    Bin Laden Dead

    Bin Laden Dead

    Multiple news reports state that Obama will announced that Osama bin Laden is dead and the U.S. has the body.

    To be updated when the details are announced.

    This is a time of joy.

    Comments are open.

    Updates:  Obama gave his statement (my paraphrase):   U.S. killed bin Laden.  Week ago confirmed actionable intelligence.  Operation was today by U.S. forces on the ground.  After firefight killed bin Laden, and took custody of his body.  Pakistan cooperation “helped lead us to bin Laden.”

    Further thoughts:  Not really a lot of detail revealed.  If we had “cooperation” of Pakistan it either was because the intelligence was so precise that Pakistan could not say no or warn him off, or the Pakistanis fed us the intelligence because they no longer needed to protect bin Laden or wanted something in exchange.

    There will be plenty of people who will want to play politics with this and, as is happening widely on Twitter, are bragging that George Bush could not get bin Laden.  Tonight is not the time to respond to those who do such things.

    This has been a long time coming, and enormous efforts and thousands of lives were lost.  That’s what we should remember.

    How-seriously, HOW do you make a speech about killing Osama bin Laden boring? The man murdered 3,000 Americans on US soil–isn't a little fist-pumping or cowboy swagger in order? Just this once?

    Irvingprime, I'll agree. One of the next problems is what to do with his body. If it is returned, he'll be celebrated as a martyr. We need to be above desecrating the body of an enemy. A full, proper Islamic funeral, in America, at a secure, secret location.

    No, a "proper Islamic burial" will not help since he would then be rewarded in Paradise with 72 virgins to deflower for dying in Jihad. Do what Gen. Pershing did in the Philipines a century ago and let the Muslims see his body smeared with pig entrails thus making his corpse unclean and denying him Paradise. Then follow up with a statement that all Islamic terrorists will have their bodies made unclean. Watch Islamic terrorism disappear all over the globe.

    Teleprompter Blip? Obama Claimed Bin Laden Was Killed 'Today', Not Last Week


    I thought parading the carcass down Penn Ave and Times Square before giving it to the dogs at the pound for dinner would have been more appropriate…

    (cf 2 Kings 9:30-37)
