Osama bin Laden killed

Osama bin Laden is dead. He was 54. The leader of the Al Qaeda terrorist network had eluded capture for a decade since the attacks on September 11, 2001. U.S. forces and CIA operatives killed him in a firefight in his hideout compound in the city of Abbotabad, Pakistan. He was buried at sea. -- Lane Turner (27 photos total)

Osama Bin Laden, you got your wages. For the wages of sin is death. It was only a matter of time and it is only a matter of time for other parasites. You can run but you can't hide. Kudos to the SOGs!

that pic with him shot is clearly fake; i'm not saying he is not dead though.. but somehow i don't believe it

I'm really skeptical about all this. Three options were possible :

-Bin Laden was alive, allowing bombings and attacks to take place around the world.

-Bin Laden was captured, making terrorists attack even more to urge the US government to release him.

-Bin Laden is dead, that will probably lead to future attacks in retaliation.


Now that he's dead, I don't think the problem is solved. We're still far from it. Let's hope it will help to fight terrorism on the long term though.

I hope people remember when Bush took all of those special forces off the hunt in Afghanistan, to go invade Iraq. He could have been dead long ago, but he's had the last 8 years to move his operation to Pakistan.

My feelings about this (both the event and the images I see above) are extremely complicated. I will say that celebration in Times Square seems excessive and off-color, regardless of what Osama Bin Laden may have been responsible for or representative of. As an American I do not support or share that reaction. I know that this death will not be the end of the multiple wars that we are engaged in, and that it will spur many people of multiple faiths and ethnicities all over the world to engage in behaviors that are irresponsible and subhuman. I only hope that the end of this manhunt will mean rest and peace of mind for some people.

Let's hope that someday this will just be a cold, dark corner in an otherwise well-lit and warm global memory, in a world where peace is a genuine reality. Maybe for some people that seems like something ridiculous or unattainable, but for me in this context it seems the only logical thing to want.

While I cannot even remotely rejoice, respect, or tolerate Osama bin Laden's life and list of "accomplishments," I find it similarly disturbing and upsetting to see so many faces filled with joy that human beings have killed another human being. Al Qaeda murdered US citizens on 9/11 because they hated us, and this was deplorable; now we have killed Osama bin Laden because we hate him. I cannot agree with the killing of a person through hatred as an act to be celebrated and rejoiced in.

#7: What are they so happy about? A lot of humans died and the "war on terrorism" will have even more victims. The death of an isolated (no phone, no internet) leader means nothing, when a single gun can kill a whole crowd or explosives can be made from simple chemicals by individuals. There is no end to this by killing more people. The unarmed villager killed in action has some sons and they won’t see the world with your eyes, they will see a dead father and some foreign soldiers on their soil. They need no political or religious agenda with this biography.

The U.S. Government should admit that it's by no means their "success" nor "victory" even though they finally killed the long-wanted target Osama. That's because they'd already been failed to do it for nearly a decade, even while they've been investing in it enormous military budget and army personnel, and also high-technology weapons like drone bombings and Echelon espionage.

I'm not on a pro-Osama and either an anti-U.S. standpoint, but I want to ask the American people who seem now totally happy with the killing. Where and what kind of righteousness in it? What differences do you think will come to your people's life and the fellow troops in Afghanistan? I must say it's nothing, or simply the situation will gets even worse than before....

And, of course, now should we suspect the credibility of the fact and the reason for the timing of releasing ? Is Obama trying to take the same political benefits like Bush by scapegoating "enemy" ?

Will history remember this as a great victory (Mission Accomplished)?
Is it possible to win the "war on terror"?
When our children are grown and look back what sense will they make of the big picture so to speak? What was the cost billions of our dollars spent on unwinable wars with no clear end. The erosion of our liberty and privacy in these United States. Do we get to bring home the Sons and Daughers of America? Do we now cancel the Patriot Act? Shut down GITMO? Are we safe now? Is it ok for our politicians/government to put it's money where it's mouth is regarding the 9/11 first responders? Is this our legacy, is this what you would teach your children: an eye for an eye, win at any cost!

Serisouly is this the "Hope" and "Change" we all wanted?

It's sad that so many people are happy because one man was killed, of course the terrorism is much more of a cause to feel shame about, but that doesn't justifies feeling joy about another human being killed. It's so sad because I'm sure the terrorists felt the same joy and thought (erroneously) the same reasons about justice, both are wrong and make the worst of humanity.

I'm not really confortable with people celebrating his death by dancing in the streets. Out of respect for the people he murdered and for the thousands of innocent victims (soldiers and locals) who were killed in two absurd wars started because of him, I would be more moderate.
Plus his death doesn't sound like a victory, people like him are still alive, causes that foster terrorism still exist (and have been reinforced due to NATO intervention in the Middle-East) and I would have prefered him to be sentenced to death by a court (even if I'm against death-penalty) rather than just executed like this.

I feel it would have been wise to stay home and just breathe a sigh of relief.
Those public celebrations and chants after OBL's confirmed death seem to promote the status bin Ladin helt, making him more important than he really was. And even if he really was the true mastermind behind 9/11 (don't get me wrong, I don't believe this CIA/Mossad/Bush-did-it crap for a second), if he really still was al Qaeda's ultimate leader - it might have been wise not to turn him into a myth (again).

people are very much mistaken if they think that after the death of bin laden the world will find peace and unity. it's 200% certain that more terrorist leaders will take his place (if they haven't already).

also i find it quite sickening that certain people (obviously a minority) are rejoicing in the streets because bin laden is dead. just think, chances are if Bush junior passes away one day there will be more people celebrating all around the globe. and this is another sickening thought too.

Let's just hope this will not make him a martyr and cause thousands of brainwashed radicals to join the "cause".

I think that the sea burial (if it really happened) was a good idea. It will avoid creating a place of pilgrimage or reverence.

I have to say my feeling about all this are unclear. That man didn't deserve to live, I do not argue that fact. But to run into the streets beat your chest in a jingoistic fervor about it? This man's death doesn't make me happy, or patriotic. It would take a lot more than the death of this one man to make me feel that we've achieved anything in the last 10 years.

Even without the wars, even embracing my deepest desire for revenge, it would take a lot more than this to satiate me. It's revenge we wanted when we invaded Afghanistan and we've destroyed two countries in the decade it took us to get it. This is flaccid victory.

Some people celebrate, but I remain neutral in this. First things first: even if authorities have confirmed the kill, it may all be fake - just to prove the power of the United States. Although I hope that's what really happened. But now that he is dead (if so), what happens next? Is it really Osama bin Laden who's been the brain in the Al-Qaeda network? What about names like Ayman al-Zawahiri? My point is that even if Osama bin Laden is dead, this might just be the beginning of a new era.

He sure got what he deserved though.

The reason he was buried at sea is because that does not give the others to make a martyr's shrine out of his grave. At least he was given the respect of proper religious burial unlike what he has done to people from around the world for the trade centers and all of the others in the world he has given absolutely no respect or even an after thought.

He was buried at sea to keep his grave from becoming a pilgrimage destination, I believe.

Dancing in the streets isn't the civilized way to react. I know people will say "but THEY did when Americans were killed," but we should try to take the moral high ground and be better than indiscriminate killers and their fans.

This doesn't mark the end of a war or a mission accomplished, but an ongoing struggle. The people who want peace and freedom have to be better than those who celebrate and bring about death.

Yes, I agree that his death brings on complicated feelings to be sure.

Whether you chose to stand in the middle of street and scream or sit quietly in the corner, we are still so very much connected by this event. God Bless America.

The world is actually more insecure than it was before the "death" of Osama Bin Laden. No one talks about his kidney failure reported back in 2001, or how his very existence provided USA with the perfect excuse to bomb wherever it believed Bin Laden was hidding. No-one should be happy about anyone's death.
Congrats USA, now you can keep on war-mongering the civilized world as you please, in the name of "liberty" and "security".

Need to dig a little deeper on this one. Bring all the troops home now please...Fear/Lies/Propaganda machine needs to stop. I love America; so let’s take care of our country.

Putting a bullet in the head of someone is not justice, it is nothing else than the big return of the "eye for an eye" rule.

Wouldn't it have been better to bring him alive in front of a court, to answer the numerous questions the world has about 9/11 ? Nope, the US preferred to murder him and get rid of his body in high seas as fast as possible.

All of this is highly shady and not credible at all.

