Totally Quotable Clementine: bin Laden edition

Last night, over dinner, I asked Clementine if she’d heard anything at school about a man being killed in Pakistan. This is how she responded.

    She’s already reporting more accurately than the main stream media.

    That about sums it up! No additional learning required. Just leave it at that and she’ll be just fine.

    Agreed. Isn’t this the one who told her teacher “I already know everything.”? I wouldn’t disagree at all.

    Speaking of kids and Osama, apparently, according to his will, he directed his kids not to join the jihad. I guess suicide bombing is OK for other people’s kids, but not his own. Fucker.

    – bin Laden’s four-page will, published in a Kuwaiti newspaper, apologizes to his 24 children for neglecting them throughout his life, and ordered his wives not to remarry but to devote their lives to raising their kids. He also beseeched them not to fight jihad, in a parallel with Islamic leader Omar bin al-Khattab, who instructed the same to his own son. His vast fortune is not mentioned.

    – At the time of his death, he had 500 Euros and two telephone numbers sewn into his clothing, according to a classified briefing of Congress yesterday by CIA Director Leon Panetta. bin Laden apparently believed that he would receive notice prior to any US attack, indicating his total trust in his own networks. ‘That view may also be buttressed by the White House’s revelation that bin Laden was not armed when he was killed in a Sunday raid by a Navy SEAL team,’ writes Politico. ‘That team was able to capture intelligence — including computers and thumb drives, and, apparently, the phone numbers bin Laden was carrying.’

    Oh Clementine. I hope she has a talk show when she grows up. Actually, why wait? I’d be happy to take her interpretation of world events any time.
