As we warned yesterday, early reports about events surrounding the death of Bin Laden will not be completely accurate for a while, if ever. We cited as an example of misinformation early reports that Bin Laden was dead a week earlier than now acknowledged to be the case.
The latest series of revisions are that Bin Laden did not have a “weapon”, the woman killed was not his wife, and the woman was not used as some sort of “shield. The superlatest reports are that Bin Laden was in a room, unarmed, with his small children and at least one wife, no other men in the room, just before he was shot. What these new developments confirm is that our analysis from yesterday is exactly correct: just about everyone involved wanted Bin Laden dead, not captured, and politically correct Barack Obama issued a “kill” order because he did not want to face the prospect of what to do with a live Bin Laden.
As we wrote, Barack Obama did not want to irritate the “Arab street” by holding a high profile Muslim (or is it the non-Muslim buried with Muslim rites?) terrorist (or is he just a wayward criminal to be tried in civilian courts?) and Obama certainly did not want to find housing for Osama at Guantanamo and Barack Obama understood fully how difficult it would be for himself the moment he decided to torture Bin Laden or not torture Bin Laden. So Obama issued a “kill” order instead of capturing Bin Laden and squeezing information and agony out of his miserable existence.
The kill order was carried out by Dick Cheney’s Assassination Ring. What is the Dick Cheney Assassination Ring? Why they are the latest heroes of the Obama Dimocratic Left:
The episode, as usual, belonged to Susan. I'm afraid she's going to be facing a prison term, however. She's cooking for Paul and trying to cheer him up. And that woman who just got out of prison -- Beth's mother -- is injecting anti-freeze in Susan's cooking to poison Paul. It works because at the end of the episode, she asks Paul if the house is hurting him -- he's obviously sick. Does it remind him of Beth? Should he consider moving?
He says she'd have a hard time renting the house to anyone else and he wouldn't do that to her. She reveals she and Mike can now afford to move back in.
He attacks her verbally screaming that she was pretending to care and pretending to be his friend but the whole time just trying to get him out of the house. He kicks her out. After she leaves, he collapses on the floor.
Meanwhile Lynette and Tom are having problems because Lynette treats him like a baby. Not interested in that storyline. Every time I think I can enjoy Lynette, she does something like that. Renee had no storyline except to do the job Tom hired her and Lynette to do (decorate his office as he wanted).
Gabby moved back home -- at Bree's urging -- with Carlos which means they can't talk anymore. Bree's got a police detective who is interested in her. What happened to Brian Austin Greene? I liked him a lot. I thought he and Bree had good chemistry.
I was asked about Bob Somerby's who's become the cranky internet old guy always screaming at you to chop down your tree because two leaves blew into his yard last week.
He hasn't had a thing to say about bin Laden, two e-mails noted. And he won't. Not anything that matters.
If he does, it'll be years from now. He doesn't stick his neck out. He's so fake.
I really am not in the mood for him and, no, I don't buy the "Jury duty" that takes place just at this moment. And that he hadn't mentioned before. No, there is not a one-day jury summons. You get that thing weeks in advance.
