WHY DID WE KILL OSAMA BIN LADEN?

WHY DID WE KILL OSAMA BIN LADEN?

Why did we kill Osama Bin Laden and not just capture him? After all he was essentially unarmed. They said he was about to reach for some rifles in the corner of the room, but they could have wounded him. But the President ordered the Seals to kill him and they did.

It is generally believed that Bin Laden was responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Although he was the Founder and Leader of Al Qaida and essentially responsible for 9/11, he was not the mastermind of 9/11. We know the mastermind to have been Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the number three in command of Al Qaida; we have him imprisoned in Guantanamo since he was captured on 1 March 2003. He has been sitting there for 9 plus years and we have been unable to prosecute, convict, and sentence him. A logical question would be “why.”

Our Justice Department and essentially the President are totally inept at handling the potential trial of this man. We should have tried him within the first year after capture. We could learn some things about swift justice from the Iraqis, who did not take very long to try and administer justice to Saddam Hussein.

The real reason why we killed Bin Laden is because, if he were just captured, he would wind up in one of our prisons where he would stay indefinitely because we could not ever make up our minds on what to do with him. He could have joined his number 3 man there where they both could enjoy TV and reading their beloved Koran.

We have an Attorney General who is more interested in harassing Gibson Guitar than he is in protecting our Country from real criminals.

Sometimes I wonder how we profess to be so intelligent when in reality our government is so stupid.

MISINFORMED REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES

MISINFORMED REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES

As a physician I must protest the lack of understanding of the value of immunizing young girls with a most useful vaccine to prevent cervical cancer.

It has been shown that four types of human papillomaviruses (HPV) cause 70% of cervical cancers and 90 Y of genital warts. This vaccine is one of the most significant medical discoveries in the past 10 years.

Texas Governor Rick Perry, as he admitted in a recent debate, probably made a mistake in how he tried by mandate the immunization of young girls, but he was right on target on attempting to accomplish a good medical deed. He probably should have made it voluntary and allowed families to opt into taking the vaccine.

The criticisms, mainly from Michelle Bachman and Rick Santorum were nothing less than demagoguery. If I hear Bachman say again that it was wrong to inject young 12- year old girls with the vaccine, I am going to vomit. Bachman just does not appreciate the value of the vaccine, the recommendations of which are to administer to 12–13 year young girls.

The government in almost all states requires the children be vaccinated against Polio, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Whooping Cough, and Tetanus. Parents cannot opt in for these vaccines. These vaccinations are required by law. Parents can opt out usually for religious reasons.

So what is the beef about giving a vaccine to prevent one of the leading causes of cancer death for women in the United States? Although in the past 40 years, the number of cases of cervical cancer and the number of deaths from cervical cancer have decreased significantly – a decline largely the result of many women getting regular Pap tests, which can find cervical pre-cancer before it turns into cancer -- , the usefulness of the HPV vaccine as a tool for prevention cannot be denied.

I suggest that Bachman and Santorum get off their demagoguery of mentioning the injection of 12-year old girls as if it were a crime and learn about the usefulness of vaccines before they speak and attack a Governor who was trying to do the right thing.

I was a great supporter of Bachman but after her display in the debates, she comes off to me a “just another politician.”
