Latest Version: One Person Fired At SEALs

From an increasingly skeptical Reuters:

No resistance in "cold-blooded" U.S. raid: Pakistan officials

By Kamran Haider And Augustine Anthony
May 5, 2011

ABBOTTABAD, Pakistan (Reuters) – Osama bin Laden and his comrades offered no resistance when killed by U.S. special forces in a Pakistani town, Pakistani security officials said on Thursday.

U.S. accounts of what happened have changed throughout the week, and initial characterizations of a 40-minute gun battle have given way to officials being quoted as saying only one of the five people who were killed had been armed.

The White House has cited the "fog of war" as a reason for initial misinformation on whether bin Laden — who was shot in the head — was armed when U.S. Navy SEALs raided his compound in the Pakistani town of Abbottabad early on Monday.

In other words, they are blaming the SEALs. What a surprise, huh?

Two senior Pakistani security officials, citing their investigation, said there was no firefight because the inhabitants never fired back. "The people inside the house were unarmed. There was no resistance," one of the officials said.

"It was cold-blooded," said the second official when asked if there was any exchange of fire during the operation which, U.S. officials said lasted nearly 40 minutes.

The officials declined to say how they got their information, but officials had earlier said wounded had been detained.

Photographs acquired by Reuters and taken about an hour after the assault show three dead men — not including bin Laden — lying in pools of blood. No weapons could be seen in the closely cropped images.

The photos, taken by a Pakistani security official who was in the compound after the raid, show two men dressed in traditional Pakistani garb and one in a T-shirt, blood streaming from their ears, noses and mouths.

($1 = 84.750 Pakistani Rupees)

That’s good to know. Thanks Reuters. (Apparently, this article left out the price that Reuters paid for the photographs.)

For the record, even the administration’s flagship, the New York Times is starting to express skepticism:

Account Tells of One-Sided Battle in Bin Laden Raid

May 4, 2011

WASHINGTON — President Obama decided Wednesday not to release graphic photographs of Osama bin Laden’s corpse, as new details emerged about the raid on Bin Laden’s fortified compound that differed from the administration’s initial account of the nearly 40-minute operation…

The new details suggested that the raid, though chaotic and bloody, was extremely one-sided, with a force of more than 20 Navy Seal members quickly dispatching the handful of men protecting Bin Laden.

And by "handful" they mean five. Only one of whom seems to have tried to protect Bin Laden.

Administration officials said that the only shots fired by those in the compound came at the beginning of the operation, when Bin Laden’s trusted courier, Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti, opened fire from behind the door of the guesthouse adjacent to the house where Bin Laden was hiding.

After the Seal members shot and killed Mr. Kuwaiti and a woman in the guesthouse, the Americans were never fired upon again.

This account differs from an official version of events issued by the Pentagon on Tuesday, and read by the White House spokesman, Jay Carney, which said the Seal members “were engaged in a firefight throughout the operation.”


In a television interview on PBS on Tuesday, Leon E. Panetta, the director of the C.I.A., said, “There were some firefights that were going on as these guys were making their way up the staircase of that compound.”

You can’t expect Mr. Panetta to keep such minor details straight.

Administration officials said the official account of events has changed over the course of the week because it has taken time to get thorough after-action reports from the Seal team.

Again, they are blaming the SEAL team.

And, they added, because the Special Operations troops had been fired upon as soon as they touched down in the compound, they were under the assumption that everyone inside was armed. “They were in a threatening and hostile environment the entire time,” one American official said…

Granted. But you would think they would have noticed that the firing had stopped. They were there for forty minutes.

When the commandos moved into the main house, they saw the courier’s brother, who they believed was preparing to fire a weapon. They shot and killed him. Then, as they made their way up the stairs of the house, officials said they killed Bin Laden’s son Khalid as he lunged toward the Seal team.

In other reports, Bin Laden is said to have "lunged."

