“Obama Lays Wreath at Ground Zero”


The silent tribute at ground zero in New York today, is all because Navy SEAL forces stormed a fortified compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan in the early morning hours of Monday, May 2, and executed Osama Bin Laden. Yes this is a great victory for the Obama administration, but the silent tribute was not necessary.

This was President Obama’s first pilgrimage as president to the site where the World Trade Center Towers were felled by Al Qaeda terrorists on September 11, 2001.

Obama invited former President George W Bush to the ceremony today. But Bush declined the invitation, reportedly because Obama was claiming all the credit for the kill.

Bush laid the groundwork for Bin Laden’s capture by water boarding Bin Laden’s Al Qaeda associates in 2005. One of them eventually gave up the name of Bin Laden’s most trusted courier, with whom Bin Laden was living. Yet George W., failed to act on this information, so he has no right to be salty because this President did, what he didn’t have the guts to do.

        Last Updated: 3:03 PM 05/05/11 – DALLAS (AP) – Former first lady Laura Bush says her husband’s decision not to appear at ground zero with President Barack Obama after the death of Osama bin Laden is consistent with his desire to stay out of politics and the public eye. (Full Story)

        Don’t ya’ll worry about GW BUSH…he meant President Obama no DISRESPECT by declining his offer. In fact..he knows in his HEART that he DESERVES ZERO CREDIT for any of this. I mean think about it…BIN LADEN was living in PAKISTAN for FIVE YEARS…and Bush pretty much said publicly that he didn’t know where he was..and didn’t spend much time thinking about him. Just what the AMERICAN people DIDN’T want to hear!! What an EPIC FAILURE he was…and he knows it..and his parents know it. That is why he didn’t come today.

    • 1)Obama deliberately kept the ceremony low key so as to prevent the SOMBER event from appearing like it was some sort of 2012 Presidential campaign photo-op.

      2) Bush declined the invitation because he “preferred to stay out of the limelight.” Obama administration has REPEATEDLY credited both Bush and Clinton for their work in helping capture bin Laden.

      3) The Gitmo detainee that originally identified the courier as being connected to bin Laden and al Qaeda later recanted his story AFTER being water-boarded for 3+ months.

  8. GW BUSH was very telling as he promoted his book DECISION POINTS some months ago. When asked what was the WORST MOMENT OF HIS PRESIDENCY…what did he say? Did he say..signing LETTERS to the families of FALLEN MILITARY SOLDIERS? No. Did he say his failed response to HURRICANE KATRINA? No. Well then surely he said the 9/11 ATTACKS…this had to be the worst moment right? No..it wasn’t..not to him. The INCOMPETENT..OUT OF TOUCH…DISGRACE OF A PRESIDENT…said that the WORST MOMENT OF HIS PRESIDENCY was when KANYE WEST called him a RACIST. This is why GW BUSH was the WORST PRESIDENT EVER. President Obama…THANK YOU….THANK YOU…THANK YOU…for KILLING OSAMA BIN LADEN..and making good on a promise that Bush/Cheney couldn’t have cared LESS about. Thank God we have a REAL PRESIDENT now.

      I don’t think Pres. Obama is gloating, I think he’s being sensitive to those family members, fireman and policeman who lost their friends and family on 9/11. he went to ny to shake hands on the seal of his promise. he promised those people he would get osama bin laden and that’s what he did.
