WASHINGTON Osama bin Laden, the glowering mastermind behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks that murdered thousands of Americans, was killed in an operation led by the United States, President Barack Obama said Sunday.
"Justice has been done," said the president in a dramatic late-night announcement at the White House.
A small team of Americans killed bin Laden in a firefight Sunday at a compound in Pakistan, the president said, and took custody of his remains. American officials said they were being handled in accordance with Islamic tradition.

Yeah but if treating his remains with respect will keep more of our boys from being crippled or killed then I’m all for it.
We can tell them anything we want, how would they know if we did dip his remains in pig grease?
I'm sure Our Pres--ent Obama will eventually show us what is purportedly OBL's "Death Certificate" (DC). Or maybe it will only be a "Certificate of Dead Passing" (CoDP). Signed in Hawaii, too, probably.
Will their be a "Deather" movement?
I will believe he is dead when I see proof. This administration cannot be trusted, and I wouldn’t put it past them to try to fake it.
Isn’t it a sad thing when you have to feel that way about your own government?
ACCKKK! OOPS!! “there”, not “their” !!!
And we are expected to accept the words of a natural born liar that the “victim” is Osama bin Laden without any substantiating pictures, etc. Muslims strive to bury the deceased as soon as possible after death, avoiding the need for embalming or otherwise disturbing the body of the deceased. An autopsy may be performed, if necessary, but should be done with the utmost respect for the dead. So, if this is done the body will be “buried”...I want to see the pictures before I believe he is dead!
Bring on the bacon!
Who wants to bet Obama didn’t know a thing about this when it happened. He claims he all but pulled the trigger in his earlier Me! Me! Me! speech but I suspect we kept it from him out of fear he’d blab to his Muslim Brotherhood/AQ buddies.
As far as I know, no pictures of OBL's corpse have been released. No proof of his death has been released. But I offer the following pictures, which I've never shared online before. I took these shots of the World Trade Center when I was a young person growing up in the NYC metro area.
This first one, circa 1970, is from the Jersey City shore looking across the Hudson at the Twin Towers under construction. North Tower is the one further along, I believe. You can also see the venerable old Woolworth Building in the left background. Nice contrast, because in its day, the Woolworth was the tallest building in the world.
Also circa 1970, I took this picture at dusk from the observation deck of the then tallest building in the world, the Empire State Building.
I took this shot from somewhere out in Port Jersey, July 4, 1976, the Bicentennial Celebration of the Declaration of Independence. The towers were complete, new, shiny and, in their own blocky way, beautiful.
It hurts my heart to look back and remember. I hate Islamofacists for what they did. Osama bin Laden deserves not the slightest modicum of respect in death. I spit on him and all his kind.
I see your point and I agree. But I am just so sick of our boys coming home in coffins or all crippled up that I really don’t give a rat’s a** how Osama’s body is treated. I’m just glad he’s dead. Two of my dearest firends have lost husbands in Iraq and why? Well, why is answered with Osama’s death but it’s OUR boys that matter lots more than Osama.
At any rate, the murderous SOB finally got his comeuppance.
We do need to see photographic evidence, however. This Administration has not proven itself trustworthy on other matters.
Yes I want proof too.
“I will believe he is dead when I see proof. This administration cannot be trusted, and I wouldnt put it past them to try to fake it.
Isnt it a sad thing when you have to feel that way about your own government?”
Yes it is sad but I second the motion. I don’t believe a damn thing from this administration.
I will believe it when I see it and hear from the troops that shot the SOB. The troops I will trust. Until then I will consider this a campaign fund raiser.
In any event, Obama's true tests are still ahead of him, not behind him with regard to OBL's death.
Yes, we must have proof. Just the administration’s word is not enough. Not for something this important.
I don't know. The Islamofacists and the world at large managed to handle these images without much fuss:
There are still plenty of Saddam execution videos available on the internet.
I could not have said it better myself. I am happy OBL has a hole in his head. But then I hate to see all the ORGASMS by the media. John King on CNN was spouting things that made me sick. I was in drawing blood on a lady and she had it on her tv in the hospital room. I almost wanted to tell her “Move over I feel sick”. John King has no shame.
Strange, I think I read above only several Americans knew about the operation.
Osama is the Jordanian spelling, I’m not sure what Usama is.
I agree with you. It is sad that you have to wonder about your govt. I’ve believed he was dead from his health problems for yrs. And I think we deserve more proof it really is him before he is buried.
Why not lay him out in state in the rotunda of the Capitol? FGS. This treating his body with reverence makes me ill. It also makes my BS meter start pinging for into the red. I’ve gone from celebrating to wondering if my government is pulling the wool over my eyes simply to kick off the Zero’s re-election campaign.
Leave it to the demwits to screw this up.
