Oliver North: We Ought To Be Thanking George W. Bush For Waterboarding (And Getting Bin Laden)

Col. Oliver North visited the Hannity show last night to discuss Osama Bin Laden’s death. Sean Hannity was obviously disappointed that North would not go along with two out of three of Hannity’s favorite memes of late: calling for the release of the Bin Laden death photos and attacking President Obama for being “too sensitive” (read “too Muslim friendly”) in providing religious rites with Bin Laden’s body.

But "Democrat" Joe Trippi seemed not to know the facts behind a regular tactic on the network where he serves as a contributor and joined the misleading, anti-Obama team without question.
