Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads
posted at 8:00 am on April 29, 2012 by Allahpundit
It’s Bin Laden week for the Obama campaign so counterterror czar John Brennan will hit ABC and FOX this morning to point at the scoreboard and spike the football on his boss’s behalf. CBS looks like the better bet for OBL coverage, though. They’ve got David Ignatius, whose new column argues that the Islamist trend in the Arab Spring has given Bin Laden the last laugh, and Peter Bergen, who interviewed OBL four years before 9/11 and has a new book on the manhunt for him out on Tuesday. No football-spiking here, just big-picture context.
