The killing of Usama Bin Ladan is a joyous event. Justice has been delivered thanks to the efforts of the finest military in the world. How did we finally get to the most wanted man in the world? Torture.
Bin Laden’s compound near Islamabad was found by tracking two specific couriers, Bin Laden’s most trusted people. The names of these couriers were obtained thanks to putting Khalid Sheik Mohammed and Abu Faraz al-Libby through “enhanced interrogations” at Gitmo. Yes liberals, torture gave our government the names of the men that led to this day. Remember, despite the massive liberal outcry and intense press scrutiny over water boarding, only three detainees were water boarded, one of them was KSM.
Now, when you hear a liberal chirping that “Obama did what Bush couldn’t do, please have these facts handy:
- The nicknames of the couriers were obtained by our troops at Gitmo five years ago, under President Bush.
- “Enhanced interrogation” was used to get some of this information.
- The real names of the couriers were obtained a year later, under President Bush.
- The planning for the surveillance of this compound was performed under President Bush.
It is also being reported that Bin Laden’s compound was 100 yards from the main gate to a Pakistan military base. And lastly, I find it telling that as his final action Bin Laden used a woman as a human shield. Our SEALs didn’t flinch. Here is a taste of the information we will be receiving this week:
At the start of the operation, four U.S.-owned and operated helicopters launched from a base in Afghanistan and dropped about 24 men onto the grounds of the compound. One helicopter suffered a “hard landing” after experiencing a “flight control issue” and had to be destroyed on the site.
At first, bin Laden was asked to surrender. But a military official said he resisted. In the end, he was killed in the ensuing firefight with a bullet to the head.
No Americans were hurt or killed during the raid. Besides bin Laden, three other men were killed, one of whom is believed to be bin Laden’s 24-year-old son. One woman used as a human shield was also killed, and two other women were injured.
Thank you President Bush for your diligence. Thank you to our military for your persistence and skills. And thank you President Obama for not letting political correctness cloud your judgment and authorizing this kill mission. My thoughts are with the relatives of those that died on 9/11, especially the family of the Cantor Fitzgerald employees that were killed, as I was their account manager at the time and will never forget leaving voice messages that could never be returned that morning offering to help. I am also thinking of our troops that have died or been injured since then, and of our troops currently in harms way in the hell hole known as the Middle East.
Now that BIn Laden is dead we need to avoid becoming complacent and watch for increased activity from the scum that are Bin Laden’s supporters. This is a great day, but let’s not let our guard down. God Bless America!
