Am I the only one who noticed the CPAP machine

I was wondering what it was. Sleep apnea? LOL It's a good thing that we found him, before he simply died by falling apart! I reckon sleeping in caves and walking in the mountains is bad for your health!

show me the death certificate...


Not an Academy Award winner, but I’m reminded of the movie “Under Siege 2”, with Steven Seagal, Eric Bogosian, Everett McGill (and a very young pre-star Katharine Heigl)

PENN: “When the intruder was killed, did you see the body?”
THUG: “Erra...erra...erra...”
PENN SLAPS HIM
penn: “Did...you see...the body?”
THUG: “I ‘assumed’...he was dead.”
PENN: “Assumption is the mother of all ****ups!”

P.S. From the training films I have seen on SEALS, they are real quick on the trigger when threatened.

Did the SEALs also ask him to accept Jesus Christ as his savior before offing him? :)

All right! There you go!

Now I lay me down to sleep,
one less terrorist this world does keep.
With all my heart I give my thanks,
to those in uniform regardless of ranks.
You serve our country and serve it well,
with humble hearts your stories tell.
So as I rest my weary eyes,
while freedom rings our flag still flies.
You… give your all, do what you must...
with God we live and God we trust.

OBL was sacrificed for the better good to help get Obama 4 more years its that simple

Absolutely true! Now bruck hussein 0bama the commie pig-in-chief will claim all the credit for getting 0sama (0sama? 0bama? So hard to keep the two names straight!). The partisan media is claiming 0bama as the savior of the world and now he can add this to his list list of "lies & distortions".

His re-election? or 0BL's life? It's an absolute no-brainer. 0bama would sacrifice his own family on the altar of Baal in order to advance his narcissistic pursuit as leader of the world USA.

Will Obama now award himself the... Congressional Medal of Honor?... He can pin it in on himself at a nationally-televised ceremony held at the same time Trump's "Apprentice" is on.

I smelled that little coincidence, too. The death photo looks photoshopped. Something stinks. I want to see which Navy Seals they trot out.

What a complete mess and hopefully when the giddy media calm down and stop cheerleading then they will ask these questions

The partisan liberal hack media hasn't been asking any inquisitive or probing questions of 0dumbo the RAT bastard socialist muslim commie pig-in-chief for the last 3 years. Why would they start now? 0dumbo orders 0sama's body to be dumped at sea within less than 24 hours and it is just one more thing that will never be allowed to be independently verified. Personally I would not be surprised if the whole thing is an elaborate hoax -- fits in with 0dumbo's method of operation perfectly.

Right. They were told to kill not capture. The last thing in the world we want is a two year trial for this guy. They need to release pics. Nobody trusts Barry Soetoro. If he doesn’t have 2 in the head it wasn’t Seals. SOP for close range combat is 2 in the head, two in the torso.

this corrupt biased media have been a lying machine for the white house since the get go.

It has been truly shocking and when these kids get booted out I expect some one with balls to investigate how the white house and the media worked with each other

it is sickening how the white house makes a comment and not one question instead they attack anyone asking

This doesn't pass the smell test. If this compound was so close to a Pakistani military base, the insertion team would want to get in and get the job done as quickly as possible before Osama's buddies in the Pakistani military can show up.

I don't doubt there was a firefight but I'm guessing the first shot was to Osama's head and no one knew the Seals were there until that shot was fired. A firefight likely ensued but Osama was already at his new residence, the pit of hell, where he will spend all eternity.

Had bin Laden been captured, it would have been one of the greatest intelligence coups of all times.

Akin to snatching Hitler during WWII.

The interrogation would have produced 24 carat gold.

What was his network?
How was command control and communications set up?
Who were his backers?
Who were his contacts?
Did he have contacts with foreign intelligence agencies or other Jihadi groups?

Just having his version of Al-Qaeda’s creation would have provided amazing insight on how the organization operates.

And the PSYOP value.

Imagine video showing bin Laden cowering, with weapons pointed at his head begging Americans for mercy?

What would his supporters have thought if bin Laden was shown shackled and in a cage looking tired and defeated?

Anyways....

I bet the only people happier than Americans that bin Laden is dead, is the Saudi and Pakistani government.

why not injure him and bring him for questioning and getting all the info out of him and then putting him on TV looking like a right useless sap. The info on banking, money, future attacks is all gone and if we had watched him we could have found his number two with others. Why the hell did we dump his body to respect his religion of 24 hours?

Great points all, esp. the first; the official story is complete bs.

If he even had the number of bodyguards of, say, a Mafia boss, rather than a couple of couriers, a woman, and his brother, this could have gone down differently.

A security detail is difficult to hide and in itself is a tipoff. And once you know the detail is there you just up the manpower in the assault team to overpower it.

Bin Ladin was trying to be inconspicuous and it worked - up until the SEAL team arrived.

What I find interesting is that he was living in a Pakistani garrison town and yet nobody from the garrison showed up during the firefight to investigate the shooting.

Of course just the fact he was living in a Pakistani garrison town is interesting.

A round of 5.56 NATO costs maybe a dollar. A trial costs tens of millions. The SEALS made the right choice, IMHO, and they should do the same to all the other trash at Gitmo.

I just listened to the Obama’s speech again, and noted he said “after a firefight, they killed OBL”. The sequencing struck me: “after”? Maybe they did neutralize all other threats in the building, gave him a chance to surrender, and being armed consented to “suicide by SEAL”.

It could be that Osama was shot by one of his ISI "handlers", under orders to not permit Osama to be taken alive if there was a snatch attempt.

The zer0 administration has so successfully obfuscated the entire death-of-osama situation with multiple, conflicting stories that there is no longer a way to the truth.

If you can truly tell anything from licking rocks, Fred, you have acidic saliva and need to alkalize your system.

A nice, long walk sounds good, so long as it’s not on a short pier. ;-)