When the commandos reached the top floor, they entered a room and saw Osama bin Laden with an AK-47 and a Makarov pistol in arm’s reach. They shot and killed him, as well as wounding a woman with him

This is new information. And something that might have been shown in any photos of Bin Laden’s body.

For the record, the footage we have seen of the room show no weapons. And the Pakistan authorities claim they have found none in the entire compound. We have not been told of the SEALs took any weapons from the compound.

The White House declined to release any additional details about the operation, saying that further information would jeopardize the military’s ability to conduct clandestine operations in the future

Talk about closing the barn door after the horse has been published. But how convenient.

The administration’s reticence came after it was forced on Tuesday to correct parts of its initial account of the raid, including assertions that Bin Laden had used his wife as a “human shield.”

“We’ve revealed a lot of information; we’ve been as forthcoming with facts as we can be,” Mr. Carney said

It really is to laugh.

    Osama bin Laden’s AK, there could be no better trophy of war. Maybe Hilter’s p38, which I believe still has blood stains on it.

  2. proreason says:

    Someone should plot the pace of the story revisions on a graph. Maybe then we could predict how long it will be before they stop coming up with new lies.

    The problem, I think, is that they left all those live people behind. As their stories begin to be revealed, adjustments have to be made to the original story line, which might very well have been written by Bill Ayers.

    So we have gone from hails of bullets for 40 minutes to one guy with a weapon being shot with one bullet.

    The final story may be that the residents of that house defended themselves by throwing stale pizza crusts at the Seals, and OBL held a teddy bear up to protect himself.

    But I don’t blame the Seals for a second. They had every reason to shoot anything that twitched. I blame the moronistration for lying. They are incapable of NOT lying. It’s in their dna.

    • proreason says:

      asked and answered:

      “1) There was a firefight.
      2) There was no firefight.
      3) Bin Laden was “resisting.”
      4) Bin Laden wasn’t armed. (Makes the concept of “resisting” interesting.)
      [4.a) And the newest one: the SEALS thought bin Laden was reaching for a weapon.]
      5) He used his wife as a shield.
      6) His wife was killed too.
      7) He didn’t use his wife as a shield. She ran at a SEAL who shot her in the leg, but she’s fine.
      8 ) Some other woman — the maid? — was used as a shield. By somebody. Downstairs.
      9) That other woman — downstairs — was killed.
      10) Maybe not. She was killed unless she wasn’t — and who was she, anyway?
      11) Bin Laden’s son was killed.
      12) Unless it was some other guy.
      13) Bin Laden’s daughter saw him get killed. She’s undoubtedly traumatized, poor dear.
      14) They were going to capture Bin Laden until the problem with the helicopter, which was:

      A) It had mechanical trouble
      B) It did a hard landing
      C) It crashed
      D) It clipped a wall with a tail rotor, effectively a crash

      15.) They were never going to try to capture him; it was always a kill mission.
      16.) No, it wasn’t.
      17) The chopper blew up.
      18) The SEALs blew it up.
      19.) Panetta said yesterday the world needed proof and the photo would be released.
      20.) Obama said today in an interview he taped with Steve Kroft for “60 Minutes” to be broadcast Sunday that it won’t be released. It’s too gruesome, would offend Muslim sensibilities (something he worries about a lot — I personally do not give a warm fart on a wet Wednesday about Muslim sensibilities), and how would Americans feel if Muslims released pictures of dead Americans?
      21.) Kroft — who’s not a total idiot — pointed out that ever since “Black Hawk Down” days, Muslims have been doing precisely that, filming American bodies being dragged through the streets, filming Daniel Pearl’s head being cut off, filming any and everything.
      22) Obama gets pissed at CBS, the tape gets cleaned up, that question disappears. (Inside info.)
      23.) We got a “treasure trove” of stuff from hard drives, etc.
      24.) There were no phone lines, and no internet access at the “mansion,” they didn’t even have TV — what “treasure trove?”
      25.) There is obviously in the pictures of the place a large satellite dish. I guess they used it for making salads.
      26.) And now, just today: apparently the idea was to capture him, but only if he was naked.

