Obama Basking in Osama Demise

May 2, 2011 (EIRNS)—This release was issued today by the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee (LaRouche PAC).

Lyndon LaRouche today commented on the killing of Osama bin Laden, noting that the successful commando raid that took out the al-Qaeda leader could not have come at a better moment for President Obama and his London and Wall Street masters. Obama was in a psychological meltdown, and many people in the Democratic Party were aware of it, particularly after the President's paranoid outburst at Nancy Pelosi in San Francisco last month. If nothing else, the killing of Osama bin Laden, and President Obama's well-scripted announcement of the successful operation, aimed to halt, for the moment, the President's meltdown.

LaRouche elaborated: Clearly the intelligence on bin Laden's whereabouts had been developed over a long period of time, and his location had been largely confirmed sometime last autumn. This is the best information I have received. You cannot look at the timing of the successful attack on his compound in Pakistan without considering all of the global factors, the ramifications on the strategic scale, of this operation. I do not rule out that one of the driving factors, from the standpoint of London and Wall Street, was that Obama was in a meltdown mentally, and something had to be done to prop him up. I doubt that the effort will have any longlasting impact, and in fact, the crash after the euphoria could be even more dramatic. We are, after all, dealing with a severe narcissistic disorder.
