President Obama and his national security team were pictured this week as they focused their intent, collective gaze on something. We were told, in White House Version 1.0, that it was a live feed from Abbotabad, Pakistan, as US Navy SEAL “assaulters” killed Osama bin Laden.
But Central Intelligence Agency chief Leon Panetta now says there is no video of the Osama bin Laden raid. There was supposed to be, but the feed blacked out for 25 minutes, according to Panetta. So when a video and still images surface, as they eventually must, will they be trustworthy?
Seeing is believing, right? Or is it? Watch this clip, and then tell us you’ll believe any photographic “evidence.”
We are Americans, and we have the government we asked for. Let’s all agree to ask for better in 2012, shall we?
