    Osama Bin Laden is Dead

    Just got this in.

    It looks like it's real.

    He's gone- will provide links as things develop.

    Although not officially announced.....

    Whoop-dee-doo.

    His death accomplishes nothing. It doesn't justify anything.

    Re: Osama Bin Laden is Dead

    ^^^ It's for real.

    http://www.newsday.com/news/nation/a...1.2850680?qr=1


    Al-Qaida mastermind Osama bin Laden is dead and the United States has his body, a person familiar with the developments says.

    President Barack Obama is expected to make that announcement from the White House late Sunday night.

    The person spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to speak ahead of the president....


    Actually- good riddance to bad news AFAIC.

    Now let's move on.

    It doesn't? So a guy kills 3,000 Americans, wounds another 6,000 and causes millions in damages and we're supposed to just let him go on?

    Well it does help that we killed him, but I feel that whatever decisions were made to take these actions could have been done years ago.

    LOL. Obama will probably win in 2012, but not for that reason.

    Presidential elections have different issues every time. It was foreign policy in 2004. It was the economy in 2008. Nobody would have or will bring up Obama being "tough on terror" in 2012.

    To hell with politicizing this.. I'm glad that nasty lil f*cker is dead. Period.

    H/T to the men and women in service who made this happen. Glad they all appear to have made it home safely.

    "The most dangerous myth is the demagoguery that business can be made to pay a larger share, thus relieving the individual. Politicians preaching this are either deliberately dishonest, or economically illiterate, and either one should scare us...
    Only people pay taxes, and people pay as consumers every tax that is assessed against a business."
