victory was due in large measure to Obama's predecessors. Obama's actions in office actually severely weakened our fight against muslims, a fact easily studied with a simple Google search (banning effective interrogations, reducing assets, changing language and terms to protect the religion of peace from oprobrium, etc.).

According to Al Jazeera sources, locals reported a heavy-duty mission underway, with multiple helicopters running with lights off. Contributors in Pakistan (pronounced pock-EE-ston according to Obama) had long believed he was long dead. No clear representation of how much ISI -- Pakistani intelligence -- were involved, and if they were, unclear what reprisals that might generate.

Real news agencies would have Arabic-speaking reporters attending mosques around the world and reporting on what was going on there, you think?
