    So, I believe that they killed him and everything. The one thing I'm curious about though is how they know 100% for certain that it's him? Aren't there like a million clone dudes running around who all had plastic surgery to look just like him so that looking for him would turn into a giant game of where's waldo?

    Most people don't get it, mainly because of details the media neglects to share; Al Qaeda isn't dead, nor is that a possibility. You can't stop a huge faction of mercenaries who have been doing nothing but fighting and killing people (and recruiting/reproducing on the way) since the 70s. The problem started when the US/CIA funded the mujahideen's defense of Afghanistan from Soviets. Our fear of red was much greater than our fear of brown and we ended up giving them WAAAAAY too much money and weapons (which they in turn siphoned off into small forces like the US-created Al-Queida. They don't have the Soviet enemy to waste their ammo on and Kashmir is merely a part-time battleground, AND SINCE these warriors don't exactly have the means/incentive to work a desk job AND with so much money invested in the organization, what's there to do but continue fighting?

    I'm relieved it was the Navy and not one of the private outfits a la Blackwater. Maybe it wouldn't have mattered at all, maybe it would have been a horrible precedent. What if it had been done by such an outfit? Historians call these what-ifs "counterfactuals".

    To preemptively kill any cries that we didn't bury him according to Islamic tradition and thus head of anti-America sentiment in that regard.

    The order was given by President Obama Friday morning but the weather was too bad. So it all went down Sunday afternoon 3:30 EST. 12:30 AM Pakistan time I believe.

    pics and raid video should be up this week, probably sooner.
    the compound will be a CS map, training facility design, and zombie osama will be in the next COD expansion pack.

    Something with pants? :D

    Listening to some folks in the Middle East saying how they didn't like the way the folks were celebrating Osama's death at Ground Zero, I felt "Now you know how we felt, when we saw Middle East celebrations of the Twin Tower attacks!"

    And true to my guess, there's a Kenyan Cleric who is calling to see the actual body. "Buried at sea? Is he a fish!?" LOL

    I personally don't care very much. They've got DNA, and those close to him (including his daughter) have reported that he's dead. There will be conspiracy nuts that will say he's still alive no matter what. I don't need to see the pictures.

    Oh yeah... and if Osama was smart he would have created a few vague videos for just this occassion.

    You only need a little push to enrage the doubting Thomas' of this country.

    Just like the birthers. They finally got what they wanted, but now it turns out it's still a fake. :roll:

    Crazy folks simply can't be reasoned with.

    i'll have to agree with obama, lets just put this away and forget about it.
    even if pics were released, we'd still find a reason to say its fake.

    just give these 911 families some closure even if it is all BULLSHITT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I remember watching the live-broadcast hanging of Saddam Hussein. Made me sick to my stomach to watch him die and thinking about it now, it in no way made my life better. Same thing goes with these pictures that are probably going to be released. Will I look at them? Most likely. Will it realistically just add another deposit for things that I might have nightmares about it and bring me no "closure"? Yep.

    Like the Berg beheading, I've avoided these death videos like the plague. And those morbid websites, like Rotten.com. Watching that shit just fills your head with bad vibes.

    Very good chance the pics will get leaked and show up on WikiLeaks.
