Default Posted in the New York Times, his obituary

There are a lot of details about his life in this article that I was not aware of. He was raised in a world of privilege and he adopted a philosophy far different than ours. Awful, scary, sad, and disastrous to the world what one man can do.

While this is a good thing to happen, I too think we need to not be to joyeous about this. As others have said here there are others who will gladly step into his shoes. Remember along with the announcement it was stated that reprocussions will perhaps follow. I think I heard that the alert has risen for terror attacks. We should pray for our service-men and women BUT also for our country!

My question to your folks who've already served..."if the evil-doers will want to revenge his death, why did we make the announcement that we killed him?" Just curious!

I had long thought that he was dead (either by special forces OR because of his health issues) and that we kept him "alive" just because the thoughts of retaliation.

I hope and pray there is no retaliation but I doubt that will be the case.

So, for now, I'll rejoice in the removal of something as evil as Osama Bin Laden and pray that this will end a tragic chapter in the history of the U.S. Americans deserve to celebrate this but, sadly, still be vigilant.
I guess being fearful following something like this is something we all think about. But remember, this sends a message of those who follow in his footsteps that we can and will get you too!

We must and will stay vigilant in the aftermath of this great victory for our country and the souls of the 9/11 victims. I salute our military and the Navy Seals who pulled this mission off without loss of American life.

Default Osama

They killed him so that they did not have to go through the years of agony-for us and the free world that imprisionment would bring about . If he was still alive , no american would be safe from the hostage taking efforts of AQ . They would use hostages as ransom. The bleeding hearts would bemoan the conditions of his imprisionment and he would serve them as a living martyr.

Default a day to remember...

Today remembering the many families that have lost loved ones from 9/11 to today due to what this man set in motion.

It will be interesting to see the spin that put on this by radical Muslims.

Default Dead better than trial

Thank goodness they just killed him instead of having him brought here for trial in NYC or elsewhere.

Default American Justice Catches Up To Osama Bin-Laden

This morning Americans learned that justice has finally been delivered to the master mind of 9-11 Osama Bin Laden. How fitting that he was finally brought to justice at the hands of the elite Navy Seals in a very well planned and executed special operations mission last night that resulted in him being killed in a fire fight. His location was determined based on intelligence gathered by our Intelligence Agencies, found the compound well inside Pakistan. After 6 months of careful planning and confirming of intelligence and Osama’s location, the order was given yesterday to capture Osama.

President Obama delivered the news late last night from the White House. For the first time in almost ten years since the 9-11 attacks Americans have a real reason to celebrate and take pride in America and her power. The message is very clear: Mess with Americans and we will get you no matter how long it takes no matter the cost! That was made clear last night and this morning it is a good feeling to be an American.

Default Where are the flags?

Seems to me everyone should be flying their flages, just as if it were a national holiday. I just walked around and didn't see many, other than mine and a few standing flag poles. Get you flags flying. Today should be celebrated!

Alive some lawyer would have got him off on a technicality or other BS. You got to protect his rights don't ya know. If I had my way I'd have buried him with a dozen pigs.
