Osama 0 : Obama 1
Barack Obama got a 9 point poll boost on the news that Osama bin Laden has been shot dead on May 1 in Abbottabad, Pakistan by Seal Team Six of the US Navy Seals. Osama 0 : Obama 1.
Half the world considers it an amazing feat because … half the world had thought that Osama is dead already. But they too can now celebrate the “Obama got Osama” occasion with special commemorative T-shirts, ties, mugs, buttons, etc. Bin Laden Dead gifts are selling like hot cakes.
The name of the Seal who shot Osama in the head (reportedly above the left eye) and chest is… well, nobody knows. The US Navy Seals is a highly secretive unit with about 2 500 members – chosen from the 8 500 hardy men that serve in the Naval Special Warfare Command – and they’re not exactly the kind that will be walking the streets with placards naming the hero of their finest hour.
On the other hand, Obama’s men (not exactly hardy men) are waving the banners, taking credit for a job that everyone thought was or shoud have been done 10 years ago.
