    Nicely done Mr. President, Nicely done. Probably could have killed him a lot sooner if Bush didn't get sidetracked with another war in Iraq.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

He was 8000 miles away.
    Obama directed our attention to be refocused on finding bin Laden, and made it a top priority for the agencies under his direction
    Obama gave the orders to devote more resources to finding bin Laden than our country had committed toward that end in years
    Obama recieved the intel, evaluated the intel, and maked the ultimate decisions on what intel to pursue or not pursue
    Obama made the decisions on when to make a military strike, and ordered the military into action
    Obama gave the orders to kill bin Laden, as opposed to taking him into custody alive

    We're dealing with master Satanists here. The fact that there's no evidence proves that it's true.

    Just curious...
    He was a dialysis patient as well, which would leave telltale scars.

    If there is anything odd, I would suspect a Jessica Lynch lily-guilding situation rather than some real "conspiracy", by the way.

    Apparently they found a huge amount of information in OBL's hideout. Yet another reason why sending in a ground team was a good idea.

    You can't reason somebody out of something they were never reasoned into in the first place.

    I'm happy the ****er is dead, They should have buried his ass in a pig carcuss facing south at the foot of the "freedom tower", I am also contemplative as to the meaning of this death, and what it means in the bigger picture of my loss. Elation, rejoicing, to me is not accurate.
    MSNBC had an interview with two women who feel the way you do this afternoon. Ratigan, I believe, as he lost several people that day as well.

    Sorry for your loss, man.

    I give Obama props for forgoing his previously stated "principles" entirely and allowing our intelligence operations to get this job done. He and Bush should have a beer together.

The idea of focusing on one person really indicates to me people don't understand the scope of the mission. Terror is bigger than one person. He's just a person who's been marginalized.... I don't know where he is. I really just don't spend that much time on him, to be honest with you."

    Look at the video. It is what Bush said, in Bush's own words, by Bush.

    That's not what I asked...can you at least describe the question that was asked? Or put this into context in anyway?
