    I am very skeptical about this. Hmm… don't think it really happened.



  2. 102

    i thought he was years ago
    anyway you should be killed mario



  3. 103

    Why did they bury him at sea before the press and others was able to see him for real.
    This is going to create several new conspiracy theories.



  4. 104

    Now put an end to this crazy expensive war, maybe?



  5. 105

    over $100 billion dollars later, massive destruction and thousands upon thousands of lives lost…and it's all ok now because one among many is dead. if history teaches us anything, he will be replaced by one of the hundreds like him waiting in the wings for this very opportunity to take his place.
    but if you want to pretend that you're safe just so you can sleep at night, okay you're safe, but you're not really.



  6. 106

    People are stupid for celebrating, it will probably lead to revenge attacks…



  7. 107

    Wonderful news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 10 years too late, but still good news for the American people and the world. Rot in Hell you murdering bastard.



  8. 108

    Excellent speech Mr President!



  9. 109

    Re: NookiesWA – Er it would have been convenient for ANY president at ANY time seeing as he was the most wanted man in the world…



  10. 110

    And it took only 10 years to find and kill him. Well done, USA! No, seriously, nice job.



  11. 111

    Re: kalijuri – Right on. Im glad he's dead. But this is immpeCCable timing, post birth certificate release. A little too close for re-election. What I gather from this is that establishment wants him re-elected. Wall Street will be up up up for about a week. Then back down to where its should be and gold and silver will be skyrocketing shortly. They are framing Obama to be a war time bush republican which would make re-election real. Still, Obama sold out to wall street before he was elected because the establishment created him. When the college records come out……COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY…….ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI.



  12. 112

    Zbigniew Brzezinski, alongside Robert Gates of the Carter Administraion, created Al Queda in 1977, and Zbig likes to take credit for this in interviews outside of the United States (See France).



  13. 113

    Good work Obama and the troops. While I do not believe the PR campaign or the fact that 'Bin Laden' really matters at this point….I do believe that this will and should bring some kind of closure to the families if 9-11. On a personal note, I hope the families of Cantor Fitzgerald, floors 102-105, north tower, find some kind of redemption or peace with themselves. This is for you. I (and my father) miss you all dearly.



  14. 114

    Osama wasnt the "leader" he was just a face i bet he isnt even death , even so im not against this message if my family died on 9/11 even if i didnt believe Osama was the responsible for this it would still be a relief as in another step for this war to be over



  15. 115

    Shows what a douchebag you really are Hilton when you originally had this posted under R.I.P. Real compassion there for the WTC 3000. You think real news sites posted RIP when announcing this story? Stick to what you know best, posting vids about 8 year old Asian boys who dress in lingerie and dance sexily for the enjoyment of you and your fellow pedophiles. You are a classless, immature low-life.



  16. 116

    Re: PinkSnake – We cannot finally bring our troops home. 9-11 launched us into the middle east and we are there for GOOD. We have just created 7 new wars, which will eventually call for a draft and signing up for the military will be one of the only jobs for hire.



  17. 117

    Congrats and a big thank you to US troops, now wipe oute the rest of those fucking muslims , starting with the ones that live in the West.
    Obama must be overjoyed, that's a great thing it happened during his presidency.



  18. 118

    DONALD TRUMP WANTS TO SEE DEATH CERTIFICATE! HAHAHA



  19. 119

    OH I FORGOT DONALD TRUMP WANTS TO SEE A LONG FORM DAETH CERTIFICATE!! HAHAHA



  20. 120

    I am glad he is gone, but doubt he was in charge any more. There are THOUSANDS MORE LIKE HIM out there….. and now, because we took his body, not allowing a proper Muslim Burial…… I HOPE, WISH, but know, we will have attacks STEPPED UP AGAINST US BECAUSE OF THIS. …… I know, it had to be done, I do not congratulate Obama, he just sat in the WH, he knows NOTHING about where to fight, but, I appauld the Military, who has lost so many, the Military, who needs more respect then it gets. Maybe he will fulfill HIS LAST CAMPAIGN PROMISE of not having troops in the middle east



  21. 121

    I'm Canadian and I just wanna say congratulations to you America. Let's just hope there isn't some kind of devestating retaliation now. CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG!!!???!!!

