Actually, the two aer mutually exclusive: 9/11 was an inside job, and Obama is NOT a Kenyan. Not all alternative theories are created equal: it is entirely dependent upon the amount of proof. There is oodles of evidence that 9/11 was an inside job, but very little, if any, evidence that Obama is a Kenyan.

OBLa-di, OBLa-dah, LAH lah lah la . . ..
I guess 9/11 was an inside job and Obama’s a Kenyan?

Disrespectful? I think it pays a little too much
respect to what amounted to a charade called in to
curtail President Peace Prize’s plummeting approval
Personally, I think it’s disrespectful to invade a
sovereign nation and cause the deaths of 40,000+ its
innocent civilians -all to the cheers of an amoral,
mentally ill American public and the grotesque profits
of their pathetic financial and weapons economy.

Actually, there is a great deal of evidence - including video and photographic - that he died as early as late 2002. He suffered from Addison’s disease, and his kidneys and liver were failing as early as 2001.
However, even if one believes he survived past 2002, a number of people - including Benazir Bhutto (who was herself assassinated just months later) - said that OBL had been assassinated in 2006.
In fact, there is precious LITTLE evidence that OBL was alive much past 2005.

I don’t like this one at all. No matter what side of the fence you are on (I am quite left of it, actually), that was an extremely dangerous mission, one our Navy Seals risked their lives to complete. It was WAY more than shooting fish in a barrel. This shows complete disregard for the mission, for the men who carried it out, and for the immense risk involved. This is one of the most disrespectful things I have ever seen. It actually upset me.

Maani—- there’s absolutely no evidence that he was dead in 2006 and a good
deal of evidence that he died when the US said that he did.

No matter which alternative theory one agrees with (disease, assassination, etc.), there is almost zero question that OBL was dead no later than 2006. The entire OBL “raid” was a hoax.
As well, the “OBL” that appears in the photos that accompanied the news stories about the “raid” is NOT the OBL accused of (but not proven to have any connection to) 9/11. This was proven - scientifically - by two separate sets of forensic scientists who determined, independently, that the ear of the man in the recent photo is not even CLOSE to being a match for the ear of the real OBL. (For those who are unaware, ears are as unique to an individual as fingerprints: no two people have ears of the same shape.) This is in addition to other aspects of the “raid” photo that do not comport with the real OBL.
Mr. Fish simply serves to regurgitate the phony “official story” by accepting that the person killed in the raid was OBL.

nope, my regard for Mr Fish’s short stories is pretty
strong. His cartoons are occasionally good, but mostly
they’re not good.
this one is flat and lame.

Your hate for Mr Fish is strong.
This would be even more telling if it had actually been Bin Laden that was excecuted, instead of some stand in.

if Mr Fish were in a barrel it still wouldn’t be worth shooting him.
this one is about worth taking a piss into his barrel as recompense
