It is believed that Osama Bin Laden has been killed, according to nearly all major news media sources.
Obama is set to releaese a statement shortly. CNN has already confirmed dead as true.

(Frankly I don't know what to believe)

Wow...this is too much...I always figured he was dead all along! Imagine that!

It will be interesting when the details of the operation are publicized (if ever).
Seriously, though, did Obama really kick that door down?!?!? I'm frantically trying to find the video where he did that...

Hahahahaha man I was fooled for a second. I mean I figured it wasn't from the bin Laden statement but still.

Anyway, imagine being the guy that shot him. Something like a 25 million dollar prize?
As others are saying, this is essentially a symbolic victory and maybe a strategic leg-up. But the indoctrination of Eastern youth will continue and inevitably a new leader will show up in the crosshairs.

Osama Bin Laden has been killed !!!

Big fat hairy deal !!!! These people are like rats, the next one has already taken his place and revenge actions are already being planned.

Actualy, I quite embarassed by all the `Celebrations ´going on right now, I thought we were better than that, Remove the flags and it looks like down town Egypt, Libyia, Sierra Lione, Ivory Coast, Saudia Arabia, Syria..........

Here´s a bit more food for thought, does anybody think that the job just got easierer for those on the ground ??

Now that Laden has gone off to his virgins, does it mean we can bring the troops home ?? , of course they will have to make a quick stop-over in Libiya, can´t have all those service members building up thier frequent flyer miles for nothing. Finnish one illigal war action, just to get involved in another..........

^totally agreed, but look at it through the crazed American eyes, someone who (may) have planned the attack during 9.11 has finally been killed, not strategic, but the feeling that we did it is a major morale boost.

Moral Boost ?? crazed American eyes ???

How about easyly led by the nose, Brainwashed, or just plain, Don´t have a freaking clue !!

Just been watching the news, seeing the celebrations in the streets over Bin Laden, I have never been so ashamed to be an American.
Celebrations !!?? It has cost the lives of 2441 brave souls to date, of which 1485 have been American service members, 160 this year so far, all for 1 man.
Celebrate ? I will when Obama comes out and says `Mission Accomplished ´, our troops are comming home, starting right f*cking now !

There´s a Morale boost for you !!, bring tears to those crazy eyes !! Maybe even get some to pull thier heads out of thier fourth point of contact.

Agree entirely. I posted similar items on Facebook last night only to be attacked for saying them.
We seem to have relapsed into that post-9/11 fanatical patriotism that caused the problems we face today.

We need to remember that while we may have gotten this one guy, the means by which we did so has directly/indirectly killed and displaced over a million civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan. I realize that we did not invade either of these companies JUST to get bin Laden...but our goals should never be more important than the lives of innocents. The hypocrisy in all this is obvious: they kill civilians and we invade in retaliation because killing civilians is, in our eyes, immoral...only to kill civilians in the process (and many times more of them then were killed on 9/11).

NATO is now talking about putting boots on the ground in Libya and the US will likely follow, despite saying otherwise (then again, we were only there to directly protect civilians...not targeting Gaddafi-loyalists with Predator drones. Oops!).

...and anyone else think the "burial at sea" was the most idiotic thing we could ever do? That's going to open windows for conspiracy theorists til the end of time! \"Watch your language\", even I am still slightly skeptical...after all, I see no body. Believing something just because the government and media are saying it goes against my moral fiber. I want to see with my own eyes before passing judgment. I don't have reason to believe that he's not dead, however.

Definitely. I was almost in tears when I saw the crowds in Time Square chanting "USA USA" and burning effigy's elsewhere (I'll have to find the vid again)...how is that different from when "they" go into the streets and chant and burn flags? I don't care who it is or what they've done...celebrating the murder of a human being is offensive to me and hopefully the world at large (from what I'm seeing on BBC and Al Jazeera, it IS offensive to the rest of the world). I'm not a religious person and don't like to bring it up in arguments, but how many Christians do you think were among these groups celebrating? Is killing not against the commandments of their "G0D"? Not only do they allow it, they glorify it...then say "Islam" is the religion of death and violence.

@Spl. Durkee, got your back 1000% on your last post, guess there is a bit of truth to the old saying, Great minds think alike Wink

My second post is my status on FB, since posting it been getting nothing but compliments, shares, support and back up, but then again most of my friends are either former, fire team, squad, platoon, company, team, squadron mates, or thier wives, girlfriends, family members, friends.
No accounting for good taste or intelligence, don´t let the `Hard of independent thought ´get you down, those that are meant to lead, Lead ! the rest are followers.

As far as tossing the body overboard, no matter what was done, conspiracy theories are going to get started, matter of fact it is already going on.......

