He was in Pakistan! OMG. Who think this is also where Iran's WMD's are hiding?

No, seriously, it doesn't matter "whose administration"! What matters is that wicked evil man is finally dead!

I guess we'll have to wait and see if/what repercussions there will be.
Right on the money, Bonnie.

That's a great thought. God Bless our troops.

Just heard GWB's statement to Obama. It was quite good.

Yeah, the President made sure to let us know Pakistan assisted us, but I can't help but feel they could have given us a lot more "help" a lot sooner! But, I'm just going to be thankful that we finally got him!

I read it was a CIA team flying in on helicopters. Bin Laden was shot in the head, his son was killed as was a third unidentified man. Bin Laden's body was recovered. I'm sure you will be glad to know that the body is being "handled in accordance with Islamic traditions". Personally, I'd prefer the old Pershing treatment: stitch his remains up in a pigskin before throwing it in a pit.

Are you serious, PTM? Didn't Obama say in his speech that UBL wasn't a muslim, that he was a murderer of muslims?

I think they need to display it like Saddam's sons but I don't think that will happen now. There is a photo, Pakistani TV has already broadcast it.

Also, I heard the op was carried out by Navy Seals. I also heard that a woman was killed that UBL or his son was using as a shield.

It's great seeing the crowds outside the White House and at Times Square.

The AP has released the photo of UBL, here is a link to the article.

Graphic Image.
