We're soon getting special live broadcast from the President. Bin Laden's been killed by US forces in an "incident" which is to be described shortly. Result of a US action. And the US has his body.

So, I'm watching Brother's and Sister's and then a Special Report comes on.  I was shocked by this.  I will be very interested to hear whether this president was pushing hard to get this done and that is why it happened, or just by chance.  Bin Ladin can no longer be the boogy-man out there.

CNN is saying it was a human asset (I'll assume CIA or similar) and not a drone attack, in a mansion in or near Islamabad, Pakistan.

Say what? A week ago?


Anchor Brian Williams just asserted that this is one of those moments that people will remember where they were when they heard of his death.

Yup, I can imagine (not) saying at a ladies luncheon, " Well, Barbara, I was on the AIDSmeds forum when I heard the news interrupt Donald Trump's " Celebrity Apprentice! Imagine I was waiting to learn if Nene Leakes or Starr Jones was the team member heading for a firing! Oh girl, how ironic, you know, listening to Trump's program when the President interrupted."  

Apparently, a bundle of calls must be made to a slew of committees before it can be announced live.

They have his body in custody and it took this long to announce because they had to do the DNA testing.  Pres Obama did not want to announce anything until there was no doubt that Osama was indeed killed.

I saw this (from the AP) before I listened to Barry speak, after initially hearing the news on NPR

WASHINGTON Ė Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the Sept. 11 attacks against the United States, is dead, and the U.S. is in possession of his body, a person familiar with the situation said late Sunday.

President Barack Obama was expected to address the nation on the developments Sunday night.

A senior U.S. counterterrorism official said bin Laden was killed in a ground operation in Pakistan, not by a Predator drone. The official said it happened last week.

Officials have long believed bin Laden, the most wanted man in the world, was hiding a mountainous region along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to speak ahead of the president.

Right click on the picture if it's on the internet and go to properties.  Copy the URL address and insert it between the image link.   That's one way however, it is slightly frowned upon (I still do it sometimes).  The other way is to save it to something like photobucket and paste the direct image link given for your picture.

This is interesting:

Pakistani press report from several hours ago, and in the town where Obama was captured

ABBOTTABAD: Three loud blasts were heard near the Pakistan Military Academy (PMA) Kakul Road late Sunday night and a military helicopter also crashed. Sources told Geo News that heavy firing was heard in the area before the chopper crashed.

Windowpanes of the nearby buildings and houses were smashed due to the intensity of the blasts, the sources said. Eyewitnesses said first sound of heavy firing was heard and then there was a huge blast. Fire erupted at the scene of the occurrence and according to latest reports police and fire brigade teams were rushing towards the blast scene. Security forces cordoned off the entire area and military helicopters were also hovering over the area.

Well, here's the important bit that some of you missed:  the one who got fired after all the Nene Leakes vs. Star jones drama was the cute but useless Hope Dworaczyk.  She will not be missed.  I'm just glad that Latoya is back  ;D

Guess Donald Trump is already claiming credit for the kill. Says his forces looking for Obama's birth cert came across Bin Laden hiding. Contacted Donald, and Donald flew in and did the hit job. Details on Fox news later today.
