If nothing else it will be a big hit on the Pakistani foreign relations. They cooperated poorly, and are on the big board as being a terrorist harboring nation and they supposedly have The Bomb!
They cooperated poorly throughout the whole episode by proof that they were the only country in the world of 195 countries that recognized the Taliban as a governing entity.
Think about that!

Statement from President George W. Bush
"Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that American forces killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of the al Qaeda network that attacked America on September 11, 2001. I congratulated him and the men and women of our military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to this mission. They have our everlasting gratitude. This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done."

Conservative commentator, former Marine Colonel Bob Pappas has been saying for years that bin Laden died at Tora Bora and that Senator Kerry’s claim that bin Laden escaped with Bush help was a lie. Now we know that Pappas was correct.

Quite a lot didn't add up in this speech for me.
First, & I'm no expert, I though his body language was slightly off in parts, & he stumbled abit. It wasn't convincing in the least!
Second... There was a battle, yet "no Americans were harmed". He was THE most wanted man in the world, I find it hard to believe he would go down without taking some of the enemy with him. That, or they hired foreign mercenaries..
Third (& it's a given) as I was watching, I imagined what it'd be like for someone who didn't know what we know. If I hear the presenters saying "this is so important" "the political & geo-political ramifications are enormous" I'd be very inclined to believe them.
Like it has been said, the "celebrations" outside the WH are such a fail. Obvious propaganda is obvious..
Well, it just goes to show how easy it is tho pull the wool over us.edit on 1-5-2011 by WilhelmFink because: (no reason given)edit on 1-5-2011 by WilhelmFink because: more to say
Obama says “Actionable military intelligence” was used.
Bin Laden was killed in a mansion outside Islamabad Pakistan and other family members were also killed..

Doesn't matter, Bin Laden's having the last laugh...
He's up there banging his 72 virgins.
Little did he know the virgins names were Hank, Jim, Kyle, and the like and they have been waiting a looooooong time for their peice of Osama-ass.

should obama announce within the immediate future that our revenge has been satisfied and brings ALL troops home.... I will be willing to forgive him and all the crap hes done. hell might even vote for him if that happens.
That is Not going to happen.
Do you really honestly believe that Obama has that power? I'm not saying Officially. The presidency is not ONE person.
