Osama Reported Killed by U.S. Strike

Breaking, Drudge is reporting that Osama Bin Laden is dead. Killed by U.S.A. strike.
Osama bin Laden, hunted as the mastermind behind the worst-ever terrorist attack on U.S. soil, has been killed, President Obama announced tonight.

Bin Laden was killed in a ground attack by Joint Special Operations Command forces working with the CIA on a compound in Pakistan, a national security source told ABC News.

The compound, described by some sources as a mansion, had been monitored for months. When the decision was made to move on it, special operations forces were sent across the border from Afghanistan to launch a ground attack and take the body.

DNA testing confirmed that it was bin Laden, sources told ABC News.

Vice President Biden briefed Republican congressional leaders this evening on the operation, which had been kept secret until shortly before the president's announcement tonight.

"This is a terrific day for America and quite frankly the whole world that cares about winning the war on terror," former Bush chief of staff Andy Card told ABC News. Card said the news is "particularly significant" for the intelligence community.

"They're the ones who kept their nose to the grindstone and worked very hard to allow this day to be realized ... finally," he said.

His death brings to an end a tumultuous life that saw bin Laden go from being the carefree son of a Saudi billionaire, to terrorist leader and the most wanted man in the world.

Bin Laden created and funded the al Qaeda terror network, which was responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States. The Saudi exile had been a man on the run since the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan overthrew the ruling Taliban regime, which harbored bin Laden. {Read More}

When verified it will be the best news in a decade!

  1. Unfortunately, America's worst enemy is still in the White House...

  2. One less Muslim extremist we have to worry about. The head has been sliced off the let's finish the job, shall we?

  3. Monday morning, 9:57 AM EST:

    The more I listen and read about this announcement and see the details of the mission and etc, the more I am beginning to have some serious questions about it all.

    The "facts" presented to us as the American public aren't connecting. And the timing of this

    Curious, that.

    Not ready to render a decision one way or the other. I am merely taking notes.

  4. Bastiat? Really???

    It seems OBL is really dead. We now have to brace ourselves for the retaliation. I hope our intelligence community is up to the task.


  5. >Bastiat? Really???

    Really. The Fop in Chief and his ilk have done more to destroy the United States than all the terrorists put together. At least the terrorists are honest about it.

  6. @Bastitarian,

    Hear, hear! Nicely said, sir.

  7. I have some problems with Obama. But to say that he's worse than the terrorists is as ridiculous as Olbermann saying that Fox News is worse than the terrorists. It's hyperbole, pure and simple.

  8. >It's hyperbole, pure and simple.

    The percentage of Americans that have been harmed by terrorists is statistically meaningless. On the other hand, almost every American has been harmed by the Fop in Chief and his ilk. The worst enemies of societies and civilizations are always on the inside. Our country isn't being destroyed by terrorists. It's being destroyed from the inside by people like the Fop (and Jersey and their ilk) that work steadily and insidiously to undermine the rights of each American to his or her life, liberty, and property. That also results in greater vulnerability to terrorists. A quick perusal of history should make it very clear that we're following the path of many other civilizations that fell because of rot from within. Without that rot, terrorists are not a significant threat.

    The poster boy for that rot it Barack H. Obama.

  9. Bastiat, you idiot...

    Obama has helped me and millions of other Americans in many ways. For family, I have large student loan debts. Obama helped me structure those debts in a way ideal for my family, the banks, and the taxpayer. In the end, everyone gets their money. It's a good deal all around.

    Obama also helped me budget my credit cards in a way ideal for my banks and myself. If he hadn't stepped in, they may have lost my business, and I their rewards. Now, I have a good deal, it's all clear and understood, I pay my bills diligently and they take pretty good care of me.

    Obama negotiated a healthcare law that will help me in the near future should I need it.

    Obama has done a lot for me, and without the government having to hand out a thing - in other words, NONE OF THIS COSTS YOU A DIME.

    I call that the good stewardship of government.

    Oh, and "me" is MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of Americans.

  12. Forget it. I'm not wasting my time on you anymore. Jersey, you're the enemy. It's harder for me to support my family because of leeches like you, using the government to steal from me. If you were in a back alley trying what you do through the thugs of the federal government, you'd get a bullet in the face. But you're fine with Big Mother doing your dirty work for you. It's safe and easy when you can get somebody else to steal for you. Coward.

  13. JMJ,

    You needed Obama to teach you how to budget your money? How weak is that?!

    Therein lies the crux of liberal teat-sucking. "I can't handle my own affairs so I need the government to do it for me."

    Thanks for being weak and helpless, JMJ. You do your ideology proud.

    You have said too much and revealed too much about your weaknesses and inabilities to be not only a man but an American.

    Rubbish. Pure rubbish.

    I am banishing you. You no longer exist or matter. You are indeed the enemy.

  14. A small problem...

    This post was about the death of bin Laden, a very good thing. It was not about President Obama pe se, other than he had the balls to authorize the strike in which our Navy Seals performed admirably.

    So give credit where credit is due.

    I share all the limited government fiscal responsibility sentiments many of you hold, h*ll I've been blogging about it for almost years.

    But to liken Obama to the terrorist responsible for the loss of over 3,000 American souls, and likely countless others, the result of his terrorist network is wrong, simply wrong. Even if one understands the distinction that is implied.

    So, we should all congratulate our brave Navy Seals for a mission superbly accomplished, and the President for having the strength to actually authorize it.

    The time and place to take Obama to task is on a different post. One that will no doubt be forthcoming. It really isn't this one.

    Thank you
