Osama's Death: Hard Pill to Swallow

So, a small group of U.S. government officials are reported to have found, killed and genetically identified Bin Laden...

then the body was quickly thrown into the sea, so, unfortunately, no outsider could corroborate...

because the body had to be "buried" in under 24 hours, to be in accordance with Muslim custom...

and the U.S. government has been extremely sensitive toward Muslim beliefs and customs...

flushing and burning Qurans...

exposing Muslim POW's to graphic sexual acts...

preventing the bodies of average Muslims from being buried for weeks following bombing raids, etc...

unfortunately, the burial at sea was likely a violation of Muslim customs...

an easier solution might have been an unmarked grave...

but, then people would start asking crazy questions like "Why can't we see the body?"...

so, into the ocean, I guess...

of course, it was reported previously that Bin Laden died of natural causes in December of 2001. I mean, he was a pretty sickly old man, with kidney and other physiological problems...

and the Taliban even admitted to this, so no heroic martyr's death there...

not to mention, the guy in the videos released over the last decade doesn't even look like Bin Laden...

I mean, OBL had a narrow nose and the guy in the videos looked like he had a pair of wine corks stuffed up his nostrils...

and let's not talk about how he suddenly became the Grim Pirate Blackbeard...

but while we're on the question of who admitted to what...

On September 16, 2001, Bin Laden released an official statement denying that he was involved in the attacks, accusing the U.S. government of using him as a bogeyman...

Now, I'm not saying that he wasn't, and I'm definitely NOT saying that I am sure of whether or not Muslims even involved in the 9/11 attacks, because the evidence on both sides is far too murky, with disinformation flowing like wine at a wedding...

but, we've got this story from the weekend of May 1, 2011...

about this guy who was killed, rather than arrested...

supposedly...

even though he had been reported dead almost ten years earlier...

whose body was dropped into the ocean...

thus destroying the evidence of his "capture"...

who on at least one occasion is reported to have denied being behind the attacks on 9/11...

and who was never charged with the attacks...

but that isn't important, because there won't ever be a trial...

All of this just so happened to occur on the weekend when Bush the IV (Barack Obama) officially launched his campaign for re-election...

gas prices were at a record high (and climbing),

a few days earlier, major campaign contributing corporations opened their books to reveal they didn't pay any taxes in 2010 and reaped record profits...

the economy for regular, non-corporation people is in the tank...

and television sweeps month kicked off...

On top of it all...

we're now being told we're even LESS safe than we were before Bin Laden's death...

you read that right, "LESS SAFE"...

so "security" has to be even MORE invasive...

liberties have to be even FURTHER compromised...

the U.S. government needs even GREATER funding...

I'm sorry if I've gone on a bit long, but there's a lot to consider...

this is the same government that lied about the Lusitania...

the same government that lied about the Gulf of Tonkin...

the same government that lied about the "bombing" of the Maine...

the same government that said Saddam had ties to Al Qaeda, then denied that they ever said it, despite the video evidence showing them doing so...

the same government that told us Iraq would be a "cake walk"...

the same government that drafted "Operation North Woods"...

the same government that was once allied with Saddam "The Butcher of Baghdad" Hussein and Joe "Million Man Death-March" Stalin...

the same government that hired Osama Bin Laden to do to the Russians what he is alleged to have done to America...

and now I'm supposed to accept, on their word alone, that they killed OBL this past weekend, despite everything else I've seen and read and heard?

Forgive my skepticism, but no.

I'm too old for faerie tales.
