Curious that he was killed towards the end of the Obama admin....but killed none the less


I agree Obama scores some political points by his claim of killing Osama. However, whether or not Obama gets re-elected and if this is truly the end of his administration is yet to be seen. As an aside, I do find it unfortunate that after **decades** of the Grateful Dead refusing to get involved in politics, that the remaining members of the Dead broke their long standing tradition and formally endorsed a politician. They were on the right track before. Hopefully 2008 was the end of that blunder...

I've read about 25 articles on the OBL operation and none of them mentioned any drones. The articles quite clearly stated that this was the result of years of intelligence work. They found OBL's personal courier was living there, concluded OBL was there and did the hit with a Navy Seal team dropped into the compound via Blackhawks. It took all of 40 minutes.

...And for those who believe the claims that OBL is dead, there are also those who consider the claim of assassination without photos to be suspicious and perhaps an outright lie. In other assassinations the US has shown photos of the assassinated, such as Saddam's two sons, this time however, the assassination and at-sea "burial" are a done deal in under a half day. Very convenient indeed. And for those who know how frequently and deeply the government has outright lied to its citizens, especially over the past 60 years, its easy to take such a claim under such circumstances with a grain of salt. That being said, hopefully the news is true, because it is surely good news.

Have a nice day.

Abba brought up some great points, right on

I think its rather funny we Americans celebrate death like this. Yes no doubt Bin laden was a bad man but they dont mention we the USA trained him. If we wanted him dead he would have been dead along time ago. Hell we had him in the Tora Bora mountains but miraculosly he escaped. Read the book Kill Bin Laden by Dalton Fury. Also many strategic plans set by the top secret delta force were shut down by higher authoritys. Notice the 45mins prior to president Barry Soetoro started talking no one mentioned the possiblity of bringing the boys back home. God damn i love this Country and i would sure as hell fight in a JUST war to defend it but comon people wake up! im sick of this freedom is free bullshit. I want to be able to smoke a bowl if i so choose i want a good economy to grow into, i want health care and most importantly i want to be FREE

"If we celebrate victory, we find happiness in killing, and when killing makes us happy, we can't grow spiritually. War should be treated like a funeral, because many people are being killed. All of the victims should be mourned, and victory should not be celebrated." -Lao Tzu

‎"I will mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that." ~ Martin Luther King Jr