      Pro, you had me in stitches with this. I fell out. Will be laughing about it for some time to come. It’s perfect.

      26.) And now, just today: apparently the idea was to capture him, but only if he was naked. There was a suspicion he might be wearing a suicide bomber type explosive vest, or belt. So if he’s not naked and you can’t see if he has a vest on or not – shoot him.
      27) The administration watched a live video feed of the operation.
      28) There was no live video feed of the operation.
      29) Osama is in no way a Muslim nor a leader.
      30) We must show Osama the respect we’d show any Muslim leader.

  3. GypsyRN says:

    I am waiting for the DOJ to start an investigation centering on the Seal Team Six. It would not surprise me to find the Administration is readying itself to set the responsibility for shooting unarmed people directly on the shoulders of Seal Team Six! This story as it unwinds is looking more surreal then ever. From a fire fight to unarmed people being taken out. The time line is really loose and untidy. I would not be surprised to see Seal Team Six hung out to dry. I think the administration has a card to be played it is going to be sacrifice the Seals! ……You Seals are the best of the best! I hate to see it come out that you get the brunt of the blame. I can see Eric Holder getting a “hard on” at that thought of going after Navy Seals!!

    • proreason says:

      They can’t do that. There would be a national uprising like none that has ever been seen.

      The Seals knew it and that’s why, I think, they essentially executed OBL. The orders had to be to take him back alive, and it looks more and more like they could easily have done so. At the moment, it appears there was only one armed man in the house and he was shot in the first minutes.

      If OBL was shot at a distance of several feet, they might have thought he had access to a bomb and shot him in self-defense. But if OBL was shot at point-blank range, then it would indicate that they approached him and could have determined (probably) that he was unarmed and didn’t have a bomb. It’s still possible that he might have made a threatening move at close range, but it is less likely. If they were worried about his movements, why wouldn’t they have shot him from afar rather than approaching closely? That’s why I think they aren’t releasing the pictures. I think experts could tell us whether the double tap was at point-blank range. The closer the range, the more likely it was an assassination, and the worse it would reflect on the most courageous man who has ever lived, your god-like president.

      The god-king is in a box on this. If it becomes clear that it is an assassination (even if the Seals did it against orders), then the only party Obamy could blame would be the Seals, and they are protected by public sentiment. If he prosecutes them, he loses in 2012, hands down.

    • jobeth says:

      I’m of the mind that Obalmy is as we speak trying to position himself for both events. “It was ME and MY Brilliant orders” if it is to his advantage and “It was the SEALS who did it” if its not to his advantage in this after assault choas.

      Everything he does or doesn’t do is always couched in those brackets.

      If the SEALS acted on their own or against asinine orders, it just heightens their stature in my eyes. I understand how important it is to follow CoC orders…but if you are following a nutty wimpy weasel pretend king, at some point you have to do what you have to do.

      Besides I don’t believe he had anything at all to do with this whole thing until it was in the works. One look at that photo with him nearly turning white, huddled in the corner tells us all we need to know about his “gutsiness”. As always, he jumped on board the glory wagon when he thought it could be directed at him.

      We’re seeing a fiasco beginning to form for the after assault actions. Watch him throw the SEALS under the bus. It appears like its beginning to take place already with the ” unarmed hit” questions.

      Somehow I sleep so much better knowing the Seals are there to protect me and mine. Not so much with the pretend king. Lord, please protect our service personel

  4. TerryAnne says:

    Still think this whole operation ended up being crap. They found one of the sons, killed him and are trying to pawn it off on the world that it was OBL.

  5. GypsyRN says:

    You are right on that pro….it would not stop them from trying! I would like to see a national uprising against him!!I Find it odd that they wanted to give him a respectful burial at sea, according to Islamic law, they said they did that because that is the way we are!…but the send a hit team in to take him out….does that sound a contradictory? …it is okay to kill him but we did give him an islamic service so the Muslims should not be too mad! what the heck is that all about???? plain and simple it was a hit job! This political correctness run into the ground!

