    Hooray!!!
    The national networks have bumped our local news shows with this story. Supposedly President Obama will be speaking momentarily.
    If our own troops got Bin Laden, do they earn that $25 million reward?
    .
    .

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    alerts are being issued worldwide that his death may trigger new terrorist attacks.
    the bigger the government the smaller the citizen.

    I can't believe this country is celebrating someone's death.

    oh well. I expect no less.

    I hope Americans realize that ideas are bulletproof.

    I wonder what drew him out of the tribal areas, where he was safe. I wonder why he stayed so long at the mansion. I wonder why Pakistan finally sold him out.

    Looking forward to the details, though I wonder how much of the truth we'll get.

    Look at what else has happened on May 1 in history:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_1

    1776 – Establishment of the Illuminati in Ingolstadt (Upper Bavaria), by Jesuit-taught Adam Weishaupt.

    1945 – World War II: A German newsreader officially announces that Adolf Hitler has "fallen at his command post in the Reich Chancellery fighting to the last breath against Bolshevism and for Germany".

    2003 – 2003 invasion of Iraq: In what becomes known as the "Mission Accomplished" speech, on board the USS Abraham Lincoln (off the coast of California), U.S. President George W. Bush declares that "major combat operations in Iraq have ended".

    Probably his ongoing need for dialysis - the mountain regions were not the most reliable for electricity.

    Congratulations to the brave servicemembers who contributed to this successful (and long overdue) operation. So - when do we hear about troop withdrawals and resumption of civil liberties?

    This was my first concern when I heard the news.

    I think we'll all remember where we were and what we were doing when we heard the news. I was at a film industry mixer, a get together to catch up with each other, at Morimoto's at the Edition Waikiki. Beautiful surroundings, gorgeous view and weather, wonderful music, out of this world pupus, great company. The president of our assoc. made a couple of announcements then asked if anyone else had anything to say. One man, on the phone with one hand, raised his other hand and was called on. "Bin Laden is dead." he shouted. It came so out of left field that no one initially believed him. Then he said, holding up his phone, "Really. Bin Laden is dead." I looked around and everyone with smart phones was googling. Soon, everyone was erupting in cheers. Such a strange few minutes.

    Ahhh. Did not know he had kidney problems. That explains a lot. Thanks, Leo.


    This news explains the huge traffic jam, going into the Red Hill military housing.

    News now reporting that detainees gave info 4 years ago, and it lead to identifying the location of the hideout compound.
    Now run along and play, but don’t get into trouble.

    A friend of mine who was also at our industry mixer lives in the Red Hill military housing. She might've anticipated this problem which could be why she left the mixer as soon as she heard the news. She'd already mentioned that security was tightened for that area recently.

    The Pakistani intelligence service, ISI, was leaking information to Al-Qaeda re: US movement in that country.

    The US got lucky enough to get'em before he could evac. US forces were pretty close to him since September.

    Tensions will be high as Pakistan will be under immense pressure to find the leak that caused the US to go on a wild goose chase.

    you will be in a miniscule minority that doesnt herald this as a landmark day in the fight against terror. eff with the USA, murder 3000 civilians, place bombs thruout europe and asia, we will hunt you down and kill you. you will be safe nowhere on earth. "we will never forget"

    There was an article in today's newspaper about increased security at army bases - now the article makes more sense.

    This must have been in the policy of Obama Care.

    This. ^

    It is odd to see people celebrating a death the way they have been. This isn't like ending a war. Terrorism didn't surrender, the troops aren't coming home any sooner, we simply killed a man. A terrible man who did terrible tnings, and arguably a potent symbol. . . but just a man.

    Yup. Everyone's jumping up and down as if we destroyed Al-Qaeda. We just took down its most prominent symbol. You give bin Laden too much credit if you think he is Al-Qaeda.

    Mike, I totally agree with you and I think that all this "celebration" is like waving a red flag in the face of a bull. To the terrorists, this is like taunting. and its not a good thing to be doing right now.

    Americans are desperate for any "good news". Hopefully this isn't the highlight of 2011/2012
