I know it’s a bit unlikely that they’ll come out with the identity of the soldier who actually got the shot, but I really would pee myself if it’s an atheist lesbian.

i don’t know where you found this, but i love you SO MUCH right now. : ]

Wow, Jen, That’s really unlike you. Not posting a source? What about us blind deaf illiterates living in caves on far away planets?~R~

Jen, this is on the first page of a Google search for “Osama Bin Laden dead.” Thought you ought to know.

Why can’t -I- have a cool President?? *pouts*And my god, I never thought I’d be saying that in reference to America. HIGH FIVE USA!

Im pretty sure their are no atheist lesbian’s in either the Navy Seals o r Delta or Marine Recon for that matter as their are no women. On the other hand nothing says it couldn’t be a homosexual male soldier or seaman who is the ultimate bad mofo and put a round or seven in him.
May 2, 2011 at 8:58 AM
well actually no offical homosexuals are allowed in the US army until this summer due to new laws or somin

I can’t believe it takes 10 years to win against Bin Laden. I almost believe US vs Bin Laden was going to be a draw by stalemate.

1) I don’t think the death of any person, regardless what they have done, should ever be cause for celebration.2) This is not an achievement. It took nearly 10 years for the worlds greatest superpower to kill a man, who by now wasn’t even that relevant to anything. It’s vengence, but not an achievemnt (let alone justice).
May 2, 2011 at 4:50 PM
As sure as we can be in their saying the truth. That is, if you trust them, then you’d be pretty sure. But people looking for evidence are being called morons and idiots by people who apparently don’t need any kind of evidence apart from their word.
May 2, 2011 at 5:23 PM
you guys are idiots!!! he is not dead…and if he is, he died years ago in some dirty cave in the middle of the Sahara or something! you all believe they shot the most wanted man in the world, took no photographs and then decided to dump his body in the sea as a sign of respect!!! when did the U.S ever respect islam?!!!!

This made me laugh :D . But could someone please explain to me why Obama is taking the credit just cause he was in power when Osama was killed? I think it’s a fluke he was in power while this happened, it could have been anyone in office.

Obama did say he was going to go after Bin Laden in 2008, including in Pakistan (where Bin Laden actually was), over the objections of McCain. And don’t forget Bush’s shift from 2001, where Bin Laden was the “number one priority,” to 2002 when Bush said “I am truly not that concerned about him.”http://www.buzzflash.com/contr…

I’m not wringing my hands about Bin Laden being killed. However I am reminded of the following quote:”I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

I can’t get over this. The swinging neck-tie really ties it together.
May 2, 2011 at 8:38 PM
fyi: Obama didn’t make this macro, so no, he’s not taking credit.
May 3, 2011 at 1:14 AM
1) Thats nice. But far be it from you to deny the crabs at the bottom of the ocean their celebratory feast.2) Yes, it is. Obama could have just bombed the compound, everyone/thing in it, as well as the neighborhood. Instead he asked for the riskier, surgically precise operation that resulted in *1* civilian casualty (I dont consider her a civilian. Were I in her shoes, I would have killed myself if escape were impossible). The neighbors live blogged the thing, for fucks sake. Furthermore, it was not just a symbolic kill. They took *ALL* of his computer equipment, which is no doubt paydirt of pr0n and terrorist names/locations/ideas– info we dont have to torture for, info we dont have to wish we knew after a disaster. It should have been done faster, but it wasnt. Now its done. If you wanted it done faster, you should have done it yourself. You know, like what that group of Navy SEALs did. Or, you could have run for president in 2004 or 2008.I cant abide people sitting on their hands, running their mouths off at the people who actually get something done.
May 3, 2011 at 2:10 AM
Well… let’s go for atheist at least!
May 3, 2011 at 4:08 AM
Well.. he might still have been a homosexual–just not open about it… ;)

Although I don’t condone what Al Qaeda did (not even by a long shot) it’s interesting the parallelism we can draw between the celebrations in the Arab world when something bad happens in our side to the celebrations in Time’s Square with the death of a man…
May 3, 2011 at 7:44 AM
Bin Laden dead. I found my long-lost Chapstick®.It’s a Good Day.(Oh, and nice false equivalency there, Valverde. Good job. Your corporate masters must be pleased.)
