    I do not know. Gut instinct is our enemy is a religious group, there will be at least one reprisal attack on someone, and some fragmentation of Al Qaeda efforts, most importantly in their financial arm.

    Ossama Dead!

    Of all of the things I realistically expected from Obama this was on the top of my list. Thank You!!! Mr. President!! For a job well done!

    That is all.

    AQ is not what it used to be, hopefully if the pakis still saw him as a boogeyman they will get off their asses and maybe invade waziristan.

    And it can make Obamas decision easier as to leaving Afghanistan.

    In real practical terms, I am not sur really how much in concrete terms it means, it certainly is a moral victory in one sense.

    A true feather in President Obama's cap.

    But, to be honest with you, I would prefer that none of us had ever heard of OBL.

    Thank you to all those brave members of the military, especially those who specifically enlisted to fight that monster.

    1) We have a thread on this already

    2) All you partisan fuckwits need to just stfu. Seriously, that your first instinct is to use this for partisan hackery is sickening. I'm literally nauseated by your stupidity and partisanship.

    Did Obama kill him or hire him. What about Bill Clinton? He let him go. Lefties wouldn't have heard of Ben Ladin if Bush didn't respond to the Jihad that Clinton ignored for eight years.

    Yes, thank you.

    I am impressed with whoever got him, and Dubya deserves some kudos as well.
