Fox News announced minutes ago following a White House press conference that Barack Obama refuses to release the photos of a dead Usama bin Laden. The news comes after the Administration had led the media to believe that such photos would be released. It is also notable that the story of the operation that took place on Sunday in Pakistan continues to change with each passing day.
The latest discrepancy reported by the White House is that bin Laden was killed at the compound in which he was found. But the common assumption, promoted by the Administration, is that bin Laden was ‘captured and killed.’ Officials suggested that bin Laden was captured at the compound, led away to a place where he was killed,and then placed on a Nacy Seal helicopter. A Senior CIA official today, however, stated that bin Laden was not ‘captured’ but killed on the spot. This is entirely inconsistent with what Obama told a group of mililtary officials and media personnel at the special meeting on Monday.
But this is only the tip of the iceberg.
The public had been told by Admiinstration officials that bin Laden was killed in a blazing fire-fight during which bin Laden fired shots at the Navy Seals and used his own wife as a human shield. That story has changed. Administration officials now say that bin Laden was unarmed and that his wife was not being used as a shield at all. The Seals fired shots when bin Laden’s wife reportedly reached for a firearm.
And of course there is the huge discrepancy in the initial report by the Administration that bin Laden was killed one week prior to this past Suinday, and that the delay in making the announcement was due to extensive DNA tests. Then we were told by the President himself on Sunday evening that the operation was carried out that very day. It was only then that the official story of the Administration changed.
Perhaps it is no wonder the President took so long Sunday night to make a statement. The statement was delayed multiple times. Could the delays be due to the fact that an inept Administration frantically attempted to get its story straight? If so, it succeeded only in setting the date of the operation. Even since Sunday, this Administration continues to bumble its way through one of the most important events since 9/11.
The blame for the fact that Americans have come to doubt everthing Obama and his operatives say can be laid directly at the feet of this Administration.
