Bathia_Mapes: Braindeath: If someone did shoot him in the head, I would like to know who, so I can shake their hand.

My understanding is that he was killed by a predator drone.

CNN just had some guy reporting from Pakistan that it was a human operation and the Pakistani intelligence agency was involved.

Pfighting Polish: Let's see here ... news events in my lifetime that defined the world I live in:

Challenger Disaster
Tiananmen Square
Fall of the Berlin Wall
1993 World Trade Center Bombing
Branch Davidian Waco Siege
Oklahoma City Bombing
Columbine Attacks
September 11 Attacks
Columbia Disaster
2004 Florida Recount Controversy
Saddam Hussein's Execution
First African-American President

... and, I've got a feeling, this.

I think this deserves a toast, Farkers.

You forgot Balloon Boy.

Am I a bad person for hoping that, among the evidence that OBL is dead, is a photo of someone teabagging the freshly deceased with a bacon wrapped scrotum?
2011-05-01 11:25:05 PM  

The President only played 9 holes of golf today, maybe this is why he didn't play the full 18.

That is some awesome reporting CBS.
2011-05-01 11:25:08 PM  
Thank G_D!
And I am sure President Obama armed himself, went to Pakistan and shot the man himself... It was neither President Bush nor President Obama; it was our soldiers and intelligence communities. These soldiers and intelligence officers had been working through the bureaucracy and BS of both administrations to accomplish this outcome.

Enjoy your 70 virgins in hell, you piece o'shiate.

www.austinpost.orgfark YEAH!

2011-05-01 11:25:10 PM  
How long until we attack Pakistan for harboring Bin Laden for 10 years in a farking mansion? At the very least we need to stop all aid to Pakistan. They were supposed to be our allies.
2011-05-01 11:25:10 PM  

jutm543: Just posting to say I was here...


Me too.
2011-05-01 11:25:14 PM  

Gwendolyn: Some of us need to get to bed. Hurry the fark up and have the press conference already.

Seriously. I want to hear the words from the President, and I'm tired of the MSNBC commentary. Hurry the fark up. We already know what you're going to say.
2011-05-01 11:25:20 PM  
like everyone else, just posting in a (possibly) epic thread.

May you rot in hell forever you disgusting prick.
2011-05-01 11:25:22 PM  
By a stroke of luck, I just landed in Washington.

2011-05-01 11:25:23 PM  
How many comments did it take to start crassly politicizing this? (in either direction)
2011-05-01 11:25:26 PM  
Since they just announced it on the telly, the local base went on Threat level Bravo at around 4pm.
2011-05-01 11:25:27 PM  
10 yrs to get Pakistan to do what's asked for. Some leverage US has on them.
2011-05-01 11:25:28 PM

Chester the Snake: He was staying in a mansion in Islamabad, according to CNN.

Fark Pakistan. I bet they've known exactly where he's been the past 10 years.

WAT? you must be f*cking with me.
2011-05-01 11:25:37 PM  

aragonphx: Took a democrat to get the job done.

Hardly, Dems don't serve in the military.
2011-05-01 11:25:37 PM  
Makes all this petty partisan shiat we've been dealing with seem pretty petty huh? SUCK IT CONSERVATIVES!!
2011-05-01 11:25:40 PM  
I'm still waiting, because I'm a suspicious bastard. Biatch. Whatever. I want some pretty strong proof before I start singing "Ding Dong the Witch Is Dead."
2011-05-01 11:25:41 PM  
I hope Allah has assigned him the eternal task of cleaning Satan's anus with his tongue after a night of dining at Taco Hell. Of course that's after he has been raped for a millennium by Scalrab, the lord of barbed penises has finished having his way with him.

/if you believe in that kind of thing...
2011-05-01 11:25:47 PM  
CNN says our ground troops got him, with some help from Pakistan.

/any excuse to post in epic thread
2011-05-01 11:25:47 PM  
Still no cure for Whitey.
2011-05-01 11:25:51 PM

Bush sheds a tear for a fallen family friend.
2011-05-01 11:25:53 PM  
Death isn't enough for this man but we'll take it.