  6. Chase says:

    Alan Dershowitz has a good column in the WSJ –


    He points out that Jews and Christians’ burial wishes never trump the law in finding out what happened to them.

    Of course, the Obama mononistration (I like that) sees accomodation of Muslim sensibilities as the highest priority, from his first post-inaugural interview, trip to Egypt and all the rest, seemingly too including newspaper editors around the country not accepting “illegal immigrants” or “Islamofascist” in posts, calling them racial slurs, etc..,

    Dershowitz closes, “The great Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis taught us nearly a century ago that “sunlight is the best disinfectant.” Heh, the trespassers in the West Wing are all like vampires….sunlight would bring an end to their crooked ideology and lawless scheming to power.

  7. tranquil.night says:

    How do you screw up telling the world that you successfully killed the most wanted terrorist? We’ve come to learn that if there’s anyone up to the task, it’s the Moron regime.

    I wonder what the odds are that he could’ve avoided this whole chain of inquiry would he have just set aside his ego for 10 minutes to show even the mildest sense of humility for the time. TOTUS is probably going to try and spin some magic for him at his first GZ visit, but the moment has likely given way by now.

    Plus, now that we’ve learned how important Bush’s policies were to the timeline of capture, I bet a lot of people are juxtaposing his quiet dignity with that of the whiny brat in the White House who says he doesn’t like the idea of ‘war’ and ‘victory’ until he has his trophy handed to him, then he can’t wait to be a winner.

    • Right of the People says:

      The O’ster and his handlers were so anxious to get the story out and bask in the glory of it they didn’t stop to get their stories straight.

      Plus they forgot that there were survivors who are going to talk to the international media who are not as taken with our boy king as our own Lame Stream Media and not dedicated to shill for him that the truth, something the boy king knows nothing about, might come out. The spin doctors started going to work not long after Barry the Lame made his stunning announcement and have been working overtime ever since trying to put the a-hole in the Oval Office in the best light.

    • tranquil.night says:

      The Pakistanis are lying. The concubines are lying. The MBM concubines are too. It’s all bullshit. The only certainties are that there was definitely a raid and OBL was definitely killed and buried immediately in accordance with Islamic tradition – all (except the burial) wonderful – but they’ve done their damndest to even put if it was him into doubt too by not releasing photos.

      I’d believe the SEALs if I felt like we were ever going to get their actual story.

  8. sheehanjihad says:

    As though somehow the muslim extremists word is golden over that of a SEAL? I don’t effin think so. I wouldn’t care if bin laden was throwing his Barbies at the Team….or his wife was calling Oprah to complain about his treatment…..they figured they were safe, they got more and more lax with security, and regardless if Osama was armed to the teeth, or sitting there trying to figure out the complexities of wrapping his own turban without help….HE GOT SHOT AND KILLED!!!

    Bottom line? Bin Laden is dead. Everything else is hype, bullshit, and campaign rhetoric. The political jerk offs and blog pundits can postulate any and every scenario they wish. They weren’t there, they couldn’t dream of doing anything remotely as courageous as the SEALS….and they get to spew their total crappola without worry of being hunted down and killed for who they are.

    BIN LADEN IS DEAD!! see? let it roll off your tongue…savor the thought. That’s what counts.

    Personally, I don’t care if they tippy-toed up to him and killed him in his sleep.

    • proreason says:

      No weapons is more believable than a story that changes every few hours.

      btw, S&L’ers are probably unanimous that we don’t care if he was popped point-blank. Personally, I would have preferred that a Seal was singing God Bless America when he stuck a weapon covered with pork fat in the creep’s mouth.

      The discussion is all about little lenin, his lies and his attempt to claim full credit when he deserves none. There isn’t a president in US history who wouldn’t have given the go-ahead in 16 seconds, no matter 16 hours, and they wouldn’t have been playing golf when it all went down either.

