Obama to speak in 30 minutes - or in an hour or two (Live Thread)

Posted on 05/01/2011 7:11:45 PM PDT by ConservativeMan55

Geraldo just announced Obama will make some sort of statement in 30 minutes. Geraldo says this is unusually late and figures it has something to do with Libya.

That's certainly a rent-a-mob, but you usually don't see them waving the Stars and Stripes. :)

That is so tacky, well it's not surprising considering the occupant inside the WH.

I’m happy celebrating here on FR. I will be celebrating in November 2012 when the Usuper-in-chief is defeated. That job is harder now, but not impossible.

I just think that many of those celebrating in front of the WH were protesting our actions in Iraq and Afghanistan not that long ago. Somewhat ironic, no?

OBL became expendable to BHO now that he's so close to reestablishing the Caliphate - based in it's old center - Tripoli - with the vast area of Egypt and Libya, control of half of the Mediterranean and the Suez - etc etc.

And, although he was killed a week ago - making this such a big IMMEDIATE ALERT late at night - takes a lot of the story of innocent children killed in Libya in this illegal and unnecessary war there - off the front pages. America and the world was getting up in arms. This was handy to break in this way.

They didn't need OBL anymore.

CNN saying intel was that the mansion was very suspicious:

1. Million dollar mansion with no internet and telephone
2. Residents burned their trash instead of putting it out for collection.
3. U.S. had interest in the couriers entering/exiting the mansion.

Sounds like some really good HUMINT led to this raid.

God Bless our fighting forces.

They’re saying the mansion was highly guarded with 6 to 8 foot walls. Clearly our guys did outstanding work in breaching that and the fire-fight which followed...I doubt they expected it...

I;m certain we won’t hear who our guys were until years down the road...but may God bless them for taking this thug out!

THAT is weird timing. I still firmly beleiev that there are high officials in the Obama Administration who are selectively helping/helped Wikileaks and/or Bradley Manning. The timing of that is too coincidental.

W's statement, on his Facebook page is time stamped 8:55pm, apparently and oddly, Pacific time as his Note page says 25 min. ago. I didn't even know W had a Facebook page, this is only 3rd post and his first since last November. Apparently he doesn't need a teleprompter to be prompt.

Pulled because of FR’s don't talk about sensitive material policy no doubt. When it was announced that the newly weds were postponing their honeymoon, we discussed what was going on. Thought it had something to do with Libya.Both Will and Harry will be reporting for duty in the AM.

I know first instinct is to celebrate, but hope everyone keeps an eye out for anything suspicious around them.

Facbook flashmob? Obama took over an hour to give the speec h from when they interrupted Celebrity Apprentice; plenty of time to get a flashmob which can normally be organized very quickly within 5-10 minutes notice.

Except that we are now learning that OBL was living a life of luxury, in a mansion, 75 miles north of Islamabad... WHERE VERY RICH RETIRED PAKISTANI MILITARY OFFICERS LIVE.

Time to nuke Pakistan. Its government WAS WILLINGLY AIDING AND ABETTING OBL.

I’ve been tweeting everyone I can think of to make sure the message gets to W that we know this is his accomplishment not Obama’s.

You should be tweeting that it's the accomplishment of our military and CIA and other counter-terrorism assets. Those guys will never get a parade and never get to go out in public and talk about what they did, while the politicians can prance around and brag about this or that to whoever shoves a microphone in their face.

people vote with their pocket book, not on foreign policy. This is certainly a positive for Obama, but it doesn’t change anything that actually impacts people day to day. I guess some here are saying the average voter is going to walk in the voting booth and put aside the fact that their bank account is low, their income stagnant or gone, their gas and food more expensive with each month, and say, gosh my life has sucked the last four years, but gosh darn it, Osama is dead.

Not going to happen. If there is significant economic improvement, the guy gets reelected; if there is modest to little improvement, could go either way; if it gets worse, he’s gone.

I dunno - there's something very satisfying in watching a bunch of liberal college students cheering the death of a Muslim terrorist, even if the're all drunk. :)

I see David Rodham Gergen just dragged out the "Obama Got Osama" line.

Something just doesn't sound right on the timing, Bongo has intelligence on him for 8 months. I can't put my finger on it, but if I had to take a Tin Foil guess.... there is chatter of a big AQ strike in DC. Can you imagine the fall out if AQ strikes and it becomes known Bongo had Osama in the cross-hairs since last summer!

Now if AQ pulls one off Bongo explains that it was in retaliation of Osama’s demise.

They actually do a professional job of covering the news. We get them over the air in DC. Despite the celebrations, these are dangerous times for Americans, especially those abroad whether they are assigned officially or just a tourist. I anticipate random acts of violence as a result of the news.
