i just literally said the exact same thing to my wife. while the fight against terrorism will never be over this is a major victory for us. the terrorist have been the ones working the fear angle, killing innocent people and then hiding. now we have the fear angle to use on them, they are and never will be safe.

this is a great day for america as a country and so many people can finally have the closure they have been looking for for a long time now. i saw on the news this morning a man from who woodbridge got in his car last night with a picture of his son and the flag he received when he was kia. he drove in the middle of the night to the white house so his son could be there while people were celebrating.

just one more thank you to all those who are serving the country right now and those who have served, what a great day for the good ol' us of a

re: Bin Laden Killed

Mooby is right. Idiots thinking the war on terror is over. Not hardly. The war on terror will be like the war on drugs. It's something you'll never win. Our best advice is to change our foreign policy. Note that surrounding countries in middle east have no problem with terrorism.


Also, what the **** is this??

Osama bin Laden's body buried at sea - CBS News

Are you shitting me? Really? So now there is no ****ing proof whatsoever that the man is really dead...lol You know how to can divert the American's attention from the ****ed up politics and shitty budget they want to pass? Just kill a bad guy and wave American flags!!! /facepalm

I read somewhere (not sure this factual), but it's something staggering like 1.7 trillion dollars.

re: Bin Laden Killed

I know US citizens tend to dislike things that take a long time, but again, many of our countries staunchest enemies believe that we don't have the long term will power to search out those who do the country harm. Therefore, the fact that we continued through 10 years of unglamorous hunt and search missions says something to our enemies that hasn't been said in a long long time.

As for the cost, ugh, but I wonder how that specific tally could ever be calculated and separated from the typical intelligence budgets. It's not like we would have said, oh well since we aren't hunting Bin Laden, I guess we don't need to keep tabs on Al-Qaeda courier movements any more.

They took ample photos of bin Laden, I'm sure they'll be released in coming days. Oh, he's dead!

As long as they have photos and some sort of video evidence, I'm fine with them burying the guy wherever. I think the American public need to see this asshat dead and not just hear about it.

Seriously WTF, Lesson 101 on how to start a conspiracy theory. Take major wanted man, kill in black ops, and bury body at sea.



I hope that they got absolute clear and distinct proof recorded and maintained. (no lost minutes of tape ala NASA moon landing)

re: Bin Laden Killed

So I just heard that the helicopter carry the SEALS malfunctioned and had to make an emergency landing inside the compound. Not knowing if they had a way out or not, they de-boarded anyway and carried out the mission to kill OBL. Then the back-up helo arrived and they boarded with his body and tons of intel they took from the compound.

Also, the president didn't want to bomb the compound with missle strikes because he wanted proof that OBL was dead and not some mangled, unidentifiable body.

This all sounds like a screenplay.

I think they want to great lengths (too far in my opinion) to honor the muslim law to bury the dead within 24 hours. And they buried him at sea as not make his grave site a shrine or pilgrimage of sorts.

Truthfully, I wouldn't put anything past our government. Does "they have weapons of mass destruction" ring a bell? I hear we are still looking for them, as is OJ for his wife's real killer.

Well the last thing you need is a shrine to Bin Laden and I'm sure no country wanted Bin Laden buried within their borders.

Al Qaeda would be quick to claim that Bin Laden is still alive if that was the case.

re: Bin Laden Killed

The problem with pics is that the conspiracy theorists will inevitably claim they are doctored. Most sane people will accept them on face value, and move on. It just will be another US conspiracy quirk. Already one fake death photo is circulating...

Man this is scary. It eerily sounds like the botched rescue operation in Iran during the hostage crisis there in the last 70s. Good thing things worked out well for our guys.
