They just want to offer some realities to those who were too desperate, too gullible, or just too unworldly to understand they were being sold - and they'd better check out what they were actually getting for the price they'd pay.

God, I wish you'd been there for my husband many, many years ago.  He just needed a way to pay for a college education, and he didn't mind working hard for Uncle Sam for 3 years to do it.  No one we knew had even heard of Viet-Nam at the time.  PTSD, which took 20 years to pull him deep into a bottle, ruined the rest of his/our life.

I'm so sorry to hear it. Yeah, it's rough.  My oldest brother was career air-force and did multiple tours in Vietnam.  His filed was electronics - so he spent most of his time at the University of Saigon, teaching.  As tings go, he was lucky.

And/or they feel that by killing him, it is still more covering up of the crime. Complex feelings, but the dynamic is born from what they believe and what percentage believe it.

Not too many NYers are Truthers.

That picture's been around for years.  It was fake before Osama was even dead.
And for those that don't believe he's really dead, what do you need?
A Death Certificate?  Is there going to be a Deather movement now?

    Ha! very good call. Alex Jones will have that "movement"(how appropriate) started within hours.

That's what I was thinking, but what do I know? 
Never even been there.
I assume that it's about the same percentage as the rest of the country.

Just for reference, %12 of people still think Elvis is alive.

I know, right?
Keep in mind, though, that it's a worldwide survey, not just the US.  Which is why Israel shows up.  And 25% of people don't know because 25% of people couldn't find their ass with a tennis racquet.

Interesting that they went after Quadaffi a day or so before the scheduled OBL raid- I've read that the latter was postponed for 24 hrs due to weather.

That caught my eye too.  My only regret is that bin Laden wasn't buried next to Moammar.  I know/knew people he's killed or maimed across the world spanning four decades.  It's hard to name a thrill kill cult he hasn't helped finance dating back to Baader-Meinhof, The Red Japanese Army and continuing through The Shining Path, etc.  Along the way he sponsored terrorist bombings at two airports in Italy, another at the LaBelle Disco in Berlin, and of course Pan Am 747 over Lockerbie.  That's a short list.   At least bin Laden issued a declaration of war and the reasons for it. Moammar kills for kicks.
 
I mention this because a lot of people in the U.S. were condemning the bombing of Moammar's home.  Apparently they are too young to remember his crimes against humanity.  Even Beyonce Knowles and other prominent, young entertainers gave personal performances for Moammar and his family.  They apparently gave back the money after they discovered he has a history giving out poisoned candy to guests.

Yeah, not to mention all other records. Would be interesting to see what outside support there may have been. I have never thought He was a mastermind, able to manage all logistics without some assistance from some fairly powerful people.

We already are telling Pakistan to F off. Depending on what those records say we may be calling out a lot of other groups for helping OBL.

I having a feeling the Alex Jones crowd will be having a heyday with conjecture. We all knew nuts would say OBL is still alive, but that will fade. Those electronic records will be the true conspiracy motherload.

Mmmm, Truthers. If you are saying that not too many NYers are demanding the truth about what really happened then I agree. Not too many people are demanding the truth about the JFK assassination, but a large majority believe other than reported. But I doubt that was your point, NYers not pursuing the truth vigorously. 

According to my info, what I had heard previously, and it is my understanding now that the majority of NYers think it was an inside job in someway. And, they are pissed. They live there. A family member of theirs has died, they know someone who has died, they know someone who was there and say this isn't true or that isn't true... they talk "amongst themselves". Word gets around, neighbors, family, friends, they are all connected. What they know isn't what the rest of us are told.

There have been many polls done on 911 and what people think about it. A 2004 Zogby poll of NYers showed just over half believe there is a coverup.

Nationwide polls have shown 85% do not believe the official story regarding 911.

A net search yields links to many polls done, "911 inside job poll" or similar search terms.

I have to stand by my understanding of things until shown otherwise. That the percentage of NYers who said they are angry at OBL's death is born from the percentage of who believes what they believe in NY.

Yeah, about the OBL code name "Geronimo"-  Sorry people, not trying to be perturbing to anyone's sensibilities but...

   <begin perfunctory self-righteous rant>
                    I mean, I exactly live in the land of Geronimo, and in fact, associate and carouse with his tribal descendants on a daily basis.  But this thin-skinned crap about using my man Geronimo's name being disrespectful is a buncha crap fellas, so chill out ese'.  To anyone who knows the local history, it might even appear to be exceedingly appropriate, possibly honorable.  Homeboys don't care about this shit Holmes.  Where the fuck are you from again?  It's the race warriors who are always ready to yelp that they've been wounded in their racial pride somehow, that I enjoy practicing non-cooperation with.  Toughen up boys, the land of Geronimo is fucking hot.  You can't let every misappropriated or insensitive word or terminology get you all worked up and sweaty with yer loincloths all wadded up uncomfortable like.  Geronimo is just his Mexican slang name anyway so shut the fuck up.  I have one of the original photos that he used to let people take of him for a dime.  You think he's going to feel bad for being an international fatwah martyr icon?  Here's a hanky, go ahead cry.  What the hell are you thinking, that you're sensitive, tough, or stupid- which one?  You bring more disrespect to his name by being whiny pansies.

Ok, done.  At least I was not addressing anyone on this board.  Thanks for reading my venting.  At ease.

Thanks for that; I heard that news item in the car just as I was parking today.  I got out of the car saying, a bit too loudly, "Oh PUH-leeze, aren't we precious! (insert sound of car door slam)"  got a couple of funny looks (can't blame 'em) and went about my business.

As I've said before, I'm a WASP - and to be perfectly honest don't know a whole lot about modern Native American politics, so maybe there is something here i don't understand - but this just struck me as petty.

oh well - least I wasn't the first one to say it here.  ::)


====

A quick PS:  Okay, after reading the article I see that "Geronimo" was  the code name for bin Laden himself, not the operation (as I had thought)  - so I can see being a bit miffed - but geeze - still . . .

His relations are gonna get us all back by taking our money in their fancy casinos anyway.

oooooooooooo did I just say that?

It was either gonna be "code name geronimo" or "kill the motherfucker" and it being so close to mother's day... well you can see the problem.

Yeah, no picture is no good. For all I care the gov can set up a dedicated website just for it. Look at your own risk. But show the picture for closure. As for offending Muslims, I think any offense would have occurred when OBL was shot in the head.

there are photos
they will not be released to try an avoid getting all kinds of people all crazy-like.
I'm not arguing the rightness or wrongness of this choice, I'm just confused about what changed.

Picture aside, the details of the raid keep changing.  First they said he was armed, then changed that to say he was not.  They said he used a woman as a human shield, then changed that too.  They said there was video of the entire thing, and now they say there is no video.  Yesterday Sen Scott Brown said "I saw the picture, he is dead."  Today Sen Brown says, "the picture I saw was fake."  I'm not doubting what happened here, but the details are getting really muddied.

Don't believe anything that came out in the first eight hours of the story unless it's still being reported now. It's a pretty safe bet that was rumor, speculation and scuttlebutt that media types toss out there to fill time while the real info is dribbling out.
