I called my mother to make sure she was awake to watch this. Her response : "I can't put on the news right now I'm watching a Harry Potter I haven't seen on DVD. I'll watch the replay. "

CNN showing spontaneous gathering outside the White House singing the national anthem and waving flags, chanting "USA, USA"

I'm not sure we should be celebrating an assassination like this.
2011-05-01 11:19:53 PM  
...and it looks like a mob is trying to storm the gates of the White House on CNN's feed right now.

Geraldo just said: "Obama is dead and I don't care." LOL

About farking time.

Something I posted in the other thread:

I'm skimming some conspiracy theory sites on the topic, some highlights:

He's been dead since 2003. They're just admitting it now?


Bin laden died 9 yrs ago. And you're a mod?


Bin Laden being dead would be anti-climatic. At least it would be for me especially since McCain has known where he is all this time.
Ugh. I don't feel better.


Mod_ Both CNN and Fox are reporting that Obama will say Bin Laden has been killed. ROFLMO....He's been dead for 8 yrs and now Obama pulls this BS out to get re-elected.


OBL's death doesn't solve anything.

The war continues, the debt still climbs, Congress is still impotent, and many other issues remain.

Yet, we hold a conference to announce the death of OBL who has never been wanted for 9/11.


What about sending aid to areas in the US effected by the recent tornados?
oh wait... avert your eyes!

I'm sure Free Republic will be just as bad.

I gotta post in here. Mandatory for posterity.

/will reserve opinion on the matter until I learn more

Ted Kennedy's Brain Tumor: 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.

Sources are reporting that he was killed in Afghanistan. Other note: Today is 8 years, exactly, since Bush's "Mission Accomplished" Speech
2011-05-01 11:20:13 PM  

Royale With Cheese: 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?

Uggh. "officially"

I hear they found him in a Burlington Coat Factory.
2011-05-01 11:20:14 PM  

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.
2011-05-01 11:20:16 PM  

maamold: IamSoSmart_S_M_R_T: Good jorb Faux News:

/Not a shop

Both the FBI and CIA use the name Usama

/Not a Joke.

There is no official spelling of OBL's name due to the ambiguities in translating Arabic script to the alphabet we use in English.
2011-05-01 11:20:18 PM  

gamempire: Who cares if it strains relations with Pakistan.

I'd say 'harboring the FBI's #1 Most Wanted Fugitive' will probably count toward the 'strain' quotient more than any action the U.S. has taken.

/2 cents

diadelsuerte: It's getting SO farkING OLD.

So was Osama.
2011-05-01 11:20:22 PM  
Wait! Did they say Obama or Osama?

Joey JoJo Junior Shabadoo: 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.

I just read the dude was found in a mansion outside of Islamabad. Not sure how true that is...
2011-05-01 11:20:25 PM  

furiousxgeorge: Yub Nub!

LOL Awesome!

Let's hope & pray it starts a new era of diplomatic talks and that it doesn't spark retaliations.

Congratulations and thanks to the men and women who served both overseas and at home!

Anyone else think Obama farked up by letting Twitter break the news before he did? Coulda used that momentum to unite the country and actually get some shiat done...

2011-05-01 11:20:42 PM  
Great News! Props to the great work of our Marines, Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and those in the intelligence services!

I didn't care how long this was going to take or how much it would costs in terms of money and life, it has to be shown that you commit such a cowardice attack on the American people then one way or another you will end up no longer having a beating heart.
2011-05-01 11:20:48 PM  
This announcement is being timed, by the White House, to knock Trumps show off of TV on the West coast, where his show starts in an hour. This is a "high tech lynching"."

Still no speech from "The One."......just continued yammering from the talking heads...

He was killed in a Mansion outside of Islamabad. I am betting money he was staying at a warlord's place, and a rival warlord ratted him out.

Acharne: 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.

It did not have the affect Longshanks had planned...
2011-05-01 11:20:59 PM  
I wanna see his death certificate.
2011-05-01 11:21:00 PM  
There is reporting that this was a human operation and NOT a drone attack.

It's appropriate for me to go out into the middle of the street and shoot my rifle into the air, yes?

Shouldn't this have an unlikely tag?

2011-05-01 11:21:12 PM  
So was he living in a cave? It almost sounds like he was chilling in a house living the good life.
2011-05-01 11:21:13 PM  
They're singing The Star-Spangled Banner and God Bless America outside the White House.

This goes on any longer and they're going to get to "I'm a Real American".

krupintupple: Took a Democrat in the White House to get things done, I see...


It's like winning the presidential lottery. It could have easily have been the president in 2013.

Let's thank our troops and intelligence officers who did the work under two presidents.
2011-05-01 11:21:50 PM  
51 minutes late on the press conference... could there be more?

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

Well let me try because this is truth we are now going to see jihad and Mexico just told us last week that terrorist training, learning Spanish and then crossing into the U.S. from Mexico have been doing so in large numbers for the last 10 years. The terrorist are who helped start many of the Mexican mafias drug trade and taught them all about using car bombing and cut off heads to intimidate.
The Mexican Gov. has said nothing because they care only about the billions getting sent back from illegals over here and now the money from the drug trade which the mafia owns the Gov. and the terrorist run the mafia and they want us in America us infidels dead. CLOSE THE BORDERS!
