WASHINGTON – Osama bin Laden, the glowering mastermind behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks that killed thousands of Americans, was killed in an operation led by the United States, President Barack Obama said Sunday
A small team of Americans carried out the attack and took custody of bin Laden's remains, the president said in a dramatic late-night statement at the White House.

Urg, as a Veteran that was in a Command Post when Bush came on and announced - War/shock and awe.
Well this makes me feel sick. Why no subject??? Guess I'll be waiting now.
Did someone die? That is my first thought. 10:30 EST and no subject - this is something big.

Found a link - but not much there..

Obama to make statement late Sunday, White House says


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama will make a public statement at 10:30 p.m. EDT on Sunday, a White House official said. The official did not say what the statement would be about.


That is the extent of the announcement that I could find

This is quite an unusual time for him to be making a statement (10:30PM EST). It has to be something important/critical, otherwise it could have waited until tomorrow. My guess is that Gadafi is killed and the regime has been overthrown...but I can very easily be wrong. Another possibility is that he is going to talk about his birth certificate that has been released.

...gotta play the waiting game for now.

Very interesting that they will not disclose the content of the announcement.

10:30 on a Sunday night? Half hour notice?

This has NEVER been done before by ANY president.

Just switched to CNN, the news anchor saying that it's "extremely usual timing" and "extremely unusual that the media doesn't know the subject in advance".

Let the 15 minutes of speculation begin.

1) He's resigning or firing Joe Biden
2) They killed / captured Osama Bin Laden
3) They killed / captured Gadhaffi
4) They're pulling out of Iraq or Afghanistan
5) Some sort of statement about the debt ceiling
6) Nancy Reagan died


Any others?

I may be morbid, but my money is on (6).

It better not be another Donald trump roast...

but then again that would be a funny development.

/serious note

I will assume this is about the economy and how the US is economically screwed from top to bottom and about the collapse of the dollar.

FOX (Geraldo) is guessing that it has to do with national security.

bin Laden?

Okay, seeing the alert on CNN and tentatively set for 10:30 EST but I'm guessing it will be later than that to assure it's heard. This does seem very unusual. I hate waiting.

They just announced that "it's something to do with National Security".

Geraldo is saying it's going to be a huge annoucement. They are speculating that Gaddifi is dead on FOX.

Just changed the channel to CNN now. Thank you for the heads up on this. If I hadn't been on ATS right now I would have missed it!!
