Last night, when the announcement was made, I was at a downtown brew pub. Another customer had received a message on his phone that the President would be making a statement on network television. He asked the bartender to change the channel on one of the TVs. (They were all showing sports.) During the time before the President spoke, there was not much change in people's behaviors. I glanced at the one screen showing the reporter(s) every few moments.
More than 90% of the time I agree with the statements Thom makes. However in regard to the recetn comment made on today's show that "None of the Bin Laden family were screened (interviewed) before their flight, I offer the the following found on Snopes.com: htttp://www.snopes.com/rumors/flights.asp While I have many questions about the 9/11 Commission, (mostly what they left out) I see they indicate that no flights by the Bin Laden family occurred until air space was open.
Although I am unable to listen to you every day, I listen often. I frequently hear derisive comments about both mental illness as well as sexuality, (the topic of which I'll leave to another day). Last month was particularly intense, yet I heard no retraction in the weeks following. I wonder to myself: "...how can someone who seems to understand the complexity of neurological development so well, speak with such mis-informed and harmful speech about obsessive compulsive disorder?..."
Out of the mouths of babes it has been proclaimed across the nation, "no matter how long it takes, justice will be done." This is Good News for the Clarence Frank Kryder estate, which has been waiting since 1954, and for IRS, which is owed penalties accruing from 1969 c/o G.H. Walker & Company.
With the death of Osama bin Laden, the right will work hard to put a claim of credit in order to lessen any political benefit to President Obama. Some how they will claim that it was the conclusion of something "W" started in his Administration. Wrong, President Clinton put Osama on the most wanted list and started a program to hunt him down. It was "W" who after just a month in office STOPPED the weekly Terror meeting of the Combined Intelligence Agencies. This was followed by Sec.
Obama should have played this card a little closer to the election.

Whenever the censorship mods get too much for me at Huffington, I like to post my thoughts here at the most congenial of websites, Thom Hartmann. And the mods are working double over-time on the news of the assassination of Bin Laden.
This is not a conspiracy theory. I believe that Bin Laden is worm food and that American Special Ops killed him yesterday. This is about Obama's complete lack understanding human nature and the ability to accurately predict the actions of others.
Why does Russia and China own oil rights in Irag and the U.S. does not? Also, why don't we, the U.S., own any oil rights in the Gulf of Mexico?
Chuck B...some what confused.
