Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden dead: U.S. officials


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Osama bin Laden is dead and his body has been recovered by U.S. authorities, U.S. officials said on Sunday night.

President Barack Obama was to make the announcement shortly that after searching in vain for bin Laden since he disappeared in Afghanistan in late 2001, the Saudi-born extremist is dead.

kathi2010's analysis:
Maybe we could buy the compound where Bin laden was killed and build a Christian church there. If not there, how about a block over. Do you think anyone would mind?

Will this be positive or

Will this be positive or negative in our fight against terrorism? Will the terrorists be demoralized and give up or emboldened because they have a new martyr?

I'm not sure, but I'm sure

I'm not sure, but I'm sure obama will take all the credit....my thoughts are that he's been dead for some time already. And i find this really coincidental timing with the obama administration, because as you know, Washington does nothing without an agenda, i.e.(never let a good crisis go to waste) .If anything it will bolster hatred toward the U.S. by Muslims. But it really doesn't matter, the spirit of terror is still in the world and we know the Truth of Gods Word.
***Update to my comment*** Obama stated " This operation was carried out today 5/01/11 " Now, before he appeared on U.S. television i was watching Al Jazeera and one of their reporters in Pakistan said this strike happened a week ago. More "smoke and mirrors"???

Boogie Man

I agree Grafted -I suspect he has been dead a while and they have just been waiting for a good time to put on a show. They reported that his body was dumped at sea - very suspicious. I think they shoud have layed him out for display like they did the pope.

After 10 years, this is pretty big news. I don't know why, but I'm a bit suspicious of the timing... Maybe I've seen too many movies :)

Osama bin Laden now knows the truth.

Pray for our soldiers as Islam will protest.

Listening to the President's

Listening to the President's speech, I'm struck by how many times am I hearing "I ordered", "I decided", "I determined"... Nothing new here from the campaigner in chief, but it's in bad taste, in my opinion.

Just had a thought....would

Just had a thought....would this be the excuse for "terrorist" (whoever they might be) to detonate dirty bombs inside the U.S. ??? Some analyst's say the devices are already inside of our country.

I also was struck

This news doesnt change anything for me but I was also struck by how he made it sound that everything played according to his(obama)agenda. The me and I's were too prevelant in his speech. Yes I truly do believe this is geared to his campaign to presidency. And the sad thing is many are asleep and will give it too him again because they believe in the smoke and mirrors magic they see. The hand is quicker than the eye..........

I totally agree with Mr.

I totally agree with Mr. Henry and Kingskid, I was "put aside" by the number of times he said "I directed", "I ordered"...
I also was immediately suspicious and am relieved that so many others here are as well. Shall we call it discernment? I believe OBL has been dead for quite some time through the efforts of the Bush administration. The fact BHO is taking credit for it now, when he is "lacking" in the polls is convenient. I think the rather quick "burial at sea" is very odd...when Saddam Hussein's sons were killed, they posted pictures (I know it sounds morbid) but it serves as proof. Hitler's corpse was never found, leaving people to speculate for years what happened to him. As GraftedGentile hinted, the conflicting reports also give one reason to doubt.
Truth is always better than falsehood. I pray the truth will be made known. The victim's families of 9-11 deserve justice, not lies and smoke and mirrors.

dont believe BHO' s lies

I was still active duty back in the early to mid 2000's and I heard from a reputable source in Delta Force that they got him in 2002. All I know is by the verbage in the news reporting there is NO way these things happened even remotely close to how they describe them, so in other words like everything else from BHO they are LIES. And your insight to Husseins sons and the supposed burial at sea are VERY perceptive...

osama bin laden died long time ago!!!

check out this link!! http://www.welfarestate.com/binladen/funeral/

why didn't they post pics of him like they did sadaam's sons??? the so called "retaliation of terroristic groups" will be the excuse for another 9/11. remember the article that was possted a while ago reporting that osama has 100 plus bombs in america? now the "terrorsts" angered at osama's death will attack the USA from within.

We should be at our highest

We should be at our highest alert right now. Knowing how long OBL and his planners took to plan and rehearse the 911 attacks, does anyone not believe this evil man had not planned something very special for us all in the event of his untimely demise? We just triggered a chain of events that more than likely can not be stopped. I pray that our Lord and Savior protects the innocents.

Crowd observations

Does anyone else think the crowd gathering at the White House was strange? I mean, it looked like people sent buses to pick up young people from the nearest college. All young, and they gathered very quickly when you look at when the news was released. It smelled like a presidential campaign move to me.

The other thing that bothered me was the celebration itself, as in crowd celebration. It was such an Arab response to me; we don't do that, do we?, here in the U.S.? Yes, we're glad he finally got his due and we celebrate amongst ourselves in our homes/businesses, but that made me feel funny. All of it combined, I guess. In NYC, I can see it being a spontaneous, hit the street thing because of the sheer tragedy that struck in their city. But it didn't feel right to me the way it went down in Washington. I didn't see families of Pentagon victims...I saw young Obama fans. Just me?

I know what you mean. The

I know what you mean. The crowd reminded me of gatherings in the ME, as well. Americans gather after sporting events spontaneously, and Georgetown University is nearby, so I suppose it is not a leap to assume that it was an unplanned event of young people.
What worries me, is that all of a sudden, people are praising this administration. Gah, something just doesn't feel right about all this.

Morbid

I, too, was uncomfortable seeing the young people cheer about someone's death, even OBL's. Think about it... these 20 year olds were 10 when 9/11 occurred!

I think it's just another display of the fallen nature we all have within us.

Just another thought

These were the very young people that BHO has targeted for votes. I wonder if the delay was a way he could "incite" a crowd at this time of night at these locations through facebook and twitter? This is his target market and who better to uplift without checking politcal background the president for the second term.

I was thinking the same thing.

They showed the SAME footage during the night. The crowds did not swell. They showed the same footage and it didn't seem that anymore people were coming out. It could have been staged. Would not surprise me in the least.

All too weird

Agree with everyone. The timing, how it was carried out, burying his body at sea almost immediately. Something smells fishy. I'm about to land at JFK. Will be interesting to wander over to the WTC to see the crowd. We live in interesting times.

Think of THIS possibility

What if they hurriedly buried him so no one could check his DNA and compare it to Obama's? Every time i see either of their pictures, I am even more convinced that they are somehow related. But what would motivate Obama to kill his relative? Perhaps campaign initiatives with the "greater cause of pushing Islam" is what was behind all this. You know - Obama's constant efforts to Islamicize America. Jihad from the inside. And he, along with his liberal allies, is doing a great job. So if he didn't do something drastic to "up" his ratings, there would have been an end to all this.

Do NOT believe the lies

I served 20 years with The Marines and was in Recon. I am an expert on Navy SEALS tactics and this type of operation. It would take me 2 hours to explain all the descrepancies in the news but the bottom line is this is nothing but yet another BHO SCAM.!!!

Where is the proof???

Still no photos of OBL's dead body????? I figured they would at least have some faked garbage out there by this point? Its probably against muslim tradition.

This Phrase when back masked clearly says "Thank you satan" note how many times he says it smiling and then thousands repeat it over and over again, praising satan. Some dont believe in back masking but I have studied it for decades and it IS very real.!!!
