Can I take more than 3 oz. of sunscreen on a plane now?

Woohoo! This calls for celebration! Who's gonna crack a beer with me?

The first three reports are always wrong. However, WABC radio in NYC reports that Osama was killed in action in Afghanistan, his body is recovered by US troops, body is in Afghanistan in American Armed Forced possession, and that this is the tip of the iceberg of an elaborate mission. Good intelligence, president and sec of def approved the mission, and now the president will deliver a statement regarding such.

This is huge news. It goes beyond politics here. However, no doubt the Dems will make it one of their main platforms for reelection.

I wanted to add this because it was the nicest comment I've seen so far, but I wasn't sure it would be amusing enough. And then I saw it was left by a Freeper with the username GreatJoeMcCarthy.
Good for 2012 ? What are you talking about? He just lost the Muslim vote.
I believe you are correct. People know that Zero doesn't even like our troops,and they are credited with the kill. and also know he's a coward who would have crapped his pants had he ever even seen Bin Laden.
That sorry godless bastard is dead!!! He killed 3000 of our sovereign Christian citizens. Take his sorry body and soak it it in pig crap. Praise Jesus!! Jesus is lord!!

JasonOfOrillia: Just poured myself an imperial stout.


Holy crap why didn't I think of that first thing?

2011-05-01 11:18:26 PM  
How does he live outside Islamabad for what one assumes to be an extended duration? The Pakistani ISI has obviously been playing us for suckers. No wonder they wanted drone strikes to stop: they were afraid we'd kill their leverage.
2011-05-01 11:18:28 PM  
just want to post in a important thread, and say HELL YES!~
i hope he suffered and is burning in some hell.
2011-05-01 11:18:30 PM  
Wtf now they're saying Osama had gone to Iran? What is this, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiago?
2011-05-01 11:18:31 PM  
This is a good day for America.

I hope I'm in before the trolls...

randomizetimer: Royale With Cheese: MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Must I repeat this! Unfortunately, this will not stop terrorism or the Military Industrial Complex.

It's a great way to pull out of these wars and hit the proverbial "reset" button on what the last decade has wrought upon us. Of course conflicts will continue, but what better time than now to official close our longest war?
2011-05-01 11:18:32 PM  

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

Why? Bush is who everybody should be thanking for this.

Good luck with this spin, loser.
2011-05-01 11:18:34 PM  
About time!!!!
2011-05-01 11:18:37 PM  
Goldstein (new window) can never die.

If the US government is now saying he is dead there is something up. They must have a new boogie man in mind.

/Usama bin dead for years.
//No way he was getting the quality and quantity of dialysis needed to live more than 5 years while living where he was supposed to have been living.
///He may have very well been dead before sept 2001.
2011-05-01 11:18:38 PM  
Now we'll never get to see his birth certificate.

2011-05-01 11:18:39 PM  
head on a pike?
2011-05-01 11:18:40 PM  
For you trivia nuts, 5/1/2011 - 9/1/2001 = 3,519 days.
2011-05-01 11:18:43 PM  
I refuse to believe it until Obama releases the long form death certificate.
2011-05-01 11:18:44 PM  

Penman: serial_crusher: NYT article is farked. Does anybody have any more concrete confirmation than "some guy posted it on Twitter"?

Doesn't look like it. May be a fabrication. The administration is desperate for distractions.

Look in a mirror lately?
2011-05-01 11:18:45 PM  

zabadu: AverageAmericanGuy: zabadu: 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.

We'll never know the truth, so that's a moot bet.

You're full of shiat, you anti-American bastard.

Say what? I'm afraid you might not know what "anti-American" means.

AoP, 9/10/2002 (new window):

"Great Idea. A lot of the Marines here at Camp Lejeune carry bullets around with them. Some wear them around their neck, and the keychains are popular too. Should be seeing the Bin Laden bullets carried around soon for 'that special occaision (sic)'. Hope one of our guys gets him!"
2011-05-01 11:18:46 PM  
So, all the troops can come home now? And the TSA is officially dissolved? Oh...
2011-05-01 11:18:50 PM  
Cool. Does this mean we can now stop spending $2.5 billion per day on war?
2011-05-01 11:18:57 PM  

YoungSwedishBlonde: 4chan just crashed lololol

Yeah! WTF? I was just there looking for the pics...
2011-05-01 11:18:59 PM  

2011-05-01 11:19:03 PM  
Just curious for those in the military who would know.. wouldnt there be a video of the drone flight?
2011-05-01 11:19:06 PM  

HAMMERTOE: NOW, can we cut ties with Paki and Afghani, please???

I'm with you on this one...
2011-05-01 11:19:12 PM  
Took a Democrat in the White House to get things done, I see...
2011-05-01 11:19:13 PM  
This is a testament to our weakness. That it took the world's sole remaining superpower nearly ten years to find a guy in a cave.

Ten. Farking. Years.
2011-05-01 11:19:13 PM  
I hope you're being skullfarked by demons right now, funny man.
2011-05-01 11:19:14 PM  
I am so glad he is dead!!
Can we bring our troops home now please?
2011-05-01 11:19:18 PM  

jigger: Does this mean we can leave Afghanistan now?

Was about to ask that. What happens now?

The world is improved by his death. Rot upon the earth you coward.
2011-05-01 11:19:21 PM  
Everybody is getting on FOX when they resisted the urge to write "Bin Laden (D) Dead". This is high end journalism for them.
2011-05-01 11:19:22 PM  
2011-05-01 11:19:23 PM  
CNN saying this was a human operation. I can't wait to find out about the guys that did this. They're about to get as big a hero's welcome as this country has ever seen.
2011-05-01 11:19:27 PM  

You're welcome, world.

2011-05-01 11:19:29 PM

Maybe it's already been posted, maybe not, but I posted in the a$$hole is DEAD thread :)
2011-05-01 11:19:32 PM  
I know it's probably been said already, but:

2011-05-01 11:19:35 PM  
Donald Trump will really shiat his drawers now. He'll scream that Obama killed one of his religious brothers or something like that.

Of course, his hair is a goat, so his argument will be invalid.
2011-05-01 11:19:36 PM  
The guy who pulled the trigger will never have to buy another beer for the rest of his life.
2011-05-01 11:19:36 PM  
retaliation is inevitable. hold on sports fans.
2011-05-01 11:19:37 PM  
HOLY GOD can we please stop the Democratic/Republican bullshiat for 10 farking minutes and just absorb this?????

It's getting SO farkING OLD.
2011-05-01 11:19:40 PM

2011-05-01 11:19:42 PM  
Now who else wanna fark with Hollywood Cole?
2011-05-01 11:19:42 PM  
National Security Adviser: Mr. President, we have actionable intelligence of UBL's location. However, he's in Islamabad at a location potentially protected by Pakistan's ISI service. Pakistan could erupt if we strike him there. Perhaps we should be cautious.

Obama:Are you high? Blow his ass up.
2011-05-01 11:19:45 PM  
Toasting in an epic bread.

/I feel a strange urge to ignore everything and blast loud music; is this normal?
2011-05-01 11:19:45 PM  
Bush knew a full 24 hours before the Obama regime....

Military only respect the ones who respect them....

/LOVE IT....
2011-05-01 11:19:47 PM  
Draw and quarter. Left leg to Syria. Right leg to the Ayatollah in Iran. Arms can ironically go to Palestine and North Korea. Torso to the cartels in Mexico and the head to Saudi Arabia.
