Okay, I'm back. All of you, thanks for being thoughtful about this topic - and thanks to whomever for bringing the thread back to life.
As I read through the various PsOV, several thoughts occurred to me.
1) Why is it Obama's prerogative ONLY to decide? Don't we have checks and balances in place? Perhaps the Supreme Court or the US Attorney General
should decide on the "burden of proof" issue.
2) Why was his family not allowed to handle the hypothetical remains in their own fashion? I'm not sure I agree with the idea of a "shrine" for the
world to go gawk at - that would be quite disrespectful even if it were called for -- but a quick and dirty burial at sea?? Whose idea was that? Yes,
I know they said "no country would want him" - but they had to transport him overland to get him to the sea -
.....how much money was spent on flying his remains on a govt airship/helo whatever to a govt watership and then dumping him? OR, did they just dump
him out of the airship?
3) The timing of all this really bothers me. There are so many things going on - a third levee breach to allow the floodwaters back IN to the
Mississippi after ruining hundreds of acres of crops -
Now, having said all of that - it is obvious that there IS no PROOF to be had. I think it's a shame that photos and/or video have been reduced to
"whatever" as visual evidence - no more convincing in these times than someone's Say-So.
And finally (for purposes of this thread) --
Yes, his maniac followers do want all USA citizens dead.
Yes, those followers will no doubt look at this as a fatwa and a provocation that was started by the USA
But, keep in mind, everyone, that "cells" of would-be killers are everywhere,
already on our soil, in our neighborhoods and universities -
mingling with regular folks and busy concocting their schemes - they're not just standing there scratching their heads outside that compound and
going "huh. now what do we do?"
Does anyone else think that maybe - just maybe - the doors of the Military Industrial complex have just been thrown open to stimulate the GLOBAL
ECONOMY - so that the NWO next-step can be taken?
IMO, Obama is not a hero. He wasn't there. Even HE can't be sure he is being told the truth. The Pakis did not tell the truth, reportedly, and we
know we-the-people don't know the truth.
I think it's all pretty overblown, actually, and a decoy - a diversion - it's what happens now that we need to be wary of. Bin Laden was already a
crippled old madman. What the reported team did was akin to when...
the executioners entered the room, led by Yurovsky. Yurovsky quickly informed
the Tsar and his family that they were to be executed. The Tsar had time to say only "What?" and turn to his family before he was killed by several
bullets to the chest (not, as is commonly stated, to the head; his skull, recovered in 1991, bears no bullet wounds). The Tsar, the empress and two
menservants were killed in the first episode of gunfire; Marie, Dr Botkin and the empress' maid Demidova were wounded. Thick smoke had filled the
The Bolsheviks had wanted to bring the tsar for a trial, but circumstances led to a quick decision to kill the whole family
People still think Anastasia might be alive somewhere. Almost all of the Tsar's family's remains showed that the claims of them receiving shots to
the head were untrue.
And Zawahiri is still out there somewhere - an articulate physician who means business...
