BREAKING NEWS: Osama Bin Laden Dead; US Has Body

BREAKING NEWS: Osama Bin Laden Dead; US Has Body

May 01, 2011

WASHINGTON — Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden is dead and the U.S. has his body, says a person familiar with developments.

President Barack Obama was to make the announcement shortly that after searching in vain for bin Laden since he disappeared in Afghanistan in late 2001, the Saudi-born extremist is dead, the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Details of the death were sparse. He was killed in a military operation in Afghanistan, according to sources, though it was unclear which countries were involved. CNN reported that the al-Qaida leader was killed in a mansion outside Islamabad, the Pakistani capital.

It is a major accomplishment for Obama and his national security team, having fulfilled the goal once voiced by Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, to bring to justice the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

    futuremarine1, I know where you are coming from but like it or not, an operation like this goes through Obama. And Obama is Commander in Chief of the military. He is going to get credit but if you listen to his announcement he gave the true credit where it is due. He didn't make it a political thing. He praised the guys who were in the dirt getting the job done. I may not always agree with the president, regardless of who it is, but you do have to respect the man for getting the job done. We have had chances in the past to get Bin Laden, prior to 9/11, but our president at the time declined to pursue him and he got away. At least give Obama credit for having the guts to make the call for this operation to take place, and the smarts to keep it very low key until it was over and things were confirmed! I am proud to serve always, but especially proud today. I am also proud of Obama for this, and the true credit and praise and respect goes to the men on the ground who put the bullet in UBL's head.
