Obama offs Osama!

We can congratulate President Obama on a job well done. It was a dangerous and chilling mission with our guys landing inside the compound where Bin Laden was living then killing him when he refused to surrender.

They removed his body and dropped it at sea, which is a bit of a disappointment and I’m not sure why we had to show such respect to his dead body. How much respect did those thousands of people get that were burned to death in the towers, or had to jump to their deaths?

But all in all American are celebrating the end of an evil man and look forward to some exciting pictures of the actual conquest.

So far our Muslim citizens are also celebrating according to the Chicago Tribune. One American Muslim put it in perspective when he said, “Laden is only one individual, but the symbolism of it is crucial.”

Orange Juice dot com reports that even CAIR ( The terrorist linked group) is making a public statement that approves of the killing and will have a public statement later Monday. . Here is Cair’s statement.

“We join our fellow citizens in welcoming the announcement that Osama bin Laden has been eliminated as a threat to our nation and the world through the actions of American military personnel. As we have stated repeatedly since the 9/11 terror attacks, bin Laden never represented Muslims or Islam. In fact, in addition to the killing of thousands of Americans, he and Al Qaeda caused the deaths of countless Muslims worldwide. We also reiterate President Obama’s clear statement tonight that the United States is not at war with Islam.”

Even though many of us do not care much for Obama’s policies we can join in rejoicing over this achievement, which of course, had, it gone wrong would have been devastating to his ambitious political goals.

      Look here now! Are you telling me that I won't get to have those 72 virgins when I become a martyr? Oh well, in 60 years I haven't had one yet!

      I find this fascinating. What purpose would Obama have in doing what with the body, hiding it? Pretending it was Osama when it wasn't. I just don't get it. Wouldn't this be the ultimate conspiracy? Guess I'm just dumb, I even believe Arabs blew up the twin towers.

      Opinion Duck, I agree with you...wake up people! how convenient to set it at sea...or should i say how unrealistic... I believe if the Pres. said "Elvis is back...but oh he is on a 60 year cruise" we would believe him! did any of you notice the timing? oh my cannot one of you publish a work that challenges the hype? I would myself but I expected you experts and constant political writers to get a little down to earth.... Fox is sold out...has been for a while but you don't have too as well.... or has obama really won? are we all as dumb as he hoped?

      Hopefully Bin Laden's death brings some long awaited redemption to the families of the 9-11 victims. Nothing can bring those people back and the death of one man seems so trival in light of all the life lost on that fateful morning in New York. As a country, it must be our continued resolve that those people did indeed not die in vain. For most of them, death came amid chaos and destruction which must have seemed like the end of the world...for them it was. We must remain vigilant so that no other man or group of men ever bring such evil to our shores again. WB

      I wish they had not dropped him in the sea, but maybe they will release some photos and put all the conspiracies to bed.

      It's not often we all get to Celebrate the Death of such an Evil Murdering Individual. He and Hitler both died on May 1...Very symbolic. Hitler was May 1st. 1945 and now Bin Laden. Thanks for sharing MsLizzie.

      Probably another silly rumor. I rather doubt that the Bin Ladens were PERSONAl friends of Bush's. Bush is a well known political figure and has many acquaintances and huge multi ethnic family.

      Osama Ben Laden - who's wealthy family was escorted out of the unitedstates after 911 while everyone else could not fly because they were personal friends of the Bush family.

      strange bedfellows

      I'm not sure about that. I think he was in on the planning and very much wanted and needed this boost to his sliding popularity. This will raise his polling numbers, and if it had failed, it would have been suppressed for a long time.

      ms, The military did it all. He was presented with a yes or no question with explanation. If he said no, it would have been leaked. H
