Osama bin Laden's death topic on News Talk Online


An analysis of the operation that lead to the demise of Osama bin Laden topped coverage on Monday’s News Talk Online on the Paltalk News Network.
Guests were Conn Hallinan, analyst for Foreign Policy In Focus and a columnist for the Berkeley Daily Planet and correspondent and columnist Jonathan Wolfman, who related a personal story about how the 9/11 attacks affected him.
Among the things discussed, the reasons so many Americans question the veracity of the story about the killing of bin Laden, the failure of the news media to put the war on terrorism into perspective and the complicity of the Pakistani government in either hiding the late al Qaeda leader, or in helping the United States find him.

Osama bin Laden is dead. What now? After years of eluding the International community, the world's number one terrorist has been brought to justice in a daring raid by US Navy Seals. Under the leadership of President Barrack Obama, US military forces have finally closed an important chapter in the war on Terror. Though we must remember that this is the end of a chapter and not the end of the book. Even now US officials are predicting retalitory strikes against American targets. Now more than ever it is impoprtant to remain vigilante against fanatics who show no mercy against even the most innocent caught in the crossfires of their indiscriminate attacks. What now? Public opinion will certainly question the relevance of being in Afghanistan now that are original objective for being there is complete. Financial support for Pakistan will certainly come into question given the circumstances of Osama's "hideout in plain sight". How do we maintain a proactive stance against terror without Osama as our motivational lightening rod? Now more than ever we must be wary of the tangled web of alliances that abound in Afghnaistan, Pakisatan and the terror networks. It is time to unwind these partnerships to find our true friends in the region who will help secure the world from those who would use violence to terrorize the world. No longer can we support those who will take with one hand and stab us in the back with the other. Now is the time to draw the line in the sand. You are either with us or against us.
