Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on OBL joining the ranks of the damned in Hell:
“I know that nothing can make up for the loss of the victims or fill the voids they left, but I hope their families can now find some comfort in the fact that justice has been served.”
Last night, Obama and our courageous Navy SEALs delivered justice not only for the thousands of grieving but also for the man who was our leader at the time of the attacks. If I allow my mind to go bipartisan for a moment, I can picture Barack’s phone conversation with Bush last night going something like this:
George, this is Barack. Osama bin Laden is dead. You can rest easy now. Your work is done and your goal was accomplished.
-Rutherford Lawson, Justice For Thousands of American Families
So now that two of the American Left’s shining lights agree that hunting in stealth and dispatching with extreme prejudice was the administration of “justice”, does that mean we can expect Eric Holder’s resignation before sundown, for even entertaining, even for a moment, that these murderers deserve anything approaching a trial, bought and paid for by the same people who they would like nothing better than to kill?
Don’t get me wrong. I like the deterrent effect of warnings. I like letting those who declare themselves your enemies know the cost of such a decision. In that vein, I would have been much happier to have them tape proof that it was him, and then running him through a wood chipper with a pig or three, collecting the remains in a bulletproof glass vat, and then toss in a Koran or two, just to make sure that the Assholes for Allah got the message. Not because I’m a bloodthirsty SOB, but because I want them to fear what might happen if they kill our people in the name of their rock-worshipping religion.
I realize that may sound odd. And I’m about to add to it.
When I saw this on FOX last night, I wasn’t happy. As I said, I’m as thrilled as anyone that OBL has taken up an eternity of torment in Hell, but this was wrong.
If it was NYC, I’d understand. But at the White House? And these people were all too young to really understand what this means, and what OBL and his buddies took away from us forever.
OBL’s post-9/11 life was not about a man. It was about an idea. And while we may have killed him, that idea remains…we did nothing to stop it, as I’m sure we will be reminded soon enough.
