OT: Presidential Announcement

Apparently in the next few minutes President Obama is holding a news conference and is not revealing the topic in advance other than it has to do with national defense.

I've heard a couple rumors that we have either captured or killed Osama bin Laden. We'll see if my sources turn out to be correct. Tune in to your local or national news if this is of any interest to you.

    Haven't we killed this guy a dozen times or so? Maybe we really did this time! Can we take work off tomorrow for this? Big thanks to all the men and women who fight for this country! Thank You!

    Hearing this news is reminding me of the very day when the planes hit the twin towers in New York. I hope any retaliation will be snuffed out. Any way I feel a little better. I hope we continue to eliminate these terrorists. I know we haven't won anything as far as alkida.

    Has to be true. Wiki list's him dead. Wiki is never wrong! So can the 50 million dollar reward money be taken off America's debt? A good starting point. Lets start erasing the debt with Osama's body!
  • BOWHUNRBOWHUNR Posts: 1,482
    I'm stupid happy he is gone. We have lost far too many of our own because of what HE started. The part that concerns me is that he will be the radical Muslim's greatest martyr ever. I fear friends that this may get worse before it gets better.

    Can't wait to see the headlines tomorrow morning. I was just going through some really old newspapers that my father saved - one related to WWII. Tomorrow's paper will definitely be placed with his collection.

    Amen!!! ;)

    Reading this news and watching the press coverage bring me back to September 11th. I remember how mad I was when the news showed people in the middle east cheering and burning our flags. I was sickened by their glee in all of our sadness.

    Today, seeing the people cheering around the United States, has a similar effect. Don't get me wrong, I'm thankful Osama has been silenced. For all his evils, he has paid his price.

    I do not feel we should cheer his death on the streets of our Nation. I would like to believe that, as a nation, we are better than that.

    I agree in a large part. We didn't cheer because Hitler was dead. We cheered because the second bloodiest war in U.S. history and the most bloody war world-wide was over. OBL's death doesn't end anything.

    But still good riddance to bad rubbish.

    Make some Pork Butts in memory of OBL, as pork fat rules. Me thinks alot of Pakes knew about him living in P-stan and allowed it. We know who they are, NEXT. Bless our brave Troops who stormed that compound. :) :)

    dude, you were scooped by grillin n chillin by a full ten minutes. i guess your sources ain't what they used to be. either that, or your sources were still cleaning the mud from their boots.

    seriously, though, frigging staffers started tweeting this stuff around 10:30 from what i heard. i'm surprised it wasn't sooner, frankly. how long before the video comes out?
