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.

    Hey,my frriends.An ironic aside to this Bin Laden story.Both Bin Laden and Hitler were prounced dead on the same date.Looks as though they will share a VERY warm vacation spot together for eternity.

    This was not a major accomplishment for Obama. It was a major accomplishment for the US Military. The intelligence came from waterboarding AKM in Gitmo and tracking this close associate to this compound. That was all done before Obama took office. It took 2 years for Obama's intelligence to prove OBL was actually in that compound at which point Obama said "go get him". To listen to Obama last night he directed the entire operation personally and they were all under his direct personal command. Obama told the Military to "get him" last Friday just before he took off for a weekend in Alabama for something, probably golf.

    Thank you to our amazing Navy Seal Team 6, CIA, and every one who made this mission happen. It's a proud day for our country!!! I pray that all who died at the hands of this terrorist, including all 9-11 victims, our military, and innocent people, may they now rest in peace. Bin Laden is gone but we can't get comfortable. We still need to remain vigilant. Terrorism still exists and we have to be aware of the back lash that his death may cause.

    I will never forget the images of those people jumping from those towers, with tears streaming down my face. They knew they were going to die, but damnit, they were going to die on their terms. I have a friend who worked in the WTC. 2 weeks prior to 9/11, his company moved the offices to Hoboken. I met another woman who missed her bus that morning and was walking the last block to the WTC when the attacks took place. Thank You to our Navy Seals who carried out this mission. Thank You to our military for the untiring effort to get this guy. God Bless all of our troops still fighting. God Bless America.

    GREAT JOB to those who caught and took down this POS...whose name I will not even mention. To those who said for years that we should leave, this is why we didn't hive up. We took out Hussein and now we took out this POS. God Bless those who died at the Towers, the Pentagon, PA, those who died as a result of all his terrorist acts before and after and to our Military..