    122

    HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN.. THE SKIES, THE SKIES ARE CLEAR AGAIN…. SEE YA BITCH!!



  23. 123

    Re: Dying_Slowly – Bush didn't send your troops because of the terrorism, he sent your troops in hope of finding oil. I've never, ever supported American wars, but I'll always support the men and women dying for their country.

  24. JBV says – reply to this


    124

    Is he dead? Buried at Sea due to Islamic beliefs? Hmmm. Where is the pic of the body?



  25. 125

    OBAMA KILLED A FAMILY MEMBER I DONT BELIEVE IT



  26. 126

    Americaaaaaaaaa, FUCK YEAH! :D



  27. 127

    THE FACT IS THAT, TEN YEARS LATER THERE IS NO PROOF THAT BIN LADEN WAS INVOLVED IN 9/11. IT WAS AN INSIDE JOB BY THE REPUBLICANS TO CREATE A BIG BROTHER POLICE STATE. BIN LADEN WAS JUST A SCAPE GOAT



  28. 128

    People have been waiting years for this to happen wheres the prof people would want to see his body to know that hes payed for what he did 10 years ago .



  29. 129

    Sure he died, HOW MANY FUCKING INNOCENT PEOPLE DIED IN PERSUIT OF HIM??



  30. 130

    THEY SHOWED SADAMM HUSIEN DEAD ON T.V….
    WHY WOULDN'T THEY DO THE SAME TO SOMEONE THAT WAS MORE WANTED ?
    I SMELL BULLSHIT………
    IM SURE HE'S DEAD BUT WHY WOULDN'T THEY SHOW THE WORLD INSTEAD THEY THROW HIS ASS IN THE OCEAN….
    WTF…… SOMETHING ISN'T RIGHT, WHY WOULD YOU THROW HIM THE OCEAN THAT IS THE DUMBEST SHIT IVE EVER HEARD….
    NOW THAT WE'VE GOTTEN RID OF THE BIGGEST THREAT TO OUR COUNTRY WHEN ARE WE GONNA START GETTING RID OF THE TERRORIST IN OUR WHITE HOUSE .



  31. 131

  33. 133

    America is #WINNING



  34. 134

    Re: MarioMonjack – Yeah, typing in caps really gets your point across. Why don't you impress us with all the facts and proof you've exhaustively collected over the last 10 years that it was an inside job. C'mon big boy, impress us.



  35. 135

    Good job Obama for doing the impossible yet again…..
    www.thethrifters.net



  36. 136

    There is more to this people, sorry but something is just not right. And then he was burried at sea? I want proof. This all does not sound right.



  37. 137

    USA! USA!! USA!!! USA!!! USA!!!!! USA!! USA! USA!! USA!!! USA!!! USA!!!!! USA!!
    USA! USA!! USA!!! USA!!! USA!!!!! USA!! USA! USA!! USA!!! USA!!! USA!!!!! USA!!

    WE GOTT HIMM!!



  38. 138

    nothing of this would never be necessary if we, the United States, didn't give bin laden and his people arms and training in order to kill the russian 2 décades ago. violence only generates violence.



  39. 139

    Blood thirsty Americans. Is Bush now going to give back the lives of the millions of iraqis and Afghani's that he murdered?



  40. 140

    Re: PinkSnake – hahahahahaha, no, the troops are returning back to your country when you finish raping that innocent country



  41. 141

    Re: OriginalRecipe – hell no! i was watching cnn all night!



  42. 142

    LOL people believe everything was he even real to be dead ???



  43. 143

    Are we sure? Has Donald Trump PERSONALLY inspected the death certificate?



  44. 144

    You are disgusting Moorio if you originally posted this as RIP.



  45. 145

    Being From NYC I am thrilled he's dead. But of course I'm a bit uneasy that they will be pissed and try and get us again. There really is no end to this. But hopefully the US can secure our borders in the aftermath of this. It does make me feel good that the US found him finally and that anything is possible. It's a good day for NY. It isn;t about politics its about PEACE!!!!!



  46. 146

    Such wonderful news and so wonderful that no Americans were hurt. A great day to be an American.



  47. 147

    It's not just America who is celebrating - believe me. Al Qaeda were thought to be behind the 7/7 London Bombings as well. Most of the world will be celebrating - those who believe in peace, religious tolerance, and freedom, anyway.