      And now some pundits in the conservative press are beginning to wonder if the wh criminals aren’t trying to setup the Seals to take a fall, so little lenin can get another Peace Prize for his humanitarianism.

    Of course the whole point of a SEAL incursion is to hopefully make the battle one-sided, but let’s not expect the liberal propaganda machine to recognize this.

    Counting down to the SEALs involved being court-marshalled in 5, 4, 3…

    • jobeth says:

      If the SEALs had rung the door bell and said “Avon Calling…” the liberal propaganda machine would have found fault in that they didn’t announce who they really were.

      I totally agree with your last sentence. I’m certain he’s already working on how to make it happen. All the while trying to appear like the “gutsy” Prez who’s military didn’t honor his orders to kiss their arses as they begged him to step aboard the copter. I mean after all they are muslim and we must honor their ‘customs” (of mass murder of innocents).

    This one is interesting because Alan Dershowitz, and (with the cover of a famous person) noted rino blogger squish allahpundit are beginning to ever so circumspectly wonder about whether the Arab killer turd was trying to surrender or not. Predictably, allahpundit eventually twists himself into a mental pretzel and finally concludes that everything was on the up and up, even though NOBODY in the world with the exception of a couple of Seals seems to know anything definitely about any detail of the entire operation. But at least allahpundit comes down on the patriotic side of the equation. In other words, he’s for the Seals.

    Kinda makes you wonder why they are finally getting around to asking that stuff after an insignificant commentor twit who doesn’t even have his own blog was the only guy in the world publicly wondering about it for 4 days.

    I wonder if anyone will EVER get around to asking what Panettabama’s orders were? or whether the Seals interpreted their orders with an eye towards justice and /or thwarting the schemes of the most dangerous man on the planet?

    Did anyone catch a day or 2 ago, that the Senate voted 97-0 on a resolution to honor the military for the Osama bin Laden Mission?

    What’s wrong with our Senators that felt this needed a vote. Obama does everything without vote.
    I was so shocked. I can not imagine our Navy Seals who must stay private in order to continue their heroic operations having to wait and see if they’ll be honored. They are humble.

    Well live footage being ran after 1st announced showed little tiny fires and little smoking going on for hours on. Nothing compared to 9/11.

    That’s what Obama deserves after having Hillary’s first statements say Pakistans are our partners.

    I can’t believe the WH and their new arrogant prep boy spokesman even responds to anything Pakistan has to say.

    As far as NYT goes.

    NYT: hey muslims!! allah bakar! we’re still writing in your favor! we love you radicals! don’t attack us, we are on your side and we won’t change, no matter how it makes America, yet alone our New York City that you destroyed to where there will never be closure for the wounded and survivors.
    See muslims!! We aren’t complaining what you did to the twin towers!! We understand why you did it.
    See muslims we called it “A BATTLE”. That’s a term America means for the Battle of Bunker Hill or the Battle of Gettysburg” We luv U. oxoxoxo’s p.s. we are mailing teddy bears for your children. hugs.

    “In other reports, Bin Laden is said to have “lunged.””

    Hell, yes. That’s a dam fact. Osama bin Laden was lunging for every body shield he could grab. Every weapon, grenade taped under tables, sqeezed between and under chair, couch, and bed cushions.
    Hell yes he lunged. Last of all he lunged to get to the bottom escape door they said the compound had.

    Bleep the NTY’s & Obama both. Thank God, there are hundreds of millions of people in this country that have a brain, and know our Finest Navy Seals not only have an enormous job to do, but do it for their stupid leaders and so the bleeping media like NYT have the freedom of the press.

    Cold blooded? Obama endangered The U.S. finest Navy Seals as is allowing the bleeping Pakis to stay this.

    Obama should only respond back “we should have bombed the hell out of the big and little bleeping terrorists endangering their neighbors, yet alone the world. Now we’ll have to worry about “family martyrdom” retaliation, muslim mafia style.

