My thoughts are complicated and many.
The night I heard about it a load was lifted
and I went to my friends house and said
"Let's drink beer. Osama is dead."
Then I watched ATS descend into a rash of OBL threads
like some kind of yeast infection.
This headline reads to me like it's saying
"We don't believe our own president until the enemy confirms his statements."
But that doesn't bother me.
Not at all.
I think it's good medicine for our Government to find itself not getting a free pass on anything they say.
And even better I really dig what it's doing to the rest of the world.
From what I understand many people of the middle east are pointing to conspiracy web sites in America and saying, "see, the US did 9/11, it's all a
conspiracy." This makes me lol. So which is it. Is suicide bombing a brilliant difficult to fight technique developed by eastern terrorists, or is
it all an American plot. I can see the recruitment posters now. "Join the Mujahadeen, and die for America's political advantage."
It warms me to think that our open society,
with it's volitile free opinions,
are inducing schizophrenia in the closed repressive cultures of the world.
