3 or 4 will spring up to take his place.

..then we had better pick up the pace, having a drone whack them is much easier than haggling over troop numbers and withdrawal dates....but alas watch for libtards to start to hound the pentagon with cost problems of drones

“It better not come out that he was killed by the US or Obama is in a world of trouble”

The going cost of the last “gutsy decision” was 25 SEALs.

Hussein won’t hesitate to pay it again to appease his terrorist buddies.

Good.

He's been "killed" before, I hope that this time he's dead dead.

Insert dead parrot, Munchkin coroner and the he blowed up real good pics.

"We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them." (President Bush Speech just after 9/11)

Listen up Yemen....and all other countries who harbor terrorists or support them elsewhere.

The US is comin'....and hell's comin' with us.

And to terrorists everywhere...foreign and DOMESTIC....you WILL be brought to justice.

It's that simple.

Brace yourselves for a new round of Obama adulation in the press. Another “gutsy decision” by our president to waste an Islamic dirtbag. Bringing the drone operators to the White House for brewskis.

Can't be helped when Obama continues those Bush/Cheney policies ... he's bound to do something right.

I think it’s a great win. This guy was very influential. And it’s a great psychological defeat for Al Qaeda.

I am not sure i believe this. I mean here we have an islamic favoring president desperately needing a boost in the polls and we have an islamic terrorist needing to disappear and take the heat off himself. No pictures and no proof to the public for confirmation. Sound familiar?
