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.

    Good riddance to bad rubbish !!! Hats off to the Special Forces heroes who pulled this off !!! Like others have said, there will be retaliatory terrorist strikes, most likely. Everyone, please do not let your guard down. I'm sure there's a special place in Hell for Bin Laden, and hopefully, it's in the biggest blast furnace there !!!!!!!

    Great work by U.S. military forces (JSOC) in ferreting out and exterminating Osama Bin Laden. We must keep vigilant and fully alert to the dangers that his lunatic followers pose to the freedom loving people of the World. But, for tonight, WE CELEBRATE the TERMINATION WITH EXTREME PREJUDICE of one of the World's most hated terrorists.
