Osama kill aftermath: Hypocrisy of the left

The Osama bin Laden kill is a victory for America and I couldn't be happier for our country. Now that that is out of the way, I'd like to touch base on a few issues that surround the kill; disgusting, repulsive political issues that shouldn't exist, yet do. I did not want to write this but yet again, the left forces me to.

According to every news source covering this, 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad was the key to finding the bin Laden compound in Pakistan by giving up information on Osama bin Laden's personal courier. How did we obtain this information? Bush era "enhanced interrogation techniques" as the media likes to call it. You and I know it as waterboarding. According to Wikipedia, Khalid Sheikh Mohammad was waterboarded 183 times by the CIA until President Obama discontinued the practice in 2009. Until then, the mastermind of 9/11 had confessed to involvement in at least 31 terror plots and other bits of intelligence, including vital clues about Osama bin Laden's personal courier. Every person in this country with common sense knows the intelligence we obtained over the years to find and kill Osama bin Laden was the result of hard nosed interrogation tactics, including waterboarding. The only people who continue to deny this are those on the left who so adamantly opposed the practice, and likely still do despite the benefits to our country. I suppose Khalid Sheikh Mohammad and others just voluntarily gave up clues to the whereabouts of their most revered leader when we asked them! After hearing incessant whining from liberals during the tumultuous Bush years about how awful it is to "torture" those who would do harm to our country, we now hear nothing but denial from them about its role in capturing and killing Osama bin Laden. Our very own Nobel Peace Prize winning President Barack Obama, the man standing high and mighty with his hands on his hips and flash of the camera in his face can take all the credit he wants. But the facts state otherwise. Not one day into his presidency, and he ordered the shut down of the very prisons where this intelligence was gathered, and the very tactics by which it was gathered. An irony for the ages if you ask this American.

Now, if that isn't enough, we have to listen to this continuous stream of politically correct garbage coming from the left about "Islamic sensitivities". "We don't want to spike the football" says Mr. President. I say, spike the football and boot it into the stands! I say release the photos of bin Laden's carcass for all the world to see! Douse the body in pig blood, and shove a big, fat pork chop in his mouth for all of the Muslim world to see. The American people want to see the evidence. We aren't satisfied with hearing about Osama bin Laden's body being dumped into the sea after being given "a proper Islamic burial". We were able to flip on our TV's on September 11th and watch burning New Yorkers jumping to their deaths from the billowing smoke of the towers but we can't see photos of bin Laden dead? Like the issue of Guantanimo and torture, again Obama is on the wrong side on this as well. Let us drift back to 2009 yet again, when a then newly elected President Obama decided it would be ok to release 2000 photos of prisoner abuse in Iraq and Afghanistan to the public. That is ok, but this isn't?

While the left goes gaga over Obama's achievement they dismiss all the facts as usual. We need a savage in the White House. We need a President who is afraid of no one. I want someone in the white house who will get behind that microphone and metaphorically hold up bin Ladens severed head! Instead we have someone who flinches at the sight of a drop of blood, and a press who encourages it.
