Whatever Wednesdays-Osama Bin Laden Controversy

Posted on the 04 May 2011 by Shawndrarussell
I usually don't usually get political on here because I just don't want to go there. But, when it comes to this huge event, I feel like I can't ignore it. People are saying that this is a military victory, NOT an Obama victory. Why are we even having this discussion? Why is it either/or? I can't even believe that either side of this unnecessary debate even exists. All that matters is, that Bin Laden is gone, which means we are one step closer to the war being over, one step closer to bringing all of our troops home, one step closer to crumbling Al-Queda. I actually read that someone said, "Just for the record, Obama DID NOT kill Osama--an American solider did." Really? You mean Obama didn't actually shoot him with his own two hands? That is just a ridiculous discussion to even be having. In his announcement, Obama emphasized the word "we" as in "we the American military" took down Obama. Why can't we all just come together in celebration instead of nitpicking at each other and blaming people? What should be a great week in America has turned ugly. Come on, America. We are better than this.
