Who is watching the news? Obama is about to deliver a statement in the White House briefing room. John King from CNN said that the announcement is about Osama Bin Ladin's death.

According to John King, the U.S has the body of Bin Ladin.

So what's next?

Nah! Ghadafi. They just killed his son and his grandchildren. They will hang him like they hang Sadam Hussein.

No one would remember the Good Samaritan if he'd only had good intentions; he had money as well.

Did we kill him or someone else did/he died of "natural" causes?

You beat me by maybe 30 secs on this thread. I deleted mine as a show of defeat.

On the real though, nice to have some sort of symbol of closure coming close to the 10 year of 9/11

he died from "US military Action"

[someone shot his ass]

I wonder if the person(s) that shot him could publicly come out about it (write a book etc) or if they did they'd be a target...

Honestly, I don't bother posting much anymore because of cunts like you, but fuck you if you think Obama had jack shit to do with this.

Chalk this up to George Bush and him going after Bin Ladin. Obama has made it his presidency to blame everything on Bush. Well guess what, this is Bush's fault also and he should get all the credit.

And with that I am done with this post.

We have his body. He was killed a week ago and we confirmed with DNA testing.

Well, I guess the fact that there isn't a UN resolution on the table that authorises anything but a no-fly zone and protection of civilians whilst also calling for dialogue with Gadaffi might be of interest to some.

I would be interested to hear if it's confirmed that it was a US plane, because my country is a NATO member and there's speculation that it was one of ours.

Dude, shut the fuck up. While I'm with ANT on this that Bush deserves way more credit for this than Obama. I'm not going to get political with this. This isn't about politics, this is great day for ALL AMERICANS (and if you disagree you can go throw yourself off a bridge because you are a worthless piece of shit).

My one regret is that he was killed quickly with a bomb rather than having the slow painful death he deserved. If anyone saw the movie Law Abiding Citizen and how Gerald Butler killed the second guy who murdered his family then you know exactly what I would have done to him.....and then I would have fed him into a wood chipper feet first.

Yes, a slow painful death would have been amazing... but I'm just glad he can no longer breath. If ANYBODY needed a good killin', it was him.

Get over yourself. This wasn't the result of the actions of Bush or Obama. We should be lauding our special forces.

Like I already said, while this is good news for all Americans and I'm glad the f***er is dead, this is a badly needed smoke-screen of an announcement for Obama's administration. Fundamentals haven't changed and you have more imminent issues at hand to deal with. I'm not going to party like it's 1999 just because he was "supposedly" killed this week. Who knows really how long he's been dead for.

This is going to be all over the MSM and it will be spun way out of proportion. Again, glad he's dead, but it's not changing anything. It's said he was killed in a mansion outside of Islamabad.

Islamabad? Are you fucking kidding me? If you've ever been there, you know what a small, sleepy, upscale and totally not like the rest of Pakistan kinda place it is. It's like the world's most wanted person was found in Aspen or the Hamptons. I mean, the Pakistanis had to have known this asshole was in their capitol city. This is crazy news. Pakistan has some explaining to do.

You think it's coincidence this was rolled out before NY opens up on Monday? While London and other markets are on a holiday? How about silver and gold flash-crashing just hours before this announcement?

No Americans were harmed :)

Good job special forces operators... good job.

Could you imagine being the guy or being the guy on that team that killed him? They must feel like ultimate badasses right now and rightfully so.
