Obama obambulates over Osama...

How to turn a victory into a defeat. "Obama shoots Osama, and then his own foot" (hoho). Andrew Bolt writes in his column in Melbourne's Herald Sun: "Obama's reasoning [about showing photos or not/showing body or not] seemed conflicted."
He claimed that releasing pictures of bin Laden with a hole in the head could inflame opinion against the US, and, besides, it so was also \'not who we are', which makes me suspect Obama was fretting less over enraged terrorists than enraged Leftists."
The BBC's coverage has been reasonable, I just wonder how they would have reacted if Bush was still in the saddle; and there should be no surprise as to how much scepticism there is: Paul lists some of the many conspiracy theories that began to circulate as soon as OBL's death was announced.

Thanks for the link. I was pleasantly surprised by both the BBC and SKY news coverage. To be honest I thought he had died sometime ago. Wonder if the war on terror will be brought to a close now.

I'll answer your comments a sentence at a time:

No worries.
Me too (although only seen a few bits of Sky online)
That's my favoured conspiracy theory!
No chance.
