Default Osama Bin Laden dead

He's dead folks, killed in a skirmish today, the body's in US custody. DNA testing done from a sample of his dead sister confirmed it's him.

It's blowing up all over the internet, I'm still a smidge skeptical it's not true. Only because he's been reported "dead" like 10 times since 2002.

Anyway, hope it is. Hope his beard is sewn into an american flag. Hope his turban is used to wipe Uncle Sam's ass. etc.

Apparently he died a week ago and we just got the body.

There's a million different stories, many of them are likely misinformed. I'm watching Obama's address to the nation on CNN right now, he claims US soldiers entered a firefight with him and killed him today, then took the body into custody. But the story will be all filled out soon enough I'm sure.

Good. Very good. Ten long years. I really hope there is a hell and he's there.

I think since the US has custody of his body, we make it a memorial accessable to everyone. Placed over the body will be a toilet, and one by one, everyone can pay their respects to him.

If we had it for a week, why not tell us Friday afternoon instead of Sunday night. A dead bin Laden, and a bump in the economy, all in one weekend.

I'm still processing it. I sort of gave up hope. And now, well, what happens now?

This is only meaningful if we can revert to the pre-9/11 world. Strategically this is meaningless, Bin Laden hasn't been the man with the plan for a long time now. If we continue to live in this state of paranoia and fear, then his spectre still haunts us.

9/10/2001 never forget.

Long overdue. Too long overdue. Just way too fucking long overdue.

I wish I could shake the hands of every one of our brothers involved in this operation.

You guys know what this means, right? It means we're getting the fuck out of Afghanistan. Obama has just the excuse he needs - we took out the head of Al-Qaeda, which means they're pretty much destroyed*, so why stay in Afghanistan when finishing off Al-Qaeda was the objective all along?







*Of course, the withdrawal was inevitable anyway, and it's debatable whether Bin Laden was really in charge the last 10 years.
