    Why did they shoot him twice
    surely alive would have been more useful vis a vis the war against terror
    the info he had

    Retaliation is not a threat, surely its a presumption.

    I personally think he is dead, but there are enough incongruous claims in the President's boastful speech as to mean that the only way there will be a resolution is to

    a) Show the helmet-cam footage.
    b) Dredge up the body.

    Because every person who has been affected by the war on terrorism expects a proper denouement here, not just a DNA swab and the body quickly dropped under 100 fathoms - merely to keep Muslims happy.

    If the USA is interested in keeping Muslims happy there are many other ways ofd doing so.

    Texas Lawmakers Give Navy SEAL Team 6 Standing Ovation



    But Obama bravely played only nine holes of golf on Sunday and told a bunch of jokes at the White House Corespondent Dinner, where’s his standing ovation?

    Honoring Sunday’s U.S. military operation that killed terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden with tears, words and applause, the Texas Senate this morning gave a lengthy standing ovation to those who carried out the successful strike in Pakistan.Applauding with the rest his colleagues was state Sen. Brian Birdwell, R-Granbury, who was critically injured when one of the terrorists’ planed crashed into the Pentagon in Washington.
    More than 3,000 people died in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, including strikes on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center towers in New York.
    Following a brief, emotional speech to a silent and somber Senate Chamber, Birdwell led the Senate in the Pledge of Allegiance. Several senators and spectators dabbed tears from their eyes.

    Whilst nobody can rule out the possibility of 'retribution' killings & atrocities, personally I doubt we will see any beyond perhaps one or two small incidents. AQ had already largely been smashed actually, as a coherent organisation. It had also largely lost the battle of 'hearts and minds' in the Islamic world- witness how few demonstrations etc there have been since bin Liners slaying. So while the snaring of OBL was important, and a major morale booster, this was not for 'operational' reasons as such.

    I am reminded of that woman watching the 2 inch tsunami stroll up a peaceful river behind her, who couldn't talk because she was "too emotional", dabbing the tears of anguish away.

    “They cleaned it out,” one official said. “Can you imagine what’s on Osama bin Laden’s hard drive?”
    - Kiddie porn
    - Animal porn
    - Justin Bieber photos (see above)
    - Angry Birds for windows

    to name but a few.

    It's a miracle, not the DEVGRU

    "LIMA, Peru - Peruvian President Alan Garcia said Pope John Paul II should get credit for the death of Osama bin Laden.
    The late pope was beatified on Sunday and Garcia said: "His first miracle was to remove from the world the incarnation of evil, the demonic incarnation of crime and hatred, giving us the news that the person who blew up towers and buildings is no longer."

    The 12-year-old daughter of Bin Laden is now in Pakistani custody, says the BBC's Owen Bennett-Jones: "There were quite a few women and children in the compound who had their arms tied [during the raid] and they believe they would have been taken away by the US military had the second helicopter not gone down. The daughter who survived said she saw her father shot by the Americans."

    They need another "miracle" to make him a full saint apparently. If they can make a connection, he's gonna get promoted for sure...

    Poor bastard, if they keep digging him up, he's going to wish he'd upset the merkins too. At least OBL is unlikely to be exhumed in a hurry.

    Unlikely he would have coughed up, and torture would not be possible due to all the bleeding hearts out there. Shooting twice is standard as I believe head wounds are not always fatal, far better to just get rid of and dump him in the sea, hopefully shark infested.

    Float maybe, but I doubt if he will walk. I hope they had the good sense to put some weights on him...can you imagine if he washed up on a beach somewhere....

    One point that hasn't been mentioned yet is that Obama's speech cut into Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice show.

    The CIA could really use some much needed interrogation techniques training especially after all the attention Gitmo has been given.

    I dont think they will get many complaints...

    Ok,they are searching for the worlds number one enemy for 10 years.

    Then when they claim to have found and killed him they dumb his body in the sea instead of showing their trophy to the world.
    Give me a break

    Even a 5 year old sees through this bullshit story
