On Sunday President Obama speaks to Steve Kroft of Sixty Minutes in his first interview since the killing of Osama Bin Laden.
Despite goading from Sarah Palin and others to release the graphic photos of Osama Bin Laden President Obama makes the correct call and decides that it would not be in the interests of the United States to release photos of Osama Bin Laden’s body as such images may inflame the Muslim world.
Documents found at the compound where Bin Laden was discovered reveal that he remained at the center of operations of the Al Quaeda network. His death is bound to be a set back for the Al Quaeda network and it still most be considered that they may seek an opportunity to avenge Bin Laden’s death.
President Obama made the correct call. Osama Bin Laden is dead and photos and documented DNA evidence regarding his death have been seen by credible witnesses such as Mike Rogers, Chairman of the House Chair Committee. Mike Rogers revealed that he believed that releasing such photos would add to the pressure and strain that serving soldiers are already under.
Sarah Palin’s call to President Obama that he stop “pussy-footing” and release the photos is yet another example of her absolute unpreparedness for high office. Decisions such as the ones that President Obama has to make about complex and delicate situations are not all black and white. Would Palin hesitate for even a moment? Would she even consider the extra pressure and burden that she would place on the military troops serving in dangerous situations? I highly doubt it, especially if she thought that she could use it to boost her popularity.
I have an idea for Palin. She should like it. After all she is such a gung ho kind of person, anxious to get information out there, and we “Trig Truthers” are such an easy target, are we not?
Palin should stop pussy footing around herself and release medical, hospital and insurance records documenting a contemporaneous account of the period leading up to and immediately following Trig Palin’s birth. That is all we are asking for. Surely that is not too much to ask for from the self styled “Annie Oakley” of the far north?
More from us later.
