Osama's Final Facebook Entry

(Click for clearer picture)

Yes, the common girl got to marry the Crown Prince - and the evil villain was slain!

 Now we just need the video of the allegedly planned Flash Mob at Ground Zero!  ;-)

Here's one that's not quite a Flash Mob, but spontaneous singing the night Osama died...

Oh, and Happy Star Wars Day!   May the 4th be with you!

How Long Must We Wait?

OK, on President Obama's order we finally got Bin Ladin - but considering he received intel on Osama's latest hideout LAST AUGUST - and waited EIGHT MONTHS to do something - it's a wonder Osama was still there!  Now I understand the need to gather important logistics and more intel before "going in" - but with as mobile and ellusive as Osama has been - the longer we waited the more chance we had of losing him again.  Yes, we didn't lose him this time around - at least that's the report - but is anyone else seeing a pattern here?  Why did we take so long to move in Lybia?  When the rebels had Khadafi on the ropes, THEN would have been a good time to step in and support them - rather we WAITED until Khadafi could regroup and put the rebels back on the run again.  BP Oil Spill?  How many WEEKS went by before anything was done?  Why all the red-tape when several other nations were there with equipment to help - and were forbidden from doing so? 

Anyway, kudos for getting the job done this time, Mr. President.
