Incidentally, my office mate is suspicious of the timing of the two announcements. She thinks he waited to do a double whammy for approval ratings.

Yeah, yeah, they finally located him, got the strike team ready, and someone said, "Let's wait a few days, it'll make a better headline." Sure.

I think it's possible. Do we know for sure when he was killed? Not really. They could have known for a while before it was announced.

That said, I have only one question: So what? It's not as if the Democrats invented the practice of good timing for official announcements. King George V is said to have been given a lethal injection by his doctor so his death could be announced in the morning papers instead of the less dignified evening papers.

Looks like the helicopter raid was tweeted live, even if the author did not know what was actually happening. So you kill ObL, wait a few days, send helicopters into Abbottabad for some *BOOM* and *FLASH*, lose one helicopter on the way back and announce it's happened now. Sounds plausible.

What disturbs me is how many people automatically assume anything Obama says is a lie, then come up with a specious reason to justify it.

Whatever happens in the world, somebody is going to come up with some crackpot lame-ass conspiracy theory about it and how the current POTUS is involved. That, sadly, will never change.
