Yes, there is a Third Way—on the Bin Laden photos. Show them to members of Congress in a special secure room,
something like when members were permitted to view Abu Ghraib pictures. Here are the reasons: Having the members
file through will provide testimony to the President's feat. They will be not only be acknowledging but also enhancing his
power. They will in effect become liegemen bowing before him, but not in any way they will resent or will protest. They will
serve as witnesses to the magnitude of what he has done. Each of them will emerge speaking to the national and local

press on what they have seen. Their words will be descriptive, but they will not be equivalent to graphic images that could
be circulated themselves and have mischievous consequences. Having the whole Congress see the photos would have
these likely impacts as well: The far right wing Tea Party Republicans would by their mere presence admit to the
President's status above them and to his effectiveness. There would also be a salutary effect at the beginning of the
negotiations on the debt ceiling. It would curb the ability of the Republicans to appeal to partisan sentiment and indulge in
partisan rhetoric, giving the administration more edge. Having members of Congress testify to the reality of the photos will

suppress any potential "Deather" movement, that the administration has either fabricated the event or suppressed some
aspect of it. (See below for article on the emergence of the "Deather" movement.) This event should be staged over two or
three days, occupying most of a work week, and continuing to dominate the public and congressional mind. Don't let the
photos serve as trophies; instead take the Congress as trophy using the photos.

Perhaps the NSC communications operation could have done more turning an absolute triumph into a PR fiasco. But I

don't quite know how. Kudos to Denis McDonough!

Martin points out that anyone who directly questions bin Laden's death will have an unwelcome audience right now. "In
the euphoria of Osama's death we're overlooking these things in the same way in the euphoria of Obama's inauguration
we overlooked the facts around his birth," he says.

He gives it a week, saying nobody asks questions at the funeral—they ask them when the will is read. "I'm building a case
now, like with the birthers, and all it will take is for a celebrity like Trump to put a match to it, andboom!"

What is the point of bringing this up? How about some commentary as opposed to cut and paste from a bad link OP? blink.gif
