Future President Barack Henry Obama declared this week that Osama Bin Laden is free because of the Republicans...but let's not start showering them with praise just yet. I'm pretty sure they intended to kill him.
As anyone held unjustly at Gitmo or Abu Ghraib can tell you, these warmongering neocon Bushies know nothing about the concept of "innocent until proven guilty". Instead of arresting Bin Laden, reading him his rights, providing him with a court-appointed defense attorney, then releasing him on bail so he could prepare his civil lawsuit against the Bush Administration, it was their full intention to hunt Bin Laden down like an animal and execute him. It was only by pure luck, not the help of the GOP, that the so-called "terrorist" was able to slip out of the U.S. military's murderous grasp.
I admire Obama for attempting to raise the current level of political discourse by offering his opponents a friendly compliment, but make no mistake - the Republicans are under the misguided belief that the 9/11 attacks were not just a felony misdemeanor, but an act of WAR. Given the chance, they would have killed Bin Laden in complete defiance of Barack Obama, John Kerry, and everything Democrats stand for.
