OBL's death brings questions on birth certificate release (for me)

Osama bin Laden's death is a relief to us all and an amazing accomplishment for our troops. The 10-year hunt is finally over. However, Obama's actions before and after this event have left many confused and feeling odd rather than happy. There was the Donald Trump show which seemed, to me, to unravel to a perfect end of Obama releasing his long form birth certificate. Very weird occurance for someone who has done everything imaginable to keep it hidden. Then a week later, Obama makes an announcement that OBL is dead and we killed him. I'm wondering why he even bothered with the birth certificate now. Was it because he thought people wouldn't trust him on the OBL death announcement? Did he know that he wasn't going to show the death photo, and then think that people would label him as hiding everything - the BC and now the death photo?
Not to get all conspiracy-theory on you, but Trump's call to release the BC came out of nowhere. And because of the insurmounting pressure of Trump's demand, Obama was forced to release the BC. See? He couldn't just produce the BC easily after two three years of hiding it. In literary terms, he needed an agent or external force to push him into this action. If you remember, for weeks before Trump made his demand, the corrupt media kept asking Republicans if they thought Obama was born here. Off the top of my head I know Palin, Michele Bachmann and Tim Pawlenty were asked repeatedly in recent interviews and they ALL refused to take the bait. They ALL said it was a distraction from the real issues. Then Trump comes in coincidentally, poses as a Republican and demands it. Then Obama releases it.

And now Obama is refusing to release OBL's death photo. Obama's actions cause so much chaos and confusion. This is a moment where everyone could unite and be happy together. But Obama's weird actions, from not releasing the photo to treating the corpse with honor and according to Muslim tradition, have left most of us feeling empty, confused and second-guessing ourselves.

I've moved on and don't really care one way or another. It was just a thought in my head. But I do think it's very strange how this all happened given that Obama knew where OBL was for months. I'm just glad OBL is dead. It truly is a time to celebrate.
