Targeting Bin Laden

It has only been a few months since Bin Laden was killed in a "top secret" Navy Seal operation, and already the Discovery channel has a full length documentary outlining the event in extraordinary detail (including a full set of interviews with Obama about the decision making process). Boy that was fast! How long is sensitive information like this normally supposed to stay classified? You rarely see television documentaries on highly classified black ops, especially so soon after the event. I watched the doc with great interest and enjoyed it, even Obama's detailed descriptions of his decisions was entertaining. Obama has every right to thump his chest on this one, and I can understand if they fast tracked the declassification process in order to get the film crew in and out before the 10th year anniversary of 9/11. Had I been President and killed Bin Laden, I would probably have done the same thing.


  1. This show can be described as pure fictional propaganda and its sole purpose was the elevation and promotion of Obama. That’s why they got the access they did. They could structure the narrative anyway they liked and the viewing public wouldn’t have a clue on how they’re being manipulated and conned.

  2. I agree. This is all in the effort to promote the 2012 presidential election, so Obama can be considered a hero. Too bad all his other decisions (or lack of) are not consistent in supporting the American people. It's all about him.

  3. Yes, I see it in a similar light...

    ...the 2012 election.

    Killing enemy terrorists may be his biggest asset.

    The economy will likely be his biggest disadvantage.
