Some people…


Brian Golden

It’s so absolutely unbelievable that I would laugh until I cried if I weren’t so angry. Actually, I’m kind of “beyond angry” at this point. Here we are, just hours after finding out that we’ve finally rid the world of Osama bin Laden, and already the bickering, finger-pointing and arguing over who gets all the credit has begun. Some people have no shame.

What’s even more ridiculous is the fact that those Americans who – just a week ago – continued to question our president’s place of birth, are now the same doubting the sincerity of this long-anticipated news. Now that they’ve been proven locally, nationally and globally as ignorant and foolish, they immediately latch-on to another completely unwarranted conspiracy theory – this time concerning the validity of Osama’s death.

As with the “birther” issue, I’m going to nip this one in the bud, go out on a limb and state that, yes, Osama bin Laden finally got what he’s deserved for nearly two decades now. I’m 100 percent positive. And while I remain firm in my opposition to torture and some of the other heinous facets of war, I have no problem with this outcome. In fact, well, let’s just say if it’d been me with the gun that finally got Osama, I wouldn’t lose a nights sleep over it, that’s for damn sure.

Regardless, I’d like to take this moment to thank our men and women in service, both at home and overseas, our country’s intelligence network for getting this one right (unlike the Iraq war) and, most of all, those American Special Forces soldiers who nabbed the biggest terrorist out there.

I’d also like to thank our president, who’s obviously not the Muslim terrorist, anti-American, socialist, weak-willed liberal some of you would like to think. Obama shone today and I for one am glad to have experienced that.

And let’s not forget the approximately 3,000 people who died – thanks to bin Laden – nearly ten years ago on September 11, 2001. This victory is yours…and yours alone.
