Osama Bin Laden: Dead!

by at . Comments

Osama bin Laden is dead. This is not a hoax. The world's most notorious terrorist has been killed by U.S. military forces, according to breaking news reports.

The mastermind of the September 11, 2001 attacks and the leader of Al Qaeda was reportedly shot in the head in Afghanistan and his body is in U.S. hands.

Bin Laden is believed to have been taken down by U.S. assets in a mansion outside Islamabad, Pakistan, along with other members of his family, officials say.

Already a notorious fugitive before the 9/11 attacks that killed over 3,000 people, capturing Osama had been a key national security priority for a decade.

Few additional details have been confirmed about bin Laden's death at this time, but President Barack Obama will address the nation shortly to provide them.

The administration is still gathering intelligence and will be briefing congressional officials in advance of the President’s address to America tonight.

Obama will deliver the news to the nation in an address from the White House, almost 10 years after the catastrophic attacks bin Laden orchestrated.

Story developing ...

UPDATE: The Al Qaeda leader was shot in the head by U.S. forces in a mansion in Abbottabad, about 31 miles north of the Pakistani capital of Islamabad.

Four others in the compound were also killed. One of them was bin Laden's adult son; another was a woman being used as a shield by a male combatant.

Osama bin Laden's body was later buried at sea, an official said. Many Muslims adhere to the belief that bodies should be buried within one day.

Official did not release additional details about the burial of the notorious Saudi native, but said it was handled in keeping with Muslim customs.

In an address to the nation, the President called bin Laden's death "the most significant achievement to date in our nation's effort to defeat al Qaeda."

"Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan," Obama said.

"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."

Obama said the operation was planned for months.

As my good friend has said "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." Besides there is no way we could have captured him alive it just wouldnt happen. Plus to those that think its fake would the president of the united states of america really risk everything if he wasnt 100% sure that he was think about it.

Etienne do you really think that he just would give up so easily. He obviously went out with a fight if he used a woman as a shield? And what would the point of having a trial for him when he is one of our nations MOST notorious terrorists we have ever seen. Next time think about what you are saying especially if it is a sore subject such as this. Many people lost their lives to this sick man and now we no longer have to worry about him. The world will always have fighting of some sort and god bless all of those who risk or have risked their lives to fight for our country. I have friends and family who are currently serving our country. America may not be perfect but it is one of the best places to live on this planet.

Uhhhmm.. Isn't it Obvious!? HE IS NOT DEAD. There is ABSOLUTELY NO evidence. This is Probally another Hoax. Think Aboutit. He wouldn't send a Video saying he's alive to make a fool of the President. He Would bomb us. That's how he'll Prove it. He Probably had A Family Member Get Killed instead. DNA would match his Sister's. For All we know, He's hiding, and planning on Bombing us Again.

It's funny how people talk about justice and peace and say right after that Osama got what he deserve. I think he should have been trialed like every other crime lord. If you think it's allright just to put a bullet in his head, your none better than those fanatical islamic freaks! Some people think the world is safer now. WOw wake up! How many innocent lives where taken since the beginning of this war on terror? Ask middle east people! U.S. politics are so close to terrorist sometime!
