    A picture of a child allowed to sit with the adults, a real growing up time for him. Look at the expression on his face and then on daddy Joe's face. The little boy is understandably in shock.

    "The Fog of Fog
    by Michelle Malkin
    Creators Syndicate

    The official White House account of Osama bin Laden’s demise has seen more slapdash cosmetic surgery over the past week than your average “Real Housewives” reality-show star. President Obama’s allies attribute the bungled “narrative” (their word, not mine) to the “Fog of War.” But each passing day — and each new set of hapless revisions — shows that what really ails the administration is the Fog of Fog.

    Errors happen. Miscommunications happen. Confusing the name of which of bin Laden’s myriad sons died (Hamza, not Khalid), for example, is no biggie.

    But the hourly revamping of key details of Sunday’s raid suggests something far beyond the usual realm of situational uncertainty that accompanies any military operation. The Navy SEALs did their job spectacularly. The civilians tasked with letting the world know about the mission, however, have performed like amateur dinner theater actors in a tragi-comic production of “Rashomon-meets-The Blind Men and the Elephant-meets-Keystone Kops.”

    Incapable of straightforward answers, Team Obama’s clarity-challenged civilians have led nauseated news-watchers through more twists and turns than San Francisco’s Lombard Street.

    Take your Dramamine, and let’s review.

    Take One: Bin Laden died in a bloody firefight.

    On Sunday night, Obama dramatically told the world that “after a firefight,” our brave men in uniform “killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body.”

    Embellishing the story the next morning, White House deputy national security adviser John Brennan said at his briefing that bin Laden “was engaged in a firefight with those that entered the area of the house he was in. … And whether or not he got off any rounds, I quite frankly don’t know. … It was a firefight. He, therefore, was killed in that firefight.”

    Take Two: Bin Laden did not engage in a firefight.

    The day after Brennan disclosed such vivid details, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney walked them back Michael Jackson-style. Bin Laden, he said in version 2.0, “was not armed.” Brennan had clearly implied that bin Laden “resisted” with arms. Carney amended the narrative by insisting that “resistance does not require a firearm.” How exactly bin Laden resisted, Carney would not say.

    It’s been all downhill, uphill, K-turns and 180s ever since. Fasten your seatbelts:

    Take Three: Bin Laden’s wife died after her feckless husband used her as a human shield.

    Take Four: Bin Laden’s wife did not die, wasn’t used as a human shield and was only shot in the leg. Someone else’s wife was killed, somewhere else in the house.

    Take Five: A transport helicopter experienced “mechanical failure” and was forced to make a hard landing during the mission.

    Take Six: A top-secret helicopter clipped the bin Laden compound wall, crashed and was purposely exploded after the mission to prevent our enemies from learning more about it.

    Take Seven: The bin Laden photos would be released to the world as proof positive of his death.

    Take Eight: The bin Laden photos would not be released to the world because no one needs proof and it’s more important to avoid offending peaceful Muslims who supposedly don’t embrace bin Laden as a “true” Muslim in the first place.

    Take Nine: Bin Laden’s compound was a lavish mansion.

    Take Ten: Bin Laden’s compound was a glorified pigsty.

    Take Eleven: Bin Laden’s compound had absolutely no television, phone or computer access.

    Take Twelve: Bin Laden’s compound was stocked with hard drives, thumb drives, DVDs and computers galore.

    Take Thirteen: Er, remember that statement about bin Laden being armed? And then not armed? Well, the new version is that he had an AK-47 “nearby.”

    Take Fourteen: A gung-ho Obama spearheaded the “gutsy” mission.

    Take Fifteen: A reluctant Obama dithered for 16 hours before being persuaded by CIA Director Leon Panetta.

    Take Sixteen: Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and close advisers watched the raid unfold in real time — “minute by minute,” according to Carney — and a gripping insider photo was posted immediately by the White House on the Flickr picture-sharing website for all to see.

    Take Seventeen: Er, they weren’t really watching real-time video “minute by minute” because there was at least nearly a half-hour that they “didn’t know just exactly what was going on,” Panetta clarified. Or rather, un-clarified.

    Take Eighteen: Stalwart Obama’s order was to kill, not capture, bin Laden.

    Take Nineteen: Sensitive Obama’s order was to kill (SET ITAL) or (END ITAL) capture — and that’s why the SEAL team gave him a chance to surrender, upon which he resisted with arms, or actually didn’t resist with arms, but sort of resisted without arms, except there was an AK-47 nearby, sort of, or maybe not, thus making it possible to assert that while Decisive Obama did tell the SEALs to kill bin Laden and should claim all credit for doing so, Progressive Obama can also be absolved by bleeding hearts because of the painstakingly concocted post facto possibility that bin Laden somehow threatened our military — telepathically or something — before being taken out.

    Take Twenty: “We’ve been as forthcoming with facts as we can be,” said an irritated Carney on Wednesday.

    And they wonder why Americans of all political stripes think they’re blowing smoke."

    Personally, I don't care if Osmam bin Laden was armed, unarmed, sleeping or taking a dump when they opened up on him, I'm glad that SOB is dead (if he is dead) and fed to the fishes ... I think the prudent thing to do would of been to show the American Public what they have been waiting almost 10 years to see and thats the lifeless body of the Master Mind of the murders that took place on 9/11 at the Twin Towers and in a field in Pennsylvania ... Live by the sword and expect to die by the sword, be that as it may ...

    I think the Navy Seals did just what had to be done with perfect timing and justifyably used deadly force ... I also feel that anyone who was in the compound that caught a bullet should die from it just like Osama bin Laden did ... They knew who he was and what he stood for, now there will probably be another to take his seat at the same table to carry on their mission ... Osama bin Laden was a wanted man who killed people he didn't know or care about in anyway, shape, or form ... I do not believe we can kill enough of them to even the score after having what happened on 9/11 burned into my mind as I watched it unfold on the television ... I for one will never forget, and paybacks as they say are a bitch ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    "Adults"? That's pretty funny.

    If "adults" had been in charge, like back in the Cold War days, bin Laden would have quietly disappeared for a few weeks before turning up dead with a three sentence cover story released to the press. He'd still have ended up dead, but now we'd know every detail that was in his evil brain. And his surviving cohorts would be a lot more terrified of undergoing what the boss went through than they are of the picnic lunch of a quick bullet in the head. The "terrorists" would be terrified of US -- and rightly so. That's how things worked back when "adults" ran the country. Cornered Japanese soldiers jumped off cliffs rather than face our Marines with flame throwers. A trembling Adolf Hitler committed suicide in his bunker like a p#ssy rather than face what our soldiers had in store for him.

    But like I said, that's how things worked back when adults were in control (before we Baby Boomers invented Political Correctness and insisted on ruining the country). Our fathers and grandfathers were "adults" who knew how to run things. Don't forget it.
