After the deadliest terrorist assault in American history, Bush-era officials chose to go after the bad guys and, if possible, kill them. The mainstream media is now declaring that this was a bad thing, a terrible thing, a criminal thing because... because... it was secret! (Gasp!)
So Obama's team has pulled the plug on the plan. The CIA will not be going after Al Qaeda's top leaders, killing them, or even putting them in a carnival dunking booth. And the mainstream media is cheering this as good news because... because... well, because the mainstream media are increasingly anti-American assholes. Oops - sorry, news guys! Was that also supposed to be kept secret?
In today's busy world, people probably don't stop very often to wonder "what ever happened to Osama bin Laden?" Which is why Hope n' Change wants to remind you that nothing has happened since this cartoon was posted 2 years ago...and nothing probably will.
Few people probably remember the story above, describing Barack Obama's cancellation of the plan to whack Osama and his top co-conspirators. And what did the alleged president institute instead? A two-year delay of prosecutions for terrorists we'd already caught, an attempt to stage "show trials" in New York during which sensititive intelligence information secrets would be made public, and a hunt for Osama bin Laden which is considerably less convincing than OJ Simpson's hunt for the "real killer" of his wife.
And if, by some miracle, Osama bin Laden IS caught and killed...you can bet his body will secretly end up in the back of the Whitehouse freezer, packed in with the yams nobody wants to eat, until the most politically advantageous time for Obama to thaw him out and show him off.