It's one thing to be rightfully satisfied that justice was done; it's another thing altogether to celebrate the fact that Bin Laden, the person, is dead. Hate is a bad thing no matter whose heart it resides in--whether you are an atheist, a Muslim, a Christian, or otherwise. Isn't hate part of what caused 9/11 in the first place? I might hate your actions, but hating you is a step in the wrong direction.

The reaction of celebrating Americans dancing and chanting 'USA, USA' in the streets is no different to the extremists celebration of 9/11 deaths. I thought they would rise above such a low level.

I have mixed feelings about the death of Osma Bin Laden even though he is/has been an evil destructive person, leader of the Radical Muslim people, and figurehead to all who hate the West and the USA. It is difficult for me to celebrate another person's murder.

I congratulate the CIA, our Military, the Navy Seals, and all at the highest level in our land for the tireless and oftentimes thankless work they do for our Country and our people.

We need to remember George W. Bush, who after 9/11 kept our Country safe and boldly sought out those who attacked us. He is the one who said -- "Osma Bin Laden" -- dead or alive. I give him a lot of credit for his leadership.

We need to be "watchful," as terrorism is not dead. There are still many who late our Country and the freedom and way of life that it stands for. We need to continue to guard our Country and keep it safe!

I also find the jubilant faces in the crowd a little odd. In fact, haven't these people been influenced by the same sort of brainwashing that bin Laden used to convince people to carry out terrorist attacks?

It's not a normal reaction. If these people had any sense they'd know that nothing has changed with his death.

To all those people who are saying it's sad to see people celebrating another humans death. Well let me teach you something called justice...

You need to understand that sometimes by killing one person you can save many. This man is responsible for the authorised killing of 3000 Americans and many more around the world including in London, Bali and the Middle East. Killing this man would surely save at least 2 other peoples lives. If we don't bring justice to people like this what kind of message does it send to anyone who commits crimes in our societies? "Can you please stop murdering people on your street, it's starting to get annoying", this doesn't sound like an effective strategy. What would you do if someone killed your children, parents, brothers or sisters, wouldn't you want them immobilised from carrying out repeated actions?

Secondly to all those skeptics out there, what happens if Osama really was killed by the Americans? What evidence would you want to see to prove this? If you are blind enough not to see all the preliminary evidence already..well let's just see if Osama makes any more video tapes shall we?

Yes it is a relief, but he was no longer the problem. The revenge has been taken, and now what? We in America are being played like a Banjo on Obama's knee. Bin Laden was a Saudi, Obama bowed to the Saudi King, as an American President that was disgraceful! A slap in the face to our soldiers and any Human being that is Humaine, for that King and all his followers a Tyranical Murderers! Obama refused to put his hand on the bible when being sworn in the first time as a US Senator of Illinois. Then he got permission from his Islamic friends that he could use Lincoln's bible as long as they announced it as Lincoln's belief, and not Judeo/Christian, recently we are being threatened by the Sharia Law? And now the real wind up! The right hand of the former mayor, (Richard M. Daley, who stepped down to threats) was an Iranian a dear friend of the president of Iran, and now Rahm Emanuel is Mayor of Chicago right hand to Obama and all he needs is Chitown to swing the election and he is counting on the racial vote to win. He has a hidden agenda but if you observe carefully, and listen to his speeches, such as when he accused the Americans, and discounted himself as an American by saying"The American People are Arrogant!" How dare he say that! He is an Arrogant slam dunking weasel! He lied to everyone. Now put in perspective the Al Quaida they sacrifice lives to win their battles! They sacrificed Bin Laden, for Obama to get the re-election and that is the truth! The Islamic and the Al Quaida with the help of Putin in Russia and the Russian Mob are going to take over!

When we failed to kill Hitler, the world suffered and 6 million people died. So, killing an evil guy is better than allowing him to kill thousands of innocent people. Osama might have been angry against politicians, but had no right to kill innocent citizens just because they are Americans. Look, when USA is not taking military action in Libiya who is helping their citizen? Muslim world gets more financial help from the USA than from any one else, yet they hate the same giving and kind Americans. A common innocent Muslim does not hate any one, but their politicians use them against USA. One less terrorist is good for the world.

"Out of respect for the people he murdered and for the thousands of innocent victims (soldiers and locals) who were killed in two absurd wars started because of him, I would be more moderate."

I am sure that some of the many, many victims across cultures, and their families, might appreciate a more subdued celebration; and for them I am sure there are many who did adopt a more reflective and meditative response. But surely there are many of them who also would have 'jumped for joy' and its equivalent. Seems like all were/are represented in the last 24 hours. This assassination is, indeed, a smallish thing and also something huge, though I believe it is a major net plus for the world.

"Show us the body" "dumped at sea" "want to see proof"

It does not matter. When they show you pictures of the body or other proof, you'll say they are fake.
Even if they had put him in an open casket on display in the middle of Times Square, those people would simply say its some other dead guy - People who don't want to believe the official story, won't - ever.
That's the beauty with conspiracy theories, no one can proof them - and if they are proven wrong, you can just come up with another theory.

One thing is for sure, he is dead - either killed last night, or he died before that.
(Personally, I tend to think he was actually killed there last night, otherwise there would be a lot of people who would have to be kept quiet now, which is not that easy)

And no way they would stage something like that if he was still alive, otherwise the embarrassment if he would release a video message the next day would be beyond belief.

Posted by Dirk May 3, 11 02:02 AM

Good riddance.

To those who think Americans are hypocritical for celebrating his death, remember, he was responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent American civilians. He had been elevated to the same 'evil status' as Hitler or Stalin, so while most Americans want to end our wars, we are glad to see him gone.

Also, conspiracy theorists will always disbelieve, it's in their nature. Even if they get photos, videos, or a long form death certificate, or touched the body themselves, they will never believe anything the government says.

That being said, he was buried at sea to prevent creating a site of martyrdom or pilgrimage. He was also combative, hiding behind a woman no less, which is why taking him captive was not likely possible.

Certainly no loss to humanity with him dead. The question is, when the next terrible senseless attack on innocent people happens, who do we blame? For 10+ years, he has been the face that we've put with the word terrorism. Some robot tries to blow up his underwear on a plane, who's the first person that comes to mind? OBL. Some maniac blows himself and kills inocent people, who's the first face you think of? OBL. Who's behind these acts? OBL.
Who will we blame the next time something happens? Who's face do we associate with it? Somehow I think the fact that the knowledge he's been around for the last ten years and was supposedly hiding in a cave on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border has given us an outlet to vent our anger. We hoped that he would be caught but the fact that he wasn't still gave us some subconscious hope that when he was it would all stop. It won't, and now we REALLY don't know who the enemy is. It's a faceless enemy, which will make it all the more difficult and frustrating to endure the next time something horrible happens.

Only Americans can kill Terrorist. Each time Tamil terrorists bombed sri lanka to the stone ages, the Americans advised the Sri Lanka govt to "negotiate peace" with the terrorists, all this when their own FBI designated the Tamil terrorists even worse than Al-Quaida!.
When Sri Lanka army surrounded the Tamil terrorists leader Velupillai Prabhakaran, it was the Americans who were planning to whisk the fellow away to safety. And when Sri Lanka finally killed the terrorists and celebrated, Americans complained it was "Triumphalism". Of course when Americans celebrate the killing of Osama, its a "victory". When 9/11 happened we were in tears because we too know the pain from terrorism, but now after seeing this disgusting duplicity by the Americans, we just shrug and say "who cares""

For those of you saying it is sad that we should celebrate the death of a human being...there was no humanity in him. He was a tyrant. Nor are we stupid enough to believe that this will end the ignorance of terrorism. Our brave soldiers, and many from other nations go where they are needed, to help end the tyranny for the peace and freedom of all of mankind. I would think you would join in the celebration, not of the death, but of the life and closure it gave back to all the peoples that were hurt by these sub-human creatures...these demons hiding behind their god. I am not condemning any religion, but its perversion by any act of violence committed in the name of one's higher power. We have a duty to protect those who cannot protect themselves.

After tens of thousand of innocent lives lost, trillions of dollars spent, the man synonymous with terrorism is dead. Hopefully, the rest of Al Qaeda top deputies fall like dominoes. One can only hope.
I guess President Obama just banked a lot of votes for the next election, so the Republican party better pick the right candidate to run against him.

I suspect that someone in the Pakistani government knew where he was living all this time and kept him safe and well fed. Money can buy pretty much anything. The number of innocent lives lost could have been avoided if the Pakistani just handed him over a long time ago. To think that he US government is giving billions of dollars to Pakistan every year and gets very little help in return. That money would have been better spent if we gave it to India.
I hope they demolish that compound where Bin Laden has been living all this time, given that that's the place he was last seen alive. Wouldn't want extremist using that place for pilgrimage before committing more terrorist acts.

