This was one of the better Mob hits of recent memory; The Osaba Hit by the Obama Mob

The Osama Hit by the Obama Mob was one of the better recent mob hits of recent memory.
It was a swift hit and the body gone in twenty four. The children and women were
barely hit (whether the 15 year old should be counted in the child or female
numerical base is an issue).
It was considered legal or, failing that, “morally justifiable”, whatever that means.
It served as a warning to any lurking members of the Osama Mob that
punishment, if not swift (as Phillies Pitcher Cliff Lee said, it was about time)
would be certain. It also served notice to the courts, in this case World, that,
to quote a famous movie. “we don’t need no stinking badges”.
After all, if it had gone to the World Court, could he have plead insanity,
mistaken identity (not that there aren’t some other theories about 911
but who listens to them), mitigating circumstances…
After all, George Washington was Britain’s Terrrorist leader but that
was long ago and far away and besides, “the victor writes the history”.
And another thing, just because we support Israel at times when
we should find some distance if not some question if not
some rebuke does that allow this guy Osama to claim he
is speaking for the Palestinians of the World.
At these times when Gush Shalom ,J Street,
and The Shalom Center, among many, have the
courage to find some Israeli actions
worthy of question, why does the US
Government refuse to fear giving Israel anything
not resembling total and unequivocal support.
Maybe just maybe we might understand,
not condone, why some people would support
the Osama Mob.
Palestinians who just don’t know
their place. Yet.
Oh yeah, and just because he was once
supported by neo-cons like Donald Rumsfield
doesn’t mean he would of had anything
to say in an open court.
Probably he would of come off like
a raving lunatic.
We’ll never know, will we.

Now that the Philly Mob is alleged to be in decline. (Note; Ever since Joey Merlino went away
it just hasn’t had the oomph it used to. Having said that, the Philly Mob, always known for
its diversity i. e., Asian, Black, Irish, Italian, Jewish, and even Russian, still remains more
than a memory.) I hope not to hear from MADL (The Mafia Anti-Defamation League)
that they resent being compared to the Obama mob.
I really hope I don’t hear from them.

Phil Ochs wrote “We’re the Cops of the World”
in 1966. Coulda been yesternight.
