Some significant notes concerning Bin Laden's death

The very first place you should go is Hot Air because of the time­line in the post. Note how the var­i­ous reports con­tinue to dif­fer until the cor­rect news comes out.

Very impor­tant point made on Morn­ing Joe (which started early) “If this had been a joint oper­a­tion it would have been leaked.”

On Tim Blair’s blog some words of mourn­ing from Rap­pers and ultra left­ists, I’d be inter­ested in the reac­tion in Dearborn.

This head­line is amusing:


Sus­pi­cions grow over whether Pak­istan aided Osama bin Laden

Well DUH! Even the Morn­ing Joe crowd get it, we’ve actu­ally been fight­ing Pak­istan with­out being at war with Pak­istan because nei­ther side wants an actual full-​scale war. It will be inter­est­ing to see the reac­tion in parts of England.

That he was sta­tion­ary speaks volumes.

Michelle Malkin reports some are already play­ing games with this.

My only polit­i­cal com­ment will be this. After the vic­tory in Gulf War 1, Pres­i­dent Bush’s approval rat­ing was in the 90’s.

Ok one more, biggest loser on this is Don­ald Trump.

Joe Scar­bor­ough points out that the pres­i­dent con­tin­ued Bush poli­cies and the objec­tions that led to.

Expect updates.

Oops:

Update: This bit of news doesn’t sur­prise me:

One woman was killed when she was used as a shield by one of the combatants

Stan­dard oper­at­ing procedure.

Mika asked about a back­lash? Back­lash? Are we wor­ried that Al Qaeda will try to kill us for killing Bin Laden as opposed to killing us for every other rea­son they used before?

The amount to troops involved, the amount of train­ing and prac­tice involved and the suc­cess of keep­ing this quiet speaks vol­umes about this oper­a­tion. A real class act.

Update:
Inter­est­ing State­ments from the Vat­i­can

Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden will have to answer to God for hav­ing killed many peo­ple and exploit­ing reli­gion to spread hate, the Vat­i­can said on Monday.

Spokesman Father Fed­erico Lom­bardi said that while Chris­tians “do not rejoice” over a death, it serves to remind them of “each person’s respon­si­bil­ity before God and men”.

Osama bin Laden, as every­one knows, had the grave respon­si­bil­ity of hav­ing spread divi­sion and hate among peo­ple, caus­ing the deaths of an innu­mer­able num­ber of peo­ple and exploit­ing reli­gion for these pur­poses,” he said.

That’s as close to a God wills it! moment that you will get these days from the Holy See.

The fact that they got the body out is really some­thing. This entire oper­a­tion was about as per­fect as you can get.

Update: Uncov​er​age​.net notes some­thing that was reported last year:

18th Octo­ber 2010

Osama bin Laden is liv­ing a com­fort­able life and hid­ing out in a house in north­west Pak­istan, accord­ing to Nato officials.

The Al Qaeda leader has not been scut­tled away to a net­work of caves, but instead is liv­ing life as the world’s most wanted man in con­ven­tional surroundings.

I guess the reac­tion of Bin Laden folks must have been. “Nobody reads the Daily Mail.”

Update: Deb­bie Lee son was the first Navy Seal killed in Iraq, this one is for her.

The Wash­ing­ton post reports Pak­istan is down­play­ing their role in this oper­a­tion, of course they are, their role was “the enemy”.

Update: The com­ments at moveon​.org are… inter­est­ing, As for the post at the Nation I sug­gest my entry above con­cern­ing Bush I and his post Iraq 1 rat­ings, com­ments on fire­doglake are rather inter­est­ing too.

Palin’s state­ment, and RSM notes that it was the Navy that got him and the Smitty is deployed over there, HMMM.

Update: POWIP (via glenn); exactly right:

…we have to give credit to the Pres­i­dent for “green-​lighting” the oper­a­tion inside of Pak­istan itself. He took a great polit­i­cal risk by doing so; can you imag­ine the neg­a­tive fall­out if this had gone south? Too, it also once again demon­strates to our friends and foes alike the con­ti­nu­ity of our resolve to see the ene­mies of our nation van­quished, regard­less of who is sit­ting in the oval office.

I don’t agree with Mr. Obama on most issues in regards to both domes­tic and for­eign pol­icy, and will prob­a­bly con­tinue to have my dif­fer­ences. But tonight, he com­ported him­self in a way that tran­scended polit­i­cal divi­sion; in the man­ner the Amer­i­can Pres­i­dent is sup­posed to do when it comes to our national secu­rity and met­ing out jus­tice to our ene­mies . He was mea­sured, and didn’t exploit the moment to pat him­self on the back nor declare vic­tory in the war on ter­ror; and classy to con­tact for­mer Pres­i­dents Clin­ton and Bush prior to going on national TV.

