Wash. Times Continues Attacks On Obama Following Bin Laden's Death

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

In a May 3 editorial, The Washington Times continued to attack President Obama in the wake of Osama bin Laden's death, claiming that Obama "bungled [the] Osama killing with too much respect for Islam." The Times further wrote: "The White House went out of its way to make certain that Osama bin Laden received full traditional Muslim burial rites. Obama officials claimed they did so to honor the Islamic religion, but they were also honoring bin Laden. Such acts are unacceptable on behalf of America's mortal enemy."

From the Times editorial, headlined, "America's Muslim precedent; Obama bungled Osama killing with too much respect for Islam":

The White House went out of its way to make certain that Osama bin Laden received full traditional Muslim burial rites. Obama officials claimed they did so to honor the Islamic religion, but they were also honoring bin Laden. Such acts are unacceptable on behalf of America's mortal enemy; no one suggested Adolf Hitler's remains receive a Viking funeral.

The Obama administration goes to great lengths to stay on the right side of Shariah, but hastily dumping bin Laden's body into the sea was a critical mistake in an otherwise successful operation.

Mr. Obama's well-known solicitude to Islam notwithstanding, the aftermath of bin Laden's death does not appear to be going over well. Everything leading up the takedown was extremely professional. Everything since is amateur hour.
