If Sarah Palin Wants Bin Laden’s Death Photos Released It’s A Bad Idea
After President Obama stated in an upcoming 60 Minutes interview that he has decided not release the death photos of Osama Bin Laden, Sarah Palin blasted Obama via the security of her Tweet Bunker. If Palin thinks that releasing the photos was a good, then Obama definitely did the right thing by not making them public.
Obama told 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft why he decided not to release the Bin Laden photos,
You know, we discussed this internally. Keep in mind that we are absolutely certain this was him. We’ve done DNA sampling and testing. And so there is no doubt that we killed Osama bin Laden. It is important for us to make sure that very graphic photos of somebody who was shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to additional violence. As a propaganda tool. You know, that’s not who we are.
You know, we don’t trot out this stuff as trophies. You know, the fact of the matter is this was somebody who was deserving of the justice that he received. And I think– Americans and people around the world are glad that he’s gone. But we don’t need to spike the football. And I think that given the graphic nature of these photos, it would create some national security risk. And I’ve discussed this with Bob Gates and Hillary Clinton and my intelligence teams and they all agree.”
This led Sarah Palin to send out a tweet that if Obama did not release the photos he was soft and failing the Bin Laden mission:
Okay, we all know how this game is played. Sarah Palin is going to immediately take the opposite position on any Obama decision. If Obama has decided that it might rain today, Palin will take to her Twitter account and criticize the President for leading America down the path of overcast, when everyone knows that it is going to be sunny.
Sarah Palin still views herself as the foremost Republican critic of Obama. Remember, this is the same person who thinks that Obama stole the election from her 2008. In her mind, the current occupant of the Oval Office has usurped her throne. Sarah appears to have blocked out that John McCain was the Republican presidential nominee in 2008, not her.
If Obama has any doubts about his decision not to release the Bin Laden death photos, they should have been erased the second Palin tweeted her criticism.
Since Sarah Palin was on the 2008 Republican ticket, she has become the political Wrong Way Jones. Every single major decision that she has made has been the wrong one. Palin decided to make a boatload of money, and she thought that she could remain the Republican frontrunner by quitting her job as governor of Alaska. Wrong. Sarah Palin thought it would be a great idea to pick fights with talk show hosts like David Letterman, and attack respected authors like Joe McGinniss. Wrong and Wrong.
Palin thought that people would still take her seriously after she did a reality TV show, and that if her daughter won Dancing With The Stars America would again love her. Wrong. Sarah Palin thought that she could take on Karl Rove and there wouldn’t be any consequences. Palin thought that after the Gabrielle Giffords shooting, the Blood Libel video was a great idea. Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong.
If Sarah Palin thinks anything is a good idea, then it is a ridiculously terrible idea that may possibly involve jeopardizing national security. 2/3 of America immediate rejects anything Palin says, and with good reason. The only person in the Republican Party with worse political instincts than Sarah Palin is Donald Trump.
Anything that Wrong Way Palin proposes is a bad idea for America.
Congratulations, President Obama. According to our Palin Decision Making Index, not releasing the Bin Laden photos grades out to be another excellent decision.
