Osama Bin Laden Is Dead

U.S. has has his body in custody. President will address his death.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011...den-dead-obama

Quote:
Osama bin Laden, the criminal mastermind behind al-Qaida and the world's most sought-after terrorist since the attacks of 11 September 2001, has been killed by a US operation, President Barack Obama will announce late on Sunday night.

Osama's body is in possession of the US, having been killed in Pakistan as the result of a US special forces and CIA operation, according to the first leaks of reporting from the US television networks.

President Obama is to make a highly unusual Sunday night live statement to announce the news, around 11pm eastern time.

The news comes eight years to the day that President George Bush declared "Mission accomplished" in Iraq – but it is now the unlikely figure of Barack Obama is the commander in chief who announces the final triumph over the focus of so much international attention.

This is a turning point in the global "war on terrorism" that has been waged since 9/11 – and the news will reverberate around the world.

Re: Osama Bin Laden Is Dead

I would have thought he would have died of old age considering how long it took to find him. Looks like the Pakistani's were sheltering him. Guess we will be fighting another sub-war.....

Re: Osama Bin Laden Is Dead

His body isn't in custody,my news says that He gotten buried at the sea and so does the news from the same site you're sharing.

Re: Osama Bin Laden Is Dead

regardless of all the conspiracies and stuff probably surrounding this; I dont really care about bin laden. Killing him doesnt change what happened on 9/11. Lets have our government kill bad inner city schools, college tuitions and gas prices

Obama himself said they had custody but I guess they quickly buried him and such.

Re: Osama Bin Laden Is Dead

Well, that only took 10 years... but I suppose I should be impressed. The most powerful and technologically advanced military and spy forces in the world were able to find a bearded, head scarf/turban thingy wearing Muslim in a country of bearded, head scarf wearing Muslims.

Interestingly, the comes only a few days after the US launched a missile strike which attempted to take out Gaddafi, though it only got his son.

Obama mad?

Re: Osama Bin Laden Is Dead

So... no trial or even autopsy by independent entities? It's just bullet to the head and toss the corpse at the sea?

I'm with Darth-Nero, something does not sound right.

Re: Osama Bin Laden Is Dead

I read about the op itself and I find it eerie how similar it was to the first lvls of COD Black ops. Oh and congrats Obama, you just got re elected. Yeah, there is nothing strange about this at all.

it seems more like a season opener for 24, which subsequently has Jack killing more terrorists and finding that bin laden is actually alive

Re: Osama Bin Laden Is Dead

I imagine they'll release photos to prove its not shenanigans sooner or later.


If they didn't actually kill him it would be stupid as all Osama would have to do is release a photo of him laughing at the newspaper or something. Saying someone is dead when they're not isn't exactly foolproof bragging.
