Obama announces Osama bin Laden killed by U.S. - latimes.com

Osama bin Laden, the world's most wanted terrorist, was killed in Pakistan as the result of a U.S. military operation, President Obama announced to the nation Sunday night.

The historic revelation comes about four months before the 10th anniversary of the devastating Sept. 11 attacks on the United States, which were executed by the Al Qaeda network helmed by Bin Laden and prompted the start of a war on terror that has dominated U.S. foreign policy.

Bin Laden, 54, was a member of a wealthy Saudi family and has been on the FBI's Most Wanted Fugitives List since 1999.

Bin Laden broke with Saudi leaders over their beliefs regarding Israel. He was eventually denounced by his family and gave up citizenship.

Al Qaeda has taken responsibility for the bombings of U.S. embassies in 1998 in Tanzania and Kenya. More than 200 people were killed in the attacks.

Al Qaeda has also claimed responsibility for other attacks on other symbols of U.S. power around the globe. It has spawned local organizations in hot spots from Iraq to Afghanistan.

The announcement by Obama from the East Room of the White House came eight years to the day after President Bush announced the end of major combat operations in Iraq, the so-called “Mission Accomplished” speech from the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln.

Members of Congress were briefed on the news by Vice President Joe Biden throughout the weekend, according to a Senate aide.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, related the news to mourners at a memorial service for political consultant Kam Kuwata. Feinstein said Obama was announcing it on TV as she spoke. However, she announced the news well before Obama began to speak.

Government operatives will get the bounty? I think that applies for non government operatives. Must be for civilians/bounty hunters/mercinaries.

Uhu, Not Gonna Happen!
I do not think Obama would have announced it without having confirmed using all means :)

BTW, it is being aired on some news channel that he was hiding in an ISI safe house. How could they be so hypocrites?


When the end came for Bin Laden, he was found not in the remote tribal areas along the Pakistani-Afghan border where he has long been presumed to be sheltered, but in a massive compound about an hour’s drive north from the Pakistani capital of Islamabad. He was hiding in the medium-sized city of Abbottabad, home to a large Pakistani military base and a military academy of the Pakistani Army

Bin Laden Is Dead, Obama Says - NYTimes.com


"The U.S. military confirms that amongst the rubble was a tattered playstation move controller with accompanying gun attachment. Local sources state Osama gathered with warlords Sunday to unravel his copy of Socom 4. Little is known at the time of his reaction."


Human Spambot
How about this conspiracy.....

"CIA's trusted sources found out that Laden is playing playstation 3. They can just go and ask dudes at sony.. but that will leak their lead.So, CIA hacks the PSN. Filters the data... finds out Laden's hide out. Gives it a week time. Passes the info to the covert ops team in their pakistani base. Dudes terminate him"

This will make a hell of a mission in next Call of duty/medal of honor/battlefield game.
