Bin Laden – The Mad Flight into the Surreal

Osama Bin Laden’s death.

More details are emerging all the time.  Wife? Nope. Human shield? No. Armed? Nope. Resisting? Nope.

The daughter who watched his death? Let’s hope she doesn’t have a commitment to revenge  or his tactical skill.

Other details are being withheld. I don’t know why. Obama will release the photos.

The White House didn’t learn the lessons from Shirley Sherrod.

The end result? The circumstances of Osama Bin Laden’s death are going to grow more and more surreal until they

(1) fade into oblivion, sort of like Dan Rather on HDnet.

Don’t get me wrong. HDnet is doing some terrific work but in our world, no media presence = no reality.

(2) get so complex or intractable that people throw up their hands.

(3) people move on to the next.

A hunger for truth.