Once upon a time there were three little pigs and they all sprouted wings. One little pig did not have a birth certificate so they faked one very badly so he could say he was the Big Pig and live with his snout in a trough in his little, well, not so little, white house.

One day Big Pig, who was really only doing what he was told to save his bacon, announced that a naughty man who had died a long time ago had died again. The naughty man was very clever to do this, but he was well known for his little tricks. For years after he died the first time he still managed to speak on new videos and tell the people just how naughty he was.

Then another little pig said that the naughty man had been thrown into the sea and so the people could not see his face and know that the Big Pig was telling the truth. But everyone with a brain knew that the Big Pig never told the truth and so they knew that Big Pig was telling more porkies.

Big Pig and the little pigs showed the people a picture that was made up to fool lots of them, and, unfortunately, children, this was usually not very difficult to do.

It is hard to believe, that OBL was still alive since 2001. Some sources mention, he was ill, required dialysis and he died in late 2001, possibly on december 16th.

One other fact: Why didnt the special forces use stun grenades and/or gas? Was this just a well-ahead-planned "lynch mob mission"? Is this the way justice works?

Even now there is no evidence for OBL's involvement in the 911 desaster. Ask the FBI. Also "the burial" at sea is fishy at best, destroying evidence..Maybe someone set up a "patsy" or "fall guy" in advance then sent in the firing squad. The location was one ISI safehouse.

Don't get me wrong, OBL was a nutcase from the point of no return after 1991. But take heart, there are many many more nutcases playing with matches on a global level.

Why not have them arrested and put to work in irons? They expect to die as martyrs, so dont give them this satisfaction.

Osama had grey in his beard! There was no grey in the dead guys beard. Is that really him, You would think that they would have done a better job. Obama 1, Osama 2,983.
Let's be clear on this: OBAMA did NOT kill Bin Laden. An American soldier, who Obama just a few weeks ago was debating on whether or not to PAY, did. Obama just happened to be the one in office when our soldiers finally found OBL and took him out. This is NOT an Obama victory, but an AMERICAN victory!!

I don't sympathyze with Radical Islamists in the slightest.
But it's wrong to celebrate a person's death.
It's wrong to conduct a military operation on a country's territory without its government's consent.

This is setting a very bad precedent - surely, special operations on foreign soil aren't anything new, but for the first time they are so openly admitted, as if it's something normal, even something to be proud of.
And, of course, that whole dancing on the grave shows just how thin the veil of civilization is.

Ladies and Gentlemen whether you believe the pictures or the truths which you have been told through social media, except this idea: The man responsible for thousands of deaths to our friends, husbands, wives and children is gone. While this is no where near the final chapter in this book, this is a moral victory for those who continue to sacrifice their lives to so that we as normal Americans can continue the lives which we so easily take for granted!!!! Be proud of our military, shake the hand of someone who has served your country and thank them for your freedoms. We are in difficult times within our country, take this momentary pause and smile knowing that we are pushing forward towards the future. Congratulations to the skilled men carried out this mission!

@#30, You have a right to your opinion however in a world of uncertainty, it is better to remove evil by any means necessary than hope that such evil will somehow change for the the better. Osama Bin Laden declared war on the United States of America and incite other radicals to "kill" any American they can get their hands on. Such evil can not be allowed to exist among people who only wants to live in peace. You can't fault people from "celebrating" his death because in these uncertain times, we have to celebrate what little victory he have against evil people and there are a lot of them out there.
Someday the human race will live in peace but not in my lifetime and certainly not in yours.

For a long time I thought that there will come a time when America will be sick and tired of fighting in the Middle East. When that day would come, America would first shoot some bearded guy in the Middle East, declare Victory, and retire their soldiers. Step one has just taken place.
I just wish that, before american soldiers retreat, some schools were established as a basis for education or the next generation may be comprised of more and more jihadis.

Le destin d'un guerrier est de mourir. Oussama a fait son devoir et payé sa dette. parlons du reste. Si les 3000 morts du 11/9 sont ainsi vengés; il restera a venger les millions d'africians, d'arabes et de musulmans qu'on tue tous les jours, sous les prétextes les plus divers
Le jour ou leur vengence arrivera, il ne servira à rien de brandir une résolution de l'ONU. Personne n'est dupe, ce sont les rapports de force qui aujourd'hui vous sont favorables. Mais la roue de l'histoire tourne et rien ne sera oublié.
Je conseille aux americains de profiter de cette occasion pour proclamer la paix au Monde, se retirer de l'IRAK, de l'Afghanistan, cesser de bombarder la Libye et trouver le moyen de réparer ses erreurs.

I'm a Muslim who is proud to be a Muslim,but i would in no way justify crimes committed by bin laden in the name of Islam,killing the innocents,children & women.
But what i don't seem to understand is why the educated son of a millionaire would leave his country,go to a remote place somewhere in the world and start a mission to kill innocents.He was not after money,that's for sure.....Then,what did he want???
God says in the Quran"Whoever kills an innocent soul,it is as if he has killed the entire humanity,he who saves an innocent soul,it is as if he has saved the entire humanity."
Jihad in Islam is completely different.It means "Strife for the Truth".First,we have to conquer ourselves,only then can we conquer injustice .And the way to conquer injustice is not by hitting and taking out ur anger at everyone u see,destroying lives and wrecking families.
These ppl are misinterpreting the Quran.Islam stands for Peace,always."Defend Evil with what is better,then there will be between whom there was hatred become as if they were close friends.None can attain it except the Patient,none can attain it except the most fortunate."(Quran)Misguidance is more dangerous than the weapons.Please........no more killings over this.What Obama said is something we all have to bear in mind,It is not a fight against Islam,it is a fight against Injustice,a fight for Peace......

I don't believe this untill i've seen moving images of the moment they took him from that house in Pakistan. I don't believe photoshopped pictures while the US government has said that displaying the pictures of the killed Osama is too horrible to show the world. When they arrested Sadam it was showed in all the newsbulletins. When he was hanged there was footage of it. Also pictures of his sons who had been killed in a firefight. And not now? At this moment when the world most wanted terrorist has been killed?? Another thing that i don't understand is that they threw him in the sea and didn't burry his body close to the compound where he would have stayed... I simply can not believe this story. I guess Obama needed a little succes these days. And when he can't earn it, he creates it himself.

Osama Bin Laden could have been one of histories greatest men. With his family's multi-billion dollar empire, he could have channeled all that money and effort by helping the less fortunate, establishing scholarships and even fostering dialogue between Muslims and Christians. Instead he decides to spend tons of money to kill innocent people, cause massive social upheaval and financial distress.

I hope he's happy in hell along with 70 virgin demons.

Somehow I believe it is human nature from the centuries to kill each other whenever there is clash of different point of views or urge to dominate the surrounding by force or violence.

Process of creating peace in the so called "CIVILIZATION" was and is very long and very few "human being" have found the correct path do the same, countless have lost their lives. As long as the division of human being is there in the name of race, religion, caste, financial fitness level, there will be jealousy and hate-rate between two or more groups and we keep pulling and killing each other like crabs.

"The ONE" may not mercy us anymore!!!

Have a good luck with your death and life!!!

Why is everyone so upset about Americans celebrating? Perhaps for many of them, bin laden was responsible for the death of their family members or friends. If that was me and the murderer was finally brought to justice I'd dance on his grave and burn pictures of him. Let them have their party.

Nobody's kidding themselves that the cause dies along with him, but bin laden was so charismatic and symbolic for Al qaeda that there's a chance this may result in less terroist activity. If not then at least it's nice to see lots of people happy for a change

And the hasty burial at sea was to honour Islamic tradition, if bin laden was still alive he would have made a video of himself by now to prove he's not dead.

American Patriot: Please note to all who are sad that OBL was killed.This is not about killing an innocent man.He was responsible for killing innosent people on 9/11 in New York city and else where.He was a criminal that was tring to escape his crimes, also on a quest to kill all Americans. He was a leader of an extreme islamaic cault.He was an icon for all that hate America. America has done nothing to hurt the free peoples of the world.We the people of the United States of America have always tried to be a friend and allie to those in need of help from the tyrants of the world.Yes we want peace for all man kind and to live in harmony with our brothers and sisters of the world.When you see people of the free world rejoicing over the death of this man ,it is not because we are happy that OBL is dead, it is because the U.S.A. has helped rid the world of another tyrant to make this a safer place for for all of us to live as a free and peaceful people.

