    And most unbelievably:

    Speaking on CBS "Face the Nation," President Obama's Jt. Chiefs Vice Chair James Winnefeld slammed Trump for "piling humiliation" on ISIS after the operation.

    "If you look back at the bin Laden raid, we treated his body with respect that is due under Islam," he said.

    Sure, the White House should have brought back a shred of an organ (no guessing which pleases the libtards most) to the White House for a sombre Muslim burial. Obama and Hillary would have approved it. Come to think of it, both are rather silent at the moment.
    I guess Trump’s display of jingoism appealed to you.

    As Trump described the end of Al Baghadadi, in sickening and provocatively humiliating terms, you cheered loudly.

    I doubt that you cheered at all when Bin Landen was killed. Maybe you were one of the ones who fell for Karl Rove’s repeated attempts to declare Bin Laden dead. Right wing media ran after tha football several times.

    Meanwhile, the fools gold fuhrer is stationing US troops in Saudi Arabia, the very thing that Osama bin Laden cited as an inspiration for his activities.

    Oh, and thereís nothing unusual about any publication going through several iterations of headlines before publishing in a fast moving event.

    And , there is nothing unusual about a right wing trash blog trying to make something out of it. Zero Hedge doesnít have these problems. They never check anything.

    So you think they do things right there?

    There's a lot of gaslighting going on right now from the Obama admin officials trying to claim that shooting bin Laden in the face and dumping his body in the ocean was somehow "respectful"...

    But really, the really broken part of this new disgusting narrative is that either of these monsters deserved respect in the first place.

    Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi doused a man in a cage in gasoline and set him of fire on live TV and people are stressing over how we treat the bits of him that were left after he blew himself and three of his children to bits... and they are doing this in an effort to score political points...

    ... I don't think you realize how self defeating that statement actually is.

    I cheered loudly. I'd like to see pictures of his smoldering bits so I could pee on them.

    Oh yea, we should never humiliate a terrorist and mass murderer.

    Letís see Trump was slammed because he humiliated a mass murderer and because of the order he thanked other countries and organizations (he named Russia first according to another thread).
    Iím sure he will be slammed for not notifying Schiff. Good thing, the soldiers would be dead because Schiff would have leaked it.
    In Trumpís first 120 days in office there were 126 leaks by Obama loyalists who want to destroy this country.

    The extremists of Islam will always hate us no matter what. Iím not too concerned with their feelings.

    Winnefeld is an idiot. Bagdadi blew himself up, so not only did he disrespect his own body, he had innocent men decapitated and burned alive on TV.
