    I love how Fox News can't even spell his name right.

      Several US representatives have reportedly confirmed that he is. Still waiting for Obama's announcement.

        Suggested headlines for Fox News tomorrow morning:

        "In an effort to revitalize languishing 2012 re-election, Obama eliminates Bin Laden"

        "Did Obama really help capture Osama?"

        "Where's the long form death certificate?!"

        "Obama Traumatizes Family" -- (More relevant if you know where they found Bin Laden.)

        "The Troops capture Bin Laden, despite efforts by Obama to reduce their numbers!"

              As I'm sure you've heard, large crowds are gathering in front of the White House. Being a GW student living 4 blocks from the White House, I immediately put down my books and ran, along with hundreds of other students, down Pennsylvania Avenue to celebrate. It was a surreal feeling to see so many American united.

                Bout god damn time. According to a CNN blog it was the Navy SEALS who killed Osama.

                  Not just retaliation from terrorist groups but Pakistan is going to be pissed. Apparently they weren't informed of the raid before hand. Imagine what we'd do if another country ran a human operation inside our borders. We'd be pissed.

                  At least people have a sense of closure. Unfortunately it's not likely to suppress future terrorism. Although many people seem to think this is a huge event, it remains to be seen how impactful it really is.

                    Pakistan wasn't informed because they knew damn well where he was and weren't telling us. If we had informed Pakistan, we wouldn't have gotten Bin Laden. Apparently they aren't as good at playing both sides as they thought.

                      Of course. I wasn't implying that we ought to have informed them. However, whether or not they play both sides, we formally treat them as a sovereign nation. So they've got the right to be pissed. It's unlikely anything big will come of that. I was just mentioning it.

                        I noticed that President Karzai (Afghanistan) had a very rapid "I told you so" reaction, basically saying "see, we told you guys he wasnt here. we told you he was in Pakistan. We told you that Pakistan is 'terrorist friendly', but nooooooo, nobody ever listens to us. So get out of our country, if you dont mind."

                          I dont think Osama got killed, I think that he had already been killed...years ago.

                          I think this annoucement of his death was just saved for a special occasion....uhmm lets say, when the American people is starts losing faith in their goverment......2012 elections, here we come !

                            Or, he was killed yesterday by a team of Navy SEALs, his body was identified through DNA testing, and he was buried at sea.

                            But yeah, your thing is totally possible too.

                              Well, it took a while, but he's finally dead. Good riddance!

                              Now can we leave Afghanistan?
