    Do you think the death of Osama is nothing but a distraction?

    I believe he was caught and killed years ago. That's why they have no pictures. I also believe they are using this to distract us from Obama's birth certificate. It's fake. This is no conspiracy theory, its what I find to be the truth. So do you think it's a big old distraction?

    Obama has been saying Osama was in Pakistan since at least 2007 when he was a Senator. So,no.

    Unless I see him dead I won't even believe he is. Do we ever get the truth? Why does our president think he deserves the right type funeral, are we paying for it, is Obama truly Muslim; I have seen videos him saying he is, I believe nothing anymore. He probably is not dead is my feeling.

    We saw photos of Iraq’s “WMD’s” that led to the US invasion of a sovereign Arab country, but we weren’t concerned that it would “inflame” the Muslim world against the USA. We saw photos of the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison, but weren’t concerned that they would inflame the Muslim world against the US (even more). But one picture of the “world’s most wanted man” cannot be shown to the American people who have suffered so much in his name because it might (MIGHT!) result in retaliation. And we’re told by our “elected” officials, “just trust us, he’s dead now.”

    If your local TV station does any kind of “sound off” for local viewers, call/write in asking why we’re supposed to trust this government that the “most wanted man” is dead without any shred of proof for the American people.

    I totally agree that this is mere distraction and nothing else.

    I think it is. Sometiems I think they were sick of the whole affair and are just saying he's dead to make people happy, it's been almost 10 years now.
    I'm just waiting to see if he actually comes back yikes

    It is not a distraction to me.  Our troops needed a victory and they produced it.  If you choose not to believe the men and women of our armed forces than I have a bridge to sell you.

    I believe Osama is dead if for no other reason than our own troops said so.  Even his own people say he is dead!  Why would anyone question this now?  The sad thing is as soon as he was killed another was brought in to fill his shoes, so the war on terror is far from over.

    This is a nice victory for our troops at least.  They've been after him for a long time and I'm glad they finally took him down.  it's important that people realize that the Military was responsible for this action and the only input Obama had in it was to say, "Do your job."  He didn't find him, plan the attack, or take part in any other way.  He just happened to be the one in office at the time.

    Give credit where credit is do, to our soldiers on the "Front lines!"  They're the ones who deserve the well done!

    Bush didn't kill Bin Laden, so the GOP bloggers are spreading the rumor that it was actually Bush who killed Bin Laden years ago; not Obama's team. It reminds me of Animal Farm. "No, no, no; Snowball didn't lead the heroic charge; it was Napoleon". Before I attack the GOP here, let me first raise my flag by saying that I am a conservative (libertarian; not religious, authoritarian, or militaristic). It's been a tactic of the GOP for some time to get ahead of the story by taking their own weaknesses and applying them to the opposing party. 2004 example: During Vietnam Lieutenent J Kerry was a war hero and Lieutenant G Bush was a deserter. The GOP simply turned the tables on the public and slanderously attacked Kerry as a cowardly fraud. The Bush family has business dealings with the House of Bin Laden, but the GOP invents a story that a south Chicago lawyer has more connections with aristocratic families in the Middle East than they could. Nothing against George W. He's not really a bad person and he's shown remorse--attacked by his party for it too, I might add. And as long as unfounded theories are being tossed about, here's one: I wouldn't be surprised if the government knew where Osama was all along. The time just came to collect the bill for the sake of electoral politics..

    Apparently the death of Osama Bin Ladin is a distraction from the real issue; President Obama's birth certificate.

    That's what some in the 'birther movement' are saying.

    Yes, absolutely, without a doubt. According the corporate media, they searched  for this man nine years. Now, they are showing pictures that indicate he was never hiding. If I were an elite team I would be embarrassed. Have you noticed not a word concerning the inflated price of petroleum. The price of petroleum causes other commodities to escalate at an inflationary rate. This cause problem for the jobless, and working poor.

    Do,you think it 's just a natural coincidence that Osama Ben Laden Official death anouncement happened within a few days or weeks of the day Obama's planned visit to ground zero.
    Seems like a political move if ever I saw one.Public percerption of the presidents ability as head of the military forces at least figuratively..

    No, I do think differently than you do, on this issue.

    This is not to imply, that I have no questions of my own..............

    Surely, the web can't be as tangled as you suggest.  FAR too many players involved.  There  would have to be a "squealer" in the midst, wanting to pen a book or make a movie. 

    It is not that I 'trust' the government, but they just simply can't get along well enough to pull off a charade of this magnitude.

    Then, we have the honorable soldiers, with their own stories to tell................the farce would be too big to contain.

    One - You are making a claim with absolutely no evidence at all, but I do think it is an unintentional distraction from the hundreds of people who were killed in the South (tornados,etc) As for his birth cirtificate, I have no idea. It is a little odd that he would reveal it at the time he did, because he knew that the Navy Seals were being sent to go kill Osama Bin Laden...
