No Easy Day — the new book about the mission to kill Osama Bin Laden, written by one of the Navy SEALs who was there — is already creating controversy. The author’s account of Bin Laden’s death states that the terrorist leader wasn’t shot by the SEAL team, but shot himself, then was finished off by the soldiers. We don’t quite get what the fuss is about — either way, the story has a happy ending! But this discrepancy does open the door to a bunch of other bombshell revelations!
Recently video was (ahem) leaked of four Marines urinating on the corpses of Taliban fighters. (And they said waterboarding was bad!) Having never been on the battlefield, we’ll reserve final comment. But on the surface it certainly looks as if the Marines were “going” down the wrong path with this. In a related development, there are unconfirmed rumors that two of the Marines have just signed deals to act as spokesmen for Flomax.
