    Awesome! It took 10 years but this is a win for the good guys. Now, let's see how long before it becomes politicized.

    i'm gonna need to see the long-form death certificate before I believe it.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    If this is true then happy days. If it is indeed confirmed to be him they should verify it and then turn the body over to his family. They should do everything possible to demonstrate this a success on every level.

    Am I the only one who's unreasonably excited about this? Although, I would prefer it if he were alive.

    I totally almost posted the same thing. Maybe we can find a bridge to hang his miserable carcass on for awhile.

    Ben Laden was killed a week ago by a US missile.

    Can't wait to hear how Obama reacts on TV, He must have known because Osama's body has been in US custody under going DNA testing to make sure it was indeed him.

    This sounds like it's good news but keep in mind that Obama is involved in this, the death certificate may be a fake. I can't wait for the "Deather" threads to start up.