How dumb do you have to be to believe all of this?

The REAL terrorist is oBama/US government, not oSama...

I for one hope Osama is alive and well, if not, he died years ago. And no I'm not a radical muslim, I'm an atheist living in London.

How convenient is it that this news is released just after this whole birth certificate fiasco, and even more importantly with the presidential elections round the corner.

As long as this american government exists justice will never prevail.

The "retaliation" by "Al Qaeda" should be interesting. I predict many more "acts of terrorism" in the USA and Europe within the next year, which in turn will probably lead to the Americans invading more countries, waging more wars, and the government MAKING UP new enemies. Is this really something to celebrate?

Great timing on the killing. Just before the 10 year anniversary of 9/11. Well, some people say this is definately not a conspiracy. Whatever it is, it is definately not as simple and straight-cut as the media - and pic 27 "THE END" - makes it out to be.

Found these words in the timeless wisdom Martin Luther King, it is exactly how I feel about the whole situation - "I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one... Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of star... Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."

The government is corrupted, anyone with half a brain knows hes dead. Congress controlls miitary and usa and 9/11 was by usa coincidence that you find two iraqi passports in the ashes of 9/11 and the towers fell straight down impossible the plane would make it fall sideways scientists prove it. Also weird that the pentagon at the hour when the plane crashed was empty congressmen left for lunch yea rite. The moon thing was fake if you look closely at the video when we landed on the moon the usa flag moved hello no air in space duh no wind cant make flag move scientists has proved it we are all living a lie usa is the worst government ssystem in the world but its the best one we got. we are all living a lie but until someone stands up to congress than we all ignore it and keep going on with our luxuries.

God, the morons on this site. We didn't create Islamic jihad in the Middle East by defending ourselves after 9-11; Islamic jihad has existed for centuries against the West. When the Left's anti-American knee-jerk reaction to everything becomes a blanket support for terrorism against our country, then the Marxist mask has slipped again.

No matter how bad this person was! Everyone deserves a trial since to decide on life or death is up to no God and no one else! This will create more and more terror and the so called war on terror can remain productive for the industry. Sad chapter of history... again!

To all you American haters - have your countries quit taking our financial, medical, economic and humanitarian aid. Build up your own national defense and do not call on us to bail you out when you are being threatened or overrun by another country or terrorist group. Stop immigrating to our country just because your country is in complete disarray or is unlivable due to poverty or an oppressive government. Stay home and straighten out the mess you and your ancestors created over the last 5,000 years.

We cannot trust our gov't at all, especially this particular leader who berates the military one day for roughing up islamic terrorist and claims the next to have given the order to take out the leader of the most violent terrorist in recent times. The fact that he produced a false birth certificate last week and is now setting his sites on a 2nd term may give one reason to give it another thought. There is no consistency in this odd person posing as our leader. Why would a person who's sympathies are obviously muslim make this claim and why are there too many unanswered questions? Where is the proof? We have been fed a diet of lies for too long and I am sick of it. We the People, deserve to see the true destruction of the person who orchestrated the murder of innocent men, women and children. We should demand it. People, wake up and smell the coffee--we are being lied to....again!

I can't believe the number of idiot conspiracy theorist in this blog site.
We're not talking about aliens, we're talking about a mass murderer who is responsible for tens of thousands of death and the US government will release pictures in due time. I suspect they are weighing which pictures to release so as not to incite extremist radicals to go on a massive killing spree of innocent people.
Of course that doesn't matter to all those keyboard pundits as long as they see proof of death. We are talking about extremist whose view of the world borders on the insane. I guarantee there will be innocent death caused by Bin Laden's death and the release of his death pictures/videos.
I'm uncomfortable watching people celebrate the death of a man but I understand the reason for such celebration and certainly will not criticize such behavior.
This is only the beginning, there are a lot of extremist radicals to be remove and I prefer for them to die in operation like this so as not to drag on for years trying to convict them while libertads try to set them free.
Throughout history, there are instances where people could have remove maniacal despots and failed and as a result, millions died and millions more suffered.

People should be more concerned how Osama Bin Laden manage to live in Pakistan without getting caught by ISI. For 6 years or more, he orchestrated the death of thousands, while living in an "affluent" neighborhood under the noses of the Pakistani government. I understand if he lived in a cave in Pakistan but the man lived just miles from a military academy, in a compound built like a fortress. Any helicopter flying over such a compound would question who would live in such a place unless they knew and look they other way.

Its not as if Osama was even the leader of a country. He was the leader of a terrorist network his whole country was scared of. And besides that most of the people in the middle east especially pakistan are relieved by the news of this because they were not his followers but they were scared of him.

This maybe be hard news to some of you out there but, life isn't always about peace and love. It can all be fine, but when someone such as OBL conducts such a major disaster and destruction of innocent human life, something has to be done. Yes, many more Americans died in the war on terrorism, however; how can you not fight back? Not fighting back means that it was acceptable or okay, to do such a thing. If some random guys comes along and punches you in the face, you're not gonna fight back? Even if you do get a whopping you're letting that person know it's not acceptable for him to punch you. Is it wrong for someone to be happy that their sons murderer was found guilty and sent to death? So he doesn't harm anyone again. It's the same win Bin Laden, honestly, what do you
think would've happened if he was put court?! Of course he would've been
sentenced to death! I too have not seen pictures yet. But really is that what you like to see, a dead body? Who knows if they government is lying, if you're American, I think you should believe in your government. They may be messed up financially but have faith. If you don't believe in your country, what are you even doing here?! By the way, Osama and other Alqaeda terrorists cause mortality and destruction in many other countries besides the U.S. Even if you're not American, he very well could've affected you or your community. His death brings justice to thousands and thousands of people world-wide. To sum up, is it wrong to be happy that the man who killed a little girl or boy's father or mother is finally no longer harming anyone else? I think not.
Ps: 9/11 was not Bush's fault. You think the terrorist cared who the president was? No! They just wanted to harm people.

Wheather or not to believe it all is still up in the air. I want to see proof, I live right near where flight 93 was taken down and the whole ordeal in itself is sad. I won't celebrate his death, he was still a human being even though I don't believe in what he did or have any respect for him I think instead of celebration we should allow those who loved him mourn for him, as we do for our dead, and we as americans need to thnk about and prepare for whatever is to come now that 'Osama has been killed', he still has followers and right now that's whtwe need to think about... If the man isdead, like I said I want to see actual proof. Oh and for everyone saying 'why a burial at sea?' to an extent I aree with you but if you look at it logically, now there cannot be a shrine made at a burial site, although I do believe that one will be made somewhere anyway but atleast it will not be near him..... that I am happy about. And anyone can say he didn' go this and he didn't do that, fact of the matter is he was stilla terrorist and killed many people... his God will do what sees fit (I think cerain Muslim religous 'stories' are ridiculous but it's just my opinion) and my God will send him straight to hell...

Nothing about this situation makes a lick of sense. The chances that it was actually Bin Laden that was killed are slim to none. He has managed to evade capture for a decade. In all probability, this is a ruse designed to feign his death, allowing Bin Laden to escape. He's probably sipping margaritas in Miami Beach right now.

On the off chance that Bin Laden actually perished, the next Al Queda leader will undoubtedly be bloodthirsty and in all probability, return fire upon the U.S.A.

Great job government, you've only just invited every Al Queda friendly nation and "terrorist organization" to attack the U.S.A. It'll be you against the word. Thanks for destroying any future this planet may have had. It's fecking aces.

@ 263 Posted by EDDIE: "Don't MASS with the USA" doesn't make a bit of sense. Try "Don't MESS with the USA". Hopefully you aren't so incredibly dense that you are able to see the difference between the two. You imbecile, proofread your comments before you post them.

@ 330 Posted by MICHAEL: While I don't agree that celebrating the death of someone is cruel, you should understand that people are truly celebrating the perceived end to Al Queda terrorist threat. In all likelihood, whomever next comes to power will be more extreme and thus, a greater threat to the U.S.A.

@ 339 Posted by CHRISTIAN: God doesn't exist and if by some chance he did or does, he would be nothing more than another dead-bead dad and has abandoned us.
Bin Laden made the best of the hand he was dealt. Haven't you seen the footage that comes in from the middle east? Mere children armed with guns when they should be in school or playing with their toys. It's all about perspective. Had you grown up in such conditions, you would have made the same decisions which he did.

