On this, the day after the first anniversary of the untimely death of master terrorist and mass murderer Osama bin Laden, since we have seemingly escaped Islamic retaliation for that cleansing of the planet, Americans should all rejoice that we have our president.
By now, Osama’s sorry carcass has been consumed by ravenous fishes not very selective about what they eat andÂ it seems altogether fitting and proper to honor the man most responsible for ridding the world of the vermin that once was bin Laden.
While the courageous men of SEAL Team Six may have technically pulled the triggers at the vermin’s slummy compound in beautiful, downtown Abbottabad, every reasonable person knows in their heart of hearts thatÂ President Barack Hussein Obama deserves theÂ credit.Â
Accordingly, for the reader’s listening and viewing pleasure,Â I am reprisingÂ Paul Shanklin’s memorable rendition of “The Man Who Shot Osama bin Laden,” which was first heard on Rush Limbaugh’s radio showÂ last May.Â
The song had been removed by YouTube due to alleged “copyright infringements” but, thanks to my tireless searching and in the interests of providing a public service, I have beenÂ able toÂ retrieve it.Â WARNING: The presentation is replete with graphic graphics showing the deceased bin Laden in all his inglorious,Â dead splendor.Â Â

False rumors have been circulating that our heroic leader was somewhat less of a hero and failed to provide any leadership at all during the tense hours leading up to his finest foreignÂ policy achievement.Â They are all poppycock!Â
Americans should disregard as meaningless multiple reports that our president was so upset over the prospect of killing another human being a year ago that heÂ retreated fromÂ theÂ White House Situation Room, went to bed, and left the momentous decision to either then-CIA Director Leon PanettaÂ or Special Ops Admiral William McRaven.Â
Shortly after the Abbotabad raid, The Washington D.C. Insider revealed thatÂ ObamaÂ had been “overruled” byÂ American military and intelligence experts due to his â€œpersistent hesitation to actâ€ on the matter and it was left toÂ Panetta to make the call. (http://bit.ly/mFKhcv)Â
That canard is absolutely ridiculous.
Â So, too, isÂ a recent, baseless, report byÂ Time Magazine an absurdity.
Time alleges a CIA memo purportedly proved that Adm. McRaven was in full control after the president greenlighted the ambiguous mission “to get” bin Laden but, more concerned over covering his ass, he failed toÂ spell out the specific aim, i.e., whether he was to be captured or killed.

Who can believe Time Magazine, anyway?Â
Likewise, who can trust obviously disaffected and un-AmericanÂ Navy SEALS?Â A number of former and current SEALS have come forward to denounce the commander-in-chief for using them as “ammunition” in his re-election campaign.Â They told London’s Daily Mail that Obama is reprehensible for taking credit for what they accomplished.Â
As one SEAL traitor said in that foreign publication,Â ”But the more he tries to take the credit for it, the more the ground operators are saying, ‘Come on, man!’ It really didnâ€™t matter who was president.”Â (http://bit.ly/ISvH57)Â
Those SEALsÂ are undoubtedly and transparently Mitt Romney operatives trying to undermine America and the Anointed One!Â
President Obama alone made the “gutsy call” to kill Osama bin Laden and that’s all there is to it!Â Carpers such as mean-spirited Republicans and ultra-leftists like Ariana Huffington who contend using that killing as a campaign issue is “despicable” are simply out of touch with reality.Â Â
The truth is contained in Al Shanklin’s “The Man Who Shot Osama bin Laden” and especially inÂ the line, “He was the bravest of them all.”Â And, don’t you forget it!
