Osama Bin Laden is DEAD. DEAD. DEAD.
Obama authorized special forces to GO ON THE GROUND in PAKISTAN outside of ISLAMABAD. At a mansion they exchanged small arms fire and BLEW HIS DAMN HEAD OFF.
TAKE THAT YOU S.O.B!!!
(note, my birthday is 9/11, so yeah, permit me some vigor here).
Sidenote: Obama’s speech was ok. Nothing superawesome, though I did like how Obama ended his speech with the closing line from the Pledge of Allegiance.
That said, Obama took a big risk here — he earned his pay 500 percent — because he took the EXTREME political risk of sending in a ground SOF team into Pakistan…especially right near Islamabad of all places after the Raymond Davis incident.
This could have ended up as Desert One II — it was that risky politically. But he still signed off on the Kill Order. So mad props to him for that.
While I was watching CNN (ugh, Geraldo on FNC at this time of night); I noticed that a spontaneous demonstration was occuring outside the WH while we waited for the speech with people waving our flag, shouting USA USA and singing the national anthem.
I’ve also heard that at the Mets-Phillies game crowd chanted USA! USA! as news spread amongst them.
Brings a tear to me eye.
Even though some people think I’m to the right of Genghis Khan….mad props to Barry tonight:
PS: Maybe we warned the royals? Notice how the Newlyweds were going to honeymoon in Jordan, and how they delayed that?
PPS: I’m surprised this didn’t leak. It shows we can keep secrecy when we feel like it.
