Obama Watches Operation That Killed Osama
Dramatic pictures have been released of President Barack Obama watching live footage of the operation that killed Osama bin Laden.
President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton among people watching US operation to find Osama bin Laden in Pakistan
The al Qaeda leader was shot dead by US special forces who stormed his villa in Pakistan in the early hours of Monday morning local time.
Bin Laden's compound was close to a military garrison and was only around 40 miles from the capital Islamabad.

Great. 9/11 happens, then we have to worry about and thus get our freedoms taken away due to the 'threat' of Osama Bin Laden (the "mastermind") and his gang Al Qaeda....NOW he is dead, do we get those freedoms back? HELL NO. Now we will have to worry about retaliation...a much more palpable threat than that lone bogeyman OBL... Time to lose some freedoms.
Things never change, they only gain momentum and end in a terrible crash.

Did anyone already notice that in Obama's own speech hey juridically tells they shot him AFTER the firefight.
From the original speech quoted:
"Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. A small team of Americans carried out the operation with extraordinary courage and capability. No Americans were harmed. They took care to avoid civilian casualties. After a firefight, they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body.

Also, you have to consider how much control there was to begin with in the heat of the moment...
First off, it makes no sense to hold him (publically)...the body is gone (as far as we are told...however, whats to say he isn't currently in chains being brought to some dark hellhole to forever be tortured for information and for the lulz).
Now, lets say that he was executed...was it by the nod of the president..or rather a few guys seeing this person in front of them, sticking their gun in his eye, doing some mind farking for awhile, then boom...passion kill I guess you could say.
theres alot of speculation that can go on...the dumping of the body then might be because they didn't want to show how it wasn't a distance shot, but rather a execution shot, which could cause all sorts of disruptions across the community.

Ummm ok American version Osama, Arabic version Usama and it's doubtful she would have said his full name in the midst of firefights.

Examining the photo, tell me what yo think. No blood on bed. In saying that , that means they were sleeping and awakend and pulled out of bed and shot. Who here agrees with me? IS this photo real, where did it originate?

I don't think Obama is lying.
I don't buy that Osama was killed yesterday, especially when Benazir Bhutto leaked his murder years ago (before she was assassinated). Also, look at the recent videos with OBL in them . They don't look anything like OBL!
The people who are falling for this claptrap are a bunch of damn fools!
