Pursuant to the dictates of the Conspiracy Theorist Full Employment Act of 2008, members of the SEAL team that raided the Bin Laden compound were themselves killed
when a helicopter was brought down in Afghanistan.
As you know, many people asked many questions about that raid. Why did we originally read false reports that Bin Laden hid behind one of his wives? Why did the video feed allegedly cut out? What of the eyewitness accounts which say that Bin Laden, captured, was murdered at point-blank range? Why was the body buried at sea before a proper autopsy and objective identification?
Not to worry. We will soon have the the official Bin Laden Raid Comic Book
, written and illustrated by a some fine creative people from the military. The comic won't give the names of the team members for security reasons.
I wonder if we will learn the names now.
Perhaps this post should have adopted a more mournful tone concerning the loss of life in that chopper. But with the reality of the situation so questionable, how can we know whether or not we are being fed a "Wag the Dog" scenario? How do we know what really happened? What if we are being asked to mourn fictional characters?
Personally, I would rather not be a professional conspiracy theorist. But it seems to be the only growth sector in today's jobs market.
