Looks like we’ll know soon. Shot in the head by U.S. forces?

My news channel is saying he was killed by US Personnel and that they have his body. The president is about to confirm it.

A few minutes until the press conference. National holiday tomorrow?

Seaofclouds's avatar

I am hearing the same thing as @WillWorkForChocolate at this point. Just waiting for the President to come on with his statement…

Porifera's avatar

Hard to believe…hope they confirm it…

Same here. Waiting on President Obama. I saw a report that said he was killed a week ago by a bomb. Officials have withheld info while waiting on DNA tests.

Seaofclouds's avatar

@bkcunningham I heard that we have DNA confirmation as well, but I’m waiting to see if that is officially announced since I only heard it through a rumor online and not something official.

Shot in the head in a mansion near Islamabad is what CBS and CNN are saying.

True. Obama’s going to make a statement shortly.

bkcunningham's avatar

I have to say, I’m surprised he’s lasted this long. Healthwise and otherwise.

Ok, here’s what I want to know: If this isn’t breaking news, wth is? BBC headlines (Android app), CNN widget (Google Toolbar) – I’ve had it with you!

Blueroses's avatar

I hear you @MyNewtBoobs Headline News is still showing the Royal Wedding. Idiots.

Porifera's avatar

People are gathering in front of the White House.

@Blueroses Biggest news since we got Saddam, you’d think they’d be on TOP OF THAT SHIT. Journalism really is dead. Hell, I couldn’t even find the words “Bin Laden” on 9news.com (Denver), just the words “breaking news – Obama’s speech”.

Blueroses's avatar

Laughing at the CNN source that says Afghanistan officials are sending out “We told you so!” emails.

Seaofclouds's avatar

CBS had a thing come up at 10:30pm saying the President had a special statement to make and that their sources said it was related to bin Laden. They’ve been talking about it as a special report since about 10:50pm instead of their regular programming.

Fireworks going off in my neighborhood now.

I’ll put out the flag tomorrow.

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

@Blueroses The one near me, or the one far away from me?

Blueroses's avatar

@MyNewtBoobs I’m in the further neighborhood now. Up here, we like any excuse to light the things that go “boom” and this is a good one!

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

@Blueroses Well, sure, who doesn’t.

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Any answer involving classic song lyrics gets a GA.

is true yes

SABOTEUR's avatar

Of course not. Obama is just trying to divert attention from Birth-Certifigate.

Why else would he time his announcement to interrupt the last 15 minutes of Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice?

Cruiser's avatar

@SABOTEUR Now Trump will be demanding Bin Laden’s death certificate!

SABOTEUR's avatar

@Cruiser You know, you’re right!

Poor guy can’t catch a break, can he…?

ragingloli's avatar

I already have read from conspiracy theorists that this is all a hoax by the Obama Administration to distract from his fake birth certificate…

Buttonstc's avatar

Well Obama had a great weekend. Trump got good and stomped on by jokes at the Foreign Press Assoc. Dinner and then the last ½ hour of his show (Apprentice) got pushed off the air.

Trump must really be fuming :)

“Don’t Mess With the Zohan! ”
(or the Obama)

:D