Update: Yeah this excuse is going to fly:

I just got off the phone with Husain Haqqani, Pakistan’s ambas­sador to the United States, who was adamant that Pak­istan assisted the U.S. in locat­ing Bin Laden, and who responded to crit­i­cism that Pak­istan should have been able to locate Bin Laden by not­ing Amer­i­can law enforcement’s dif­fi­culty in cap­tur­ing wanted crim­i­nals inside the U.S. He made spe­cific ref­er­ence to the noto­ri­ous Boston gang­land fig­ure James J. “Whitey” Bul­ger: “If Whitey Bul­ger can live unde­tected by Amer­i­can police for so long, why can’t Osama Bin Laden live unde­tected by Pak­istani authorities?”

Please!

The very first place you should go is Hot Air because of the timeline in the post. Note how the various reports continue to differ until the correct news comes out.

Very important point made on Morning Joe (which started early) “If this had been a joint operation it would have been leaked.”

On Tim Blair’s blog some words of mourning from Rappers and ultra leftists, I’d be interested in the reaction in Dearborn.

This headline is amusing:


Suspicions grow over whether Pakistan aided Osama bin Laden

Well DUH! Even the Morning Joe crowd get it, we’ve actually been fighting Pakistan without being at war with Pakistan because neither side wants an actual full-scale war. It will be interesting to see the reaction in parts of England.

That he was stationary speaks volumes.

Michelle Malkin reports some are already playing games with this.

My only political comment will be this. After the victory in Gulf War 1, President Bush’s approval rating was in the 90′s.

Ok one more, biggest loser on this is Donald Trump.

Joe Scarborough points out that the president continued Bush policies and the objections that led to.

Expect updates.

Update: This bit of news doesn’t surprise me:

One woman was killed when she was used as a shield by one of the combatants

Standard operating procedure.

Mika asked about a backlash? Backlash? Are we worried that Al Qaeda will try to kill us for killing Bin Laden as opposed to killing us for every other reason they used before?

The amount to troops involved, the amount of training and practice involved and the success of keeping this quiet speaks volumes about this operation. A real class act.

Update:
Interesting Statements from the Vatican

Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden will have to answer to God for having killed many people and exploiting religion to spread hate, the Vatican said on Monday.

Spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said that while Christians “do not rejoice” over a death, it serves to remind them of “each person’s responsibility before God and men”.

“Osama bin Laden, as everyone knows, had the grave responsibility of having spread division and hate among people, causing the deaths of an innumerable number of people and exploiting religion for these purposes,” he said.

That’s as close to a God wills it! moment that you will get these days from the Holy See.

The fact that they got the body out is really something. This entire operation was about as perfect as you can get.

Update: Uncoverage.net notes something that was reported last year:

18th October 2010

Osama bin Laden is living a comfortable life and hiding out in a house in northwest Pakistan, according to Nato officials.

The Al Qaeda leader has not been scuttled away to a network of caves, but instead is living life as the world’s most wanted man in conventional surroundings.

I guess the reaction of Bin Laden folks must have been. “Nobody reads the Daily Mail.”

Update: Debbie Lee son was the first Navy Seal killed in Iraq, this one is for her.

The Washington post reports Pakistan is downplaying their role in this operation, of course they are, their role was “the enemy”.

Update: The comments at moveon.org are… interesting, As for the post at the Nation I suggest my entry above concerning Bush I and his post Iraq 1 ratings, comments on firedoglake are rather interesting too.

Palin’s statement, and RSM notes that it was the Navy that got him and the Smitty is deployed over there, HMMM.

Update: POWIP (via glenn); exactly right:

…we have to give credit to the President for “green-lighting” the operation inside of Pakistan itself. He took a great political risk by doing so; can you imagine the negative fallout if this had gone south? Too, it also once again demonstrates to our friends and foes alike the continuity of our resolve to see the enemies of our nation vanquished, regardless of who is sitting in the oval office.

I don’t agree with Mr. Obama on most issues in regards to both domestic and foreign policy, and will probably continue to have my differences. But tonight, he comported himself in a way that transcended political division; in the manner the American President is supposed to do when it comes to our national security and meting out justice to our enemies . He was measured, and didn’t exploit the moment to pat himself on the back nor declare victory in the war on terror; and classy to contact former Presidents Clinton and Bush prior to going on national TV.

Update: Yeah this excuse is going to fly:

I just got off the phone with Husain Haqqani, Pakistan’s ambassador to the United States, who was adamant that Pakistan assisted the U.S. in locating Bin Laden, and who responded to criticism that Pakistan should have been able to locate Bin Laden by noting American law enforcement’s difficulty in capturing wanted criminals inside the U.S. He made specific reference to the notorious Boston gangland figure James J. “Whitey” Bulger: “If Whitey Bulger can live undetected by American police for so long, why can’t Osama Bin Laden live undetected by Pakistani authorities?”
