Just received a Text from a friend stating that Osama is now dead googled it and seems it is true. Another friend told me it has been all over the news for the past hour tho i do not watch the news. Anyone else hear of this via TV or Internets?

Headlines on ABC News website for example:
Osama Bin Laden Killed, Body in U.S. Custody.

CNN also reporting this.

I cannot for the life of me think of a single reason why this subject is relevant to this forum. Will it take us anywhere we want to go? Perhaps there are better places to air this discussion?

A little O/T but not relevant, I think. It looks like SEAL Team Six took him out. Good riddance so far as I'm concerned. Again, this could have survival implications but they're probably beyond the purview of this site.

Because:

Certainty of reprisal against American citizens is 100%.
Which is an issue affecting this forum.

Pity they didn't take him alive. So that he could answer for his misdeeds.

Let's hope that he is having an "interesting" discussion with Allah.

The back story on how this guy eluded American justice for so many years is a story of survival preparation and practice that will put meat into discussions for years. What lessons are to be learned?

One thing he has in common with us: note the compass worn on his watch strap in the pics of him on the new york times site.
Apparently casio worn by an arab screams 'Al Quaeda' at airports.
You don't stay the most wanted man on earth and free for a decade without being prepared.
Note also how they conceal he lost his right arm in the cave bombings.
Draw your own conclusions about why the videos of him making threats (using an actor with both arms) were faked.
