Unreal: Obama Allows Photos of Dead US Soldiers But Not Dead Terrorist

This ought to make you sick…
The official Obama policy:

Photos of dead US soldiers – Good.
Photos of dead Osama Bin Laden – Bad.

In February 2009, his second month in office, Barack Obama changed official policy to allow photos of dead US soldiers.
The LA Times reported:

The Obama administration has decided to open the gates of Dover. In a policy to be unveiled today, Pentagon officials told reporters, Defense Secretary Robert Gates — the only holdover from the Bush administration — will announce that news photos of flag-draped coffins will be allowed, as long as families agree.

But, this week Barack Obama announced that he would not release photos of dead Osama Bin Laden.
The White House said:

“There are sensitivities here in terms of the appropriateness of releasing photos of Osama Bin Laden… because of the sentitivities… Does it serve or harm our interests domestically and locally. It could be inflammatory.”

    Strange how now that the flag draped coffins of the US Military are on Obama’s watch, the news thinks it is no longer newsworthy to show them.

    Trump is smart like a fox – I can’t wait for him to put Obama and all his ignorant suck-ups in their place…….prison.

  • Betsy Ross

    Barack Obama is one of those people you come across every now and then in the course of life. In order to make himself look big he has to make others appear small.
    In his case, he is diminishing an ENTIRE country so that HE can appear large. Sad, very sad.

    Meanwhile illegal aliens are completely overwhelming our infrastructures…Dept. Of Education warning strapped local governments not to deny illegals a free education..citing plyler v. Doe. It really is time Americans get very vocal before it’s too late.

    Lannie davis on fox news just claimed the diecision to give bin laden a full muslim ritual burial at sea was made by the military. He is being disingenuous, generals and admiral take orders from the commader in chief, the president. They can not publicly contradict him. Obama gave the order that sharia law must be observed and no one else bears any responsibility.

    Why do Obama inconsistencies surprise anyone? He is a Muslim appeaser and unconcerned about the feelings or opinions of traditional American citizens. If you voted for him, you are part of the problem. Next time think it out!

    Taotal islamic custom, Bah. IT should have been a Lady Gaga moment with prock chops and bacon a couple of hams to wt him down.Nothing wrong with vengeance. Our people were vaporized.

    Show me your school record Obummer? D-s on most classes describes whey you are a 100% assidiot. 😉

  • uggy parfait

    Someone at New York Mag. did a peice where Obama runs guns to mexican Drug cartels to use against the boarder agents he forces to disarm. THis is a madman in office, a lunatic Jihadi, who probably saved Osama in the raid.

    “There are sensitivities here in terms of the appropriateness…”

    Yeah right!

    Our dead soldiers were killed by INSENSITIVE “radical” (must be “PC” here) Muslims! If “Ears” is so concerned about endangering our military men & women now by releasing the photos – new flash: They all ready are in danger, have been in danger and will continue to be in danger.

    “He” needs to come up with a better excuse! Better yet, release the damn photos of bin Laden!

    It is simple to understand. . .

    Obama hates America – – it’s past, present and so he tries to take it down. . .

    No respect for our military or OUR CONSTITUTION that he promised to uphold. . . he loathes it.

    2012 can’t come soon enough. . .

    Obama — Incompetent, Inept, Inexperienced. . .now Inexcusable O-buma!

    How can it be denied that BO’s decisions aid our enemy…

    To show them pictures of our beloved dead and not show pictures of our successes in this war only serves to give our enemy hope that they’re winning and we can be defeated.

    Exactly!! Well put!

  • BurmaShave

    Oh yeah, when I think of Osama bin Ladin I think of sensitivities … after I think of a pig in a flowing white sheet.

  • Jules Hamil

    All of these comments are “spot on”; however, how in the world are we going to survive until we can get rid of him? He’s such a liar, has absolutely no integrity plus bringing our entire America down to his level. We must work hard to defeat Obama…..four more years will sink our Country.

    Go to Drudgereport, lefthand column, for some crazy goings-on in Iran that the right-O-sphere seems to be missing entirely.

    I don’t know why you do not stress that Obama knew about the Osama compound over a year ago but did nothing until he could use the ‘kill’ to silence critics a la trump and for his reelection campaign. as I told you before the order was always ‘kill’. the video Obama released from after the ‘kill’ was produced to appear like an episode from the West Wing. they plan to use the photo ops from this last week in their reelection montage videos.

  • fishy

    Why is Obumbler allowing illegal activity and is thumbing his nose at laws that he deems irrelevant like DOMA and immigration issues? Because, he broke laws from a teenager, his parents and grandparents broke laws, and his friends are all criminals like Ayers, Daley, Rezko, etc.

    THe only reason he is with Michelle is because Odumba was too stupid to pass the bar and to try cases. She is the one who helped him, just like Elizabeth Edwards basically did John Edwards’ work in law school.

    But Betsy, he does look very small. His time is running out, the hour glass has the sands of time, and its almost empty for him. The country has had enough. Its time for the military to do what they should of done 2 years ago.

    I believe we will see historical change in the next month or two. And it’s not the hope and change O wanted. All good things in life take time. Good will come soon.

    Barack Obama’s favorite advocacy organization, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN),: has taken on the task of becoming the New Jihad for the destruction of Ameirca.

    When will people beome tired of having the enemy in the white house?
