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.

So why is the President late? Why not wait for this to break normally?

He's going wait till 11 to get Trump off.

I agree, if obl is dead and that is it, this is being overblown.

Too funny! But if he is dead it is a good thing. Now they are saying it was a week abo by a U.S. bomb. So the prez makes an announcement at 10:30...tomorrow would have been just as well.

With Guevara, all it took was one thumb, supposedly from his dead body. Confirmed in 2006 when they were fixing an airstrip in Bolivia and dug up the grave by accident.

Yeah, it’s Obama bin Laden is dead.
My guess is that they just DISCOVERED HE’S DEAD.
He has been dead for years, but they will pretend
he just died, as if by some magical vibe emanating from
the Obama WH.
Just now they said he was killed ONE WEEK AGO by a US bomb......
they matched DNA in this intervening week.
Obama will of course make hay out of this.
It changes nothing.

Jerry Rivers says it was a U.S. bomb that killed OBL last week. DNA results have just confirmed.

I HATE Whorealdo. I wish they would get a real reporter in there and get that showboating, glorified talk show host off the air. Before its over I expect him declare his show is the reason Osama is dead. (and he might be right, he killed himself to escape the boredom)

It’s a good thing, but he’s not been a big factor anyway in recent years, assuming he was even alive then.

Don't care, he murdered 3000 of my fellow citizens and our guys blew him up. OohRah!

Obama high priced him to death.

What are the ramifications if he is dead? (in terms of our national security)

The muzzies will celebrate by going on a murder rampage the likes of which the world has never seen.

Bin Laden assuming room temperature really wouldn’t be that big of a deal.

No it really isn't. The media can try to make bin laden being dead a big deal. It isn't, and this is bullshit.

Nabbed at the front desk of a Super 8 in Pakistan. It was a convention of managers, and he got caught up in the festivities and let his guard down.

to inform key people in gov't and around the world.

Death of OBL would be of little importance to key people all over the world. They would read it in their weekly intelligence reports, on page 19.

An alien invasion (not from Mexico,) on the other hand, would be something to mention to important governments ahead of time.

Except it may cause further unrest in the Middle East. I don't think they'll be women ululating in the streets over this.

I remember when Saddam was captured, many of us were on at 2:30 am PT for some reason when it broke. Yet, I remember it being a media announcement. President Bush didn’t feel the need to make an announcement at that exact moment.

As far as I’m concerned, Bin Laden has been dead for at least 6 years. When was the last time we saw an actual video of the guy?


First Mahmoud is missing in Iran and now OBL’s dead corpse surfaces. Power shift in Iran???