  48. 148

    Re: Amina91 – Was he even real? Are you even sane?! Although I can fully understand all the celebrations, Al-Qaeda (and the Taliban) is still very much alive and as others have commented, it will only be a matter of time before they retaliate against the US for killing their 'holy' leader. Ayman al-Zawahiri will probably take over and become the new 'face of terror'. Bin Laden's death is a step in the right direction, not the victory many hoped for.



  49. 149

    Re: kalijuri – u r a moron



  50. 150

    He was killed and despatched so quickly, seems supicious to me. I'm waiting to see photo's of the carcass.



  51. 151

    God bless America and any countries this "human" has affected. This is truly an amazing way to wake up. I can't stop smiling. Justice really has been served. You can run, but you can't hide. Don't mess with the U.S.



  52. 152

    RIP all he did was got America back for bombing his land and other innocent countries. Do Americans have any idea how many innocent children died in bombings of Libia, Serbia and the Middle East. If Bin Laden didn't organize the attack on the US someone else would have. They may as well prepare for a war now, the Middle East will get back at them for killing their leader.



  53. 153

    It would be funny if he was still alive and Pakistan confirmed this just to get America off his case, why did they throw his body in the sea they are hiding something.



  54. 154

    So you people realize that 9/11 was an inside job right???



  55. 155

    Re: lightassassin – And how many innocent people did he kill? He deserved this, and has had it coming for YEARS.



  56. 156

    Re: booyaa123 – yeah yeah yeah and those people who flew their buildings into the terrorist planes…..You are ignorant



  57. 157

    Say what what you want about President Obama, I think he is going a good job and the death of Osama Bin Laden will down the the books during Obama's presidency.

    But now, the country has to be on high alert on case of retaliation, which I hope doesn't happen. Hopefully soon the troops can come home safely. I'm so sick and tired of all this war.

  58. Bytch says – reply to this


    158

    So how many people actually believe all of this bull shit? Wow, apparently a lot. You guys are fools. No troops will be sent home, especially when the US can now focus on invading Iran. Oil 4 life! Fail.

    Re: Anabella Smart – You should change your last name to Dumb



  60. 160

    I hope that bastard is getting tortured in hell!



  61. 161

    Re: Bytch – We aren't saying the war is over and that everything will be ok now. We are just happy that bastard is dead so victims and their families can atleast get a little closure. Im sure the troops will still have to stay in Afghanistan



  62. 162

    Re: HibzYeah – Are you insane????



  63. 163

    Re: Anabella Smart – Fuck you, bitch.



  64. 164

    Another example of why god fearing people shouldn't run countries. To avoid conspiracy theories and to have him judged here and now and not in a place that is not proven to exist.. to have him fear his every breath.. he should have been captured and held and truly paid for everything he has done. He should have lived to know he didn't beat you all.. instead he believed just that until he was taken out. Your people saved him.. gave him the easy way out. As long as he's gone I guess.. but I'm plugging my ears and lala'ing through the next billion days of conspiracy theories and whining. Congratulations to all who are truly happy in how it all went down. And I agree.. it isn't over.



  65. 165

    Re: Anabella Smart – They're not hiding anything, they gave him a proper burial, which according to Muslim tradition has to happen within 24 hours after passing. They identified him, took some dna, it proved to be a match and buried him at sea. Why? Because it's probably a smart move as it shows respect to the Muslim community (so NOT to Bin Laden or Al-Qaeda or other extremists, but to the community as a whole) which could very well improve political ties and, in contrast to Saddam's grave, followers can not visit it and turn it into a holy burial site.



  66. 166

    Obama personally met with Osama and tried to counsel him on good citizenship and being a more loving human being. When it became clear that the couseling wasn't working; Michelle secretly disconnected Osama diaylsis machine.



  67. 167

    I'll never forget when the 9/11 happened, the people from Afghanistan who supported Osama were jumping up and down, cheering and bragging that we will never find him….HA!



  68. 168

    Re: maggiegirl – 9/11 was an inside job I highly recommend you watch when false flags don't fly. Get informed WAKE UP!



  69. 169

    Good job Seals…:). Now let the facts come out the dust settle. This war on terrorism is not over. Word domination is ugly. Now that lights are on and the rats are running in Pakistan I'm curious to see how this shapes our relationship with them.