    Today, my son had to dress in Mexico’s flag colors and take food to celebrate Cinco De Mayo day?

    Our bleeping Senate needs a real resolution and name a day
    Navy Seal day. Easter Seals needs a replacement I’m supposing.

  14. dscam says:

    Here’s what I want to hear.

    AP- Washington, DC. “The Obama administration has changed it’s story yet again today. In a prepared statement, the President said that, “The mission was never to capture Osama. I gave very specific orders that under no circumstances was he to be brought back alive. Members of Seal Team 6 discovered Osama in a third-floor bedroom, clad only in urine-soaked tighty whiteys. After verifying that the compound was secure, bin Laden was led to the couryard, where he was made to kneel. A military officer read a prepared list of charges, all of which bin Laden had been tried for and found guilty of in absentia. A native speaker was present to translate the charges. At the conclusion of the reading, an unidentified member of Seal Team 6 placed his sidearm against the back of bin Laden’s head, and fired two shots. Once the twitching stopped, OBL was unceremoniously stuffed into a body bag and shoved aboard the waiting helicopter, which returned to Afghanistan.”

    I don’t really understand why everybody seems to think it’s bad if the Seal Team executed Osama. I’d actually have MORE respect for Obama if he admitted that the mission was wet work from the get-go. But the boy king wouldn’t be able to stand the thought of being judged by the Caliphate, so he’d never admit that, even if it was the case.

    It stays in the news cycle longer if there is conflicting reports. The news media and people pay attention to it longer, while the left hand is doing mischief somewhere else….and ignoring $5 gas, unemployment numbers…

    I can’t help but noticePAKISTAN our “friends” didn’t carefully recover our stealth helicopter to us! They took it, and no doubt will give it to their buddies the Chinese, or Russia, or the highest bidder. –Cut off ALL foreign aid to these people.

    To give Bin Laden a true burial perhaps we should have flung his body from a 110 story window, or allowed it to burn in a plane crash?

    Maybe ya’ll will remember my first post on this event …

    ” From what I understand, he was playing canasta with the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and the Great Pumpkin, when the “CIA” came in and blasted him. So, I guess that means that either the war is over and the troops can all come home… or we can expect a constant barrage of terrorist acts which will take our minds off a dying economy, China unloading three trillion dollars of our paper, the many “hits” we’re putting on other Muslim nation’s leaders, the war on our Southern border, $6.00 a gallon gas, $5 loaves of bread, Obama’s Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) created by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the fact that the country is going down like a two dollar hooker when the fleets is in town. Gee, I wonder which one it will be????”

  17. jobeth says:

    “In other words, they are blaming the SEALs. What a surprise, huh?”

    I SO knew this was coming.

    He takes the kudos for what he didn’t do…And blames someone else for the screw ups he produced.

    Someone on Fox today reminded us that while and before the Seals assault was taking place the mission ran like clock work. But as soon as those ‘copters’ took off, and Obalmy began calling the shots, everything has become a disaster of the Keystone cops variety (paraphrase)

  18. Chase says:

    It seems to me the Senate, if voting on anything, should be voting to award the huge reward $$ to all those who flew into Afghanistan (lots of cans of Alpo for the titanium-toothed canine as well), as well as hitting the NYT with a windfall profits tax, also to be given to the Seals or their favorite charity, for the bounce into the black their sleazy, morally-bankrupt paper probably had this week.

  19. canary says:

    I’ll bet most on the Navy Seals minds was wandering if their muslim luv’n Obama had set them up.

    Thinking to themselves how under a new inexperienced CIA Director who had some 2 dozen seasoned CIA Agents were blown up! Being told to meet with some dude that said he knew were bin laden.
    Now we know someone just had to point in the direction. Say one word. Those bleeping Pakistans danced in the streets after 9/11.

    The Navy Seals may have been a bit worried since Obama was replacing the CIA director and Gates.

