Bin Laden, No Picture, Explanation

Filed under: Politics — admin @ 12:23 am

Ever since President Obama made it known to the world that he would not disclose photos showing Bin Laden’s death, I became intrigued because I don’t accept the official explanation.

The official one goes like this. The “very graphic images” could incite violence and become propaganda tools for terrorists. Flaunting his death photos might “make the US look like it is revelling in Bin Laden’s death, and spark reprisals in the Arab world.”

The unofficial one may look like this. Bin Laden’s death photo will reveal the execution style close-ranged killing done by the self-appointed executioners who, intead of handing the criminal to the court and let the court issue death sentence, took the law in their own hands and cut off the life, quick and dirt. What an example for others to follow!

Something in this event reminds me of the killings done by Japanese in China. Very often, these Japanese would execute Chinese, one by one, in front of the whole village, calling it “execute one as a warning to others.” History is never in need of duplicates.

  1. Your explanation is about as plausible as any given so far. Obama keeps doing things that I cannot explain very well.
