Rosie O’Donnell: We didn’t give Bin Laden due process

posted at 5:54 pm on May 9, 2011 by Allahpundit

Via Radio Equalizer, what’s the biggest news from this clip? That Rosie, like many delicate European flowers of discerning temperaments, thinks Osama deserved better than he got? Or that Rosie now apparently accepts the official narrative of 9/11? Why, it seems like just yesterday that she was musing — on national television — that “I do believe that it’s the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel. I do believe that it defies physics that World Trade Center tower 7—building 7, which collapsed in on itself—it is impossible for a building to fall the way it fell without explosives being involved. World Trade Center 7. World Trade [Center] 1 and 2 got hit by planes—7, miraculously, the first time in history, steel was melted by fire. It is physically impossible.” Maybe she’s compromised since then and concluded that Bin Laden was an accomplice to the real masterminds.

Eighty percent of Americans say it was right to kill him instead of capture him versus 11 percent who think it was wrong. The crosstabs for that question will be out tonight, but I wonder how many in the majority approve of the killing because (1) Bin Laden deserved to die, (2) Bin Laden posed a physical threat to the SEALs and therefore had to be taken down, or (3) Bin Laden’s capture and trial would have been an endless legal and media clusterfark, with no standard of due process and imprisonment sufficiently high for the self-styled intelligentsia whom Brendan O’Neill tore apart here. Like Jeff Greenfield, I assume it was that third consideration that weighed most heavily on Obama. He knew that most of his base would either happily or unhappily tolerate Bin Laden being shot in the face — ever since he banned enhanced interrogation, they’ve given him carte blanche to go the full Bush on counterterrorism — but that 11 percent would have been a headache for the rest of his presidency. Bin Laden emphatically had it coming, and the SEALs understandably feared that either he or the compound was wired with explosives, and they had already recovered scores of hard drives and thumb drives for intelligence purposes, so they shot him on sight. Problem solved, zero American casualties. Everyone’s happy — almost.

After you listen to the clip, enjoy Hitchens laying into Noam Chomsky for his own quasi-Truther lament over the weekend about Bin Laden’s killing. Apparently, despite endless evidence of Al Qaeda’s responsibility for the attacks (Hitchens cites just a few key pieces), the great dissident remains agnostic about whodunnit. Anyone think a trial and conviction, whether here or in the Hague, would have convinced him? Me neither.

He was dealt with under Field Regulation 303.

He got his due. It’s just that the process a few years. These guys that think he needed to be captured are nuts.

Brat4life on May 9, 2011 at 6:00 PM

Was there ever a time when she wasn’t totally insane?

50sGuy on May 9, 2011 at 6:00 PM

Sure he got due process…… The SEAL aimed and pulled the trigger.

ThePrez on May 9, 2011 at 6:01 PM


We didn’t give Bin Laden due process

But he did get the process he was due …

Door kicked in – check

Shot in the chest – check

Shot in the head – check

Yup, he got the process he was due.

Tony737 on May 9, 2011 at 6:01 PM

I think he should have undergone trial-
by fire, from a flamethrower loaded with jet fuel, to see how some of the people felt on 9/11.

michaelo on May 9, 2011 at 6:01 PM

I had no idea that cheesy nachos and double baked taters could contribute to early-onset dementia. Rosie is paying the nutritional fiddler now, isn’t she.

Noam Chomsky and great thinker in the same sentence is an oxy-moron. As to Rosy you can’t fix stupid.

I don’t listen to people who spout the “Fire can’t melt Steel!!1!!eleventy!!!” Idiocy.

portlandon on May 9, 2011 at 6:02 PM

That’s why we sent the SEALS not the NYPD.

If we’d caught him with his pants down, these idiots would have wanted us to wait for him to wipe, flush, and wash before shooting him.

Anyone who cites the Nuremberg trials as ‘due process’ has forgotten the Germany had surrendered when the Nazis were given ‘due process’.

Wander on May 9, 2011 at 6:02 PM

Yeah. Rosie is here to tell us that Barack Obama is a war criminal. Who am I to argue.

J_Crater on May 9, 2011 at 6:03 PM

Isn’t this the same person who told people just after columbine to go ahead and turn in their guns?

What kind of ‘Due Process’ was afforded to OBL’s victim on 9/11?

“I do believe that it’s the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel …”

Poor Rosie, making a desperate attempt to become relevant again after all these years. Sad. Maybe she and Moore could do a documentary about OBLs demise.

scalleywag on May 9, 2011 at 6:06 PM

At least some of these nutters are being somewhat consistent.

