Next Time, Use FedEx
by Ann Coulter

The CIA stepped up the search for Osama bin Laden last week after becoming as sick of royal wedding coverage as the rest of us.

American intelligence operations located Osama by following his trusted couriers, whose names were given up by al-Qaida members during harsh interrogations at CIA black sites under President Bush.

Yes, the same interrogations endlessly denounced by the entire Democratic Party (save Joe Lieberman), the mainstream media, and an especially indignant Jane Mayer in The New Yorker.

I don’t suppose the students who were with President Bush on that fateful day will be able to shut those morons up now? Naw….didn’t think so!  I’ve always said that his behavior that morning was the RIGHT way to handle things.  All those morons, even nearly 10 years later, that are constantly shouting “it’s for the chiiiiilllllruuunssss” don’t give a damn about those children!  Or any other children for that matter.

Now, do me, and every other rational person a favor and….

Top Six Reasons We Got Osama bin Laden
The Foundry

Taking down Osama bin Laden was an achievement resulting from a culmination of a decade of national security policy. Soft power and diplomacy helped along the way, but it was hard power and military might that made it possible. President George W. Bush put the correct policies in place, including the PATRIOT Act, Gitmo and increased intelligence gathering. President Barack Obama was wise to continue executing many of the same strategies. Here are the main reasons we were able to take him out.

Justice

Was Bin Laden’s Killing Legal?

Claus Kress, an international law professor at the University of Cologne, argues that achieving retributive justice for crimes, difficult as that may be, is “not achieved through summary executions, but through a punishment that is meted out at the end of a trial.” Kress says the normal way of handling a man who is sought globally for commissioning murder would be to arrest him, put him on trial and ultimately convict him. In the context of international law, military force can be used in the arrest of a suspect, and this may entail gun fire or situations of self-defense that, in the end, leave no other possibility than to kill a highly dangerous and highly suspicious person. These developments can also lead to tragic and inevitable escalations of the justice process.

Well, professor, I don’t know what they do over there in the snotty, sanctimonious EU, but we Americans shoot mad dogs!

It is unfortunate. And it is certainly no reason for the indescribable jubilation that broke out on Sunday night across America — and especially not for applause inside the CIA’s operations center.

I don’t remember much condemnation when we saw muslims dancing in the street when the planes crashed into the Towers and collapsed. Where was the condemnation of the Pallies passing out sweets when the Fogel family was slaughtered. No, just the Americans are condemned when the pig that ordered the slaughter of innocent men, women and children, is brought to JUSTICE! And yes, it is justice. Although, as horrible as it may sound, it was TOO swift. He should have been made to suffer, the same way his actions have made so many thousands of others suffer, both non-muslim, AND muslim.

So, professor, take your European arrogance, and shove it where the sun don’t sun! Just because you are a bunch of pantywaist, limp wristed sycophants, does not mean we are!

For years, the very principle of international law has been to pursue justice rather than war. On Sunday, Obama said that bin Laden’s fate is a “testament to the greatness of our country.” If the United States had used the same power it deployed during the invasion of Iraq to force tyrants such as Saddam Hussein or Moammar Gadhafi — not to mention the mass murderer Osama bin Laden — into the dock of an international court, one might have believed him.

Screw your ‘international court’. This is the United States of America! We SHOOT rabid dogs!

Protesters against TN guns-on-campus bill get a win

“It very much scares me, as a faculty member, that the person in the office next door to me might be carrying a gun,” said Debbie Ingram, a professor of physical therapy at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and the mother of a University of Tennessee-Knoxville student.

Well ma’am, as a faculty member, which would you rather have?  A fellow faculty member, armed and trained, or a crazed shooter, with NO ONE TO SAVE YOUR LIBTARD ASS?