I use to sit and WONDER HOW THE WORLD EVER GOT INTO SUCH A MESS, Yet after reading a few of the posts on here , I can easily see how "To post #301 the towers fell 45 minutes after the jets hit . You obviously live in a cave with no TV or cable to think they would be swaying . Either that or you have no idea of how a high is constructed , second to post #267 take off the blinders & learn the saying "Don't tread on me" Funny thing is we were not invading any country on a large scale until after 9/11 If you pull on a sleeping dogs tail ...your gonna get bit!!

I agree with 277. The Japan pic is very, very weird. It is very unnatural that Tokyo people smile reading papers when some terrorist is assaulted. Japanese people haven't shared the 'fear of terrorism' so far. It should be almost impossible to capture those smiling people acting like they are glad to have him dead. Doubt.

@ yus (377)
I think people (especially the couple in right, and the schoolgirl in center) were smiling not for Osama's death, but rather by some relaxing mood amid the week-long holidays, and just expectantly seeing what is on the extra-paper. All of the others on the photo are not smiling in any way.

I agree, however, the photo was somewhat misrepresented as a "proof of positive reaction to the killing of Osama".

People that think it is wrong to "celebrate" the death of Osama do not know God. The bible says to celebrate a death and mourn a birth. In this case the celebration is not because he will be in eternity with God but will be judged for his deeds and sentenced to eternal hell for them. With that, the folks that think he deserved a fair trial can rest assured he will receive one....from the highest authority and at no expense of the American tax payers.....he deserved nothing more than what he got. Not from us. We (Americans) already pay too much to keep bad, useless people alive. The bible also says and eye for an eye...I believe they "stoned" people to death who broke the law....They crucified Jesus.....figure it out!!! Rejoice!! Justice has been done!!!

1) Whether Bin Laden is really dead is irrelevant. Chances are more will come to take his place and the war will go on.

2) It's truly sickening that people are actually celebrating for Bin Laden's execution. Even if they lost family or friends on 9/11, they'd rather contemplate in silence after justice (?) is served. I can't bear the idea of people dancing on the streets because a bad guy was killed. They are so naive if they think their problems will go away now. Nothing will change.

3) US will soon go bankrupt and Obama needed something to boost his re-election chances (much like Bush Jr. was re-elected only because he blamed Al Qaeda for everything and the US nation stood behind him -at least for awhile-).

4) For those who talk about the "fear of terrorism", they'd better think first WHAT caused all the terrorism and WHO provoked some people into becoming terrorists and blow themselves up (along with other innocent civilians). Are you naive enough to believe that Afghani, Palestinian, Iraqi, Irani or Pakistani citizens suddenly woke up one morning and thought "well, life is boring here, let's make some hand-made bombs and kill all the infidels"?

5) Something BIG is bound to happen, that's for sure. Some big explosion somewhere that will kill innocent people and the US will put the blame on some other country and start a new war.

Yes,I can't believe that they do not want to show Osama's body to the United States because it is too brutal and would not be pleasant for our eyes to see.Well,we all witnessed hundreds of victims jump to their death off of the trade center,and thousands die right before our eyes on 9-11.Come on!! I don't think it could get any worse than that.I think the photo of his dead body should be portrayed up in Times Square.

1. Obama declares Manning guilty. There has been no trial yet.

2. Obama orders US military to invade Pakistan, hunt out Bin Laden and kill him - without trial. Note that Pakistan is not, at this time, part of the U.S.A. The U.S.A. invaded a foreign country and performed an act of murder.

There is no proof that this is Bin Laden. He was not brought to trial. There is not even a body.

The whole thing smacks of the 9/11 lie where two planes were supposed to have brought down three buildings.

I for one am sick of being lied to.

I also believe there is something wrong with this whole thing. I agree that the families of 9/11 need to celebrate the death of OBL, but I believe he has been dead for a while. I will not put it past President Obama tp use this as a PR stunt.

Thank you, @382! Exactly my thoughts. I told people the same with mohitos and the Cayman Islands, but yeah, Osama's sipping his "well-deserved" drinks on the Bushes' tab in some exotic country, because he's only a smokescreen of your government. And you don't hate him because of the 3000 people that died in WTC (God rest their souls). I mean, Winston Churchill made 4 million Hindus starve to death, and everyone loves the good old alcoholic. You hate Osama because media makes you hate him.

By the way, civilized men don't celebrate death. They mourn or shut up.
And if someone had shot Stalin or Mao or any mass-murderer dictators right now (given they were alive), you wouldn't be on the street celebrating, even though they made a thousand times more people suffer.

Of course he is really dead. Obama would never take the risk of blatantly lying to America when Osama (if still alive) could release more videos and reveal the truth. Oh, and to all you Osama sympathizers... If there is one man you can deem directly responsible for the 9/11 attacks, which left 3,000 American's dead, it is Osama. Get your heads out of the gutter! Osama would have liked to see this whole country go up in flames, and was probably plotting more attacks. If people feel like celebrating, let them celebrate!

You are all very opinion based. Have you stopped to think every time one is killed another is brought up? Killing a person does not bring back the thousands of dead or fix the thousands that have been injured. I am not political I think the govt is crap. However i support the fact that we need someone to help PREVENT these attacks in OUR country. Clinton was aware of what was to take place, Bush sat back and allowed, and Obama is one of them. The USA is a place of freedom and dreams, yet its at a constant state of war. So are we really all that different from the others after all?

THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS

Article 11.
(1) Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defence.
(2) No one shall be held guilty of any penal offence on account of any act or omission which did not constitute a penal offence, under national or international law, at the time when it was committed. Nor shall a heavier penalty be imposed than the one that was applicable at the time the penal offence was committed.

Just to note that you have obviously failed to play by the rules that you were so eager to create and sign not so long ago. It appears America no longer believes in bringing the accussed before a court. You know what that means - no one else will, either.
I'm not a supporter of Osama bin Laden, or of Obama bin Laden, as Fox40 reported, but I know what a true Christian should be doing. He should be praying for absolution and forgiveness.

They protect Israel and hence contribute to kill Palestinians, invaded Irak without still now proving that there is weapon of mass destruction and still killed so many people there, invaded Afganistan and killed so many people there. No they are killing people in Libya as they know that this country has petrol. Why don't they invade North Korea, Russia or China which are communist countries?

Osama was human garbage. Nothing more. He played with fire and years later finally gets taken out by a covert military kill squad. Boo-hoo! Why people here seemed surprised by this is beyond me.

From the interviews of the people 'celebrating' I have seen, they are not celebrating his death, per se, but rather closing at least this chapter on these neverending wars. I saw quite a few people saying, 'now we can focus on getting our troops home', indeed.

For those of you who believe that a celebration is not due for the "loss" of a terrorist is ignorant. They are also the same ones that would watch their family members get brutally murdered, without saying a word to the attacker, right? So tell the family's of the fallen soldiers, firemen and police that died that day, trying to save the innocent people that were crushed during the attack, not to be happy that he is dead.

We are told he masterminded many attrocities, that this is fact and irefutable yet America couldn't put him on trial.

However history records this moment, the end of an eira, the beginning of the end for islamic extrimism or just another death in a never ending war based on ignorance from both sides, it will not be forgotten quickly

Thank you, Big Picture, for creating a place for citizens of so many places to have these mind opening discussions!!

I have to side with Martin Luther King Jr. on this one. This death is not something to celebrate. As an American citizen, I am sorry for all families who have been effected by our government's greed and our inability to be able to steer our country onto a more peaceful route.

Our country is run by a bunch of men who are not thinking with their brains, but with their penises... Poking it's head into countries where we don't belong , not thinking about the consequences of our actions and the massive explosion of STD's that we're bound to get, only to destroy ourselves. For these selfish and immature acts, I am sorry. I can only say there are many, many of us who don't agree with the acts of our government and are doing our best to protest and petition so this doesn't happen again.

the event of osama bin laden's death is nothing more than an assassination. if anything at all it will if it has not already done is encourage heinous attacks on the western world. the extremist "terrorist" cells have been in place since and even prior to 9/11 as most of us realize. we are dealing with a patient, determined, massive, internationally placed group of people. my concerns are that their "wheels of mayhem and destruction" are in motion to inflict as much bloodshed and kill as many "innocent" men, women, and children as they can to further disrupt a planet that already has been rocked and is already unstable in so many arenas. keep faith in your God, however you perceive he or she and keep prayer in your agenda. may God bless all mankind.