CWforFreedom on May 9, 2011 at 6:06 PM

Christopher Hitchen’s takedown of Chomsky would be easier to accept if he, Hitchens, wasn’t a promoter of much of the same nonsense for several decades.

After all, the leading proponent of the “October Surprise” theory, i.e., candidate Reagan made a secret deal with Iran to hold the hostages until he was elected in return for arms, was Hitchens. And from what I’ve read, he still believes it.

SteveMG on May 9, 2011 at 6:07 PM

joejm65 on May 9, 2011 at 6:08 PM

Y’know Obama’s really not a fool.

I keep hoping that somewhere in all this, it might just dawn on him that all the people on the Left who really used to love him are not only abandoning him now over this, but pretty much making idiots of themselves in the process.

You’d think that somewhere along the line somewhere in the dark of night, he might just stop to wonder: Gee, if they’re all so wrong about this, is there a chance they might be wrong about all the other crap they/I peddle?

bin Laden didn’t give us due process either. If we were to have done to him what he did to us, the six women and twenty-three children we spared would be dead, and we would be dancing in the streets just as the Muslims did on 9/11.

After you listen to the clip, enjoy Hitchens laying into Noam Chomsky for his own quasi-Truther lament over the weekend about Bin Laden’s killing.

Nice to see Hitch still has some moments of brilliance:

As far as I know, only leading British “Truther” David Shayler, a former intelligence agent who also announced his own divinity, has denied that the events of Sept. 11, 2001, took place at all. (It was apparently by means of a hologram that the widespread delusion was created on television.) In his recent article for Guernica magazine, however, professor Noam Chomsky decides to leave that central question open. We have no more reason to credit Osama Bin Laden’s claim of responsibility, he states, than we would have to believe Chomsky’s own claim to have won the Boston Marathon.

Chumpsky would never make it out of Hopkinton.

Del Dolemonte on May 9, 2011 at 6:16 PM

Nutsy call, there, Rosie!

Christien on May 9, 2011 at 6:16 PM

Bin Laden publically confessed therefore no trial was necessary. Guilt was established.

which Brendan O’Neill tore apart here.

Tore apart? He accused the Archbishop of Canterbury of being motivated by secret cowardice (which is the standard anti-European cliché) while completely failing to address the objection about killing an unarmed man – even a really evil one.

Why did the Obama admin. begin by floating the story that Osama put up armed resistance? Obviously they know it looks bad to burst into someone’s room and shoot them – no matter who it is.

Here is how O’Neill he ends his article:

But if you want to tell me that bin Laden was treated badly, and that the allegedly morally unhinged reaction to his death might invite more terror upon us, then I have only one thing to say: ‘F*ck bin Laden.’

Real mature. This guy should ensconse himself in his basement, watch his Navy Seals dvd (the one with Charlie Sheen) and leave the opinion journalism to grown-ups.

aengus on May 9, 2011 at 6:21 PM

Yeah, but Rosie O’Donnell wouldn’t give due process to two large pulled pork sandwiches, a 1 quart side of potato salad and a 64 ounce Coke.

Mason on May 9, 2011 at 6:22 PM

That Rosie, like many delicate European flowers of discerning temperaments, thinks Osama deserved better than he got?

One in the chest, one in the head. Probably took less than a second.

What’s better than that?

Wrong Rosie, he was given very long overdue process!

And that was an epic smackdown by Hitch.

Someone asked in the headlines how anyone can have no opinion on the killing of Bin Laden. I repeat: ask Mitch Daniels.

cmsinaz on May 9, 2011 at 6:31 PM

This shallow, ignorant woman has no earthly idea what the SEALS faced going on this mission. Who knows what could have had rigged up in that compound. The very last thing they had time to think about was OBLs safety or due process.

The man was a maniacal killer who claimed responsibility for the atrocities at Ground Zero, the Pentagon, and PA. Had he been able to kill more, there’s no doubt he would have. He bragged about 9/11. He jumped up and down and celebrated the death of 3000 Americans. He vowed to kill more over and over and over again in tape after tape after tape. He gave up his due process when he confessed his involvement.

Thanks to our brave military he’ll never kill again. And shame on a woman who thinks he didn’t get his due process. Despicable blathering idiot.

scalleywag on May 9, 2011 at 6:32 PM

I’m a Threefer: complete clusterfark if he was captured.

And…

And god did not give Rosie a brain.

