Other good news. He was killed by a US operation in Pakistan. And we have his body. I certainly hope they release pictures of the body.

WHAT IF 9/11 HAD NEVER HAPPENED? Thousands of civilians would still be with us, first-responders wouldn't be fighting respiratory ailments, thousands of troops would still be alive, thousands more would not be limbless, the towers would still be standing, the U.S. airline industry would not have taken a nose dive, air travel might still be pleasurable, the American economy would be a lot more robust, the nation may have never become so divided, and ten years of turbulence may have been avoided.

Bin Laden won after all. Glad the fukr is dead, but he accomplished exactly what he intended, and he had the most powerful nation in human history chasing him for 10 years. 10 years, thousands of lives, billions of dollars later, we got him. Sorry if I don't sound as ecstatic as everyone else.

I was just getting ready to post this news story. I'm in shock. I thought he'd never be caught, frankly. I thought for sure we'd not see this man's body until he died of natural causes.

And he has died a martyr. He has been quoted that if he is to die, he had hoped it would be fighting.

Bin Laden was killed in a firefight with US soldiers. Can you imagine being the soldier that had Bin Laden in their cross hairs and pulled the trigger. Now that going to be a story.

According to reports, the attack was carried out in a location about 100 yards from the gates of a Pakistani military academy — certain to raise questions about al-Qaida's ability to build a custom-made hideout in such close proximity.

I won't go beyond how I really feel, but Pakistan has a lot of answering to do now.

Based on where he was: if a substantial proportion of people in and linked to the Pakistani authorities didn't know his whereabouts, I'll eat my hat.

But we've known for years that the government of Pakistan including the ISI cannot let go of its ties to such groups.

In any case - this event may trigger some revenge attacks from al Qaeda. So everybody, be aware of your surroundings.

The world is a better place without him I'm sure. 9/11, 7/7 no decent human being will ever contemplate committing such acts of terror.

From the news I've read apparently it was a US Navy SEALs operation. There is mention of a helicopter having crashed, I hope there were no casualties.

Not to dump water on anything, but isn't it interesting that right as poll numbers were down for Obama, this happens? And they buried his body at sea, we will have to take the word of our government that this man is dead. Just an interesting coininkydink, the timing and all...

I am no conspiracy theorist, but saying we killed him and then saying we buried bim at sea is fishy (no pun intended). I mean he was the most wanted man, so many people worldwide but so much so in the U.S wanted him dead. I find it strange they wouldn't take the body to the U.S to be verified by non government officials and then buried at sea.

Was great to hear this live on Fox from Obama. Don't think this would help him get re-elected...only a turnaround in the economy will. Ousting Saddam in the first Gulf War did nothing for GWB...disappointing.

I think we should chop up Osama's body into 4 quarters and place it on display on the four corners of the US of A for some time. Then when the time comes, lay its pieces on the floor in front of the memorial in NYC for the thousands murdered on 9/11. This way, everyone paying respect to the dead would step all over Osama's body.

Now the ultimate question...how much did the Pakistani gov't and ISI know?

This is the question now. How many thousands of people have died and billions of dollars have been spent, that may not have happened if Bin Laden was killed 5 years ago. For the last 5 years Bin Laden has been the honored guest of some very high officials in the Pakistani government and military. They built him a million dollar fortress in an exclusive neighborhood for Pakistani government and military officials. Bin Laden has the protection of the Pakistani military. These people are not our friends.

The only good news in all of this, is there has to be some in the Pakistani government and military that did not agree to cooperating with Al-Qaeda, that provided some cooperation and assistance with this operation.

Default Re: Bin Laden Is DEAD!

While I am happy to hear Bin Laden is dead (if it is true), I think the US government is not telling the entire truth to us. Just a couple years ago there were reports that he died in a bombing raid. My suspicion is that given the general dissatisfaction with the job the administration is doing, they leveraged intelligence that pointed to his long time death, and confident that he wouldn’t suddenly appear as living later on they spun an all too likely story about a presidentially ordered gun fight using Navy SEALS (our most famous special forces unit), that resulted in the shooting of Osama Bin Laden.

Politically it’s the perfect time for this. If he pulled this much closer to the elections (next year) people would be demanding hard evidence and suspicions would rise. But this is *just* far enough off that people seem to be willing to accept the claim without any real proof. The supposed DNA evidence is worthless as far as the general population is concerned. That’s not an ounce better than them just saying “hey, guys, trust us!”. Of particular suspicion was this hurry to fly him 800 miles out to sea and drop his body into the ocean. Hah! Are you kidding me?

The gunfight, the presidential order, those are all lies. He probably is dead. He just didn’t die last week.

Don't you think he will appear on a video with a newspaper or some such in hand in the next few days to prove he is still alive if this is indeed the case? I disagree, and conspiracy theory will be rife, but i think hes definitively dead.

Pakistans secret service ISI did not knew his location? WTF!? It is almost impossible to believe they weren't aware, of that famous neighbor of their own military academy in Abbottabad.
I believe ISI knew that and have kept their mouths shut.
Or they are a really bad secret service, you can only laugh about...

However, congratulations USA! This is a great day for a wonderful and great nation! Will always love your country, your people, your spirit and your lifestyle!
Keep on rollin'!

For now I am going to believe that the whole story of the raid, the death of OBL, and the burial at sea are 100% true.

However, the Devil's advocate in me says that the timing with regards to the approval ratings of the President can also be suspect.

Me, too. There are quite a few corroborating stories about the intel and the attack. But I'm highly suspicious of Pakistan. How could clearing acres of land and erecting a compound behind high walls topped with barbed wire in the middle of an elite northern suburb not raise eyebrows??

And nothing to do with Donald Trump?! C'mon Nick! haha

I find it strange they wouldn't take the body to the U.S to be verified by non-government officials and then buried at sea.
I too am very pleased by the amazing defeat of OBL but at the same time the "body dumped at sea" story is a bit odd to me as well. I would think that out of "respect" they might turn the body over to the property authorities, whomever that group might be.

But as long as we have ample evidence and photographs, etc. to back up this announcement, I am satisfied at the end result.

That's interesting ... I wouldn't be at all surprised if OBL had pre-recorded a video just for such an event. I believe he IS dead, but I wouldn't be surprised if something to this effect "pops" up!

With all the media and political scrutiny Obama would be committing political suicide if this was faked. I'm sure this whole thing is well documented with pictures and DNA.

The problem with turning the body over, who is the proper authorities? No country would allow his body to be transported to it.

I cant believe they gave him the rights of a Muslim to be buried within 24hours of his [email protected]#

It is a good idea to just dump his body thou, because at least there is no place to worship or turn into a shrine.

yes and yes. the body has to be buried quickly in Islam, and why not follow that? and what else the heck would you do with the body? what other country would take it?

as for you conspiracy theorists, I laugh in your face. There's no way this could have been faked. Reports on the ground are corroborating; they've got a DNA match; pictures exist. If the guy weren't dead, he'd be letting us all know that right now. He isn't. He's gone.
