Bush Administration Determined Not To React To Bin Laden Warnings Comments (1)

Kurt Eichenwald writes in The New York Times that the negligence on the part of the Bush Administration leading up to 9/11 was far worse than is already known. Using his knowledge of classified and declassified memos leading up to the infamous "Bin Laden Determined to Attack" memo that Condoleeza Rice—impossibly, sill a right-wing fave—blithely testified about to Congress, Eichenwald presents a damning article that should make every American's blood boil.

I Played Footsie With Osama bin Laden Comments (3)

Globe (May 30, 2011) continues in the fine tabloid tradition of labeling every famous monster gay. I remember clearly that the 9/11 hijackers were said to have gone to a gay strip bar and to have been gay, now Osama bin Laden was gay. He just had the five wives to "hide his lust for men."

An aide to a congressman is anonymously quoted as saying of a meeting he had with bin Laden in the late '80s:

"He was introduced to me as 'Tim Osman,' which was the name the CIA had assigned him. He had short hair, was clean-shaven and dressed in khaki cargo pants and a Polo sweater. He was  traveling on a Turkish passport. We met to discuss the selling of U.S. Stinger anti-aircraft missiles to Afghanistan. Afterward, I took him to a restaurant where we shared a booth. His leg rubbed against mine, but I figured it was because he was so tall. When it happened a few times, I began to get the feeling he was hitting on me. Then he wet his lips and batted his eyelashes—and there was no doubt what he was after."

The source goes on to say bin Laden asked where to find the Ripcord Club, "Houston's infamous leather boy disco."

An instantly iconic image of the president, Secretary of State and others at the very top of the U.S. government watching Osama bin Laden get gunned down via live feed. Incredible.

Obama 2012 Comments (7)

President Obama is about to announce that Osama bin Laden has been killed via U.S. military strike, and that we have positively IDed him. And have his body. (Which I'm sure more than 50% of the U.S. would like to see dragged through the streets.)

My political post title aside, this is just bliss.

This may lead to retaliation, but this needed to happen. He deserved to be hunted down and killed. Now it's done.

Now, President Obama...where is death certificate???

Daughter Of The Anti-American Revolution Comments (0)

Wait, I thought President Obama was supposed to be so weak on fighting terrorism...? If so, why have we killed or arrested so many al-Qaeda and Taliban figures in the past year? Now that we have that bastard American terrorist in custody thanks to Pakistan, perhaps the president can look forward to praise from the daughter of the former vice president.

Liz cheney Oh, wait, I forgot—nobody fucking cares about the opinions of the daughter of the former vice president—who is considered too extreme even for the extremists on the American right. In my opinion, her crazy anti-government chatter is what aides and abets this kind of behavior. So who's the terrorism sympathizer?

I wonder how the right wing will react when we capture or kill Osama bin Laden, other than to scream that he'll probably be read Miranda rights?

UPDATE: Different American terrorist, same questions.
