Obama is afraid of offending Muslim sensibilities

The world has gone mad, or at least parts of our country. 

In a sane world certain things make sense.  You fight to win.  You fight because you are right.  You do not let thugs; bandits, criminals and bullies dictate what you do or how you fight. 
 This is particularly true when you are the United States of America. 
 Yet the most powerful nation in the world is acting like a country that is either insane or has a suicide wish. 
 Only a few short days ago, American forces killed the most wanted man in the world.   After the raid that killed him, we took Osama bin Laden’s body with us, back to a U.S. Navy warship.  Instead of cleaning him up, like we did the son’s of Sadam Hussein, so we could present proof positive that we had killed him; he was quickly buried at sea, allegedly in accordance with Islamic sensibilities. 
 We are at war with at least radical Islam, if not Islam itself.  We are told repeatedly that Bin Laden is not a true Muslim, yet we have to give him a Muslim funeral and the need to do that trumps all other considerations?
 Today, Obama has announced America will not release the photos of a dead Osama.  Why?  Once again, we are afraid of offending Muslim sensibilities.  When have Muslims ever been afraid of offending American sensibilities?   Again, the desire not to offend “Muslim sensibilities” over rules much more important considerations.
