Osama Bin Laden dead: Obama making some inportant announcement at 10:50pm 5/1/2011

Something important about national security, turn on the news guys.

EDIT: All I know right now is that Fox is saying they killed Osama Bin Laden, every other station is saying they're not sure and they don't want to over-speculate.

EDIT AGAIN: CNN is now saying they have heard from administrative and congressional sources that they are convinced they have the body of Osama bin laden and that he has been killed.

Hmmm...this is very interesting. I've heard recently that people are saying that "Suddam Hussein is alive." Which I'm 100% he's not.

Have a question about The Gospel or prayer request, PM me. Happy to help and God Bless!

...I'm not really sure if I can believe this. If he's been on the run for this long, I doubt he didn't have a body double that might be who actually got killed.

Only time will tell.

Is awesome if it's true, though.

They're saying they have DNA evidence and they've checked.

I'll sit on the fence about this till the announcement.

Killed outside of a mansion outside Islamabad, Pakistan with members of his family.
EDIT: Just updating with new information as they report it, considering it all speculation until the official announcement. Apparently it has been confirmed now though.

If you think about it, this really doesn't mean much. We got our revenge, and I don't think he's been doing much of anything other than hiding out. It's very good news, but I believe Sadam was more of a threat, or even Momar.

Either way, my patriotic happiness meter is high.

8 years

Show me pictures, and the DNA proof and I'll believe it. We've had SEAL/s, Special Forces and Delta hunting him for what seems like a hundred years (including CIA and Delta in Pakistan), and NOW we find him? (just in time for the Presidential Campaign)


EDIT:

Regardless of whether he's dead or not, Al Queda is still just as much of a threat...even more so now if he's really dead.

But, bring it. I dare anybody to face the American Military head on...

Liberty has always come from the subjects of it.

Switching between CNN and FOX and they are all saying the same stuff. I know the tin foil community will all say, "I'll believe it when Obama says so!" but it is pretty hard to not believe this. Seriously, it would be a HUGE .... up for the government to say he is dead and then have him not be dead...that just wouldn't seem right.