    Our Navy Seals performed a far more dangerous operation than anyone realizes.

  20. canary says:

    Mithrandir, my thoughts are following yours now, to pay attention to what’s happening now. I’ve taken notes. It’s history and important because of those will give Obama credit.

    Tonight I was too tired too take notes on FOX’s GOP debate among some of the candidates.
    Ron Paul says Gitmo prisoners weren’t given due process, and yet look at the information we got. And how heroin should be legal, and anyone should be able to marry anyone. Get rid of Homeland Security.

    He did a very good job. He even pointed out how one minute Obama was on Gaddafi’s side, then it was go get him without approval.

    And Pawlenty was attacked with his prior cap and trade and go global green b.s. and says he doesn’t believe it anymore.

    Romney will have to answer for his UN membership to go green too, in his tiny state. Such a welcoming state when Obama’s illegal aunt can hide there, Bin Laden’s sister received medical treatment in Boston.
    Course a lot of beautiful scenery and forests in that tiny state of toursim.

    Time is running out. While Obama is going to celebrity roast club dinner day after bin laden died,
    acted like a rock star in NYC, we’d better get busy.

    This will be intense. And frankly I think Obama has worn this country down.

    It stays in the news cycle longer if there is conflicting reports. The news media and people pay attention to it longer, while the left hand is doing mischief somewhere else.

    I can’t help but noticePAKISTAN our “friends” didn’t carefully recover our stealth helicopter to us! They took it, and no doubt will give it to their buddies the Chinese, or Russia, or the highest bidder. –Cut off ALL foreign aid to these people.

      “And frankly I think Obama has worn this country down.”

      Perfectly stated. That he has and people are fatigued with his lies. In the natural course of things, presidents take it on the chin when they contradict themselves. Some do it more than others and the score is tallied by the press, in a normal world. But ever since Clinton, when the press started to carry the democrats’ water, even they can’t hide the flop-of-the-day way that barry, the wunderkinder has undertaken to try to skew/slant/alter/change/modify/bend/redirect the message. All to make him look good. Even in the liberal “Obama’s stash” secret circle, people have got to be saying, “You read what? Dat’s not whut I reds” and draw their own conclusions from that. Not that they would ever stop supporting the little tike in the tricycle who pretends to be, and that others let him be president. No. But while they support him, they also cast sideways glances at him. They, at least now, are coming to terms with the fact that he’s a consummate liar.

    I wonder……Will Sen. Kerry award dingleBarry with the Silver Star and Purple Heart for his act of bravery in the face of the Situation Room?

    Rusty, I just got to reading my health insurance policy. 25 years of a moderate but good about payinig policy, so just stuck with it, and I expected prices to go up. I finally, sat down to read on coverage, and I’m just devasted. It means don’t get sick or get hurt.

    I wonder how many other insurance policies are written like mine that you might have to get an attorney
    every time your sick. I’m stunned, shocked, and am sure it has to be with the carry children til 26, because my insurance already took pre-existing. Won’t even pay for a visit to one of those after-cares and emergency visits. The restrictions on getting permission if your dying are written that you will have a heck of job getting them to pay for anything.
    Lots of fine reading. Now any service connected injury you will have to go to VA. And as far as what determines if you have an accident means putting money in pockets.

    The meaning of “insurance” is no longer defined as insurance thanks to Obama’s health care changes.

    I can’t go on….Feel like I’ve been hit with a 2 by 4 by Obama’s interference in Insurance companies business. The insure til children is 26 must be the blow, as mine already had pre-existing injuries. This plan had to be written by Obamies. After 25 years, I will be looking for another plan, but wonder if they aren’t all screwed thanks to Obama’s meddling on our health care. And when do we get the time when our lives are micro-managed by the government.

    Liberals Demise,
    saw a quicky few seconds of John Kerry complaining Pakistan had to have known. Guess he has muddy biscuits and tea on his face, when he made deal to hand them 5 billion.