Sure He did. He got from Ab Normal, who isn’t using it any more…

karl9000 on May 9, 2011 at 6:33 PM

He was dealt with under Field Regulation 303.

sharrukin on May 9, 2011 at 5:59 PM

I believe that is now Field Regulation 223.

jdkchem on May 9, 2011 at 6:37 PM

And furthermore, OBL was responsible for changing the way we have to live in America, being ever more diligent, giving up our freedoms and rights to privacy and searches and seizures without cause, having our grandmothers and babies fondled before they travel, having our phones subject to being tapped on a whim…all because another terrorist may be in our midst. Where’s OUR due process? F@#$ Bin Ladens. This is our country, not his.

scalleywag on May 9, 2011 at 6:38 PM

NewsFlash to Rosie,aka,”Fire Can’t Melt Steel Extraordinaire”,

somewhere along the line(the Progressive International Law
Rules types,and it is morally repugnant to assassinate,er ca
ll it what Liberals describe it….Murder)the order was to
capture,then,just kill him,plus,

Obama put up a fire fight,then there was no fire fight,then,
its revealed that OBL in his PJ’s,was double tapped!!

And this comes from,an Anti-War,gonna close GITMO,end the
Wars!!!!

Personally,I don`t give a rats *ss if OBL was lined up against the wall,and ‘Valentine Day Massacred’!!!!!!!

The Obama Team,has conflicting stories!

Obama supporters,now know,OBL was EXECUTED,yes,correct,
THEIR PRESIDENT DID THIS,with,Rosies,NO DUE PROCESS!!!

Rosie,welcome to the REAL WORLD!!!

canopfor on May 9, 2011 at 6:39 PM

He plead guilty first, President Bush ordered him dead or captured, Seals carried out the punishment.

Sounds like due process to me. Just think of it as OBL being on death row for 10 years.

tommer74 on May 9, 2011 at 6:39 PM

Maybe Rosie should hang upside down and let her a%s do the talking…

Seven Percent Solution on May 9, 2011 at 6:42 PM

I believe that is now Field Regulation 223.

jdkchem on May 9, 2011 at 6:37 PM

I believe you are correct. In Australian service it was Rule 303 at the time. Still, it makes the point that this idiot legalistic approach to organized mass killing (AKA war) will only cripple our own efforts and give every advantage to the enemy.

sharrukin on May 9, 2011 at 6:42 PM

Eighty percent of Americans say it was right to kill him instead of capture him

That number will be much lower in a few months, after the high wears off. Obama killed off bin Laden for multiple self-serving political reasons. The trial would have exposed relationships/alliances with Democrats, Arab leaders and other mutual friends. Bin Laden supplied the foot soldiers for all of the Democrat wars of the last 35 years.

Schadenfreude on May 9, 2011 at 6:48 PM

I hate to say it, but Rosie, like Chomsky and Moore are at the very least, true to their ideology. Cowards like Baher, Maher, and most other lefties including the whole of NBC, MSNBC and the print legacy media are astoundingly hypocritical when it comes to this issue.

The aforementioned went ballistic with “torture” and EIT, rendition, wiretaps, etc. and now that Obama has retained ALL of that and more, assassinated UBL, (Thank God) and has OK’d the killing of a US CITIZEN, Anwar al-Awlaki, they say “due process” “due schmasess”!

Hey, I’m cool with it. I say kill em’ all and don’t bother with spending our resources with holding them somewhere after capture and all the complications of confining them.

But the left is incredibly “war mongering” lately, huh?

Opposite Day on May 9, 2011 at 6:50 PM

As predicted.

Obama knew this was coming b/c he’d be right behind her if he was in the Senate and a Republican was president.

That’s why the body was dumped in the ocean.

That’s why the video is incomplete.

That’s why photos will be slow in coming.

That’s why the story was fuzzy.

He’s going to give the Leftist loons as little as possible to obsess over.

This may be one of the few times I agree with and salute the man.

Obama to Use Post-Bin Laden Political Capital on Immigration Reform
Sunday May 8, 2011
*********************
***********************

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Now that the President Obama’s political capital is at its highest point since his 2009 inauguration, expect immigration reform to be a pressing priority of the Obama administration.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Post-bin Laden and post-birth certificate silliness, President Obama is riding high in public favor. Very high, and likely never higher with conservatives, the voter group most adamantly opposed to loosening U.S. immigration laws.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

To win reelection in 2012, President Obama must energize and draw a hefty majority of votes from two particular demographic groups: youth, especially college students, and Latinos.

ladyingray on May 9, 2011 at 7:44 PM

Due process is not a consideration, because this was not a law enforcement event. This was a tiny battle in a larger war. In warfighting, when you have pinpointed a high-value enemy target, one who is both an enemy combatant and a war criminal, you kill on sight if possible.

