Somebody was yapping on NPR this morning about the various conspiracy theorii being put forth asserting that bin Laden isn't dead. They raised an excellent point, to wit:

bin Laden has been issuing messages through various media sources pretty much continuously for quite some time. Wouldn't it make sense that if he were still alive, he'd be all over Al Jazeera right now saying "ha ha, you didn't catch me."

Instead, the front-page headline on Al Jazeera's English-language website right now is "Bin Laden was unarmed when shot dead."

That's just it. If he's not captured or dead or under the control of those who are alleged to control the media, then he has a ton of ways to get his middle finger in touch with all of us.

Or he could be hiding and safe for the duration.

Kind of. The theory is that Bin Laden has been dead for years so they have been chasing a target they get to choose when they "catch".

I dont necessarily beleive this, just saying.

That theory would presuppose that Osama has a doppelganger who has been issuing statements in the media nonstop since his death, and who is sufficiently convincing that nobody in all of the Arabic world has noticed.

Seems like some are trying to make sure Soldiers are never treated like those coming back from Vietnam were. Imagine you were drafted, trained, sent to Vietnam, watched your buddies die, got wounded, etc., and then came home to protestors spitting on you.

Hell, I got a line of handshakes for coming back from Kuwait. Wonder what coming back from Afghanistan will be like. Only 6.253 million seconds until I find out.

Only a few are dissatisfied. Most are bored with hearing about it and don't want to be bothered with thinking or hearing about it.

This is actually one of the biggest reasons I resent leftist activists in general, whether they were there and did this or not. The same argument that applied to the run of the mill Muslims versus the terrorists, that not condemning the actions of bad people making a bad name for your group is being tacitly complicit. If leftist activists were spitting on soldiers and their own people weren't calling them out on it, then they are complicit in sanctioning the act.
