Column: Osama gets revenge on Missouri farmers

HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody?

The Kentucky sky lit up with explosions Monday as Ohio River levees were blown up to save homes from flooding. The spill was diverted onto Missouri farms. Osama bin Laden was only buried at sea for one day before he founded Al-Aqua and attacked Missouri.

The White House took credit for the raid killing Osama bin Laden on Sunday. Both sides deserve credit for the raid. Sending in the helicopters may have been President Obama's idea but shooting bin Laden in the face was clearly a continuation of the Dick Cheney Doctrine.

Pakistan said Tuesday it had no idea bin Laden hid out in Abbottabad. Bin Laden's mansion had no Internet, no phone lines and he burned his own trash. He could go down in history as the first enemy of the U.S. ever killed by a presidential order for failure to recycle.

The CIA briefed Congress Monday on the divided allegiances in Pakistan. Lawmakers are torn between Good Pakistan's value as an ally and Bad Pakistan's risk as a haven for terrorists. The fact is there are two Pakistans and both Americas were outraged to hear it.

The U.S. Senate passed a resolution Tuesday saluting the U.S. Navy SEALs for their raid on Osama bin Laden's compound and killing the terrorist. The gruesome pictures are trickling out. They showed footage of the vicious firefight on C-SPAN and that was just Democrats and Republicans arguing whether Bush or Obama should get credit for the raid.

The White House hesitated Tuesday to release photos of Osama bin Laden. They said they didn't want kids to see it in newspapers. The chance that anyone under 40 will ever see a newspaper is so remote and so slim that it really shouldn't factor into the decision.
