    TV is reporting that Osama bin Laden is dead; President Obama will make a late night address shortly.

    He has experienced a tense meeting with his maker, that is for sure!

    Finally, some truly good news about Osama Bin Laden! This is one person who I can say I am glad he is dead!

    Wow, so sudden, and out of nowhere.
    Ever since 9-11, I always wanted to see him brought alive before justice, and face the humiliation, then be executed.

    God bless those brave people who carried this action out, and God bless President Obama for giving the order. Justice is done!

    Already being referred to as "Obama's accomplishment." Should be a boost to his popularity and job performance approval, and ammo to campaign for his next term.

    Didn't have to have a national press conference at all, like usual.

    Could have let the media do their job. Instead, he reads a poorly-written speech to point the finger at himself.

    That list of relatives of 9/11 victims' relatives on the news crying and thanking thanking Obama for "giving us justice" is growing long. That's a lot of praise for something that was already in progress when he came into office.

    Yeah what a coincidence eh? It's pure politicing propaganda folks. In other words it's more lies to make the liars look good.

    Bin Laden was like the goose that laid the golden egg for the warmongering fools in Washington. He just happened to pop up whenever Bush was in trouble and now he pops up to give Obama a big boost. I suppose now they'll drag out a wax dummy and parade it front of the cameras while they all plan their next war on another sovereign nation that is no threat to us.

    To all the people celebrating in the streets, shouting, dancing, waving towels and flags, smiling and cheering, calling relatives and friends, and laughing:

    Proverbs 24:17-18

    Do not rejoice when your enemy falls,
    And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles;
    Or the LORD will see it and be displeased,
    And turn His anger away from him.

    Surely there are more Muslim countries we can start wars with. Iran has been looking at us funny...

    RIP Osama bin Laden

    And by 'RIP' I mean 'Roast In Perdition!'

    Oh, and I'm pretty sure that that Proverbs passage applies to enemies that are still alive. Osama bin Laden has now lost his chance to avoid God's anger (barring a last second conversion, of course, and I feel safe in guessing that it didn't happen).

    Since it was a drone that got him, he probably didn't even know anything. Silent killers, like these drones, are very effective.

    Now, I guess it's time for Poncho to chime in and warn us that these drones will one day be used on us!

    Actually you probably know by now that it wasn't a drone but a US military-like "team" effort.

    BTW, we already have "drones" surveying us.

    Through online satellite imagery anyone can see your house, cars, boats, outbuildings, gardens, ponds, forested areas, fields, etc, etc...

    You are misinformed. As usual.

    While I find comfort in the fact that this man has been stopped I also find no joy in his death as he now has lost any hope of eternal life and now has began an eternity of torment.

    I agree. There can be no joy in the loss of eternal life for anyone.

    Bush: 8 years strike outs. Obama: 2 years an home run

    This will help getting Obama re-elected.

    Reports are becoming clearer...which is natural.

    Apparently in the raid the SEAL team also discovered a "motherload" of physical intel including computers and documents. Sounds like this raid was more successful than initially imagined.

    I wonder what on bin Laden's hard drive...
