If you’re looking for a contender for one of the most outrageous things said in the aftermath of Osama bin Laden‘s killing, look no further than liberal radio host Mike Malloy who basically suggested that if Bin Laden was killed by a Navy Seal unit then so should former President George W. Bush. Well if Malloy simply looked for an attention-grabbing statement, then get out the “mission accomplished” banner.
“I have heard some commentators talk about the fact that, all the lives that have been lost in this war on terror, and now the summary execution of the person responsible. But as soon as I heard that, I thought, well, bin Laden really didn’t have anything to do – did he – with Iraq? . . . All the death in Iraq was not caused by bin Laden. The death in Iraq was caused by George W. Bush. Five thousand Americans, tens of thousands permanently damaged and shot to pieces, a million Iraqis dead – that wasn’t bin Laden. That was George Bush. So when does Seal Unit 6, or whatever it’s called, drop in on George Bush? Bush was responsible for a lot more death, innocent death, than bin Laden.”
And with that, it seems the bipartisan celebration over wiping out the most wanted terrorist in the world is officially over. Hope you enjoyed the short hiatus from political backbiting.
