Great job by JSOC, but unfortunately doesn't do much for the WOT, now being fueled in the MEA through inaction in the name of "democracy" (when it's convenient) or plain 180-degree-wrong bull-headed actions (in the name of "humanitarian efforts") by "Chief Leader from Behind".
I am surprised OBL didn’t escape through a tunnel.
That would be my biggest concern going in.
Those people tunnel like crazy.
Detainees at Gitmo gave this information?
Wow, proof that Waterboarding actually works! Or maybe they just turned on a 24-hour long tape of Hillary speeches and cackles.
Dirka, Dirka Boys!
And what did we do to Afghanistan for harboring him?
PISSED me off to hear we “treated the body under full Islamic custom” and “buried him at sea”. Hope that means the Seals pissed on his corpse and they tossed him over the fantail with the rest of the trash....
OBL hasn’t been seen for years and all of a sudden he exposes himself in in a high profile compound and then is quickly buried at sea? Something doesn’t smell right in Denmark.
I sincerely hope that Elvis and Amelia weren’t hurt in the attack...
How many times had Osama visited Obama at the White House?
Ted Kennedy had the following comment:
If you will recall, the official position for any high level kills was that the body would be prominently photographed and the body put on display so that the bad guys followers and the common people would be able to see that the bad guy was dead and would never bother them again. Only after this would the body be disposed of.
They did this with Saddams sons and torture buddies; they did this with al-Zarkawi, why not Osama?
This is too convenient, and, comes at a time that Obama needs a boost in the polls to deflect the birthers, the economy and the daily sky rocketing oil prices.
Give me a break. Buried at sea? And before the official announcement? This just reeks of HOAX.
“but unfortunately doesn’t do much for the WOT....”
I disagree. Terrorist organizations require paymasters, planners and operational leaders among others to carry out attacks. OBL was not only a Saudi paymaster but also a planning and operations leader. His removal is tremendously significant.
Who pays for million dollar compounds?
Wonder if they blew that luxury compound to smithereens? If they didn’t, they should. It was probably built with the money we give to Pakistan. We seriously need to stop this overseas ad. The money is never used for what it’s suppose to be used for and the dictators and despots always end up getting fat and rich off our tax dollars.
This is the end of a big proponent of suicide martyrdom. he spent the whole last 10 yeas trying to avoid being a martyr. All the time he was living in a mansion while the suckers who followed him in the path of jihad were living in caves and getting themselves blown up voluntarily.
Ask the families of the 9-11 victims if their loved ones were given full burial rights by the terrorists. Is our Muslim in chief going to offer special prayers at his mosque on Friday? I thought Obama would give Bin Laden a state funeral conducted by Rev. Wright. I could hope that some of the Navy Seals gave Bin Laden's corpse a ham sandwich for his journey to hell.
It's not beyond the range of possibility....depending on where he was "buried".
