@<a rel="nofollow" href="" title="member since April 8th, 2009" class="profilelink">longde His first question to her after asking why she didn't have faith in the government's version of events over Bin Laden was, "are you an anarchist? Are you a socialist?". She explained her position logically and sited examples as to why she might be right, yet by her questioning of official accounts, Cindy's political views are called in to question?

I for one think they did kill Bin Laden, since for him to show up alive later would be very embarrassing. But questioning that doesn't mean someone's character should be assassinated. These questions about her marriage break-up and how her cause has kept her from her children were hardly genuine inquiries after her health. Drew was impugning her abilities as a responsible parent and 'dutiful wife', just like they did with the Occupy mother.

Know a hit-job when you see one.

No need to apologize. If anything is absolutely true about the moment is that it was emotional for everyone and being the death of a person, it definitely made us all more sensitive than we might have been on an average day. I think in the end we all felt similarly that it is an odd thing to be so charged up over, but hopefully this will be yet another thing that will signal the start of stability in that region of the world.

Cheers mate!

In reply to this comment by BoneyD:
I wanted to apologise for the offence caused by my comment, it was unfair to judge people for their own reactions to his death when I still haven't figured out my own. This whole affair has not felt like the celebratory event it seems like it should be and I'm still trying to figure out why.

On the one hand I'm very pleased that he's finally dead and that they did it without destroying half of Pakistan. On the other, the idea that our answer to every problem nowadays is to strike, bomb, kill... it just makes me feel sick. This post someone made on Reddit puts to words better than I can how I feel, but I can recognise that there must be a huge measure of catharsis over Bin Laden's death for the nation that he struck.

Anyway, for what it's worth, I do again apologise.
