Everybody was talking about bin Laden’s death today. At work, while commuting, in the cafe… everywhere where there were more than one person!
Interestingly, I was re-enlightened with this fact: a single letter makes a big difference.
While talking about the big news, people were saying (President) Osama announced (al-Qaeda leader) Obama’s death or Osama will win another US election as he wiped out Obama. It’s not that they don’t know about difference between the very two persons at odds.
Their tongue slipped, obviously. The names in fact are similar, except the second letter.
I tweeted this thing hours ago, and wrote Facebook status also. Interestingly, a friend posted a link of a Fox News video on my status, in which the anchor mistakenly says President Obama is dead, and apologises in no time for the blunder.
With Osama’s death, it’s likely that President Obama will live more in he office. Obama certainly will try to cash in on the success of Operation Osama.
By the way, I have a question to President Obama (I double checked the spelling, it’s correct!). Has justice been done to everybody? What about the innocent people who have been killed in Afghanistan and Pakistan during the US operations launched to hunt down the terrorist leader?
US suspected/knew since 2008 that Osama was living in Abbottabad–which begs the question why the delay? http://is.gd/LtSvHC
Though this question will prevail, hope the world will turn a better place to live without Osama.
