RA, These type of covert operations have been going on for years. On the History Channel recently there was an episode pertaining to the killing of Admiral Yamamoto and the parallel between what happened this week with POS OBL and Yamamoto were surprisingly similar. Yamamoto planned and carried out the attack on Pearl Harbor and the US wanted desperately to take him out. The Intelligence people had broken the Japanese code (leading to a catastrophic defeat @ the Battle of Midway in June of 1942) and the US found out that Yamamoto would be flying to Bougainville and sent out an elite killer squadron of P-38's to take him out and they did. The difference here is that instead of trumpeting the fact that they killed Yamamoto they instead covered it up so the Japanese wouldn't know their code had been broken. Either way, both architects of dastardly sneak attacks on America were done in by US Intelligence and some bad assed Naval personnnel.

It's great and interesting and all that. And I certainly understand people's fascination with it.

I just think the gov't isn't under any obligation to fill in every gap and piecemeal the story like they're doing.

Public enemy #1 of the entire world getting snuffed out is obviously a huge story, as was the way that he was taken down, and the fascination surrounding this operation isn't going away any time soon.

I'm with RA on this one, he's dead..cool

but then you have people like Lugz who want to see every picture of the body that they have, fuck that i'm all set with pissing off those crazy bastards more than they already are. I don't live in east bumfuck NH, I'm all set with getting blown up on the subway because some nosey american wants too see pictures of a dead body.

I was ready to tackle a 12 year old middle eastern kid on the train yesterday when he pulled his iPod out of his backpack.

RA, after Callahan, you've been the biggest proponent of the picture being released. Now you're saying you don't need every detail..

Agreed 100%. But that doesn't mean the gov't doesn't have to answer shit.



As I contradict myself after posting in "Things I hate" thread. Obviously apples and oranges.

Where/when was I biggest proponent of that? Because I tweeted a fake pic (that was given to me by a news guy)? (unless you mean my "pics or it didn't happen" which I thought is an obvious board joke).

Either way, they're 2 different things. "Here's the pic, he's dead, that's all you're getting".

EDIT: And never lump me in w/him again. Or you'll get spit in your ice cream. :)

1.) :) I knew that would piss you off.

2.)
I can Google every dead celeb from last 50 years. But can't see a pic of the guy who killed 3000 people and changed history? Huh?

I wrote that after WH started backpedaling (i.e. after they said they were going to release it then changed their minds).

WH should have been definitive from the get-go instead of dicking around.
