DING DONG … THE BID LADEN IS DEAD!

Geraldo Rivera from Fox News is reporting OSAMA BIN LADEN IS DEAD!!!


VIDEO Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit

Fantastic news today … the man behind the 9-11 terrorist attack on the United States is reported to be pushing up daisies. What wonderful news. It is being reported he was killed a week ago by a US bomb. They had been waiting to confirm DNA results. The terrorist SOB is dead!!!

DEAD!!!

It is being reported at ABC News via the Drudge Report that the US has his body. We are awaiting a press conference  from President Obama with comments on the news that Bin Laden is dead.

Osama bin Laden, hunted as the mastermind behind the worst-ever terrorist attack on U.S. soil, has been killed, sources told ABC News.

His death brings to an end a tumultuous life that saw bin Laden go from being the carefree son of a Saudi billionaire, to terrorist leader and the most wanted man in the world.

A special song goes out to Osama Bin Laden, who wont be down for breakfast.

UPDATE I: The AP is reporting that Osama is dead and the US has his body.

UPDATE II: CNN is reporting that he was killed in a mansion in Pakistan. So much for living in the caves of Tora Bora.

UPDATE III: The AP is further reporting that Bin Laden was killed in a ground operation in Pakistan, not by a Predator drone.

Two senior counterterrorism officials confirmed that bin Laden was killed in Pakistan last week. One said bin Laden was killed in a ground operation, not by a Predator drone. Both said the operation was based on U.S. intelligence, and both said the U.S. is in possession of bin Laden’s body.

The FBI can now replace Osama Bin Laden as their #1 fugitive. As for this terrorist … ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST.

UPDATE IV: Al Jazeera’s reports US president confirms al-Qaeda leader’s death, saying he has been killed in firefight following US raid in Abbottabad.

US president Barack Obama said bin Laden, the most-wanted fugitive on the US list, has been killed on Sunday in a US operation in the Pakistani city of Abbottabad, about 150km north of Islamabad.

“Tonight, I can report to the people of the United States and the world, the United States had carried an operation that has killed Osama Bin Laden, a terrorist responsible for killing thousands of innocent people,” Obama said in a statement.

UPDATE V: Obama’s press conference (VIDEO) – Real Clear Politics

PRESIDENT OBAMA: “Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. a small team of Americans carried out the operation with extraordinary courage and capability.”

UPDATE VI: Comments from former President George W. Bush Facebook:

Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that American forces killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of the al Qaeda network that attacked America on September 11, 2001.  I congratulated him and the men and women of our military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to this mission.  They have our everlasting gratitude.  This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001.  The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message:  No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.

UPDATE VII: Tonight I thank our US military for finally getting this dog. It is not very often that I am joyous over death, but tonight I am. I can’t but help but think back to the morning of September 11, 2001 and remember the images of death, destruction and carnage. I remember the people from my town that were killed on 9-11 and the many alumni from high school and college that passed away on that fateful day. I think back to when we came together as a nation to defeat a common foe. A prayer goes out to the families of the victims of 9-11 and those that died.

GOD BLESS OUR MILITARY!

UPDATE VIII: According to Obama’s presser, this operation did not happen last week, it happened today. - (VIDEO)

Then, last August, after years of painstaking work by our intelligence community, I was briefed on a possible lead to bin Laden. It was far from certain, and it took many months to run this thread to ground. I met repeatedly with my national security team as we developed more information about the possibility that we had located bin Laden hiding within a compound deep inside of Pakistan. And finally, last week, I determined that we had enough intelligence to take action, and authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice.

Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. A small team of Americans carried out the operation with extraordinary courage and capability. No Americans were harmed. They took care to avoid civilian casualties. After a firefight, they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body.

UPDATE IX: Crowds gather in front of the White House in Washington, DC and in Times Square, NY to celebrate the death of Osama Bin Laden.

Hundreds of jubilant people streamed to the spot where the World Trade Center fell almost 10 years ago, waving American flags, snapping pictures and breaking into song early Monday to celebrate the death of Osama bin Laden with the boisterous enthusiasm of a Times Square New Year’s Eve crowd.

Many waved American flags or took pictures. One man climbed a light pole and waved the American flag to cheers below while others broke into song with renditions of “God Bless America” and “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

      It’s about time. What wonderful news. Just wish it could be President Bush making the announcement.

    4. Michelle Smith on May 1st, 2011 10:22 pm

      Good News! Our military and special ops, counter-intelligence is awesome.

      Way to go USA.

    5. Jymn on May 1st, 2011 10:54 pm

      Sorry drones. Obama kills Osama. Bush is fast asleep. It’s past 10 EST. Thank you, Obama. For being there for us.

      Actually it was out armed forced special ops that killed Bin Laden.

      Good night Mr. bin Laden, your dinner reservation with Iblis has been confirmed.

    7. kitty on May 1st, 2011 11:36 pm

      I’d like to shake the hand of the man who shot this monster in the head.

