Ding Dong Osama Bin Laden is DEAD!!! (w/ image)

Nearly 10 years later, we have a moment of national catharsis. President Obama last night put in words the sentiment which the spontaneous, jubilant crowds outside the White House and at Ground Zero expressed with triumphant roars and cheers: “Justice has been done.”

Justice is not always swift. But it is patient, and its reach can be long--in this case long enough to cut through years and over continents to deliver its final judgment.

The details will filter out in the coming hours, days, and weeks. But this much we know: “A small team of Americans carried out the operation with extraordinary courage and capability,” the president told the country, adding that, “after a firefight, they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body and buried it at sea.” It is viscerally gratifying that this was a firefight, not a missile fired from a ship miles away at sea or from a robot plane circling far overhead, or something similarly impersonal. This was personal.

I saw that on a certain ex-blogger's FB page this morning. It's a good one.

No matter what Obama says, bin Laden's not dead until Donald Trump see's his death certificate. (Long form only please!)

Just think-after enduring BUDS training where you are sandy, cold wet and sore from holding a small boat over you head with a guy on a bullhorn yelling in your ear for weeks, and after seeing so many friends die, that you were the one that got that forehead shot. I hope they mounted his dead ass 'on the grill' of one of the helicopters on the way home! What a night!

Is it true all AQ eyes were fixed on the wedding proceedings when the Seals busted in?

I heard they were playing "Hungry Hungry Hippos" and just lost all focus. Happens to the best of us.

My intelligence tells me that they were playing TROUBLE for bong hits.
bin Laden had just struck a match to his 121st hit(after rolling sixes) when a Navy Seal dotted his eye.
Woody's record is safe and the devil is dead. It's a win-win!

I don't think UBL's death happened the way it was originally portrayed. There are too many holes in the story with circumstances changing daily. I think this was used as political capital at a time when Obama's popularity was at an all time low. Think about it. Buried him at sea? After washing him, wrapping him in white linen, and seeing to it that it happened within 24 hours? Really? First there was live feed and then there wasn't? He lived in a compound that large with walls and concertina wire and armed roving sentries and no one knew until recently? He may have fired this one off too soon. Keep in mind he may have addressed this issue (which is suspect)and the birth certificate issue (which is at least suspect) but he has yet to effectively address the economy issue. THAT is the one that will kill his presidency. The spike in approval ratings we just saw will be short lived. An aberration that will quickly subside. He will now start to pull American soldiers out of the middle east and close Gitmo while stating "See? I'm keeping my campaign promises!" His motives are as transparent as they are laughable.

Give me a fucking break. I can't believe how many lunatic conspiracy whacks there are around here. Can't even be proud for America can you?

Oh I am proud of America. I am just not very proud of the tricks of this president. (a president for whom I voted I might add) He has proven to be just another lame ass politician that took advantage of the people when they were down on the last lame ass president. I love this country. I fought for her. I am just sick of what these low life politiciabs are doing to her. I am also sick of those who support these politicians regardless of what they do just because they have an "R" or a "D" behind their names.
