Obama Finds His Inner Bush

US Navy Seals just assassinated one Ali Saleh Nabhan, "one of 4 co-conspirators wanted in the 2002 bombing of an Israel-owned hotel in Mombasa, Kenya, two senior US military officials told Fox News."

No, this is not September 15, 2002. It's Obama Time in America, 2009, where the sun is smiling again and all is right with the world. 

But sinister forces are working behind the scenes.

In Operation Celestial Balance (!) two Navy AH-6 Little Bird helicopters based on two surface vessels near southern Somalia performed a targeted assassination, George W. Bush-style, Israeli-style, and got their man, who was driving a car that had been identified. Presumably with an air-to-ground precision bomb or missile.

Then they picked up the body for DNA identification.

Sheesh. It's right out of Gunsmoke or CSI

According to Fox News,

"Ten days ago President Obama signed the Execute Order for Nabhan, who since 2006 was on the FBI's list of most wanted terrorists. He was also wanted for the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Kenya in 1998."

Now far be it from me to criticize Obama when he does the right thing.

But ... who is this guy that just ordered Navy Seals to kill an African Muslim Shaheed? Either we have the Prince of Love and Peace in the White House, or we don't. You can't have it both ways. If Obama is the P of L & P, as millions and millions of adoring liberals fervently believe, why is he pulling a W. on the Islamic terrorists in Somalia?

Did he get a legal court order to execute this bad guy?  Did Mr. Saleh Nabhan have his day in court? Was he tried and convicted under the United States Constitution?

Or did Obama check with the UN?

And did the ACLU get a chance to find the very best defense attorneys?

Did the Save Mumia Movement approve of this nefarious underhanded stab-in-the-dark assassination of an heroic martyr for freedom?

Or is it just that one set of rules applies in the US of A, and another one in Somalia?

Isn't that racist? I mean, we saw US Seals kill Somali pirates six months ago. Now they've killed a Somali terror bomber, who also happens to have a Muslim name. And then they've been dropping bombs on Taliban wedding parties in Afghanistan. And supporting the reactionary civilian government in Iraq, while Al Qaida has been trying to overthrow the foreign invaders.

Notice that Obama only orders assassinations of People of Color with Muslim Names. I mean, look at the record, it's every single one.

Plus ... has he okayed this helicopter thing with Nancy?

Or is the US Navy keeping all the oversight committees in Congress in the dark, including the Congressional leadership like Nancy and Harry?

The answer is, of course, Nuh-Uh. The Navy never screws its budget committees in Congress. Neither does the CIA. People could get hurt that way.

So Nancy must have known!

Ditto Dirty Harry in the US Senate.

But ... what will Nancy's voters say when they find out?  She's up for election next year. Did the San Francisco Chronicle headline this news? How about The Nation and the New Republic, not to mention the NYT and the WaPo and NBC-ABC-CBS-PBS-NPR? How about Black Entertainment Television? Hey?

And do San Francisco Leftocrats approve of targeted assassinations of black freedom fighters by US Meanies?  Does Bill Ayers know? How about Jeremiah Wright?

Or ... is this just the Chicago Way of Politics?  Is this what he means by "bringing a gun to the fight"?  I thought it was some kind of metaphor.

I'm confused. On the plus side, this could be a learning curve, and in about eight years Obama might be qualified to run for national office. On the down side, this might be just the Machiavellian side of Obama, which has been there all along, behind his million dollar smile and televangelist baritone. 

But if that's the case, why not send some thugs from Chicago to Tehran and Pyongyang to take care of two the biggest dangers to the civilized world? FDR bribed the American Mafia to help in the US invasion of Sicily in World War Two. There's a precedent, and the CIA could just stay out of it and leave the hard work to the pro's. If Obama doesn't know the right people in Chi town, I'll bet that Bill Clinton still has some contacts in Macao.

It all reminds me of a rap song.

We don't need no nuclear proliferation.

All we need is targeted assassination.

Yo!
