Ain't gonna end anything, but good news all the same.

Great weekend for Obama, he gets to announce Bin Laden is dead and belittle Trump in public all in the space of a couple of days.

Good news indeed.  Let it not be said I refuse to give Obama credit when it's deserved.

Now, if he'd just use this as an excuse to end the stupid pointless wars, that'd be even better. 

Plus, I'd like to see him use the same relentless determination to bring to justice all the devious underhanded bastards responsible for the dire financial straits in which we presently find ourselves.  Go get 'em while you're on this hot streak, Obama!

Put the wet blanket away.  This is a great accomplishment.  I hope we can now crush the rest of their leadership, including al Zawahiri.  They've got to be in a panic now about how much we know and may have learned.

I love how, already, someone has faked a photo, it has spread around the net and been proven a fake. No photos have been released by the White House or those who pulled off this mission. That decision will come in the future. I believe there is no way to avoid releasing photos and video in the end, but the consequences of that could be fuel for martyrdom. And in the end, there will be those who refuse to believe, just like the birther crap. What a wonderful, cynical world we live in.

Except for the empire thing, I agree with you. The celebrations are reminiscent of the dancing in the streets in Islamic countries after 9/11--that was low class, and at the time I remember hoping that we would be above that kind of thing were we in their shoes.

Yes, it's only a symbolic act and no, it won't stop terrorist attacks, but fuck yeah, it sure feels good.  I do wish they wouldn't have dumped his body in the sea.  I would rather have him buried at ground zero with full honors in a casket he would share with a 400 pound pig.

Killed and buried at sea, already? No, he may be dead but this was a timed release for publicity. He may have been dead for years, he may still be living in Crawford Tx. This didn't happen last night.

I think Obama misspoke when he said the operation happened yesterday.  The first news I heard was that it went down almost a week ago, but they were waiting for DNA tests to come back for positive confirmation before going public.

The guy had a lot of money, so it probably belonged to him or a shill.  Apparently, the compound was located in a neighborhood populated with retired Pakistani military.  Someone certainly has some splainin' to do.

It was tweeted live from the village

Edit: the Tweets

Apparently an English speaker in Abbottabad started tweeting about helicopters and gunfire at 1am (local) on Sunday.

I saw and read that earlier.  I do remember though last night catching commentary before the POTUS's speach that Obama was waiting on DNA reports, and that a bombing had taken him out.  Wife remembers it as well.

Relax Scotty, and don't let your wishful thinking get the better of you.  After action reports are often jumbled.  As far as narratives go, this one is very, very positive for Obama, although I don't think the glow will last until election time (and probably not even close).
