    Me too.

    I also like that our celebrations are pissing off Muslims around the world. :lol: Apparently, Americans are celebrating their own destruction. Oops. We bad.

    I think perhaps Muslims do not realize that America is much like Al Queda. It is not just a country. It is an idea, a concept of how to live, and we believe in that idea with more passion and more commitment than any non American can even begin to understand.

    just another blimp on the scene...another bump in the road....will this save the life of one american? we will never know....10 years in the making....and i still dont get it...why so long...why was he found right under out allies noses.....

    something aint right about this clusterfuck....i am not distracting or disrespecting anyone involved with the military that accomplished this.....perhaps the military was right...that bush never wanted to catch bin laden.....now its serves the purpose of obama to do it.....

    clinton, bush 2 were given chances to bring down bin laden and didnt do it....as in any situation...sometimes your competition makes one look good

    Firstly, Clinton had no legitimate reason to go after Bin Laden.

    Bush did. And he went after him. Sometimes I wonder if people have any concept of how difficult it is to track someone who has a solid network of support, massive resources, and the ability to travel quickly and without a paper trail. It's very easy to sit and judge from the cheap seats.... it is an entirely different situation when your neck is on the line.

    I think it wise not to judge anyone too quickly or too harshly with regard to Osama. Fact is, in the end, he was tracked down and brought to justice.

    Great to see

    I loved the scenes with FDNY and NYPD finally getting justice. It is a great day in the fight against terrorism. It saddens me how quickly this has been turned into a political event rather than celebrating a major blow against the perpetrators of 9-11

    I am glad Osama is dead however I don't understand why Muslims overseas are angry that people here are celebrating? alot of the people that are celebrating lost loves ones in the 9/11 attacks so of course they will be happy.

    To most of the Muslim world, bin Laden was not a hero. They look at him as a mass murderer who brought shame on their religion
