The Ken and Barbie doll news media has lit up the networks and the blogs are all aTwitter about an alleged raid into Pakistan to capture Osama Bin Laden.
The reports are conflicting in some detail, and we know there have been many Bin Laden "look alikes", or "doubles", as they are also called.
This NBC report says Osama Bin Laden has been buried at sea:
Osama bin Laden, the long-time figurehead of the al Qaeda terrorist network, has been buried at sea after being killed in a U.S. raid in Pakistan.(CBS News). Other reports say Bin Laden has or will be buried at sea: Leader-Telegram, KETK NBC.
U.S. officials told CBS News that bin Laden's body would be handled in accordance with Muslim traditions, which include strict rules on burial taking place within 24 hours after death.
Sources confirmed to CBS News national security correspondent David Martin that his body was released into the sea from a U.S. Navy vessel on Monday, likely into the Indian Ocean.
Other reports say he may be buried at sea or given to Saudi Arabia within 24 hours: Examiner.
It will require faith mixed in with zeal for people to believe the story without the actual body presented to an independent forensic specialist to confirm the story.
This tells me that MOMCOM thinks the media is still the servant willing to do whatever the media is told to do as in "Warriors Press For Propaganda".
This is a package designed to make us trust more in military government even as the civilian government is loosing the trust of the people, and as a kind of religious faith grows for the military.
The mainstream media is continually making the civilian government out to look weak, foolish, and out of touch even as they make the military out to be holy heroes that will rescue us from all that ails us.
The bleep goes on.
UPDATE: In the ha-ha media fest called the White House Correspondent's Dinner, Seth Myers indicated that one candidate could defeat Obama, the Obama that ran for president in 2008.
He went on to say that 2008 candidate was "naive", to which Obama intensely nodded his head up and down while smiling profusely.
This tells me they are selling the "nobody could have foreseen" onion script that makes us all out to be fools, or intends to convince us of the hogwash that the future is something that must be suffered through because none of us have a clue as to what the future will bring.
We argue every day "don't do X because Y will happen" which is the appropriate way to deal with the future ... competent analysis.
What we do today is what governs the future.
This propaganda that presidential candidates are naive fools eviscerates our election system, rendering it a worthless endeavor.
But if the election system becomes worthless it will not be because the people can't find their arse with both hands, it will be because the seat of the government is Pentagonia, capitol of Bullshitistan.
UPDATE 2: These professionals do not buy into the onion script, but make up your own mind, even professionals can be wrong:
UPDATE 3: The Obama Administration has declined to produce photos which they say would be further evidence that Osama Bin Laden was killed by a U.S. raid into Pakistan.
One of the reasons given was that "conspiracy theorists would say the photos were doctored".
Meanwhile, the White House has admitted that its original story, or some of the recent versions of the story, were doctored.
You decide which story is "best", after the final patch up.
