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.

    My Dream death of Osama: I would have liked to see him be placed in the same scenario as the innocent people, Employees, LEO's, Firemen and Rescue workers that were trapped, confused and new they were doomed to die. I Would have enjoyed seeing footage of him jumping out of window to his death, which was the horrifying choice some of the victims choose that day instead of being burned alive. .......Well That may not have happened, but either way, I'm Glad he's gone! Hopefully this will bring a lot of relief to many people who lost their family members: i.e., one of my coworkers uncle was one of the 125 people who worked and perished in the pentagon that day. I hope this will bring him closure, as well as some of my daughters classmates. My daughters were in school that day, and will never forget faculty pointing out certain students before the school locked down. Their Parents worked in the Towers, some made it others didn't. So many people affected by this horrendous event of terrorism, I pray that they All get the closure and Justice they deserve. I hope no one falls asleep, this man has over 20+ kids, and Bin Laden was actually seen at a sort of BBQ celebrating with one of his sons shortly after 911, maybe someone can supply his son with an exploding grill, hmmmm, and Confiscate the Millions that WHOLE Family is worth so they are too crippled for a comeback! ** Great Job US forces, Be Safe and I BIG THANK YOU!!!!.*****

    Thank God. May he rot in hell. God Bless The United States of America and our men and women in the military. RIP to my friends and fellow citizens lost that day including Firefighter Thomas Hetzel, Firefighter Michael Haub, Police Officer Paul Talty, and Police Officer Thomas Langone. America finally got some measure of revenge and it is sweet.
