Is Osama Bin Laden a Muslim or Not?

I bet even Michelle Obama is proud of her country right now! Well, one would hope that capping Bin Laden in the head and chest would qualify as the “second time” in her adult life that she’s glad to be an American.

I do have a question for her husband, though. It’s one that perhaps has you scratching your head, too. If Osama Bin Laden wasn’t a Muslim believer, as the President insists, then why did the administration try to give that mass murderer an Islamic burial?

“I’ve made clear, just as President Bush did shortly after 9/11, that our war is not against Islam,” President Obama argued in his national address Sunday night. “Bin Laden was not a Muslim leader; he was a mass murderer of Muslims.”

Okay. Fine. But that begs the question: Why go out of your way to try and give Osama Bin Laden an Islamic burial, if he’s an apostate and all?

ABC News reported that before Bin Laden’s body was fed to the sharks, there was a “traditional washing of the body,” which was “followed by wrapping in white sheets.” After the sheet wrap, a “military officer read religious remarks that were translated by a native Arabic speaker.”  Then Osama was dropped in the North Arabian Sea.

So which one was it Barack, was Bin Laden a Muslim or not? You can’t have it both ways, brother.

The foolish political correctness of Obama aside, Bin Laden’s death should be a reminder that Islamic Jihad remains a very serious threat. In fact, al Qaeda and other Jihadist networks have shifted their focus from large-scale attacks such as 9/11 and are now focusing on what’s called a “chip away” strategy as they plan their terrorism plots.

What is the “chip away” strategy and why has al Qaeda made this their new direction?

For those answers we sat down with investigative reporter Erick Stackelbeck, author of the brand-new book The Terrorist Next Door: How the Government is Deceiving You about the Islamist Threat.

Did you know that while at one time al Qaeda did not encourage smaller-scale attacks like what happened at Fort Hood, now such tactics are the blueprint moving forward?

Stackelbeck explains:

P.S. If Osama bin Laden happened to be greeted by 72 virgins on Sunday, here’s hoping that they all looked like Muammar Gaddafi.