  70. 170

    Re: Anabella Smart – It's spelled Libya. Did you not have a globe as a child??



  71. 171

    Re: KickAssArmyChick – I wanted to thank you, my hat off to you and everyone else who was/is in the military and selfishly sacrifices for your country, not for politics or glory. Thank you for letting me feel safe enough to come on here and write whatever is on my mind without fear or hesitation. Thank you to my President who is cleaning up and doing his best despite all the disrespect his fellow Americans show him. Thank you to special intelligence officials who are nameless and work behind the scenes, I appreciate everything you do. Thank you God for letting me have the honor of being an American. I hope everyone cherishes these feelings of community and togetherness moments like these incite. We're all humans, people. Please never forget that



  72. 172

    How convenient that Obama announces this right after his birth certificate surfaces.

    This is all propaganda for this new campaign.

    don't buy any of it. I heard Osama died from kidney failure awhile ago..I think the timing of it now sounds suspicious.



  73. 173

    Re: MJJ – Bush ordered attacks when he was in office. don't give Obama any credit.



  74. 174

    Every time I read comments on political issues.. the ignorance of some people just baffles me… People are so brainwashed and mind warped its ridiculous.. I truly feel sorry for some of you.



  75. 175

    I posted on "W"'s page last night..my heartfelt thanks for the MISSION ACCOMPLISHED in Pakistan! It was HIS orders..HIS dedication to bringing justice to ALL of osama's victims and their families…his steadfast stance, never backing down even while being barraged with criticism from all directions. President Bush..you are the ONLY one with the backbone to stand up to the terrorists and FOR America! You are TEXAS TOUGH…and we are so very proud of you and so grateful that YOU were our LEADER on 9-11! (and boy do we miss you NOW even MORE!)



  76. 176

    Unlike many posters on here.. I will admit I am ignorant when it comes to some political issues because I don't truly know what to believe- but those political issues I do understand, I am of course opinionated on that. One thing I do know is that people constantly blame Barack for America's problems….American's are entitled and lazy!! So many people (OF ALL RACES) are content with sitting back and collecting unemployment checks. (PS I am American) one of my friends has been on unemployment for a year & she doesn’t do shit but drink & party every night- dropped out of “beauty school” and is just a leach and I’m sure there are so many cases like this. American’s always expect someone else to clean up our problems and bitch and complain all the damn time about every little issue. It takes time to rebuild an economy, and decisions are not handled solely by Obama, so rethink whose elected into congress and the senate as well.



  77. 177

    I wonder if Trump is going to demand to see the death certificate.. LOL



  78. 178

    :D



  79. 179

    We need more evidence because right now I just think it's a conspiracy and he's probably still alive 0.o



  80. 180

    Re: jennih789 – Well, you keep thinking that little girl! Forget about the official announcement, the fact other world leaders have commented on his death and just keep living in your own little world filled with paranoia. My god… this is global news and not exactly news you can just make up. Think for a moment, will ya! If Bin Laden had not been killed, the world would already have heard about it because he would've grabbed a camera and filmed himself saying something in the lines of 'You missed America, I am not dead, praise Allah'.



  81. 181

    I'm not the type of person to celebrate when a person dies, but thank God. Good job Obama, the CIA, and the American troops. But I'm not going to lie, I'm a bit scared of how pissed the Al Qaeda are and how they are going to react about all of this… hopefully they don't come and attack America for revenge.



  82. 182

    Re: Josh Meiforth – so much for you taste in men, he's hot alright cuz he's buriing in hell. so dumb



  83. 183

    anyone else hoping that south park does another episode on this guy!! it would be great



  84. 184

    Re: HILRAY – Seriously… Is that your sad attempt to comedy… Huge fail btw….



  85. 185

    It's irresponsible to report such news with a persuasive tone suggesting an assassination and murder is something to rejoice and celebrate.

    I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that." - Martin Luther King Jr.



  86. 186

    Osama Bin Laden is obviously not dead. It's too coincidental that it happened at this time - 10 years later after Bushes speech and when Obama needs re-election. If Osama is dead, he died 10 years ago most likely due to health reasons. You can check out more proof at www.osamabinladendead2011.com
