Do not ask for whom the bell tolls.

Do you think, at this moment, Bin Laden wondered which side the president was on?

Do you think, at this moment, Bin Laden wondered which side the president was on?

Four years ago, with a funny name and a foreign history, they called him a traitor. He would be the enemy’s man in office.

Then he hunted down and killed the nation’s great enemy, and they still called him a traitor.

Then he sent robots to kill more of the nation’s enemies than the man from Crawford, and they still called him a traitor.

Then he kept open the island prison, even though closing it would have made him popular with his loudest allies, and they still called him a traitor.

He stands now with the bodies of the nation’s enemies around him, and they still call him a traitor.

So here’s the question: is it possible they don’t know what the word means? Just asking.
