Obama Gets Osama

Monday, May 2, 2011

Navy SEALS had held two rehearsals last month, with war cabinet monitoring from White House. The raid, originally planned for Saturday, was delayed a day due to weather. On Sunday, a U.S. helicopter hovered over a compound valued at $1 million dollars in Abbottabad, a suburb of the Pakistani capital, Islamabad, blew it up and departed in a reinforcement craft. This is how the fiery raid went down.

In the compound of about an acre, sat a three-story house surrounded by 12-and-18-foot-high walls, and seven-foot wall on the upper balcony, lived Osama bin Laden, the de facto leader of global al Qaeda network and the mastermind of the 9/11 terror attacks on the USA which resulted in the deaths of nearly 3,000 and fundamentally changed our way of life.

U.S. intelligence had discovered the compound by following a personal courier who worked for Osama bin Laden. U.S. officials never had anything directly proving that bin Laden was living in the compound which was discovered in August 2010, then it took two years to track him back to the compound.

The helicopter carrying the SEALS assault force appeared to stall as it hovered over the compound, producing heart-stopping moments for the officials back in Washington. Aides were fearful of another “Black Hawk Down” and “Desert One.” The pilot put the bird down gently in the compound, but couldn’t get it started again. The assault force disembarked and the team raided the compound.

Reports say bin Laden resisted the assault force, but was shot in the face during the attack. Reinforcements arrived and picked up the Navy SEALS. Photographs taken of the dead body used facial-recognition technology compared them with known pictures of bin Laden.

It was him.

    Amazing blow-by-blow account. The photos, while gruesome to look at, make me feel nothing. No compassion for this monster who gouged a hole in our national psyche and killed innocent 3,000 people on Sept. 11, 2001. If there is such a thing as healing, maybe now we can begin.

  2. Big Hank says:

    The SEALS who got Osama bin Laden were members of Seal Team Six. An elite group of special ops withing the Navy SEALS.

    They are reserved for the most dangerous and harrowing missions.

    The United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (NSWDG), commonly known as DEVGRU and informally by its former name SEAL Team Six, is one of the US’s most secretive Tier One counter-terrorism and Special Mission Units. These men are held in special regard by the military.

    Hillary Clinton, as cool as a cucumber, said at the State Department this morning:

    “This is America. We persevere, and we get the job done.”

  4. feminazi says:

    The strangest thing about the news reports last night were the throngs of young people chanting and dancing in front of the White House. Did the Obama team use social media and target the universities and colleges in Washington DC, asking the students to come on down and show the country and the world how pleased they were with the announcement of Osama bin Laden’s death? I wonder if the footage will show up in Obama’s reelection campaign film footage. His “Morning in America.”

  5. Mets Fan says:

    I, for one, am delighted the bastard is dead.

    His slaughter means the Feds have lost their favorite McGuffin to whip-up fear among the masses and turn Americans into helpless children.

  6. Steve says:

    That is clearly a fake picture! Come on.. They have got to do better than that..

  7. VicoDANIEL says:

    Looking forward, I’m very curious to know what OBL’s death will mean for justifying keeping 100,000 troops in Afghanistan, 50,000 troops in Iraq and spending more than $8 billion a month — borrowed from China, to maintain this massive machine?

    With OBL gone, I hope it means the troops will be redeployed home.

    If Obama does this, I might even learn to like again. If he milks the capture of OBL for political expediency, I will like Obama even less than I do now.


  8. Arizona Leatherneck says:

    So our friends, the Paks, were hiding and harboring Obama bin Laden for at least the last two years making fools of the U.S. government and the American people. Nice.

    This fact alone should put an end to all foreign aide for them. Hiding and harboring Obama bin Laden, is not what friends do. This is the behavior of enemies. We need to choose our friends more wisely.

  9. Rachel says:

    I have a contrarian view. Too bad Bin Laden wasn’t brought back to the US to stand trial for war crimes and murder. Then, in a civilian courtroom, the families and loved ones who lost people on 9/11 could address him face-to-face. Let a translator tell him how much he is hated and how much harm he caused to people whose only crime was going to work on the wrong day. But he’s dead now and he got what was coming to him.

