President Barack Hussein Obama came under criticism across the political spectrum on the first anniversary of the SEAL Team Six raid that killed Osama bin Laden for politicizing the successful operation by touting the “gutsy call” he made to green-light the operation and suggesting that political rival Mitt Romney would have balked. For their part, the SEALs didn’t want the publicity because even their very existence is highly classified; they also objected to becoming shills for the president’s re-election. When a group called Veterans For a Strong America released a video slamming Obama for hogging all the credit (“Heroes don’t seek credit, Heroes don’t spike the football. Heroes put their lives on the line. And heroes don’t politicize their acts of valor.”), Democrats swiftly screamed “swiftboating.”
For his part, Vice President Joe Biden has repeatedly spiked the football. On innumerable occasions from a February 23rd speech in Manchester, NH, to his September 6th address before the Democratic National Convention, Vice President Joe Biden has bellowed: “‘Osama Bin Laden is dead, General Motors is alive.” After one such occasion, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney asserted that Biden wasn’t going overboard: “I think the way that we’ve handled it represents exactly the balance we need to strike.” Our Commander-in-Chief also didn’t think it was over-the-top to hold an interview with NBC News anchor Brian Williams about the bin Laden killing in the White House Situation Room.
The administration has been strenuously attempting to blame the wave of violent anti-American riots targeting U.S. embassies in 21 Muslim countries solely on an obscure You Tube video mocking Mohammad. But Obama and Biden may also have provoked the anti-American fervor by incessantly gloating over bin Laden’s death. A favorite rallying cry at violent anti-American demonstrations in Egypt, Kuwait, Lebanon, Tunisia and elsewhere is “Obama, Obama, we are all Osama,” which is clearly meant to taunt Obama that for every terrorist leader he kills hundreds more will spring up in his place. (And by the way, before the terrorist attack of our embassy in Benghazi, al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri urged jihadis to retaliate for the drone strike that killed two of his deputies, Atiyah Abd al-Rahman and Abu Yahya al-Libi, aLibyan.)
But if the Obama administration is genuinely convinced that a chintzy video no one had ever heard of could cause this much murder and mayhem, Breitbart Website Big Hollywood makes the case that the effect of a slick, big-budget Hollywood movie on how SEAL Team Six found and killed bin Laden would be several orders of magnitude more extreme:
[A]n excuse Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will not be able to use in the case of "Zero Dark Thirty" (as she did with "Innocence of Muslims") is the cowardly and self-righteous claim that the federal government and the Obama White House had nothing to do with "Zero Dark Thirty." Because the federal government and the Obama White House had everything to do with “Zero Dark Thirty” [emphasis in the original].
As we now know, in an effort to get this glitzy in-kind contribution (tens of millions of dollars) up on the screen in time to affect the election, it was the Obama Administration that gave the filmmakers tons of encouragement and a troubling amount of access to all kinds of classified material.
Big Hollywood recommends that the White House continue its assault on free speech rights film-makers and pressure Sony Pictures and director Kathryn Bigelow to shelve “Zero Dark Thirty” the same as they did Google and Nakoula Basseley Nakoula so as to prevent additional murders, rioting and virulent anti-Americanism.
Precisely!! Exceptionally good post outlining the facts about the Middle East uprising. Oblamer is to blame. End of story.
You forgot Hilary.
Do we log the Lybia Embassador as an Obozo dead body, or as a Clinton dead body? Or does it matter either way.
Like a bunch of damn spiders !
Obama is one of the Osamas.
He, not officially perhaps, but by association, appears to be a part of the muslim brotherhood. He sure associates with them enough.
Do you mean sub human deeds or is that a misstatement, and should it mean sub-human species.
