You’ve got to hand it to the complete idiocy of someone like Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D). In one breath she says the killing of Osama made Americans feel like they weren’t “a loser” anymore:
And so I think that there is just a feeling now, not just with young people but getting over this feeling that maybe America’s kind of a loser. And now that we’re a winner, I think it’s very important.”
It’s a very debatable position that anyone felt this country was a loser when we kicked the Taliban out of Afghanistan and won in Iraq…but this isn’t the post to debate that point. No, this post is about what Schakowsky said following the above quote. In answer to a question about the release of the bin-Laden death photos she said:
I can’t imagine — what service would it be to the public to provide those kinds of photos,” Schakowsky said. “[T]hat kind of chest-thumping and you know, being — bragging about this kind of murder, no I think the president has handled it just right and most people absolutely believe that he is dead and certainly, those who don’t are not going to be convinced.
So my question is….
Isn’t murder a crime?
Murder is the unlawful killing of another human being with “malice aforethought”
