The comrade writers at TAP (The American Pravda) have asked a question because they are perplexed at how a fish could hide among many fish for so long despite all the people with computers bravely looking for him in vain. Their somewhat plaintive bleat went like this:
One stark reality was lost amid the first ecstasy of success in capturing, alive, Europe’s single most wanted fugitive. How was this possible — that he could remain concealed so close to home for so long? Above all, what does that mean for the ability to uncover more such plots still being hatched in Europe or the United States?
I know USA today is somewhat overtaxed at the moment what with all the wars America is fighting, War on Fat, War on Poverty, War on Drugs, War on Guns, War on Knives, War on Terrorism, War in Afghanistan, War in Iraq, War in Syria, War in Libya, War in Kenya, War in Somalia, War in Yemen, War in Kenya, War on Lead Based Paint, War on taxpayers, War on Conservatives, War on BLM and of course, the taxing and enervating job of just being a plain old vanilla journolist who has to eat and put the write (sic) spin on things before laying it at the feet of the fools who buy their paper. Tis a hard life. I'll help them out.

Do you suppose the idiots who wrote that article and edited it and fact checked it and approved it ever asked themselves a simple question that is the corollary of their own?

How did Osama bin Laden hide out for over a decade in an open compound in a major Pakistani military city without detection by our ally, Pakistan?

Yes, yes, Johnny, I see you. You don't need to jump up on the desk and wave your hand and keep shouting, "I know! I know!" I know you know. I'm just boggled that even to this day we have captive journolists who claim total ignorance about something as plain as the nose on that bodiless gor (sic) dripping head being enthusiastically waved around by moderate muslims shrieking allah akbar.

How a fish hides.

The naughty fish is in the middle.

Is it possible the journalists believe they have to be ignorant to be objective?

I believe they're much too ignorant to seek such a perspective.