"Create in the lost a remembered spirit of yourselves which examples God who came in the form of man and was a self sacrifice to those He so generously created." -Mother Teresa

May God use this to pierce the hearts of those who do evil, for the glory of Himself, that their hearts might be turned from such things. I ask that God, even as hard as it may be, softens Americas' hearts, as well as mine, to rejoice and only boast in Him and Him alone; although our first desire is to boast in America's justice, victory, and in the death of our country's worldy enemy. Can we love America, and respect those in authority as the Word says to, with the same heart that adores You before any kingdom? If not, I pray that God shows us individually how to do so. May God strengthen the sorrowful and broken hearts that were affected by 9-11 and any other attack that was placed on America. I hope you find peace in the One who supplies it. Most importantly, may all and any of this, be completely for nothing but the glory of God. Last but not least, I am extremely proud to be an American. God truly bless America.

I just want to understand the different versions of this history:

First Osama got killed in the shotting after using a lady as a human shield. He received two shots, one on the chest and one on the head and the lady died too.
Question: Why they killed the guy instead of capturing him?

Later on the lady wasnt dead anymore but got shot on the leg. In this version Osama didnt have a gun.
Question: So Mariners shot an unarmed person?

He was unarmed and one of his guards killed him so he would not fall into the US hands.
Question: So we should assume the invasion was a failure as the main target was lost?

The guy was buried at sea.
Question: In a straight line, Abbottabat is 700 miles or 1200 km from the nearest coast. Did they travel all this way to dump Osama into the ocean? Really?

Honestly, this history has more questions than information and I would not be surprise if he is now very alive receiving a "cuddle" from the Uncle Sam in a secret prison or so...

The people that think Osama is still alive area also probably the ones who think Obama isn't a citizen and we never landed on the moon. Osama's death is a blow to terrorist organizations around the world. They know if he's dead, and no body is needed to prove that to them. As Obama said... believe what you want, you won't hear from Osama again.

He was buried at sea within 24 hours in accordance with Muslim practices.

"President Barack Obama ordered grisly photographs of Osama bin Laden in death sealed from public view on Wednesday"

When the USSR got into Afghanistan, it did not invent any Osamas for that. They just created the term "international duty". Thousands of people died for that "international duty". Almost million of Afghans was killed. Then USSR run out of money and the new term was created - "new thinking". This term was used to leave the Afghanistan. All who were busy killing the civilians are still treated as heroes through nobody can clearly explain what USSR was doing in Afghanistan.

I think the fiction of George Orwell is childish prattle in comparison with what we have now on this planet.

for those who think they are christian's : we are not allow to kill people, killling one will not change a thing rather than spark another war. It's a sin.

for those who think they are moslem's : do not protect someone just because you're having the same religion nor deem killing as Jihad. Killing is a sin.

everybody in this world is equal, we are all human, have right to live and have right to believe on what we believes. No one in this world has a right on someone's death. If this world can't make peace, then start from yourself, make peace! stop the hatred! stop a never ending revenge.

Dear Friends, though it is glad to note that a No.1 terrorist is dead, I wonder whether the entire episode is a drama. though lot of people raised doubts on the killing, DNA test and burial on the winkof the eye, it seems that it makes sense. Please have a look at picture No.8. if an aircraft (big or small) falls down, doesnt it catch up flames ? doesnt the un-plastered wall get a crack, there is no sign of even a single brick falling down. Even if you think scientific, the aircraft should be travelling at some speed and the trajectory can be traced to some extent by looking at the ground where it fell.... atleast it should drag on for a few metres is nt it ? it looks like a toy aircract kept on display at a museum. isnt it interesting toponder

Wow guys..this is just all retarded that everyone is in such conflict over this. Telling someone that celebrating a death isn't good wont stop them from celebrating. Osama and his buddies were celebrating when many of our innocent American friends died. This life is going to be nothing but war from now on. There really isn't anything we can do about it. If people want to celebrate, let them. America is supposed to be free, so let them do whatever they want with their lives. I really don't think America would go through all this trouble saying he is dead if he really wasn't personally, but that is just my own opinion. Everyone just needs peace with God in their lives. Once you have God you will be different. You won't want to celebrate a death. So God help all of you.

I would be more than happy to pull the trigger to get rid of that insane mad man just as I would have done to people like, Hitler, Mussolini, Tojo, Stalin.

"USA White House don't show pictures with Osama dead because it's to brutal". It's mental manipulation done by amateurs: before Osama was dead, the helmet cameras of the super-killers from SEALS recorded images with Osama alive, even for at least 1 second. These images can not be displayed? Are to brutal? Since "chemical weapons" from Irak, White House and CIA do not even bother to make good professional manipulation.

Now they claim they had to execute Bin Laden immediately because -supposedly- he was planning another* terrorist attack on the US soil (probably on 9/11 to "celebrate" the 10 year anniversary and probably his target was the railroad network).

Does ANYONE actually believe this bullcrap? They said they found evidence of his planning inside the Pakistani mansion. Is there ANYONE naive enough to believe documents were NOT forged by the CIA?

*another= assuming Bin Laden and Al Qaeda actually DID 9/11. Because there's never been any proof of this. The only proof was Bush Jr. appearing on TV in front of a shocked nation and declaring "Al Qaeda did this". And I say "My aunt did this". So believe me, let's go after my aunt who did 9/11.

We all know that Osama was the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks. Osama not only attacked America, he attacked the world. "WORLD TRADE CENTER", the words speak for themselves. Osama has even said, he was the mastermind' in a few of his earlier posted videos. We all know that Osama has killed or has had thousands of innocent people killed around the world by his followers, even his own innocent people in many mid-Eastern countries. All in the name of Religion, Men, Women' and children has been killed in their Allah's name, YOUNG or OLD' GUILTY or INNOCENT it doesn't matter to people like Osama' who dies.
I am happy Osama is dead, I am sure I can speak for millions of good people around the world who feel the same as I. I have never rejoiced in the death of a person in my life, but this man "Osama" I rejoice and feel relieved. But I also feel that all the hate and killing of the innocent people is far from over. Sure' it's the end of Osama, but not the end of this battle. There's a lot more Osama followers out there that will follow right in his footsteps. Now let's all just sit back and enjoy all the conspiracy theories. I know their dancing in the streets on this one! :)

What I believe on the news of Osama Bin Laden, ALIVE OR DEAD!
Osama Bin Laden was one of the “Most Wanted Terrorist” for America. He was convicted of doing the 9/11 Twin Tower attack that killed so many people. Also in many other cases, he was been involved.

Suddenly on Monday 02nd May 2011, I found out in the news that Osama Bin Laden was killed in the shoot out and his body was buried in the sea. I am not really satisfied on this issue and see that if there are reasons that suggest Osama Bin Laden is dead, their can be reasons that imply him been still alive. On the other hand, the way how evidence was presented in the news, it may seem that he is dead.

