Makes perfect sense. I bet Osama's "suicide jacket" was smelling a bit rank after almost ten years. Or maybe he's got a different one for each day of the week.

Heck, this is Pakistan we're talking about. There was probably a special dry-cleaning service for "suicide jackets."

No one looked at the consequences of KILLING UBL
1. Obama made Pakistan look like fools.
2.He's making us look like idiots by telling 25 different stories.
3.Imagine all the intel that we could have gotten.
4.We blew up the wrong end of the chopper.
5.Taliban and Pakistan will join forces and kill our troops.
6.What are we doing with POW's over there? killing them after they surrender?
I will say that UBL should have died. By my hands. At a later date in public.

<quoted text>Ron Paul is the answer to this country's problems as he is the ONLY politician who would end both parties' corrupt policies. He says both parties ran up this debt, he says the Dems agree to run up debt on welfare programs and the Repubs agree to run up debt on wars for profits for corporations. Bush did 9/11 with the Saudis so he could invade Iraq for the oil. Bush tried to assasinate Chavez in Venezuela to gain control of the oil in Venezuela, and when he failed, he had only Saddam he could go after in order to secure the oil in Iraq. Chavez and Saddam were Bush's oil problems. If 9/11 did not happen, Bush would have had no way to invade Iraq. The Bush family and Bin Laddin families are in the same financial groups, the Bush family is in with the Saudi Royal Family. All of the 9/11 terrorists were Saudis. Bush got Bin Laddin's family members out of the U.S. within 9 days after 9/11, as soon as there were flights out of the country. Bush never got Bin Laddin. 9/11 happened under Bush's watch. Then the Republicans sell it and sell it that they are the only ones who can protect us. OMG. The Bush family has had a lot more than 3,000 people killed over protecting the Bush family money. Bush I killed lots of people over a leader in So. America having info about his son snorting coke and having sex with prostitutes, I think it was 4,000 people Bush I killed over covering up what George W. was doing. George W. killed 3,000 Americans to get the oil in Iraq, spent 1.5 trillion on it, which made his buddies very wealthy. He killed over 100,000 innocent people in Iraq over it, and another 4,500 American military people over the oil in Iraq. That's how the Bushes role. Mass murder everyone who gets in the way of huge profits for them. You have to wonder how many billions of dollars the Bush family made from George W.'s polices. His father owns the company that our government bought guns, etc. from for the Iraq war. His family owns the tests for No Child Left Behind. His family owns stocks in big Pharma, so when he made the free meds for seniors deal, his stock values went way up. He has hella stocks in Haliburton, their stock values tripled over the contracts Haliburton got from Bush in Iraq. Their Exxon and BP stocks went way up when Exxon and BP got ahold of the oil field in Iraq. We "lost" 9 billion dollars in Iraq. It had to go to someone, I'm sure that went to Bush too. His family probably made 50 billion, maybe 100 billion dollars when Bush was in office over those 8 years.
Ron Paul would put a stop to both parties corrupt, disgusting programs.
Bravo , you are soooo right ! Ron Paul 2012

That's one nice thing about the Saddam Hussein trial. The locals hated the guy, and strung him up. The world saw him hanging from a rope, and there was no question that Saddam is dead.

There is always a question... Get in the habit of adding a question mark after any "official" statement made by our government and military.

The Iraqi locals may have hated Saddam, but I seriously doubt that they liked the foreign invaders/occupiers more, particularly since these invaders at one time armed Saddam.

If "bin Laden" had gone to trial, we might have gotten an eyeful of the not-so-distant CIA years, or the fact that the FBI has little connecting "bin Laden" to 9/11, or the fact that American funds and arms STILL go to the Taliban and "al Qaeda" through American allies in the region with the full knowledge and support of the Pentagon.

But WE didn't make the official statement that Saddam was dead. Some d00d with a cellphone in the crowd caught it. That's far more plausible to me than "we tossed his body in the water because, um, it was the right thing to do? fumble fumble fumble I forgot all the details."

Now everyone on the news channels is repeating what ron Paul has been saying for 15 years. One is on right now talking about the gold standard, another one is talking about how the Fed ruined the economy and has no more tricks it can pull to temporarily prop the economy back up. Ron Paul was right about all of it, all of it. Now everything he said is coming to pass. People on Fox and on MSNBC are now repeating what he has said for 15 years. So, since his IQ is far, far above all the rest of the politicians, and since he is the only one who had the courage to tell the American people the truth for the last 15 years, why don't we just elect him president so someone smart and honest can solve our real problems?

LOL. And you call others dumasses.

The ACLU would have had him free on a month. You say 'rule of law'.
What happened to cruell and unusual punishment?

What happened to a quick and speedy trial?

And lastly, what was the seal to do, let him shoot before shooting him?
