Default Re: The Mendenhall bin Laden tweets - a year later

Obviously you have somewhat of a different perspective than me as (I assume by your name) you served in the armed forces, but I don't see anything, from what I can recall anyway, that I would consider offensive. I don't think that his comments in any way diminished the value of the lives lost on 9/11; I think it's safe to assume that 9/11 conspiracy theorists equally mourn the loss of innocent lives, whether it's at the hands of religious extremists or a corrupt government. I do absolutely, 100%, fully agree with what he said about people celebrating the death of Osama, however; perhaps that is where we differ? I consider the death of any creature lamentable, especially if it could be avoided.
