With the anniversary of the assassination of one of this countries biggest headaches it seems as though our beloved President is determined to use it to his betterment. Regardless of who you are there is certain to be differences of opinion concerning the way Bin Laden met his demise, in fact some might actually consider the subject as extremely controversial and to be avoided. While there may have been one celebration after another when the news was made public that the President had in fact authorized a “HIT” on the mastermind of September 11th, anybody could have predicted the future from that point on. Washington DC was buzzing with all sorts of responses and Monday morning quarter backing and the appearance of any public official who was brave enough to think about referencing the event would have meant heightened security.
One year later the situation has not changed, the only difference is that the President is using his accomplishment for killing the 9/11 mastermind as a stepping off point for his “take two” run for the White House. Any politician who would question or condemn the use of this operation as a positive event on the President’s Resume has obviously not realized that they live in a glass house. There are mixed feelings and emotions about how this whole thing played out and although we could say that the firefighters who lost their lives in the line of duty have been avenged, the willingness to assassinate another human being (in another country at that) is nothing short of disappointing. For the record, whether political or otherwise, nobody should be thumping their chest because they ended someone else’s life.
