I'm thinking, how do we really know? Where's the proof? Obama says so, big deal. Did they capture him and have him squirreled away somewhere? Where is the pic of his dead body? We saw a pic of Saddam, we saw Bonnie and Clyde, and John Kennedy, and Dillinger, and MLK, and Al Capone, even the Old West bad guys. Dozens of pics of dead gangsters have been on the front pages of our newspapers for decades. We have pics of Lincoln. But we can't see Bin Laden? HUH??? Something fishy is going on.

Al Qaeda acknowledged they got him.

All they know is what we told the world. The way info is trickling out is consistent with a capture. If they're really sifting through 100 flash drives then the info is coming out much too fast. You just never know.

Even thats fishy. How is it to their benefit to announce he's dead? They would get far more mileage out of a statement that says he's still alive.

You can fake a photo. If you are going to doubt something you question any so called "proof".

Saddam was a secular leader and he doesn't have the near religious worldwide following of Bin Laden. I support the president's decision on this one.

The problem is that it is simply yet another accomidation to jihadist muslims. We didn't worry about "offending" Germans by showing the concentration camps. If they want to riot over it, let them.

I'm okay if our troops are okay with it. There the ones that have to deal with it, not me, you, or the President. General Petraus wasn't on board with burning the Quarans. I assume it's not because he's really sympathetic to Islam.

Maybe he's wrong -- but still the people in favor of offending them should be on the front lines then.
