This news is actually spreading like wildfire before the broadcast on Twitter where the first sign of confirmation came when Keith Urbahn, the Chief of Staff for former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, tweeted Im told by a reputable person they have killed Osama Bin Laden.

Obama delayed to get the cheerleaders out in front of the White House, while that I sit here remembering how Clinton had him and let him go. Anybody recall that?
The man who earned this get along with his beloved military is the retired Commander in Chief in Dallas. GWB. Hats off, W. Your guys did it!
This was a good leak. It stole the thunder from the stage hogging jackarse Obama.
Obama was probably delayed waiting on the teleprompter.
Interpol issued international arrest warrant for OBL in 1998, three years before 9/11
What country requested it?
It seems pretty obvious who that ‘reputable person’ is, considering who this young fellow works for. Looks like in reality Rumsfeld broke this story, and I wouldn’t really be surprised if he actually knew before the president did.
