First of all, let’s just say it. How bummin’ is this dude on the left?
I mean, c’mon. What is he thinking? “Why’s this guy getting all the attention? I fought the jihad. What am I? Chopped liver?”
Second, you can say this was a bad day for OBL and the rest of the crew. But let’s be clear about who really had a very bad day. Right. Suleiman Abu Ghaith, OBL’s Press Secretary and Spokesman. Not since Pamela Anderson has an ill-considered home video caused its subject so much grief. It was a rotten press day for OBL. But the Press Secretary’s always the one who gets left to pick up the pieces.
How is he going to walk a story like this back, exactly? What’s the explanatory context you can provide?
