Republican Congressman from Michigan, the House Intelligence Committee Chairman, must immediately apologize and should probably resign his Chairmanship – if not his seat – for this outrageous statement equating US Troops with Osama bin Laden.
Unscripted moments give you great insight into peoples’ inner beliefs. To Rogers, US Troops are interchangeable with Osama bin Laden. At least that’s what he says here.
“The risks of release outweigh the benefits,” Rogers said. “Conspiracy theorists around the world will just claim the photos are doctored anyway, and there is a real risk that releasing the photos will only serve to inflame public opinion in the Middle East.”
“Imagine how the American people would react if Al Qaeda killed one of our troops or military leaders, and put photos of the body on the internet,” Rogers continued. “Osama bin Laden is not a trophy – he is dead and let’s now focus on continuing the fight until Al Qaida has been eliminated.”
By the way, due to “Muslim sensitivities” we will not be seeing any proof that bin Laden was killed Sunday.
