The FBI and CIA weren't communicating with one another at the end of Clinton's presidency and beginning of Bush's, so valuable intelligence that might have tipped us off to 9/11 wasn't put together in time to do anything (be it capturing Osama or finding the hijackers). Also, because of the intelligence disconnect, not a lot of information was available on Osama's travel, general where-abouts, circle of trusted subordinates, etc. so it would have been near impossible to run an offensive on the guy.

    But what the hell, let's blame one guy. It's completely logical, right?

    7 out of 15 guys were nypd or fdny on my chelsea piers hockey team, gone.

    My uncle, gone, his two kids my cousins no father.

    Yes bin laden dead is a good thing, but "closure"? Hardley.


    And those calling it "justice"? I disagree "vengence" is more appropriate, and i am fine with that.
    I have read and seen numerous interviews (so far) with those that lost loved ones on 9/11, and apart from you, they are elated, rejoicing, and some have said they now have closure. Based-on that, I would think that your feelings are unique.

You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    Depending on how much of that time is waiting in queue for previous samples to be processed, it seems so.
    I would think that this particular DNA sample would immediately displace any others that were in queue ahead of it anyhow.

    But no less significant. Some people are able to find closure in certain actions, others are not. Nothing wrong with that.

I also read somewhere that there were no photos taken of Bin Laden's body.
    This is incorrect. FNC just reported that the white house is debating on whether to release the photo taken of him to quell any conspiracy theories about his death. So there is at least one photo. They would be NUTS not to photograph this for proof to the world.

    I think it depends on the person. I've seen articles with people who feel closure, but I've also seen some that don't.

    IMO, the Administration would be NUTS if they announced this without having any ACTUAL proof that Osama is dead.

    The last thing they need is Osama making another ****in video and saying "surprise, mother****as! Y'all think you got me, didn't you?? Sike! bwahahahaa"

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    go to iTune radio, tune to 770Wabc, 880cbs, 1010wins, 660 the fan, 710wor, and listen for yourself. Many family members are calling in and stating what I feel.


    no they are not unique, Neither is my aunts or my friends who I have been in contact with.


    elation, and rejoicing, are far to strong. I am happy that mothervucker is dead, but closure? "rejoicing" "elation"? hardley, these folks are still dead.... America, **** yeah!


    But lets put it in perspective.

    1999 - Not that it would've helped all that much but Bill DID launch a cruise missile.
