to anyone who doesn't respect and appreciate the Seals and BOTH the Presidents hard work to take down this disgusting man, you are a pathetic excuse of an american citizen and you should be ashamed of yourselves. we should be yelling out our happiness in the street, not critisizing the great people who brought him down. he killed THOUSANDS and if you want to critisize the great justice that got brought to him, in any way, then i think you can all just go join al-queda youselves

With all the hoo har about OBL's death people have forgotten the process of law. Osama was pronounced guilty without a trial and the other day, executed without a trial. This is a travesty of justice. But then, "Dead men tell no tales". It served the US governemnt well to shoot first and gives excuses later. Not much different from that worst of administrations....The Bush Administration!

To you people who want to see a body -- or a picture of a body -- of Osama bin Laden: would you really believe it was OBL, even if you did see a picture?

Robert Orlando: You're right on target! Totally agree.
Dale G.: Very insightful. Totally agree.
I don't want to sound dramatic, but seriously, the CIA has more to do with 9/11 than OBL.
And yes, how convenient to dump him in the sea!
Wow, Americans have become such sheep.....

Glad this FSOB is dead. Don't care who and how he got it. What I don't like hearing is that he was put to sea according to his religious belief. What about all those who have died who did not have that? ( He should have been blown up, burnt up and dumped off the side of the ship...just my anger) I do realize that our government did that as to not cause ill feelings and uprising from those of his religion. I do wish the media would now drop it...it gives him too much publicity.

I didn't know about this until Monday morning when I saw the headlines in the paper, as I had spent the weekend caring for my younger daughter, who has just gotten over a BAD stomach bug. However, it certainly explains my being woken up by my husband's "happy dance" when he came home from work that resulted in him crashing into the bedroom furniture in the dark.

Between my daughter still being sick Monday and my lack of sleep from caring for her/hoping I didn't catch it either, I settled for a quiet thanks to the Goddess and the God for their letting the Threefold Law give Osama one hell of a heinie bite! Now the spirits of those killed on 9/11 can rest in peace. It was a job done well. No casualties on our side, but a much deserved and long-overdue fate for this evil man.

I just hope we can get the rest of his toadies now with a minimum of casualties on our side.

What is going on? Why no skepticism? If this story had come out under Bush, practically everyone would be saying, "yeah right". Seriously folks, i mean, we are told that Osama was living in a Mansion, near a major Pakistan city, he was unarmed, we shot him in the head, then we quickly, (and very conveniently) took his body out to sea and dumped it because we wanted to give him a proper Muslim burial.
Really? If Bush came up with this crock, we'd all be laughing at him.
None of the media, MSM or alternative questions any of this. Have we become that conditioned?
The best case senario is that the CIA has decided to "retire" the "Osama boogeyman".

It was inevitable.We have been hunting him since at least 1993.I doubt it will cause any changes in the world though.

... the truth is we will never know the truth of how these 3 buildings fell. They fell ... that is true!!! But we all know they fell by other means other than a plane. It is not possible for them to fall at free fall speed due to the plane crash. Building 7 fell at free fall speed and no plane even hit it.