Why I believe that Osama Bin Laden still may be live?
There are few reasons that would still make me personally think that Osama Bin Laden can be alive. They are because quite a few times, I noticed Osama Bin Laden death in news in previous news long time ago. The photo shown is not clear. The operation only took 40 minutes and the body was thrown in the sea. It is hard to believe that he might be in trouble with his bodyguards with his in the defence.
1) Previously few times it has been mentioned in the news:
I have always noticed quite a time that in the newspaper and Internet articles, they mention about Osama Bin Laden death. It was obvious, that it just a rumour because to catch someone like him is not going to be easy and also he would not die easily. It can be thee same case this time but, it seems obvious because; the news went on the whole day.
2) The Photo did not seem clear:
In the news, the photo was not clearly shown of what Osama Bin Laden looked like. The last time how Osama Bin Laden looked like years ago, he would not look the same because; his face would have changed. Also after injuries, in the photo shown, it did not satisfy me to believe that it would be Osama Bin Laden. The main reason was colour of his beard did not match to the one that he normally would have. There are reasons like this that makes it hard to believe whether it was Osama Bin Laden or not.
3) It only took 40 Minutes to finish the Operation:
Searching and tracking Osama Bin Laden was never easy for America or any other nations. Then suddenly, they found him and killed. In contrast looking at so many years of trying to catch him, it cannot be easy for any to do something in “40 Minutes”.
4) Did they tell Osama Bin Laden to surrender?
The whole point of CIA to use weapons in the operation is for their self defence. Also, they should only would someone, if they are getting violent. But in this case, they had killed Osama Bin Laden in the head to complete the operation. I do not see point of them shooting him in the place that can kill him. He should be caught alive and court trial should be set to expose the real culprits involved. If they had to shoot, they could have shot him in his leg to control him so at the end of the day, they could take him with him.
5) Osama Bin Laden was thrown on the sea:
If anyone is killed, CIA does not have the rights to throw the body away on the sea to dispose it. After someone is been shot or been killed by the CIA, the body has to be taken away of post-mortem. This implies the full examination of whether if that was Osama Bin Laden or not. How can I believe if this was Osama Bin Laden after thrown in the sea?
6) There would be bodyguard looking after Osama Bin Laden:
Osama Bin Laden is going to have a lot of bodyguard that is going to be in his defence. I do not see a way CIA would be able to get through to defeat him. Also there would be protection that would surround the building in depths to stop anyone coming through. Also Osama Bin Laden is likely to get the information in advance if the CIA is going to come.
7) It could Osama Bin Ladens Duplicate:
It is very obvious that they can be more than one person that would have the same face. The terrorist organisation does understand how important Osama Bin Laden is for them. As a result, they would not risk him and he would be staying elsewhere secretly where nobody would any anything. This could be a lot safer for him and would misguide the CIA. Can that not happen?
Why I believe that Osama Bin Laden may be dead?
On the other hand, I would believe Osama Bin Laden would be dead on news that was presented. The DNA sample and family getting caught shows concrete evidence. The place where he was found contains terrorist camps and there he was killed.
1) In the news it was shown very obviously:
The news introduces live pictures from where Osama Bin Laden was killed. It was not just one news channel, but more that one news channels showed the same the news and in the same style to depth. This implies that it can be real and evidence was introduced in depth on how the operation was taken step by step.
2) The DNA Test Sample:
The DNA sample would introduces symptoms that Osama Bin Laden would have and could match it with what they have and see if it concurs. The DNA Sample would make it much obvious. This can imply if it was Osama Bin Laden killed in the shoot out.
3) One of the family members is caught:
Wherever Osama Bin Laden would go, it would not just be his bodyguard; but his family would follow as well. As a result, in this operation, one of his family members were killed and injured. Also during the investigation, anyone caught from his family can reveal truth.
4) The USA president Barack Obama announced the death of Osama Bin Laden specially:
USA president Barack Obama had specially come to announce what had happen and this makes it obvious because; he would know first. Also the president in any nation would be trusted easily and would come out with information that exists. Moreover, it would have been the president that would have sent the CIA to accomplish the operation.
5) Most of the terrorists/terrorist camps are in Pakistan and Osama Bin Laden was their:
In Pakistan, it has been proved that they have terrorist camps and they train them in Pakistan on those activities. Also, it is likely that Osama Bin Laden would have hidden there because it was report that he his residence in Pakistan.
6) All of Osama Bin Laden guards were killed:
For CIA to get hold of Osama Bin Laden they would have to kill his bodyguards and that would have happened. This is because; CIA has trained officers with them that can control the situation and that would have helped them to get rid of Osama Bin Laden later. This time, they could have come with better officers and way to approach the operation.

What happens if Osama Bin Laden dead?
The General Public:
If Osama Bin Laden is dead, the people would feel relieved in terms that their revenge is taken. This is because; a lot people had died and their family and relatives wanted justice. As a result, they got it. Moreover, they would also believe that major terrorist attacks would not be carried out and the general public would feel a lot safer in that way.
Nations:
Other countries would be satisfied in terms that terrorist would not attack easily because; they would understand the consequence. People that have their relative living in America and if they lost them on the 9/11, they would be relieved just like how the people in America are. Also without the main leader it is not going to be easy for them to prepare anything. In another nation, they would not have any contacts because; it will only be Osama Bin Laden that would have higher contacts wherever they would want to have terrorist attacks on another nation or not. As a result, not just America but other people from other nations would be a lot safe. This introduces positive impact on other nations.
The Prime Ministers and Politicians:
One of the major issues for the Prime Ministers and Politicians was to deal with the political issues, which widely involved terrorist attacks and killing of innocent citizens. This would have made a big difference in terms they would not have be a lot worried as it has brought an end to it by the death of Osama Bin Laden. As a result, they can concentrate on other areas that would be beneficial to them and how they can develop the society and community better.
Other terrorist would be demoralised:
The terrorists would not be able to do anything without the support of their main person. Also the death of Osama Bin Laden would have put them is a large shock. Besides, many of their people were killed in the operation and they had to face a lot of damages. This shows negative influence as overall and they would need time to regroup and more importantly select who is going to be the “boss” for them. There can be dispute internally and can break the group down a lot more.

What happens if Osama Bin Laden is Alive?
The General Public:
For Osama Bin Laden being alive was never any benefit to the American citizens as to what they had experienced. Also, they would not have gained their revenge or justice for what they had lost. The main drawback to them would be that they may experience another serious terrorist attack if Osama Bin Laden is alive. As a result, the general public life is still in danger and they need to be a lot careful.
Nations:
Osama Bin Laden contains several networks around the world. It is not only Osama Bin Laden but, any terrorists from any terrorist organisations would have the network connection in more that one location and other nations. In future, if any terrorist attack is going to happen in another nation, nobody is going to know. That would only be because; the main person that if declared dead happens to be alive for some reason. This implies that several nations would still under the terror threat ad they would not find out who is responsible for it.
The Prime Ministers and Politicians:
The Prime Ministers would not be able to focus on other ways how to develop the society and community into a better atmosphere. This would only be because; the main terrorists are still alive and they could do anything to spread disturbance around the world. As a result, it makes it much harder for Prime Ministers and Politicians to put any of their plans into practice.
Other terrorists would be encouraged:
Other terrorists would feel confident and they would not have to worry. Also to build larger group, it would be much easier approach. This implies that in all ways they have the benefit and are able to can execute their plan easily of a terrorist attack. As a result, they can intimidate the public and make it really unsafe for the people.

Pakistan’s Involvements:
Pakistan has been involved in terrorist attacks many times and proved by secret agencies. The London bombing in July 2005, few suspects from Pakistan were arrested. Also, they have been blamed for the Mumbai attack in 2008 and one of their terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab is arrested in India. It also been shown that Pakistan are running terrorist camps to train the terrorist and suicide bombers. Referring to the history of Pakistan and their politics, I believe that Pakistan was hiding Osama Bin Laden to keep him safe from the trouble and away from America. It may seem that only looking at history, it may not be enough to prove Pakistan involvement but, there are other evidence putting together with the history would make them one of the bigger culprits. On the whole think Pakistan says that they do not know anything, but I totally disagree with this because Osama Bin Laden was hiding in Pakistan from a long time and want him to be safe as years ago it was reported by the American secret agencies. This implies that they are hiding the truth and want to get away. If they did know anything in regards to this, they should have taken action in order to help the CIA and America.
Media’s Involvements;
Is the Media right all the time? The Media would want influence the story wherever they can to earn their USP (Unique Selling point). Also they have the advance technology to introduce Graphical images and build up on that to make up the story. If the audience response is going to be very highly positive, they are going to earn even more profit. There are some parts of the information’s presented by the media that does not satisfy me and may be other audience. The information shown in the news did not imply clearly how the operation was carried. In this operation they did not mention how many Osama Bin Laden bodyguards got killed by CIA. Also if the statistics were given, they would not be true and would be false. The whole point would be influence the news and make it more appealing to their audience to make then entertained and interested. They also mentioned that American CIA faced least problem. Can this be true? I believe that CIA would have faced a lot of problem but to make CIA look strong, the Media would introduce the news in a different style. More over to introduce their success, they showed how the operation was carried out step by step. This does not prove anything to me as for the media it is a lot easier to put the pictures together and talk on what they believe. As a result, the media are aware the audience in going to be believe.
Political involvements:
Do we all know what is going on in the politics? There are two ways politics are going to be played on this issue. The people that believe Osama Bin Laden was a threat and they have got rid of him would believe that what happen was good. On the other hand, the people that want Osama Bin Laden to be alive for future would have played a game and hid in some other place, where he could be a lot safe. As a result, in the place of Osama Bin Laden, they would have someone duplicate that can frame the CIA. In this case, I would not believe just Pakistan, Afghanistan or America because; it would be altogether that want the share. The information can be pasted on secretly and the operation that was meant to be done by the CIA could have been leaked. As a result, they may still have Osama Bin Laden alive somewhere that nobody knows. All those politician and government in favour of Osama Bin Laden want is that the world should believe that he is dead at present. This may give Osama Bin Laden to an opportunity to attack later in the future.
Media and Politics combined involvements:
The Media are able to earn more of their USP (Unique Selling Point) by covering the political news. Whether the political news is right or wrong, it would not make any difference and they would show it to the audience. In the case of Osama Bin Laden, it was the same and also was based on the political involvement. The audience watching the news would always be excited to know the news about him. Also America were after the Osama Bin Laden all the way through for the 9/11 attack. Later in the future, suddenly the news show that Osama Bin Laden had been killed and that cherished smiles on the people. From my opinion, that it is one of the ways politicians want to gain the audience attraction and have used media to spread the message across. The success rate of the politician in using the media has been high in terms of how the audience responded and believed that their revenge is taken. Also they would believe that the nation is safe. Not just America, but other nations would see that America would be fighting the terror. It creates better impression of the politician in front of the audience and whenever they come on the news, the audience would blindly trust without knowing the truth.

