Yes. It is very interesting. They are ambivalent.

Seals?

That would have been my first thought.

The female reporter repeatedly calls him “Obama bin laden” and then corrects herself. Hilarious!

What’s with FoxNews using the spelling “Usama” instead of “Osama”? No one else is.

From MSNBC:

"In the wake of this operation, there may be a heightened threat to the U.S. homeland," a U.S. official said. "The U.S. is taking every possible precaution. The State Department has sent advisories to embassies worldwide and has issued a travel ban for Pakistan."

Given our current Homeland Security Dept., the possibility is rising quickly!

Call me cynical, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see this story morph into one that indicates that, while we were all disgusted that the Marxist girl-child was playing so much golf lately, he was actually secretly training a squad of Navy Seals for a special mission.........

I'm already seeing the predictable crap from the Left...."Mission Really Accomplished", or "Obama did in two years what Bush couldn't in eight".

It's a real danger to politicize this, and shouldn't be. However, if this is the course they choose and God forbid, there is some sort of retaliation attack......

Probably because of the so many times people would say Obama instead of Osama...and we that are too dumb to know need to have the spelling changed so we won't be confused...

Yeah, and today Obama let them loose so they could kill Bin Laden last week, or something like that. ; )

Congrats SEALs, you did good, real good. And thank you for killing him so we don't have to have some damn trial for the bastard. BTW, I hope you used bullets dipped in pig fat. ; ) Just sayin.

Paki talking head now reporting that ISI was out of the loop, but rumors have circulated of Delta operations in the area. I hope they show us a confirmed kill photo, with a strip of bacon over each eye.

It’s all over the map, but yeah....there’s some joy there, too. The happy-dancers seem split between those who feel this will cinch his re-election, and those who are already spending the anticipated savings “now that the war on terror is over”! Crazy vermin. I don’t blame you for avoiding the site......5 minutes reading and you need a shower.

Exactly! It would be irresponsible for Obama to use this issue during a campaign. His hands are pretty much tied. If he talks about it too often he's inviting terror attacks (which are almost already guaranteed in retaliation).

That's not to say that MSNBC won't be doing it though. In fact, they may do it with hopes that a terrorist attack in the US will occur just so Obama can have his 911 moment like Bush had.

Democrats will accept many deaths in America if their party could win an election because of it.

I was ready to after the last few hours of watching the various L/MSM news on the killing of Obama, whoops, Osama, Hussein, whoops, Bin, whoops Obama, whoops, Laden. Hard for me to differentiate between them on a number of given planes, was ready to close all the browser tabs down and call it a night.
FR tabs where the last to close. It is 2PM ETA. Got your ping.
As you, I am angry over the kenyan usurper for a great number of things.
How can anyone that has in even in a cursory mode investigated this creep and all he stands for and all the small through large foundations, other, far left and even worse organizations he has been groomed in over the years have any respect for him.
NOW. He probably with good timing, has negated all the things around his fraudulent arise to power with the help of the L/MSM in the coming days.... nullified any traction that was being developed in pointing out he had no right to run for the POTUS and CIC.
It is weird in a way why none of us did not see such a clever timing of having our HONORABLE JSOC's teams who probably knew for weeks plus, perhaps more, that this was the place to take out the goon, and had been ordered to take UBL out much earlier.
The timing is almost incredulous. As the socialist FDR chuckled many years back.... nothing happens without a good reason.
With that Ernest and all late comers that read this post. I have to hit the rack. Do have a blessed and healthy upcoming day, all.
PS. Strange for me. Well before I joined FR. I had been involved in a Flight Simulator... X-Plane Forum. There, it was not to long after 9/11.... and a sub forum came about, I had intercourse with other x-planers.... and repeatedly told them all it would come to past that the goon would be found and taken out in some private compound somewhere far from the ravages of some cave. I joked about a nice hotel with a swimming pool and other finery. So it came to past.
