Posted on 05/02/2011 12:08:34 AM PDT by STARWISE
The terse announcement came just after 9:45 p.m. Sunday from Dan Pfeiffer, the White House communications director.
POTUS to address the nation tonight at 10:30 PM Eastern Time, he wrote on Twitter, sharing the same message that had just been transmitted to the White House press corps.
According to Brian Williams, the NBC Nightly News anchor, some journalists received a three-word e-mail that simply read, Get to work.
That speculation was not aired out on television immediately, but it did erupt on Twitter and other social networking sites.
Wishful thinking about bin Ladens death ricocheted across the Web and then, at 10:25 p.m., while Mr. Obama was writing his speech, one particular tweet seemed to confirm it. Keith Urbahn, the chief of staff for the former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld, wrote at that time, So Im told by a reputable person they have killed Osama Bin Laden. Hot damn.

Not a shining moment for Brown.
It didn’t happen...congress and the WH came to an agreement but this is what he did....one of my relatives in Afghanistan...got the letter over there...and he said please don’t let this ruin my credit...all the military did get their regular pay...but Zero had the military send out all those letters...here you have men deployed worrying about their wife and children without any money to buy food...pay mortgages...it was awful for all those men, women and their families.
Fox just showed the Reuters photos.
Jeeze .. the it was likely scripted and photographed for the Arab press. Disgusting.
Obama’s pro-Muslim words
Let Barack Hussein Obama speak for himself:
“The person who made me proudest of all though was my (half-brother), Roy. He was converted to Islam.” (DREAMS OF MY FATHER)
“In Indonesia, I spent two years at a Muslim school. . .I studied the Koran.” (DREAMS OF MY FATHER)
“Lolo (Obama’s stepfather) followed Islam. . .I looked to Lolo for guidance.” (AUDACITY OF HOPE)
“I will stand with them (Muslims) should the political winds of war shift in any ugly direction. . .” (AUDACITY OF HOPE)
“We are no longer just a Christian nation. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.” (INAUGURAL SPEECH)
Of the body ? Authentic?
No, of the son and the other two dead guys. The same ones we have posted here on threads.
That was our hopeful naivete .. Brown’s patina has long
since turned to scratched, stained, cracked, dirty and useless. He’s an old fashioned New England, faux moderate political opportunist.
OK .. thanks. I missed those .. are they on this thread?
Oh my .. LOL !
Go here- but you’ll have to wait- there are 6 pics- 3 of dead (with blood) men.
Yep .. in the saner, grownup days. I miss them so ..
Beyond despicable ..
Thanks .. and no OBL .. huh..strange.
I'm not sure why I always feel the need to defend the New England *I* grew up in...but I do. I grew up in a small seaside town in New England and everyone was a hardcore conservative/libertarian although there weren't any labels. No one trusted the government with the exception of our token liberal who spent a lot of time whining about the sandpiper's natural habitat.
People just lived their lives, helping others if needed, minding their own business otherwise and there was a lot of freedom and very, very little fear. In fact- the only times I remember being a tiny bit afraid was during really bad nor'easters when the power was out for a couple of days, and that was more excitement than fear.
Those people would spin in their graves at what New England has become.
Still wearing his golf shoes.
I cannot disagree with anyone you said. Only one part - you said Zero is borderline nutcase. I’d say, “way over the edge into serious pychosis”!
The MSM is the propaganda arm of the left. They have no interest in truth or objectivity at all. They are scum and that is insulting to good honest scum.
I am sooooooo relieved neither GWB nor Bill Clinton are going to Ground Zero.
In fact, I can’t even believe someone in the administration thought this was a good idea. It’s vulgar and undignified.
I *knew* GWB wouldn’t go, and I am pleasantly surprised and duly shocked that BC took a pass, too!
No photos from Reuters of bin Laden- because these photos were taken by the Pakis AFTER we had left with the body of bin Laden. These Paki officials then sold them to Reuters.
Free market at work- gotta love it!
I highly doubt Ozerp writes anything he reads or says. NYT covering for the socialist. Again.
