Why Does It Matter if bin Laden Was Armed or Not?

by Greg Pollowitz

Dear terrorists,

If every picture you release has you holding an AK-47, etc., the U.S. military has to assume that when they bust in on your secret lair, you have said AK-47 at your side.

My advice to you, going forward, is to sleep nude with your arms above your head in a pre-arranged surrender position to avoid any confusion.

Many thanks.

Dear media,

Unless you are ready to call for a full investigation into this particular SEAL’s action, under fire, in the most dangerous mission one can imagine, how about you stop asking Jay Carney questions on how bin Laden resisted the SEAL.

Again, many thanks.
