    Is the Government revealing too much from and about the death of Osama?

    I think they should shut up already.

    What I'm talking about is all the intel they got, who did the operation, and the like. They've put the terrorists on notice, and had they simply stated they killed Osama... and fed misinformation... like... he was isolated and had lost authority, it might be easier to keep the idiots calm, let them communicate and pick them off.

    Perhaps they are feeding misinformation to the press, and in reality got far less than advertised in an effort to increase tensions amongst the network(s), thereby increase their insecurities, their activity and mistakes.

    If it's the latter, then it's a great ploy, but I think it's the former and wish they'd have revealed almost nothing. Osama is dead, is fish food and that is all we needed to now.

    And you?

    I think conservatives are just looking for anything to whine about. Good news in WOT, good news on unemployment, lackluster republican debate, it's not a good week for you all and so you are searching for anything you can find to whine about.

    Zimmer, weren't you saying in the other thread you'd prefer it if they released his photo, and now you're deriding them for releasing too much info? Methinks Redress is right.

    Their credibility is such that what they have to say now is pretty meaningless. Rabid liberals will believe all the contradictory stories and conservatives won't believe any.

    I haven't been following the idiotic hack comments from either side concerning this issue. Looking at it completely objectively, I would agree. There is no reason to release more intel and information. We don't need to let potential enemies know how we do things.

    Actually there are concrete reasons why we do release such info, beyond it's political value at home. Just one such is to dissuade the terrorists from going forward with plans that even knowing some details would be still hard to stop.

    I am concerned about national security and exploiting what we have to the absolute maximum so we can rid ourselves of the assholes that have disrupted what was a fairly peaceful time before 911.

    It's got zero to do with whining about anything. I want the Mother****ers that are causing us grief to find a quick end. Them and their perverted ideology.

    Why was the media allowed to know about equipment?
