And speaking of malignant narcissists..

You knew it was coming

Chomsky opens his pie hole.

The freeze dried version for those that don't relish nauseous tripe:

1. Uncle Binnie, Bunnie meister, is merely a suspect even though he took credit for 9/11. [His taking credit for that would be just as plausible as me (Noam Chomsky) taking credit for winning the Boston Marathon]

Yeah right. Just like it. No striking disanalogies at all in that comparison. Another brilliant Chomskyism.

2. The mission was a kill mission. Violates all sorts of sacrosanct international law.

OK. So sue the USG Noam old boy..

3. Washington had no good evidence Uncle Binny was behind 9/11. After all the Afghan Talliwhakers would have turned him over if we had provided good evidence. Honest.

No comment necessary...OK just one.. Benefit of the doubt given to sadistic misogynists.

5. Bush is more of a criminal than Bin Laden. There should be a Nuremberg trial for him.

As is every single president in your memory, right Chomsky? (He's said it on multiple occasions. Tune in to "Democracy Now" to hear him rail against Obama.)

6. While we are on the subject of The Nefarious Cowboy, he gave an order that was very similar in intent and consequence to Hitler's order for genocide. Here's Chomsky's own words:

"Uncontroversially, his crimes vastly exceed bin Laden’s, and he is not a “suspect” but uncontroversially the “decider” who gave the orders to commit the “supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole” (quoting the Nuremberg Tribunal)"

"Uncontroversially" Chomsky's inability to detect the utter lameness of his US/Nazi analogies is by now descended into unintentional self-parody. (Eyes rolling)

7. The Bush Doctrine entails that the U.S. should be invaded and regime changed.

No doubt the aged General Chomsky will lead the invasion force, once he's cut all ties with the Pentagon of course.

8. The operation shouldn't have been named "Geronimo" because the U.S. was undertaking genocide against Native Americans in the 1800s.

Uh. No they weren't. Check the books. No..not Ward Churchill's books.

A Pathetic Malignant Narcissus surfing for himself.

Yes. Really.

This is much better than a death picture. Much better.

Keep 'em coming.

Oh..Jim Miklaszewski says there is no evidence yet that higher ups in the ISI, Pak military or Pak government would have known, Binnie might have being protected just by lower rungs. Don't believe it. Intentional stove piping. Intentional looking the other way. Intentionally granted wholesale autonomy. This gives plausible deniability. (That seems to the the import of Mik's reference to the lack of a "monolithic" nature).

That's the Pak game. Our government has to decide whether it will continue to put up with it.

USS Michael Murphy DDG 112 christening today

From MOH News

The Navy will christen the newest guided-missile destroyer, Michael Murphy, Saturday, May 7, 2011, during a 10 a.m. EDT ceremony at General Dynamics Bath Iron Works, Bath, Maine. The new destroyer honors Navy SEAL (Sea, Air, Land) Lt. Michael P. Murphy who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroic actions during Operation Red Wings in Afghanistan June 28, 2005.

Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Gary Roughead will deliver the ceremony's principal address. Maureen Murphy will serve as sponsor of the ship named for her late son. In accordance with Navy tradition, she will break a bottle of champagne across the ship's bow to formally christen the ship.

Murphy led a four-man team tasked with finding a key Taliban leader in the mountainous terrain near Asadabad, Afghanistan, when they came under fire from a much larger enemy force with superior tactical position. Mortally wounded while exposing himself to enemy fire, Murphy knowingly left his position of cover to get a clear signal in order to communicate with his headquarters. While being shot at repeatedly, Murphy calmly provided his unit's location and requested immediate support for his element. He returned to his cover position to continue the fight until finally succumbing to his wounds.

On October 22, 2007 the Medal of Honor presentation ceremony was held at the White House. President George W. Bush presented Murphy's Medal of Honor to his parents

Designated DDG 112, Michael Murphy, the 62nd Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, will be able to conduct a variety of operations, from peacetime presence and crisis management to sea control and power projection. Michael Murphy will be capable of fighting air, surface and subsurface battles simultaneously and will contain a myriad of offensive and defensive weapons designed to support maritime warfare in keeping with "A Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Seapower."

Cmdr. Thomas E. Shultz, a native of El Cajon, Calif., is the prospective commanding officer of the ship and will lead the crew of 279 officers and enlisted personnel. The 9,200-ton Michael Murphy is being built by General Dynamics Bath Iron Works. The ship is 509 feet in length, has a waterline beam of 59 feet, and a navigational draft of 31 feet. Four gas turbine engines will power the ship to speeds in excess of 30 knots. U.S. Department of Defense

On June 18, 2010, Maureen Murphy and Edwin Bard inscribed the signatures of Murphy's family on an iron plate during a dedication ceremony for Pre-Commissioning Unit (PCU) Michael Murphy.
