The grumpy naysayers are clueless as to how important something like this is for our side.

Hope your son has a safe and successful tour of duty. Everyone over there is a hero in my book.

Possibly the brains, hopefully the brains.
Well done the guys who did it.
A very handy way to remove the brains.

I am so glad it was handled by Special Forces "the old fashioned way", and not by a radio control airplane.

I can understand not prolonging "getting rid of the body", so as not to let them(muslims) use it as a shrine. But this was "way to fast". I'm sure his saudi arabian family will be upset..... If not, then there's something up!
I'm sorry, I don't always believe the gov't and what it says, or the news for that matter.
I never knew DNA could be processed so fast....

It probally was him, hopefully, better proof will be brought forward.

Muslim tradition for burials tends to favor doing it soon. Quite understandable, considering the climates that most of them live in.

"Burial rituals should normally take place as soon as possible "
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_funeral

We'll see now: did "THEY" lose a Leader or gain a Martyr?

(Just stating the obvious. I'm glad to see him gone)

FWIW..the pics of OBL dead body are out there online,I've seen them,I won't post the pic here because of sensitivity issues.

..all I can say is..the head was somewhat distorted by the gunshot,but it really is OBLs' dead body.

He's dead.!

But here we go again...

I also won't link it, but do a google on "dead bin laden photo is a fake", and check out the first hit that comes up.
It shows a "reasonable" (true or not) group of three photos and how the final one has been faked.

I'm lovin' this...

Of course the likelyhood is that no photographs have actually been released through official channels, so the provenance of some faked amateur snaps on the tinternet remains unknown.

You mean the backlash for the backlash? If the idiot had not done what he did, he wouldn't have had to spend the last 10 years of his life in hiding only to be shot down. If the idiots don't learn and one wants to step up and be the new leader of Al Qaeda and take out some more innocents, guess what? He'll get to spend the rest of his life running from the US military too. For us to do anything else, is to invite them to run rampant with their terrorism.

Will go nicely with his well earned Nobel Peace Prize.....and of course the woven Oak leaves will be of gold leaf on gold stems. Only proper for the champion of the common man.
