I think the mission tacitly was based on killing. However, some measure of legality had to be maintained. Thus, the surrender command. I'll bet his left eye got popped a millisecond after he said NO.

Give the government its due on this. It wasn't just Obama, he just gets to take the credit. The real heroes are the intelligence workers and the SEAL team plus all the massive forces that undoubtedly supported them during this.

Even most excerpt allow for at least 300 words which gives one a fair idea of the content.

I think it’s lack of consideration or maybe just laziness to not try and make the info as complete as possible. To me if it’s worth posting then be as complete as possible.

"One can always hope the conspiracy monger types missed this one and UBL is alive and being tortured and questioned."

I sit next to a "911 inside job" idiot. I'm tempted to taunt him further than I usually do...which is pretty hard. I jokingly taunt him that I thing Space Aliens committed 911. That way I don't have to explain technical details due to the unexplainable technology that Space Aliens possess.

No way. Their intelligence is wrong. The order was clear. He was to be killed, not captured.

Far better he is dead than being a prisoner on trial by the Great Satan. The trial would have gone on for years and no doubt, Americans would have been abducted and used to bargain for the release of Osama. Dead and buried at sea is the best result.

I actually would rather him have been taken alive, so we could parade him as our prisoner in front of the world, then put him on a remote island to rot so as not to get a "martyr's" death.

I would have preferred to have brought him back here and pushed his ass off the top of the Empire State Building.

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

Or a last meal?

Will Obama now award himself the nation's highest honor, the Congressional Medal of Honor?

As "Commander-in-Chief" he's eligible.

I'll bet he's filling out his application now. He can pin it in on himself at a nationally-televised ceremony held at the same time Trump's "Apprentice" is on.

There's precedent. That other great warrior, Napoleon, grabbed the crown from the Pope at his coronation, thus crowning himself Emperor of the French.

I bet the Pakis gave him up.

Considering the notoriety and the money of Obama Bin Laden, he didn’t seem to have a very stout security team. This smells like a setup.

Let me get this straight. The majority of American’s polled do not trust our President or our government. So when they tell us Bin Laden is dead and they dumped his body in the ocean everyone starts celebrating? The trouble with conservatives and republicans is they are so naive, they will keep answering “How many lumps?” as they keep getting pounded over the head. I agree with another comment on here: As soon as the giddyness calms down perhaps some real questions will be asked. Jessica Lynch fought a valiant firefight too, until we found out people died trying to protect her as she was told to remain in the middle of the vehicle. She then gave a depressing, disillusioned ramble of anti-war gibberish as she testified on Capitol Hill.

Golly gee, that sher was an exciting time thinking how valiant she was. Did people learn anything? How about the miners “ALIVE! ALL SAVED!” turned to “ALL DEAD - WE MADE A MISTAKE.” Come on people. It’s Obama. If Osama were really dead, there is something fishy about it. This guys knows nothing about diplomacy and spends all his time on the golf course. He’s a total idiot. Something is very very wrong with this picture.

Actually, I was going to announce that I had killed Osama and threw him in the Great Lakes, but I was afraid no one would believe me. I guess I was wrong!

I’m glad he’s dead, but I think he had outlived his usefulness and the Pakis probably wanted to unload him. I can’t imagine that a military city like this would have sat quietly while US forces were on the ground for 40 minutes unless the Pakis had been told to stand back and stay out of it.

Also, I doubt that China (which Pakistan is attempting to snuggle up to) wanted OBL around They have their own problems with Islamists and certainly wouldn’t want to encourage a relationship with Pakistan if it meant OBL getting involved in China, even if he was by that time just a figurehead and “spiritual leader.”

So it was a good time to kiss Binny good-bye.

I would like to think that a Patriotic Navy Seal, upon seeing OBL stick his hands up and say “Don’t shoot! I surrender!” simply said “Not on your life.” and fired a single shot into Bin Laden’s forehead.

Don’t you think the Obama administration would have loved to have been able to parade him around?

Number one the media is not going to stop cheerleading for their messiah. If anything the cheerleading is going to intensify and take on a whole new meaning. In other words; you ain’t seen nothing yet.

I put on my Facebook page, I wish I had the money to buy stock in mouthwash, handiwipes, and kneepads, for all that the driveby media will be using over this event. I wanted to say dental gam, but that would have been too strong for my wall...

I suspect the whole Abbotabad Complex storming operation was filmed with a camera with night vision mounted to one of their weapons, for analysis later at DOD and CIA. Now THAT would be must-see TV. I pretty much guarantee it must exist. With or without sound I do know, but had to have been recorded.

It was a misinterpretation of what the Seal Team Leader yelled out in Arabic.

He yelled, “You wanna die normally or with a bacon-dipped bullet, you scummy *******?”

It was easy to mistake that for, “Surrender or be killed, Mr. bin Laden,” in the Arabic.

Go to www.foxnews.com and click on the headline for the lead story.

Fox also says OBL’s son was killed, as was a female that was used as a human shield. Those Bin Laden men are so brave, that they hide behind their women.

If it was night, it would take hours to get a force rounded up to come to the rescue. Meanwhile, we had helicopter gunships and a B-2 on standby to deal with the threat.

We have learned a lot in Afghanistan about this type of operation. Operation Anaconda for example.

I’m sure the Seals told the -resident that they offered to let OBL surrender, and maybe even that they offered him an Eric Holder lawyer, before they shot him in the left eye. And BO was probably gullible enough to believe it.

Another thing, how did they manage to pose him EXACTLY as posed in the other picture.

If you would overlay it, it is the same, and anything can be Dr'ed.

We need to SEE THE BODY, as we did with SADAMMS sons on video, up close and personal. Why are they hiding this from us?

The news media never minded showing every corpse they could find to try to blame BUSH for the war. NOW? nothing.

Until I see a video of the body, I remain a doubting Thomas. Where's Geraldo?

Two questions, to anybody who's watched the videos:

1. Was OBL hidding under the bed? It sure looks that way!

2. Is that how a million dollar complex looks like in the inside?

Be glad you don’t have the money to invest in those items. I fear you would not make a penny. The fawning press corps will not use the mouthwash was as they savor the flavor. Nor will they use handi-wipes, they will bottle and save the product of their manipulations in the same way a certain dress was preserved during the Clinton administration. And lastly knee pads will not be needed as our supposed press corps will wear their scuffed and torn pants as a badge of honor. Oh yes dental dams. Same as what I said about mouth wash.
