Pakistan arrests those who cooperated with the infidels (us) to get bin Laden.

While it is understandable that Pakistan would be angry that some of its citizens had co-operated with a foreign power, the Pakistani government may soon have cause to regret these arrests. How can Pakistan argue that it is doing its best to co-operate with the United States while arresting some of the few Pakistanis who were able to help America find its most wanted man? The arrests of these five men, after the conspicuous failure to find and neutralize bin Laden, says much about Pakistan’s commitment to the Western campaign against terrorism.

Pakistan ‘in hands of Taliban’, Caritas priest warns

“Pakistan is now in the hands of the Taliban. They have become even stronger, even after the death of Bin Laden. And enjoy the consensus of large segments of the population: the ordinary citizen, the average Muslim Pakistani, is very angry with the government, the United States and NATO, and this is why they look favorably on the actions of the Taliban groups,” Father Mendes, who comes from Faisalabad, told Fides.

For leftist believers, the jihadist terror war now promised to succeed where Communism had failed: to obliterate the capitalist system itself.

In the blink of an eye after the Twin Towers went down, leftists were beating their breasts with repentance for their own government’s supposed crimes and characterizing the tragedy that their nation had just suffered to be some form of karmic justice.

Immediately following the 9/11 attack, leftist academics led with a drum roll. The very next day after the terrorist strike, Chomsky exonerated the terrorists, stating that the Clinton administration’s bombing of the pharmaceutical plant in Sudan constituted a far more serious terrorist act and warning that 9/11 would be exploited by the United States as an excuse to destroy Afghanistan.

Leftist academics across the country echoed Chomsky’s themes, cheering the 9/11 terrorist acts, which they deemed a just retribution for America’s transgressions.

Missing Hamza bin Laden may have turned in his father, Osama.

Separately, ABC News reports that one of bin Laden’s wives, who was captured in the U.S. raid, has told Pakistani investigators that one of the terror leader’s sons escaped and is missing. Pakistani officials are said to have done a head count, and to believe it’s true, though U.S. officials say they’re confident no one escaped during or after the raid.

“Out of 21, one person is not accounted for,” a Pakistani intelligence official told ABC. “I believe that’s the son.”

Pakistani investigators are probing whether the son could be 22-year-old Hamza bin Laden, known as “The Crown Prince of Terror.” Hamza was credited with writing a poem praising the 2005 London bombings, and was accused by Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto of attempting to assassinate her. Bhutto was killed by Islamic extremists in 2007.

Soldiers without boundaries: How Osama bin Laden was finally found and killed.

In Peshawar’s smog-filled congested streets last July, a white Suzuki car was tailed by another vehicle carrying Pakistanis working for the CIA. Inside the Suzuki was a Kuwait-born Pakistani whose pseudonym was Abu Ahmad al-Kuwaiti. His real name was Arshad Khan.

It had been years of painstaking intelligence work and a long haul for the CIA to get this close to their target. For years the American agency had been compiling detailed dossiers on al-Qaeda’s foot soldiers, couriers and bank-rollers. Many of the nuggets of information had come from far away and often dark and dubious places. Al-Qaeda commanders incarcerated at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba admitted they knew the “most trusted” courier and that al-Kuwaiti had connections with “the sheikh” – ie, bin Laden.

The Death of Osama bin Laden: The just execution of a malefactor.

A cruel and cowardly enemy of the Christian West is dead.  Rejoice!  Yes, rejoice!  We do well to rejoice over bin Laden’s death.

We do not rejoice at the demise of any personal enemy. Rather, we rejoice over what the great Saint Bernard defined as a “malecide,” the just execution of a malefactor.

Indeed, Osama bin Laden was the common enemy of the Christian West. He killed innocent people and wished to destroy America, and, with our nation, the remnants of the Christian order in the world.

Barack Obama won’t release Osama bin Laden photos. Cites national security concerns, possible violence.

Can we assume these same concerns apply to president Obama’s sealed personal records? Why does this president, who promised transparency, have this apparent need for extreme secrecy?

I predict there will shortly be a reversal of the policy on the Osama photos. Not so for Obama’s personal records.

Efforts to catch bin Laden were being thwarted by corrupt Pakistani spies.

In December 2009, the government of Tajikistan warned the United States that efforts to catch bin Laden were being thwarted by corrupt Pakistani spies.

According to a US diplomatic dispatch, General Abdullo Sadulloevich Nazarov, a senior Tajik counterterrorism official, told the Americans that “many” inside Pakistan knew where bin Laden was.

No U.S. thanks extended to Pakistan

The U.S. acted alone in Monday’s helicopter raid, did not inform Pakistan until it was over and pointedly did not thank Pakistan at the end of a wildly successful operation. All this suggests more strain ahead in a relationship that was already suffering because of U.S. accusations that the Pakistanis are supporting Afghan militants and Pakistani anger over American drone attacks and spy activity.

Obama Trumps Trump

by Doug Lawrence

The recent capture and killing of Osama bin Laden would seem to handily “trump” The Donald’s recent apparent gains, due to his success in getting Barack Obama to finally release his long-form birth certificate.

Meanwhile, the big loser here (in addition to bin Laden) is former president Jimmy Carter, who appears (at least, for now) to be firmly in control of the title, “Worst President, Ever”.

That’s politics for you!

Islam’s “double predestination” and Osama bin Laden’s death: Was it “written?”

All of Islam believes in something very close to John Calvin’s (errant) concept of “double predestination” – where a person’s life is predestined to a particular path, and that person is totally unable to do anything to change their fate. Hence, whatever happens is the will of Allah … something not only permitted but (by implication) actually intended … by God.

Catholics believe in in a form of divine predestination that does not prevent our free will choices, that let’s man be man, and God be God … all at the same time. This section from the Catechism of the Catholic Church explains how that typically works. Read it carefully:

“Jesus handed over according to the definite plan of God”

599 Jesus’ violent death was not the result of chance in an unfortunate coincidence of circumstances, but is part of the mystery of God’s plan, as St. Peter explains to the Jews of Jerusalem in his first sermon on Pentecost: “This Jesus [was] delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God.”393 This Biblical language does not mean that those who handed him over were merely passive players in a scenario written in advance by God.394

600 To God, all moments of time are present in their immediacy. When therefore he establishes his eternal plan of “predestination”, he includes in it each person’s free response to his grace: “In this city, in fact, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined to take place.”395 For the sake of accomplishing his plan of salvation, God permitted the acts that flowed from their blindness.396

Catholics would rightly tell you that God gives each of us free will, and once our earthly existence is complete, God fully intends to judge us for our free will actions (or lack thereof) in response to the grace he also gives to us.

In spite of our most grievous sins and screw-ups, we can still be assured that God’s plan will indeed prevail, since it’s not all that difficult for the creator of the heavens and the earth to work around our little messes, in order to ultimately bring about his will and his plan. (Thank God!)

In this, there is a subtle but clear distinction between ordinary (Catholic) predestination … and Islam/Calvin’s (totally erroneous) double predestination.

Without a human will that is truly free, there could be no fair and impartial divine judgment for sin. Furthermore, the erroneous concept of double predestination makes God (not man … not even the devil) guilty of all the world’s evils. From this, it should be fairly easy to surmise precisely why both Satan and Osama bin Laden endorse and and promote it.

As for the intentions of John Calvin, the 15th century protestant reformer … I’ll leave that one up to you.
