Our President, Barack Obama,
Has authorized the CIA
To tell us how they killed Osama
(And made a trial a DOA).
The high point of this public narrative
Is what’s left out of their declarative:
That they used torture to help them
Bring on bin Laden’s requiem.
This really needs some underlining
For citizens who wave the flag
While claiming torture makes them gag.
For cheering this is like designing
A future where we torture those
Whom he would classify as foes.
* “ According to senior administration officials, suspected terrorists in custody since 9/11 -- including the attack’s mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed -- identified a courier who had a close relationship with bin Laden.”
