So, we get our liberties back now, right?
2011-05-01 11:11:41 PM  
The derp is going to be strong on this one.

"Former Al-Qaeda #2 man breathes huge sigh of relief." I don't still have to go to work tomorrow do I?
2011-05-01 11:11:44 PM  
LOL he WAS shot in the head!!!! I posted that gif right on time.
2011-05-01 11:11:44 PM  
If there is a hell, he is there. I've got the news on just waiting for the prez and staff to let us know what happened. C'mon Barry, I've got to get to bed soon.

AverageAmericanGuy: zabadu: AverageAmericanGuy: The real question is how long has he been dead.

A week.

Yeah, right.

He was killed in the last strike. Bet me.

TiredWings: Bury him with pigs!

And broadcast it all over the world!

Smiths: AverageAmericanGuy: Raise your hand if you still believe bin Laden's been dead for the greater part of a decade.
as much as you're hightlighted for insanity and conservatardism, i've been thinking he's been dead for several goddamn years....

Yeah, uh....I have too. Since about 2006.

Whar presidential address, whar??

In a friggin mansion on the outskirts of Islamabad?

That's not going to enhance the US Pakistani relations.
2011-05-01 11:11:57 PM  
Hell yeah! Just checking in in what will be an epic thread.

Chaminade: Good thing Obama pulled troops out of Iraq (why did we invade them again?) and put them in Afghanistan where the threat actually was.


OBL was in Pakistan.. not Afghanistan...
2011-05-01 11:11:58 PM  

Noirceuil: I'd like to shake the hand of the marine that put the bullet in his head. Hope there's no retaliation on part of Al Queda.

Unfortunately I would not count on that.

I'm curious as to how the middle-east will respond to this.
2011-05-01 11:12:00 PM  
It's still real to me.
2011-05-01 11:12:01 PM  

troymccluresf: I kinda want to watch this on Fox News. Luls and such.

This story would break when Geraldo's on the air. It seems God still has a sense of lulz.
2011-05-01 11:12:02 PM  
Yay! It's about dang time! I'd like to shake the hand of all the CIA opperatives that took part in this and especially would love to shake the hand of the guy that pulled the trigger.

TheGhostofFarkPast: Fail in Human Form: TheGhostofFarkPast: it truly amazes me how many people will get off on the death of Osama. It's been 10 years and way to many soliders and money invested for just one guy. This whole Middle East action is a giant clusterfark and now a whole bunch of Americans are going to go wank it to the thought that "we got osama, America fark yeah!"

I don't know if that's sad or massively depressing.

/I'm glad the guy is gone but he means nothing in this fight
//just a figure head who will do nothing to the movement even after he is dead

This obviously doesn't undo all the harm that has been caused but this sends out a message. If you kill ours you forfeit your life.

What message? these people are willing to die at any turn, our guys not so much. We lost 6k soldiers in the fight and probably a trillion dollars. If anything it says, "we are idiots who waste resources and kill innocent people all so we can wank it to the death of one guy."

Meaning the morons use it as way to recruit more and send them our way. Yes really awesome, lets puff out our chest more.

You're correct, some will rally to this but it serves as a much needed psychological victory for the US. Their leadership are not suicidal though and this will have a profound effect.

Hot damn! Couldn't happen to a better guy.
2011-05-01 11:12:18 PM  

printboy: I guess they are trying to sober up Obama enough to put on TV after a long day of Golf and Boozing.....


2011-05-01 11:12:19 PM  
I sure hope he didn't die of anything serious.
2011-05-01 11:12:32 PM  
So Biden is calling members of congress to tell them this is a big f@ckin thing.
2011-05-01 11:12:32 PM  
Mission Accomplished.

To my brothers and sisters in the US Armed Forces:

GO GET RIPPED, you've earned it.

2011-05-01 11:12:35 PM  
Thank God!
2011-05-01 11:12:35 PM  
It may take awhile, but if you fark with us you will die.
It may cost over a trillion dollars. But you'll be dead, and we'll be happy.

/hope it hurt
2011-05-01 11:12:36 PM  

pippi longstocking: So I'm guessing after 10 years and trillions of dollars to corrupt officials and monopsonists they've had their fill of all this "boogie man" bullshiat?

God, I hate this country, people in general really. Bunch of uneducated, ignorant, stupid savages without the capacity of understanding anything other than sex and food.

No, the old one is retired, and a new Emmanuel Goldstein will emerge.
2011-05-01 11:12:36 PM  
I feel disgusted to enjoy ANYONE's death, but this is fantastic news and it sends a united worldwide message that the US will find you... no matter how long it takes... and rain down a Godly *&^%$#@ firestorm upon you if you screw with us.

I like that a lot. :)
2011-05-01 11:12:37 PM  

Capt.Caution: Does this mean we can get rid of the TSA now?

I chuckled....and I like the way you think.

man metaphysical: this justifies everything

Obamacare should be 100% funded now!

The Name: The Republicans will have a problem with this.

Why? Bush is who everybody should be thanking for this.
2011-05-01 11:12:46 PM

2011-05-01 11:12:48 PM  
Anyone else hoping for an epic South Park out of this?
2011-05-01 11:12:50 PM  
Pretty crazy. Weird times we are living in.

Who cares if it strains relations with Pakistan. Also, you know this means there is drone footage somewhere.

Ohhhh shiat, hahahaha, they're saying he was living in a mansion in Islamabad. I truly hope the retribution against those lying farkers in the Pakistani government is epic
2011-05-01 11:13:01 PM  
This is a huge blow to their cause, and I want to celebrate the bravery of the US soldiers that acomplished this task, and will never get acknowledged for the task (for their own protection).

Just clicked through the Mets / Phillies game and the game was held up and people were chanting "USA, USA, USA!"
2011-05-01 11:13:03 PM  
Sleep more soundly tonight my american friends.
2011-05-01 11:13:11 PM

I'd love it if Obama came out and talked in front of a "Mission Accomplished" banner.
2011-05-01 11:13:14 PM  
So, another brave freedom fighter like Che, dying under the guns of the oppressor...

J/K. I'm so glad that they got that f*ck. Now that justice has been done, how bout we get the hell out of Iraq and Afghanistan?