    8. rightknight on May 1st, 2011 11:57 pm

      Until it’s cleared up, Obowma still lies thru his teeth.
      He said ‘today’….hmmm, takes a few days to confirm
      dna (familial dna match). Also, he avoided confirming
      that the Osama rat was representing Islamic Jihad. This
      is a Radical Islam (Muslim) terrorist, not just a gang
      member we killed. Our President sure knows how to
      grab credit for things others do, and avoid criticism
      (thanks to a blindly adoring lap dog press).

      #5, actually the military operation took place at 3:30 in the afternoon and last I checked Obama was not in special ops.

      However, I give Obama credit for having the stones to pull the trigger on the operation. Of course his 40% approval rating mighty have a lot to do with it.

      President Bush is the one that had the balls to start a process, that reached its natural conclusion as a result of the strong arm of America’s military and covert operations. Obama just got the thrill of being the one that got to give the speech. Don’t like the guy, but the speech was okay, except for all the “at my direction” crap. What was he going to say??? No, just let the guy die in his sleep someday? Let’s all just be grateful Obama wasn’t the president on 9/11/01. No time for wimps that day.

      Good that they took him out but I’m afraid that it will not make any difference to al Qaeda.

      Still congratulations to the Obama administration they succeeded where Bush failed.
      _______________
      SM: Had to make it political, eh? Where W failed, ya think. You might actually want to take a look at the time line of interrogation where the pieces came together to start the ball moving in gathering intel that made this raid possible. They are all to be commended but sadly there are those that will just play politics. It is reported that KSM being interogated at GITMO started the process.

      “Let’s all just be grateful Obama wasn’t the president on 9/11/01. No time for wimps that day.”

      If Obama was President he would have gone into hiding for the rest of the day just as Bush and Cheney did. It’s protocol.

    14. Just Bearly on May 2nd, 2011 5:26 am

      I don’t dispute that a battle took place, however the photo of Bin Laden dead shown by Al Jazeera TV, and circulating in the internet, is very suspect and needs to be analyzed…not a trace of gray hair in that picture.

    15. Scott on May 2nd, 2011 6:26 am

      You leftist are idiots….the same libtards posting Obama victory are probably “truthers.”

      Actually you dim wits; the intelligence on the courier that led to Bin Laden started 4 YEARS AGO. Who was President then?

      Also, Osama was hiding the mountains in the years after 9-11…AND the Pakastani government and others were hiding him.

      This is a victory for all Americans no matter who is President and ordered the hit.

      This has nothing to do with who failed or who didn’t. Actually, if you want to go that far to say Bush failed; you might want to point that blame at Bill Clinton who had MULTIPLE opportunities to take out Bin Laden but did not. Do some research you libtard wipes!

      U-S-A….U-S-A…

      Also, a LARGE majority of the intelligence came from INTERROGATIONS at GITMO…that’s right, the place sent up for these thugs by President Bush!

      Both Presidents deserve kudos; and I’m not a supporter of the current President; but he does deserve credit for pulling the trigger!

      Cause you were there right??

      and I would give the kudos to the ppl who were involved on the ground.

    18. kitty on May 2nd, 2011 7:41 am

      I’d like to shake hands with the entire special ops team involved in taking this monster down…

      Don’t pollute the sea with this monsters remains… the sea is too good a place to bury this terrorist.

    19. super dave on May 2nd, 2011 7:46 am

      THANK YOU PRESIDENT BUSH FOR KEEPING US SAFE.THIS WAS YOUR IDEA SO I WILL GIVE CREDIT WHERE IT IS DUE. OBAMA OF COURSE, WILL RIDE YOUR COATTAILS AND GET THE CREDIT BUT, WE REMEMBER WHO STARTED THIS AND WHO WILL GET THE SATISFACTION. AGANI, THANK YOU PRESIDENT BUSH .

    20. muffler on May 2nd, 2011 7:58 am

      Amazing what good police work and a persistent investigation without fanfare can accomplish. Congrats to the President, ALL of the US armed forces and everyone who quietly participated.

    21. Paula on May 2nd, 2011 8:16 am

      Burial at sea is the smart thing to do, not offending millions of Muslims by respecting their rituals is clever too.
      Quite a success for Obama and his government this will have a serious impact come election time.

      The u.s has no ligitimite prove of usama’s killing if they had they would have displayed the photo n the burial video to the 9-11 victims n to all americans to calm there hearts , when the white house spokes man was asked to justify as to why a video of the burial was not shown to the public he said it was too gruesome to show n it might be inflammatory that is bulshit what is happening in afghanistan, palestine, n iraq is inflammatory n its shown every day on t.v so the reason they are not showing is one of two ; they didn’t kill usama he is still at large in tora bora or usama died on natural causes years ago n the u.s didn’t know untill the recent years n once they got the news they made a story about killing usama taking credit n to afoid humiliation for failing to capture usama , talking about capturing usama was unarmed when the u.s raided his house so why did they kill him they needed him alive more than anything BS (edit)
