Built on Facts

Thoughts on Osama

Some initial thoughts, on a beautiful day in a palpably better world without Osama:

1. I’m astonished he was still alive. I was certain he died from an anonymous bomb or health problems sometime between ’01 and ’04. He hadn’t released any tapes or videos with unambiguous confirmation of when they were recorded, and the general consensus was that al-Qaida was now a fully decentralized organization that had adjusted to operating without him. The fact that he wasn’t dead meant that, unlike his suicide bombers and guerrillas, he had basically abandoned his own cause to live in (very) quiet luxury. So add “coward” to “monster”.

2. Weekly World News (a now-defunct humor tabloid that reported entirely made-up news) used to report that Osama was alive and hiding in Florida. They weren’t that far off. Hiding in a mansion next to a military base in a major city near the capital does not give me a very high opinion of Pakistan.

3. Frankly three wars is three more than we should be in, but I wouldn’t be too upset if we added a fourth to decapitate the Pakistani government if it turns out they were complicit in hiding Osama. Of course cooler heads will prevail and it won’t happen, but that’s my emotional instinct.

4. Most of the reaction among my friends on Facebook has been celebratory. There was only a little political sniping (“Obama did what Bush couldn’t” vs. “Bush should get the credit for everything that lead up to it”). In any event that argument is pretty silly, akin to crediting or blaming the Secretary of Transportation about the pothole on your commute to work. Both presidents deserve their share of credit, and the great majority of the credit goes to the anonymous intelligence analysts, spies, and special forces who did the hard work.

5. On almost every other issue I’m an Obama critic, but he gets top marks from me on this one. Top marks plus extra credit, because he ordered the dangerous but much more effective ground assault rather than a bombing run.

6. In his speech – which was almost surreal to watch – Obama said that he ordered the mission with the goal of the death or capture of Osama bin Laden. I wonder if the actual order was to kill him, full stop. One of the serious weaknesses of the US counterterrorism effort is a nearly complete lack of a clear and uncontroversial way to try suspected terrorists in court. There is almost no possible way a trial of Osama could have been anything but a debacle, and dead men need no trial.

7. Not sure I like the burial at sea though. Obviously you don’t want him stuffed at the Smithsonian, but you’d like to have some independent forensic analysis by countries whose citizens are not likely to immediately believe the White House.

8. Of course Osama’s death won’t make much difference in regard to preventing future terrorism. But who cares?

9. Nobody who was part of the raid will ever have to buy a beer again.

10. “Never forget” eventually became something of a punchline, but somewhere deep within even the jaded and partisan souls of modern Americans, we never did forget.

    I am mostly just hoping the “celebrating” doesn’t incite any more trouble from his followers..if he has any left.

    I’m not surprised he was alive, tough it would not have shocked me to find he had died in some way over the last year or so. I agree more or less with your comments about blame/not blame and credit/not credit but I’ll add what everyone I know in the special forces or intelligence community thinks: Tora Bora in particular was a cluster fuck and should simply not have happened.

    They could have avoided the 24 hour burial rule problem by bringing him to a special mortuary in a submarine in the Arctic Sea. Or by ignoring the rule. Seriously. A religion should not be allowed to have a rule that says “possible evidence of wrong doing must be destroyed by nightfall.” Its absurd.

    The people who were part of the raid probably can’t say they were there at this point. Operational details, etc. So, Navy Seals in general do not have to buy beers again.

    They only said his “body” was buried at sea… I suspect his head is on ice somewhere else (with further DNA samples)!

    Everything is relative — as far as being ‘an Obama critic on almost every other issue’ I hope by that you surely don’t mean that you’d prefer to be dealing with a McCain/Palin White House right now… puhhh-leeeze!

    Matt:
    Your suggestion at 3. is counterproductive. Most likely the Pakistan military’s intelligence people were aware of Osama’s presence, but the civil government has only a bit of knowledge and very little control of the military. Decapitating the government would put the military in charge–not a good thing for us and perhaps fatal for parts of India and Pakistan.

    My first thought on the burial at sea front is that it will prevent any martyrdom shrine centred on his burial. Of course, his supporters may try to drum up interest in other sites or relics, but the really obvious one is gone.

    The burial at sea does acheive one useful thing: it stops wherever he’s buried from becoming a shrine to his followers.

    On the other hand, burying him somewhere big and obvious, then interrogating anyone who lays a wreath also would have had a certain intel value.

    “I wouldn’t be too upset if we added a fourth to decapitate the Pakistani government if it turns out they were complicit in hiding Osama.”

    It would be …. interesting to see the USA go to war with a country that really does have nukes.

    I too thought that Bin Laden was probably dead. However
    I also thought that if he was alive he was almost certainly
    in Pakistan protected by the Pakistani Security Forces.
    Al Quaida is basically a branch of the Pakistani Security
    Forces.
    The official Pakistani “government” is basically meaningless. Decapitating it would presumably accelerate Pakistan’s descent into chaos.
    Becoming involved in the conflicts of the Middle East was
    one of the greatest mistakes this country ever made. The
    past costs have been enormous. The future costs will be even greater.

    Expanding on the points Jake and Paul made above: It has been clear for several years that the Pakistani military in general, and the intelligence service in particular, is riddled with Taliban sympathizers. The civilian government can’t do much about that if it wishes to remain a government. The anti-Taliban faction of the military isn’t powerful enough to eliminate the pro-Taliban faction.

    Also remember, Pakistan has nukes, which we don’t want to fall into unknown (but possibly militant) hands. Pakistan’s traditional enemy (pretty much from the day it became an independent country) is India, which also has nukes. The world really doesn’t want another Pakistan-India shooting war (nuclear winter could result if both sides go all in), so anything that increases the probability of such a war is a Bad Thing. Removing the civilian government would be one way to increase the probability of such a war.

