    I was watching 'Morning Joe' on MSNBC this am and there they were sitting up there downplaying, questioningthe steps and actions taken in the operation which led to the death of Osama Bin Laden, with more inuendos, lies and conspiracies. They questioned the time it took, why were unarmed people shot, etc., trying to covertly accuse Pres Obama of lying about the event, casting a shadow of doubt as to why didn't the Pentagon and the administration come forth with the full and same story?!? Huh? DIVISIONISTS!

    These media propagandists are working so hard to demean the success of this wonderfully strategized operation staged by the OBAMA administration, until they have gone from BUSH gets the credit to now, all of a sudden, there were things that occurred during the operation that may be questionable! The divisive newsmedia tries to cover their evil construed, conspired attempts against the operation by having the gall to say the 'shooters on the ground wanted the story told straight'. That is a LIE! COVERT OPS?!

    Anybody who's had any military experience or even been close to a military person, friend, family member, etc., knows full well that the publicly telling any of the story, of a special ops operation done by US NAVY SEALS, DELTA FORCE on any mission is restricted! MilitariIy, it is CLASSIED information between the government officials and the team! You people are the ones who're pushing this divise, non-polical rhetoric to the people to keep igniting firestorms of hate and more intolerance! You are devils!

    Now, here we go on the 'roller coaster' of hate, jealousy, and disdain for the PRESIDENT of THE UNITED STATES, the one who actually took Bin Laden down, decision to go to NEW YORK, to GROUND ZERO! My GOD! Clearly, I would think any other 'sitting president' who may have completed that mission, would have done the same thing! VICTORY LAP?!? This is none other than a jesture of respect, honor and some sense of closure to the families, the firemen, police, and all responders to that scene, that sad, sad day!

    Hopefully, we will all be alive and well, in 30 years or so, to read about it all in declassified documents at the Obama Presidential Library. Until then, unless we hear it from direct official sources, it's all speculation.

    The executive branch should be informing the public about gaseous smallpox. Also, it is a known matter that there are no executive orders in the US government. They were abolished, and cannot be reinstated. 2-3-2012.