1 May 1945, Adolf Hitler confirmed dead, 1 May 2011 Bin Laden, confirmed dead, both enemies of America, both Starters of War with America, Both the only persons in Modern History to Declare war officialy with the United States, coincedence ???
( That should cause some interesting responses Laughing )

The problem is that we're so focused on fighting people, when we should be fighting the ideal. One way we can go about doing that is by not giving them reason to hate us. They don't hate us for our liberties and freedoms...they don't hate us because we have democracy...h3ll, even religion takes a back seat on this one...

...they hate us because of what we have done to them...their friends that we've killed (yes, prior to 9/11 we were out there killing Muslims, shocking!)...the cities we've destroyed...the effigies we've burned...and lives we've ruined. If we let moderate Muslims have a voice, they won't need to detonate bombs and fire guns to get our attention.

Extremist: (noun)-a person who goes to extremes, especially in political matters.

You don't think us invading countries over extremist political matters (ie: the need to spread democracy) is extreme? Extremists are the few people on this earth that care enough about a cause to do something. MLK was an extremist. Gandhi was an extremist. Bush was an extremist. Bin Laden was an extremist.

To define an entire genre of people who fight for a belief and interest that you know little about (Islam) as "extremists" is a bit premature. You have to think about the root causes of violent out-lashes. The years of bombing civilians with US planes that led up to 9/11...the outright crusades by government-backed corporations in Africa...there is much more at play. Extremism has to be created. It's not one sided.

I got some bad feedback yesterday from a number of people bashing on me for having alternative views on life. Honestly, going against the grain is the one thing keeping me sane right now. It's easy to just flip on Fox or CNN and nod along as we murder to the sound of trumpets and cheers...but it takes a broader, alternate viewpoint to see how grim the situation really is. I may have ideals that others may object to...but at the end of the day, I can stand confidently and say that I have sovereignty over my mind and body.

I hope that isn't a conspiracy theory -____- my mom and sister are the only skeptics I need to deal with, don't add on to them.

Here are some idiotic Facebook posts from my classmates. Copy and pasted, stupidity et al.

"the best way to end the weekend is with are troops coming home!! ‎5/1/11 we won the war remember it" - 16 likes

"Who is Osama Bin Laden..? Wtf. Where have I been?" - 15 likes

"Obama is dead ! Just kidding its Osama one letter difference... makes you think is the leader of our nation a terrorist ?" - 19 likes

It's also sad to hear how many of my peers who think that just bombing that whole region would be a solution
.
Aaaaaaaanyway... stupidity aside, this Wikipedia article is a good summary of what happened in the raid. Also, my friend who is a Navy Corpsman stationed in Great Lakes, IL says that his base is at FPCON Charlie ("terrorist activity imminent").

Does anyone else think that [nsfw] this photo looks totally shopped? Pretty sure a double tap to the head would look a little more...exploded.

Yessur, it was a fake. Simple blending...though whoever shopped it did a great job. The wounds in the picture certainly appear to be consistent to that of the reported cause of death. Heads don't explode like they do in movies. 5.56 rounds tend to either enter and exit cleanly or enter and disintegrate against the opposite interior of the skull.


Looks like Coronada, Pendleton, and surrounding subsidiary installations are on FPCON Bravo as of yesterday.

This statement was issued today from LAX:
"LAX is always on alert given that U.S. transportation systems are of interest to terrorist organizations. While we don’t have any direct threat as a result of recent events, we will continue to provide infrastructure protection and high visibility law enforcement and security protection to the many passengers who travel through the airport every day. We will continue to monitor global events and stay in contact with our federal partners as the situation evolves. We encourage the public to report any suspicious activity at LAX to Airport Police at (310) 646-7911. If you see something, say something."

I was saying a few weeks ago that I would not be surprised if we faced a terrorist attack on US soil from a Gaddafi-funded cell...and now Al Qaeda has further reason to strike...so it's my opinion that an attack is imminent. I can only assume that it would be on the West coast as that seems to be the most strategic choice following an attack on the East coast.

Either way, I've got my go-bag and medbag ready and my portable HAM is charged. I won't hesitate to respond as a volunteer if an attack occurred.

"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."

Sadly it is already on the net, and making the circulation, the follow on comments are so insanely stupid, ignorant, pitiful they are not worth repeating. ( and before anybody suggests it, I did not start it, I actualy got a headache when I first read it )

Ha! I was literally just about to post that quote.

Now we ovulate, copulate and over-populate
Never stop to think about the things that we were taught to hate
Realize that the system can't exist without belief,
Appreciate your true potential, untwist your mouth and speak