    @Paul: The last 20 years or so of American foreign policy has been an exercise in providing unpleasant foreign governments with the strongest possible perverse incentives to acquire nuclear weapons. Unfortunately nukes are not all that hard to make in the grand scheme of things, so I expect proliferation to… proliferate.

    “but I wouldn’t be too upset if we added a fourth to decapitate the Pakistani government if it turns out they were complicit in hiding Osama”

    I hope you’re kidding.

    Can we decapitate the US Government for the aid given to the IRA and for holding on to terrorists wanted by the UK government?

    Pakistan may not have known he was there. Given the US army in Afghanistan having holed the Taliban leaders in a cliff bluff lost them. Why is the largest military IN THE WORLD (even if you add up the next five to one uber army) able to miss things but Pakistan not?

    “Al Quaida is basically a branch of the Pakistani Security”

    Funny. Their biggest funder was Saudi Arabia and the Bin Laden family were VERY close friends of the USA (Shrub even kissed on on the lips) and are somewhat important in Saudi Arabia…!

    And the Saudi army is much bigger than Pakistan’s. They also train terrorists.

    No one.

    I don’t trust any government in the Middle East. In the case of Osama Bin Laden obviously it was the Pakistanis who
    were sheltering him not the Saudi’s.

Pakistan geleneksel düşmanı (hemen hemen bağımsız bir ülke oldu gününden) de nükleer silahları olan Hindistan, bir. Dünya gerçekten bir Bad Thing böyle bir savaş olasılığı artar böylece bir şey başka bir Pakistan-Hindistan savaşı çekim (her iki tarafın tüm giderseniz nükleer kış neden olabilir) istemiyor. sivil hükümet çıkarma gibi bir savaş olasılığını artırmak için bir yol olacaktır.

    “In the case of Osama Bin Laden obviously it was the Pakistanis who were sheltering him not the Saudi’s.”

    However, Saudi Arabia were the biggest single bank-rollers. The ruling family is his and all the bombers for 11/9 were Saudi (IIRC, or at least all but one or two).

    So they finally got him. Let’s review then:

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2002/nov/24/theobserver

    “… Why are we fighting and opposing you? The answer is very simple:

    (1) Because you attacked us and continue to attack us.

    a) You attacked us in Palestine…
    b) You attacked us in Somalia…
    c) Under your supervision, consent and orders, the governments of our countries which act as your agents, attack us on a daily basis…
    d) You steal our wealth and oil at paltry prices because of you international influence and military threats…
    e) Your forces occupy our countries; you spread your military bases throughout them; you corrupt our lands, and you besiege our sanctities…
    f) You have starved the Muslims of Iraq, where children die every day. It is a wonder that more than 1.5 million Iraqi children have died as a result of your sanctions, and you did not show concern…
    g) You have supported the Jews in their idea that Jerusalem is their eternal capital…

    2) These tragedies and calamities are only a few examples of your oppression and aggression against us. It is commanded by our religion and intellect that the oppressed have a right to return the aggression…

    3) You may then dispute that all the above does not justify aggression against civilians, for crimes they did not commit and offenses in which they did not partake:

    (a) This argument contradicts your continuous repetition that America is the land of freedom, and its leaders in this world. Therefore, the American people are the ones who choose their government by way of their own free will; a
    choice which stems from their agreement to its policies. Thus the American people have chosen…

    b) The American people are the ones who pay the taxes which fund the planes that bomb us in Afghanistan, the tanks that strike and destroy our homes in Palestine, the armies which occupy our lands in the Arabian Gulf, and the fleets which ensure the blockade of Iraq…

    … This is why the American people cannot be not innocent of all the crimes committed…”

    So a bedouin rebel was a mastermind that involved hijacking and crashing 2 planes into WTC? More like a fairytale, americans should stop being so gullible and should start thinking for themselves. If the rest of the world doesn’t believe it then why should americans?

    “KRISHNAMURTI’S FORMULA” AWARENESS WAR ON POVERTY

    Poverty and hunger are the two faces of the same coin. What is poverty? Poverty is the lack of income / resource to meet the minimum requirements like food, clothing and other common needs of the family members. Poverty is the prime reason for Hunger. Hunger is lack of minimum notorious food at least twice a day to the family members. Hunger is nothing but Hell on the earth. POVERTY is the abbreviation of P – Pity, O – Oppression, V – Violence, E – Extortion, R – Regret, T – Torture, and Y – Yell. HUNGER is abbreviation of H – Humility U – Unbearable, N – Nasty, G – Gruesome, E – Extortion, and R – Rage.

    Hunger is the ancient enemy of the humanity. It is the most hidden self secret of the mankind as its revelation will bring them shame and humiliation. 50,000 people die every day due to poverty related causes. More than 854 million go to bed hungry every day. 1 billion can’t read and write. 1.2 billion People have no access to safe drinking water. Almost half the world lives with less than $2 a day. 35% of world’s poor live in India. 40% of the world’s underweight children under the age of 5 live in India. As the food crisis is being compounded by ever multiplying population, extreme weather conditions, ecological imbalance and reduction in land for agriculture due to occupation of lands under various developmental activities. Every year4 million people join the world’s shameful club of poverty. Hunger related disease has got numerous disadvantages such as lack of self esteem, fear, lack of competence, confidence, inferiority complex, laziness, lethargy, negligence, negligence of hygiene, ill health, poor body immunity, lack of creativity, missing opportunities, social status, illiteracy and respect.
    There are numerous International and National NGO’s are working to eradicate the largest enemy of the world HUNGER.