Now, if Rosie wants to play the what-if game and say “What if Osama didn’t really do all the things he took credit for, what if he was innocent?”, I have several ways to answer that, but the simplest is, if you don’t want an American bullet in the head, don’t claim credit for 3,000+ murders.

scalleywag, don’t forget the U.S.S Cole; Khobar Towers; Dar el Salaam/Tanzania/Nairobi Embassies; 1993 Trade Center. And those comprise an incomplete listing of OBL’s anti-American events, ignoring his attacks on other nations.

Let’s say Lieutenant William Calley spots bin Laden entering a cave and orders a platoon to go in after him. The platoon leader radios the Lieutenant and informs him that they have bin Laden in custody. Should Calley order the troops to execute the subdued bin Laden or should he order them to bring bin Laden back alive as a prisoner?

He’s not a US citizen he gets no due process, he gets the 38 cent solution, right between the eyes. Although I prefer that we scoot him off to a black ops site and spend years letting our spooky chemists dig sh!t out of the deepest recesses of his brain.

Alden Pyle on May 9, 2011 at 9:41 PM

The lawyers at King and Spaulding, with free time on their hands and experience in terrorist defense, would in all probability have gladly defended the Binster at no charge. The great publicity with the in-crowd in Hollywood and at main Justice would be recompense enough.

Rosie O’Donnell: We didn’t give Bin Laden due process

Sure we did, OBL had the time and the means to defend himself…

Gohawgs on May 9, 2011 at 10:14 PM

“I do believe that it’s the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel.

Wrong Tokyo-Rosie…the truth of the matter is that’s how steel is made, by heating ore until it melts and can be casted into steel parts!!

In addition, the steel support beams in the WTC building didn’t need to melt completely, they just needed to be weakened sufficiently enough to fail!

I do believe that it defies physics that World Trade Center tower 7—building 7, which collapsed in on itself—it is impossible for a building to fall the way it fell without explosives being involved.

Wrong again Tokyo-Rosie! Building 7 was so badly damaged (almost one third of the building had been cut out of it) and fuel tanks in the building had ignited and burned furiously for hours, then the main support structure of the building gave way and gravity took it down, not explosives!

Rosie O’Donnell: We didn’t give Bin Laden due process

Once again, wrong as usual Tokyo-Rosie! First of all O-scuma isn’t a US citizen and does not have a right to due process. Secondly, Oscuma doesn’t fight wearing the uniform of a recognized sovereign nation and is therefore not afforded protection under the Geneva Convention (GC) and according to the GC can be shot on sight. Thirdly, Oscuma declared war on the US several times, once verbally in 1998, when he attacked the USS Cole, and then again on 9-11!

The above more then proves Oscuma had no right to due process, he was at war with us, we were at war with him, therefore the only right he had was to die as he did!

Bottom line is Tokyo-Rosie has been and always will be wrong on all accounts!

Hey Rosie, being fat and stupid is no way to go through life…now don’t go away mad Rosie…JUST GO AWAY AND STFU ALREADY!!

Actually Bush bribed the Seals not to take Bin Laden alive-or else he would have implicated both Bush and Cheney in the World Trade Center attacks, which Rosie “correctly guessed” was an “inside job.”

So Bush can be blamed for both the World trade slaughter and no due process for his co-conspirator. My God the man’s worse than the Godfather! Thanks for your insight, Rosie!!!!

Should Calley order the troops to execute the subdued bin Laden or should he order them to bring bin Laden back alive as a prisoner?

Well I’m certain most in combat wished it was as easy as you portray it. The brave Seals that went in had to make split second decisions and there were many variables, like did Oscuma have a bomb belt, was he or his wife booby-trapped, was the room booby trapped, etc, etc.

In addition, it’s naive to believe that when confronting a mad man that killed thousands in cold blood would not resist to the point where you felt safe enough to take him into custody. Past history has shown that most mad men like Oscuma do not go down without a fight and usually go down in a hail of bullets. With that fact in the forefront of my mind had I been one of the Seals had Oscuma so much as FLINCHED I would have double-tapped his azz too!

Sure we did, OBL had the time and the means to defend himself…BUT HE WAS TOO MUCH OF A COWARDLY TURD TO DO ANYTHING BUT BLEED AND DIE!!

It’s a hypothetical, it can be as easy or hard as you draw it up. I’d just like to find the scenario where executing bin Laden would be a war crime. Is the Jack Ruby solution always the best solution?

Rosie O’Donnell: We didn’t give Bin Laden due process

When you declare war on the U.S., murder civilians, have no army, no uniforms, and no country, a bullet in the head IS “due process.” You have no “rights” whatsoever, even under nebulous “International Law”!

The only other suitable punishment for OBL or his followers would be lifetime confinement in a facility where they are doomed to listen to Rosie O’Donnell 24/7/365.

Why don’t you give that double burger, fries and ice cream due process?
