Proof Enough

by on May 6, 2011

There will always be some who disbelieve what the government says.  Therefore, there will always be conspiracies.  It’s too early to decide whether the “Birther” conspiracy can be put to rest, and it’s certainly too early to tell whether the conspiracy that Obama announced the death of Osama bin Laden for political points will go away.  It would be all too easy to quash these rumors by having the television media show proof of death.  NOT proof with gaping bullet holes, or pictures during the attack, or any other pictures that might be inflammatory.  There is simple proof.  Al Qaeda has already given it to us:

“We in Al-Qaeda organisation pledge to Allah the almighty and ask his help, support and steadfastness to continue on the path of jihad, the path walked upon by our leaders, and on top of them, Sheikh Osama,” SITE said, quoting the statement.

“We also stress that the blood of the mujahid Sheikh Osama bin Laden, may Allah have mercy upon him, weighs more to us and is more precious to us and to every Muslim than to be wasted in vain,” it said.

“We call upon our Muslim people in Pakistan, on whose land Sheikh Osama was killed, to rise up and revolt to cleanse this shame that has been attached to them by a clique of traitors and thieves who sold everything to the enemies.

“(We call upon them) to rise up strongly and in general to cleanse their country (Pakistan) from the filth of the Americans who spread corruption in it,” said the statement.

The statement came after US President Barack Obama said that American commandos killed bin Laden on Sunday in a covert operation in the Pakistani garrison town of Abbottabad.

Al Qaeda acknowledges that bin Laden is dead.  That should be proof enough.  If it’s not, I’m reminded of the Atlas Shrugged world in which no one is sure that they can know what reality is, because (after all), how can you be sure reality is real?

  1. What if Al-Qaeda simply does not exist and is only a creation of the United States?

    • that is a scary thought. It is unlikely, though. The US funded the original mujaheddin, of which bin Laden was a part, but they are real people with real aspirations separate from the United States.
