Added to the certainty of death and taxes is the certainty that the mainstream media will give virtually all the credit for the death of Osama bin Laden to President Barack Obama. As it’s shilling for Obama continues right up to the 2012 presidential election, one would eventually be led to believe it was Obama himself who burst into bin Laden’s compound and shot him. But how differently the MSM would have played it if what happened Sunday had happened during the presidency of George W. Bush. The coverage might look something like this:
WASHINGTON—Continuing his crusade against the peaceful religion of Islam, President George W. Bush Sunday ordered a cowardly sneak attack on a Pakistan compound containing al Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.
Consistent with the Bush-Cheney tactic of targeting non-combatants, the raid resulted in the murder of an innocent woman and three men in addition to bin Laden, who understandably had armed himself in an attempt to save his life against overwhelming odds. Reminiscent of Davy Crockett at the Alamo, the al Qaida head courageously went down fighting despite knowing he had no chance to prevail against unfair firepower.
Navy SEALs who burst into the compound opened fire without reading Obama his Miranda rights, a breach typical of Bush’s contempt for the rule of law. In a blunder highlighting the incompetence of the U.S. military, of which Bush is commander-in-chief, a helicopter was destroyed in the raid resulting in a loss of millions of dollars to taxpayers.
Intelligence leading to the raid came from the heinous illegal torture of al Qaida victims held at Guantanamo. The raid itself was an illegal intrusion into a sovereign country, tecnically an act of war against Pakistan.
The thunderous noise of the U.S. helicopters caused great consternation to neighbors of the compound who had been trying to enjoy a good night’s sleep, particularly terrifying women and children.
The million-dollar compound where the murders took place is similar to the mansions where Bush’s rich friends live, having benefited financially from no-bid contracts awarded them by the administration, as well as gleaning riches from various other Bush and Cheney-related shady deals.
As word of bin Laden’s murder spread, the “Ugly American” the world so hates showed its face in the form of disgusting celebrations in front of the White House, in New York’s Times Square and at Ground Zero. The bloodthirsty mobs grew throughout the night, reveling in the death of a fellow human being.
With bin Laden’s skin color being darker than Bush’s, the long-held belief that the president is racist is now confirmed. In an ironic twist, bin Laden’s death occurred on May 1, the same date as the death of Adolph Hitler, a tyrant to whom Bush has often been compared.
