Peruvian President Credits Dead Pope For bin Laden Death

Sure, why not?

LIMA, Peru—Peruvian President Alan Garcia says Pope John Paul II should get credit for the death of Osama bin Laden.

The late pope was beatified on Sunday and Garcia says: “His first miracle was to remove from the world the incarnation of evil, the demonic incarnation of crime and hatred, giving us the news that the person who blew up towers and buildings is no longer.”

Garcia made the comment Monday as he inaugurated a hydroelectric power station.

    I think I read somewhere that Pope John Paul II was a big fan of the Navy S.E.A.L.s.

    Sorry, JP – the credit has to go to Reagan. He cut taxes in 1981 and after that Navy Seal Team VI took out Osama bin Laden. Case closed.

    He didn’t remove the “demonic incarnation of crime” from the world; he just moved them to different parishes.

    Awesome way to take credit away from a highly trained group of individuals who risked their lives.

    Give credit where credit is due.

    Just if you where wondering, that’s what a south-american pro-U.S. politician sounds like: plain stupid.
