Truther Reactions to Death of Osama
No surprise here, they are predictably paranoid and schizophrenic. Alex Floum, aka George Washington, wonders why he wasn't killed almost ten years ago:
President Obama announced tonight that U.S. special forces killed Osama Bin Laden.
That's great ... but we could have killed him years ago.
Kevin Barrett takes the 180 degree opposite approach. We did kill him almost ten years ago:
Bin Laden has almost certainly been dead since December 2001, when far more reliable reports of his death were published. That means the guy they killed and threw in the ocean must have either been a ghost, or one of Bin Laden's many reported doubles.
David Ray Griffin is no doubt wearing a black armband:
Beside the fact, that this picture, and you know you can't go much by a picture, but I read a lot about him, and he was known as a very remarkable young man. As a student at school, when people would say, have a bet or something where they needed people to hold money, it was always bin Laden that they would give it to, because he was the one person that everybody could trust. He was known as a very pious, honest person. And the fact that we have made him into this demon is probably a terrible thing that we have done to his memory.
No word yet on who will hold the bet money in the future.
Over at Flogger, there's a wide variety of comments:
Even my wife today was texting all her friends and relatives about what an obviously sham story this bin Laden news was. Ha!...She remarked about "how convenient" to wait until after The Royal Wedding.
Is it a prelude to another 9/11? I think we have to be very wary that it just might be.
Some idiots wonder why he wasn't taken alive:
Why didn't any Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) sharp shooters (the best in the world) hit Bin Laden in his gun hand, or his kidney dialysis machine. They could have captured him alive, to collect the $25 million reward. Plus, there was an $2 million bonus from the Airline Pilots Association.
James Arness could easily have shot his gun hand. From the hip, no less. As we've often noted, the Truthers seem to get their ideas of how things work from movies and TV.
We're the real terrorists:
Osama Bin Laden the terrorist SUSPECT! who has never been convicted of any crime in any American court,along with his son who has never been convicted of anything in his entire life and a few women who were innocent civilians have been killed by terrorists.
