The Paranoid Guide to Better Living: Osama bin Laden is Dead - Page 2
Regardless, now we have to chew our collective national security nails, as we wonder if there will be an immediate retaliation by terrorists around the world. Frankly, I hope they all just slap on some explosive vests and blow themselves up in their living rooms. That'll show us. Do that. Of course, they'll deny that it even happened. Even after the body is shown to the world.
Note: Wolf Blitzer just reported on a phone call that Biden made. Stay classy Wolf.
Finally Obama speaks, "The United States has conducted an operation that has killed Osama bin Laden." After the initial statement, Obama spoke on the loss felt after 9/11, by those we didn't see. The families, those directed affected by the losses. He spoke about being united as one American family, in our resolve to protect our nation and bring those responsible to justice. Obama made sure to praise our armed forces, and intelligence community.
Obama made sure to point out that when he took office he made catching or killing bin Laden the number one priority of the CIA. Last August he was briefed on a possible lead on bin Laden, and it took months to develop the lead. Finally, last month Obama had enough intelligence to follow the lead. According to Obama, bin Laden was in fact killed today after a short fire-fight.
No matter the cynicism, timing or paranoia - the death of bin Laden matters to the American people. This man was responsible for the worst act of terrorism on United States soil in history. He's been behind the deaths of innocents all over the world and in the United States. His death should be recognized as a significant event in history, as inspirational and important. Also, a huge high five needs to go out to all our forces in Afghanistan, Iraq and all over the world. We are proud of everything you are doing to protect and serve our country.
As a closing note, NBC interrupted Celebrity Apprentice with the news about Obama's speech. Ha. Trump got trumped. I guess the only question now, is when is the movie coming out? Paranoia out.
