Champion of the Sun: Don't know why the current president gets a pass


Gets a pass for what? You don't believe they really killed him? Then where's his new tape showing everyone he's alive and effectively destroying the Obama administration? Batteries on the camera must be dead.

Champion of the Sun: We shot him in the face and dumped him into the ocean. That's the official story from day one. If it happened in 2006 and Bush told us to trust him on it,would we? Don't know why the current president gets a pass. At least he's not assassinating citizens without trial as well.


But it didn't happen in 2006. We could play what-ifs all day.

The simple fact that there has not been a single shred of evidence to disprove his death (recent photo/video/audio etc.) probably means the dude is dead.

If you were one of the most hated/feared men on the planet, and a country issues a newsflash that they killed you (when they didn't), wouldn't your first move be to put out some sort of release saying "Hey, I'm still alive!"

Of course you would. And it would ruin Obama. He's not stupid enough to declare bin laden dead if he wasn't sure that he was.

I know Osama is dead,I just think the shot him in the face take our word for it thing is accepted so totally. There are more Newton school shooting theorists than Osama conspiracy theories. I think bush would've engendered more conspiracy theories had he been the one to kill bin Laden. And everyone there went down in a non combat helicopter accident.

m00: chasd00: He wasn't captured because if he were alive in US custody every single American in every single country becomes a kidnap target to be held for ransom in exchange for Osama's release. There would be hundreds, if not more, beheadings of American tourists and military showing up on youtube constantly.


Ah, so one day a prosecutor will charge you with a crime. But he gets to skip the trial. Because "someone might kidnap someone else and hold them ransom for your release."

You must be a blast on Fark cop threads.


I was wondering where all these justice was served without a trial types are on capital punishment after a trial. Judging by who is speaking and their political persuasion I can guess.

The outrage from some if you simply say it should not have been an assassination is interesting. It says something about them.

Think of all those we do bring back for trial. Escobar. Ron Jeremy. Every number 2 not killed by a missile.

I guess we should assassinate Snowden too. No need for a trial.

John Adams defended the British soldiers from the Boston Massacre. We have a long history of governing by law.

Lsherm: I cannot believe a team that was waiting for extraction after already crashing a helicopter would break discipline like that. They were already pressed for time, the house was full of children, and they weren't supposed to be in Pakistan in the first place. When were they supposed to play target practice with his body?


Maybe they did it while they were waiting for extraction.

They weren't sitting around, they were gathering as much evidence as they could because they knew the Pakistani clean-up team was right behind them.  They were there for 38 minutes, start to finish.  I just can't seem them all saying "wait, let's spend five minutes each emptying a clip into this already dead guy because emotions and stuff."

That wasn't a team of Gomer Pyles just off the damn bus, these are people specifically brainwashed to follow orders to the letter, or, in the event of a catastrophe, figuring out the best way to achieve their objectives.  I think they'd be offended that people would think they would do this not because they give a shiat about being seen as gloating killers, but because it suggests they weren't doing their damn job properly.  And if there's one thing SEALs are proud of, it's their job.

They  only carried a few hundred rounds?  And they didn't have 10 - 15 seconds to spare?

That makes even less sense.

No it wasn't.  Unless you think a guy can organize and carry out an attack that kills thousands of people then just say "time out guys, I'm not playing right now".

To be fair, he was at home base. Everyone is safe at home base.

At least three of us should do that.

Also the fact that I was never in the military should really get the conspiracy theorists going.

"They had dudes who were never even officially in the military taking souvenirs of all three of Osama's testicles."

You don't actually have to have that.  It doesn't really do anything.  You just tell them that's what they are being shot with.  You just want them to fear it and believe it could happen to them and then the terrorists you have won

Yeah the story is complete bullshiat.  They were way too busy collecting intel and setting up defensive positions, remember they didn't know if a few hundred al Qaeda and the entire Pakistani army were going to show up before the spare chopper.

Plus each of the soldiers. Most likely had the military equivalent of a go-pro camera on their helmet and their gun recording what they saw and shot.

Now I will tell you this, on the helicopter ride back to the carrier that recording equipment would have been turned off and they had nothing but time, and very sharp knives.  So, if someone had taken a small keepsake or two to remember the occasion I would be less than surprised, especially if they had already been informed of the decision to dispose of the body.

So, if you find yourself in the Dam Creek Virginia NCO Club  and see what appears to be two really big raisins nailed to a plaque with an inscription reading "For the victims of 911,  ask the guy next to you about it.  If you get a knowing smile and a shrug, buy him a drink.

Then execute partially, send to hospital & revive, rinse repeat. Nine times.

He wasn't an American citizen, he wasn't within our borders, so he was an enemy combatant.  He didn't need nor deserve a trial.  He was still actively trying to harm Americans.  We don't have a trial for every enemy soldier we kill during a war.  The only real difference is that he tried to hide behind a lack of formal declaration of war by a nation-state he was a citizen of, but I'm willing to let that slide.

If you assume 4 shooters on the entry team, that's less than a full mag each, so it's not completely implausible.   I agree with you that it does strain credibility that some of the best and most disciplined combat soldiers on the planet would suddenly lose their fire discipline. 

Now, if they chucked an m67 or two into the room before they went in, yeah, I could see that turning him into chunky salsa.
