Bedurndurn: I'll believe it when I see his long-form death certificate.

As Coroner, I must afirm
I thoroughly examined him.
And he's not only merely dead,
He's really, most sincerely dead.

Whoever bet "9 years, 7 months," please step forward and claim your prize.
2011-05-01 11:15:01 PM  

Wadded Beef: CNN is reporting that Biden called Cantor and the GOP to let them know about the death. And Joe's priapism.

Biden was awake? That deserves a news flash on its own

SO, does this mean we get our rights back and TSA nolonger has the need to fondle us?

/ Who will be the next excuse to continue stamping out people's rights and spending our money?

put the body at ground zero and let the public go in, shiat on it, and fill that pit in.

then plant some goddamn flowers and trees in the spot cuz the fertilizer will be the most potent ever.

2011-05-01 11:15:21 PM  
Any idea what this might do in terms of Threat level? I'm flying Friday, should I expect air travel to be more, or less of a nightmare? Or business as usual?
2011-05-01 11:15:21 PM  
Well, now Wall Street is free to run the country straight into the ground now that the only party to check their excesses is out of the picture. Hurrah!
2011-05-01 11:15:22 PM  
C'mon, just make the announcement already! I've got a gin and tonic ready to go for the moment! The ice is melting!
2011-05-01 11:15:25 PM  

Burn_The_Plows: I'm calling the Freeper take on this: It's a distraction because Beck (or Trump) was just about to prove that the Birth Certificate was fake.

Bin Laden declared dead on Obama's watch. This guarantees him for more years in the White House. RIP America.


Did Obama kill him with his 9 iron?


Obama getting ready to announce Bin Laden is dead? WOW he really is down in the polls . Dragging out a "dead" man? lolol This isn't going to stop Al-qaeda.

I'll believe this when they come up with a body and it's televised worldwide.


1 terrorist down, 5 million to go. The Obama controlled Pentagon using the Bush GWOT / Afghanistan plan killed Bin Laden its only a symbolic kill. Meanwhile Obama has completely lost the Middle East, Egypt is in chaos and making friends with Iran, Iran is completely defiant and still supporting Hezbollah and Hamas, Qadaffi is still committing mass killings in Libya, there is unrest in Oman, Yemen, and Saudi Arabia, the Afghan war has expanded, the US is still in Oraq, and there is no end in sight. Obama has FUBAR'd the entire Mid-East...


Again Obama will take credit for a job another did for him! I bet Moochelle killed him with her "Death Stare"...LOL (picture of Michelle Obama)


Oh boy...one terrorist gone...when is that other terrorist going to be taken out...he lives in DC...


/lettin' Freep Impact handle the rest

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.

Photoshop Request:

Clinton, Bush, and Obama teabagging the corpse of Bin Laden.
2011-05-01 11:15:36 PM  
Are you sure he's dead? I don't believe it.

I demand to see the long form pork.

If you don't show it, you're hiding something.

OR Conversely:

We need to bolster our credibility, so instead of showing the long pork, we'll claim it doesn't matter, and make a huge issue out of not showing it, mock relentlessly the other side for asking to see it, then when we finally do show it, we'll mock them more and call the issue silly and a waste of time.

/as opposed to just showing it right away, and then moving on.
//takes two to tango
2011-05-01 11:15:38 PM  

The_Sponge: Wow......Geraldo just said "Obama is dead".

Somebody needs to take that ass clown with a mustache off the air.

Well they are pretty similar. I don't blame him for the slip.

I'd love to have been a fly on the wall of the room where the drone pilot was operating. Was he a cool cat or was he sweating bullets?

4chan just crashed lololol
2011-05-01 11:15:44 PM  

J. Frank Parnell: Him being involved with 9/11 was a 'fact' that only existed on CNN and Fox news. He praised the people who did it in a video shortly after, but never took responsibility. And you know he would have loved to. The media just pretended that video was an admission, and here we are today.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled 2 minutes hate.

Except he did take credit for it in a later videotape.

After taking out thousands of No. 2s, we finally get No. One.
2011-05-01 11:15:49 PM  

Yzziefrog: If Bin Laden really was living in Islamabad, then Karzai Musharaf has some 'splaining to do.

2011-05-01 11:15:50 PM  
Does this mean that we can roll back all the extra bulls**t security that was put in place after 9/11?
2011-05-01 11:15:50 PM  
Osama desd, Capitals and Redwings lose. BEST MAYDAY EVER!!!
2011-05-01 11:15:50 PM  
He's dead Jim.

Just wanted to post in an unbelievably epic thread. Holy....crap
2011-05-01 11:15:51 PM  
Al Jazeera has nothing about this on their main page.
2011-05-01 11:16:01 PM  
Well, compared to one of Trump's homes, a mansion in Islamabad is basically a cave...
2011-05-01 11:16:02 PM  

Aar1012: See? The policies of George W. Bush worked. Thank goodness that Obama didn't cut these policies.

What? farking up Tora Bora and then faceplanting in Iraq? Am I missing something? This Bill Ripken would have been dead more than 9 years ago. You know damn well a quick war doesn't profit suppliers.
2011-05-01 11:16:02 PM  
My reaction:
1. Holy shiat!
2. About farking time!
3. Can haz freedomz back naow?

DrumCorpsAlum: Giraldo Rivera: "Obama's dead... uhhh."


I caught that too... he did a "Ted Kennedy" blooper but in reverse.
2011-05-01 11:16:11 PM  
Well well well. They got exactly the emotional reaction they wanted from y'all.

2011-05-01 11:16:13 PM  
I heard they got him in a cave...
2011-05-01 11:16:14 PM  
Heh, heh, heh.

/Still has to go to work
//Brothers and Sisters still in the shiat.
2011-05-01 11:16:15 PM  
Dude, Geraldo just slipped up and said, "Obama is dead, and I don't care." This is classic. This should be a solemn victory, but I can't stop laughing. This wouldn't be better if they got Louis Black.

On September 11th, 2001 I was sitting, barely awake, in a high school World Civilizations class. A sub-par student in a small town in the middle of Bumfark, Indiana. When I noticed on the muted TV the screen was showing a very big building on fire in NYC.

Fast forward to May 1st, 2011. I sit across the country as a successful businessman who has seen and experienced a lot. I've loved, lost, laughed and lived. So really the death of Osama bin Ladan has no real deep emotional effect on me. But takes me back to a snapshot in my past; which lets me see what I've done with my life so far.

Killed in Islamabad Pakistan by the USAF!!! "a week ago"

I am a very proud USAF Staff Sergeant right now!

Does this end the War on TerrorTM?


Does this in any way intimidate/deter other terrorists?


But the bastard deserved it, so I'm happy.
2011-05-01 11:16:30 PM  
I think this shows how far we've come as a country that an event which brought us all together has had its final chapter and all Americans can do is point fingers at eachother.

As someone who values human life. ALL human life, all I can say is fark him.
