BILLINGSGATE POST - The Pentagon is currently deciding what disciplinary action will be taken for President Obama's gloating over his successful assassination of Osama bin Laden twelve months ago.
Just recently, the four Marines snipers who were pictured urinating on the bodies of Taliban insurgents were reassigned pending an "exhaustive investigation" by a three star general to probe what prompted their abhorrent behavior. In February, the burning of copies of the Koran triggered riots that left 30 dead and led to the death of six Americans. Just this past month, U.S. troops were condemned for posing with body parts of Afghan suicide bombers.
All of these actions were denounced by the President, Leon Panetta, Hillary Rodham Clinton, talking heads and anyone else who might gain personal or political stature by declaring themselves appalled by such behavior. A Pentagon spokesman said that the "imagery of this conduct has the potential to indict all in the minds of local Afghans, inciting violence and perhaps causing needless casualties."
Could the figurative "spiking of the ball in the end zone" by President Obama over the fallen body of Osama bin Laden incite his Al-Qaeda comrades to seek revenge and possibly cause more American casualties? Dr. Billingsgate trusts that a full investigation of this incident will determine if the Commander-in-Chief should receive the same treatment as the men he ridicules, and that appropriate disciplinary actions be taken.