Closing of a dark chapter in American history. I'm glad it will end on OUR terms and not his.
2011-05-01 11:25:53 PM  
Report: U.S Harvesting bin Laden Organ's For Cheney's Use
2011-05-01 11:25:54 PM  
I bet Dave Letterman is pissed. No more holiday greetings from bin Laden.

I bet though he'll have a terrific top ten list tomorrow late night. Top Ten Reasons Osama had a bad day.
2011-05-01 11:25:59 PM  
Folks, chill out just a bit. The great Jerry Garcia is also sadly departed, and the flow of deadheads hasn't slowed.

/listening to Slayer anyway

knobee: 51 minutes late on the press conference... could there be more?

He's just getting a celebratory beej from Michelle. He'll be out in a few.
2011-05-01 11:26:07 PM  

Mad_Radhu: Big Al: You're celebrating death and then calling someone else a terrible person. Oh how ironic?

This is the death of a man who is directly responsible for thousands of deaths, and by sparking the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq indirectly responsible for the deaths of tens, maybe hundreds, of thousands more. The vast majority of these people were innocents.

This a death the entire world can celebrate without guilt, for it is not the death of a man, but the death of a monster.

Can you produce the document taking directly tying Bin laden to 9/11? I'm not defending the guy I just know that he praised the guys who did the action but was never in the planning of it. The wars in the middle east was our own fault we didn't have to send every one over there, BUsh Co just got a boner for war so he went.

So we can stop with this "homeland Security" thing now?

It's getting a little tedious.
2011-05-01 11:26:16 PM  
Good job US. Good motherfarking job!
2011-05-01 11:26:17 PM  
I don't even know what to post but I want this thread to I'm posting.

2011-05-01 11:26:18 PM  
It was pretty stupid for Osama the ultraradical to hide in a city called "Islamisbad"
2011-05-01 11:26:18 PM  
Clearly Obama is hiding something, with all the big news announced this week -- his longform birth certificate and now bin Laden. Combine this with SETI getting defunded and the Endeavour launch being scrubbed, the answer is clear: he is distracting us from the evidence of an alien spaceship circling the Earth. He is likely an alien himself -- possibly Superman -- and his secret identity was at risk of being revealed. That's what this is all about.
2011-05-01 11:26:25 PM  
I know this changes nothing.



/not in the habit of wishing death
2011-05-01 11:26:26 PM  

randomizetimer: Of course we find this out right after Superman renounces his Citizenship. F#CK YOU SUPERMAN and DC COMICS.

That's because if Superman was a U.S. citizen, he would have caused all sorts of political problems when he flew to Pakistan and ass-raped OBL to death.
2011-05-01 11:26:27 PM  

ThisNameSux: bronyaur1: Good luck with this spin, loser.

Spin? Bush put the people over there looking for him. All Obama did was keep them there. You're a goddamn idiot if you think Obama deserves credit for this.

Oh, of COURSE Bush gets the credit, right? Because somehow his administration's failure to get Osama in seven years is the reason why Obama's administration's success in getting him is BUSH'S victory.

Your first reaction is to fear that Obama might get credit for this. YOU ARE PATHETIC.
2011-05-01 11:26:29 PM  
Congratulations, USA. I'm honestly happy to hear the news.
2011-05-01 11:26:30 PM

Too soon?
2011-05-01 11:26:31 PM  
Woo hoo! Awesome news!
2011-05-01 11:26:31 PM  
Somewhere tonight, a goat will sleep without fear.
2011-05-01 11:26:32 PM  
The Dems just did what the republitards could only DREAM of doing
2011-05-01 11:26:37 PM  

PanicMan: Killed one week ago by a US bomb.

An anonymous end to a horrible excuse for humanity. I think in the interests of diplomacy his body should be returned to his family, via precision high altitude drop.

Nah, just return it to his family, un-mutilated, being better than the people you're fighting is a full time occupation after all.
2011-05-01 11:26:38 PM  
Long form death certificate or it didn't happen.
2011-05-01 11:26:41 PM  
I predict this thread will break the old post limit

gas giant: trigger

I bet he remains anonymous.