Conclusion: My final point of view on this:
Looking at two different ways, they both counter with each other and do not explore what the truth is at all. This implies that truth is still not revealed and everything still seems to be hidden. To make it obvious and have the truth reveal, it was important for CIA to have the body in front to satisfy the audience. To make it more obvious, he should have to arrested alive. It is not just about bringing him alive in front but, mainly about exposing the real culprit because; the people believe it cannot be just Osama Bin Laden or Al Qaeda behind 9/11 attack as some people believe that it was George W Bush. People believe that George W Bush produced Taliban and Al Qaeda for his purpose. Can he not financially support them to have the political power? I would not personally blame the president but, there has to be someone from American political party that would have created the 9/11 to go on. Just by ending Osama Bin Laden life is not going to give American Citizen Justice as there has to be more names that are yet to be exposed. If anyone thinks to expose the name, that person would be killed so they fear the death. As a result, if the whole plot takes place only one person or a terrorist organisation gets blamed. On the other hand, the main person who prepared the plot would get away by saying that they were not available during the tragedy taking place. This is still not the end of it and there is yet to be exposed. To my point of view, the investigation on this case will still have to continue until the full truth has come in front. Not all the truth has come in front of the people and main mastermind are having a good life, which they wanted.

The commando raid was so much easier and more effective than a pre-emptive, illegal war, based on lies, waged against a country that had nothing to do with 911 or Saddam.

So many dead soldiers, so many dead civilians. Generations in debt from money borrowed from USA competitors, and no end in sight on the so-called "War On Terror"...all for what?

Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Perle, and Bush Jr. have the blood of untold thousands on their hands. USA has lost credibility worldwide...oh yea, and they didn't even have to raise taxes to pay for it....afterall your Great Grandkids will take care of it.

Moral of the story...if The USA wants to swagger onto the world scene on the high-horse of morality....we better make sure we're not actually riding a blind, stupid, donkey.

Mission Accomplished...indeed.

There's no muslim tradition about "sea burial".

I think this is actually avoiding muslim tradition, as in muslim tradition, somebody should be buried in earth, and since he was such evilness, so it was decided that he would not be buried in earth, but in the sea, to avoid martyrization

my theory

How much are all the "Rare Earth Elements" worth?
The ones needed to make your I-Pads, Plasma Televisions and Computers?
The ones that we don't have very much of here in USA?
The ones for which USA is competing with China?
The ones that are so "Rare", yet so vital for our economy?
The ones with which Afghanastan is loaded?

So, we invade Afghanastan to eliminate "Terror".
We invade Iraq to elimanate "Terror".
The former comes with the world's largest deposits of "Rare Earth" Elements" . The latter comes with the world's second largest proven reserve of Crude Oil.

So Osama is dead...for some reason I feel no safer.

Fooled me once, shame on you.
Fooled me twice, shame on us all.

Celebrating someone's death will not brings your mission to accomplished. bcoz if osama was truly death mind you that the second osama is in the white hause.To take you deeper in to this, ommit "B"from the name OBAMA and placed "S" inspite of it the result will be OSAMA instead of OBAMA.Above all, Obama is only targetting 2012election.

"A strong believer is better than a weak believer.The strong believer is not the one who throws his opponent to the ground in a fight,rather the strong one is the one who forgives his opponent when he has the opportunity to take revenge"(Prophetic saying).
our Prophet(peace be upon him) was not someone who lashed out at others just bcos they were not Muslims.He was someone who loved and was loved by others irrespective of religion.everyone adored him for his refined manners,eloquent speech and high morale.
it was a time of intense conflict between Muslims and the Jews.There was a little Jewish girl who would throw trash at the Prophet when He passed by her house.The Prophet used to bear it and say nothing at all.one day,he didnot see her.He inquired after her and heard that she was sick.He went to the girl's house,visited her and prayed for her recovery.
when a Jewish funeral procession passed by Him,he stood up as a mark of respect.This was our Prophet,filled with kindness,mercy and love, which he spread to those around him.
"And Persevere.Verily God is with those who persevere."(Quran)
let us all Muslims unite and say "NO" to these terrorists who kill people in the name of our religion.

i dont think he is dead either. i want pics.

i think osamas family still owns half of new york.
nobody wanted to give him a burial--bs. you KNOW that some church in the US (with more better people in it's congregation) would have taken him and given him a decent christian burial.
muslim burial and respect--first of all: on his side, facing mecca. why should we care about respecting somebody who killed all those people? i dont hink he did it by himself though, he had help here in this country.

Osama is dead

Posted by Samuel abiola omidotun May 11, 11 05:47 AM

I, for one, wish he was dead. I hope he is. But there is a big part of me that sees it differently.

Here's what I see explained to us:
A NAVY Seal specialist team was sent in.
Said team killed the target Osama Bin Laden.
The President himself watched the operation take place real-time from the helmet cams on the Seal team in the White House.
Target's body was extracted.
DNA testing confirmed it was Osama Bin Laden.
The body was disposed of at sea with full Muslim tradition.
No photos or video has been or will be presented to the public for verification as it will only make the US look distasteful.

Based on a reputable source, Osama is alive. The CIA has him in custody for interrogation. Why would the kill the head of a massive terrorist organization when he could provide information to defeat additional future planned attacks? You wouldn't, especially when you send in a much higher trained tactical team that can take him alive without issue. He doesn't need to be dead to obtain and confirm DNA. You announce to the world that he is dead and has been buried at sea so that no one will bother to look for him, while you interrogate and torture the answers out of him.

You would be a horrible leader of a nation to have it go any other way. Taking the head off a snake doesn't stop the scorpions from attacking from afar.

Dead or not, no matter. But we must feel relief, not happiness for his death.
Bin Laden did much more damage to muslim world than any one in history. Muslims are suspect, guilt or not, anywhere. But the damaged to democracy he has caused goes far from terrorism. Behind the Anti-terror War curtains, bad objectives are being reached. The political actions of last presidents in USA had transformed the Eisenhower USA ,from the most loved contry in the world (even in Japan, Italy e Germany, and by the people behind Iron Curtain) into the Bush USA, the most hated county, due to support undemocrat dictators everywhere, to engage into unjustified (if we ignore MONEY) wars, and Mr. Obama partiality in arabic riots. Mr. Obama started presidence as a Hope for all the world, as a God that would solve the Israel issue, the populists left governs (ditactors or only liers...) in Latin America, Africa and Asia, to lead Arabic region into peace, respecting the right of all people to choose their form of democracy, observing universal human rights, to solve the Koreas and Taiwan issues, to atract the ex-comunist world into European Union, to solve the economic crysis without people sacrifice...aff, a God mission, not a Man mission, but that was the (irrational) hope in everyone. But if he can replay the Kennedy, Carter and Clinton in Foreign Policy, and Roosevelt in economic issues he will be a GREAT MAN.

So from what i have heared osama was killed, unarmed!
why would someone kill an unarmed man, so it was a pure revenge thing, this lowers ourself to the same level as those al-quaida figures who fight dirty (suicide bombers, IED's). I even think there are rules against this (warfare rules, humanitarian rules). I'm not defending the fact he shouldn't been killed, i'm just saying we are better, more civilised then this.
The seals who shot osama earn 36000dollar a year (so i'm told) there was a price on Osama's head of at least 17million dollars, they get nothing. I can allmost cry when I know that American soldiers put their lives on the line (every day) for such a small wage!

read the newspapers; today at least 80 people have died in Pakistan in an act of revenge by the Taliban... all because of this impulsive deed of the US... how many more will have to die before the bloodthirst of the US and the Taliban is stilled?

to all Americans; why don't you first clean up the mess in your own country before trying to "help" others in the Middle east? (and making a wreck of it in the process)

wtf are you americans thinking... killing someone without trial (no matter how terrible this person might be) is just not civilized and goes against the universal declaration of human rights.