  10. Vivzz says:

    I wonder now who will emerge as the new leader of al Qaeda? Will he seek legitimacy or continue to function as terrorist organization? These are the questions we should be asking as the months begin to pass.

  11. Harry says:

    Buh-bye, asshole. Enjoy your 14 virgins. Oh wait, those aren’t virgins. They’re goats.

  12. Estacada says:

    I think a trial would’ve disintegrated into a media and security circus.

    No, the head of the snake is gone now and the snake was buried at sea. This chapter is over and maybe now we can move on.

  13. The Real Adam says:

    Osama bin Laden is dead. Shot in the face by American Navy SEALS.

    In some existential way, justice was served and the universal was made whole again. If there is a Hell, I want to think whoever is in charge has a special placed waiting for Osama’s arrival.

  14. So many people were convinced, or let themselves be convinced, that Obama bin Laden was already dead. I wasn’t so sure.

    There were reports he traveled to Saudi Arabia for dialysis treatments. If this is true, can we all agree the Saudis are not our friends and allies? Because friends and allies don’t give safe passage to the most wanted man on earth.

    In any event, he’s gone now. His body dumped in the sea to rot and become fish food.

  15. DMason says:

    WaPo reported today Osama bin Laden used one of his eight wives as a human shield during the Navy SEAL raid. She was killed during the operation, struck in her body multiple times by sniper bullets. This tells you all you need to know about the terrible character of this turban wearing cretin. Osama bin Laden was an evil pig.

  16. Herminio Sanchez says:

    Well, unless Obama gets busted for having his tongue up some young intern’s snatch, a la, Monica Lewinsky, his reelection is now a slam-dunk.

    Nevermind $5 a gallon gas or failure to create jobs. Obama can run as the president who nabbed Obama bin Laden, and for this alone, I think the majority of the American voters will reward him with a kiss on the cheek and four, more years. Even though he doesn’t deserve it.

  17. JC says:

    I will not vote for Obama because even though he signed to ALLOW our wonderful Navy Seals and military/CIA to “yes” get him and probably based on Bushes interrogation policies,…I will not vote for Obama because his social/economical/immigration policies/border negligence,administration creeps,Holder,Napolitano are tyrannical losers.

  18. Jim says:

    It couldn’t have happened to a more worthy monster. About time.

  19. Randy Arroyo says:

    So Pakistan knew good and well that Osama had built a compound in Abbottabad five years ago and no one in the Pakistan government — our so-called partners in Bush’s “war on terrorism” bothered to tell Washington? Interesting. When the glee over killing Osama settles, maybe the Obama administration needs to reconsider the billions in foreign aide we give Pakistan each year? We’re paying them to rape us and it doesn’t feel very good.

  20. fran says:

    An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.
    Do we really think there are no more mad men in the world to perpetuate more madness?
    I find the USA chanting crowds to be really offensive, as if there were some kind of sports event & our team won.

    The only silver lining here would be if we can declare the *Mission Accomplished*
    & get the hell out of those two wars.

  21. Jolly Roger says:

    I have a contrarian view. Too bad Bin Laden wasn’t brought back to the US to stand trial for war crimes and murder.

    I have the same view. I wish that we had been able to take him alive, and sit him in solitary confinement for awhile. Then, I’d have had some questions for him, the biggest question being the circumstances surrounding that video he released 3 days before the 2004 Presidential election. I’d also ask him how it was he managed to slither out of Tora Bora.

    I may sound like a tin hatter, but I believe that Chimpy and Cheney WERE genuinely pleased with the news of bin Laden’s death. They have good reason to be. Very good reason.

  22. “I think a trial would’ve disintegrated into a media and security circus.”

    Estacada is correct.

    Had the US Navy SEALS captured Osama bin Laden, there would’ve been questions about:

    – Where to house him
    – Where to have the trial
    – Legal representative
    – Security
    – Global requests for media interviews
    – Will he be allowed to do Oprah

    A mess. I think for once the US got it right. He was the mastermind for killing 3,000 people, and we killed him on the spot. Done deal.

  23. Marcus Ybanez says:

    I’ll be curious to see how Obama plays this in the 2012 election.

    Will he use pictures of the Osama compound in his reelection video at the Democratic National Convention hootenanny in North Carolina in August, 2012? I don’t see how he can avoid it.
