And this releases the Pakistanis of all collusion? Not so quick!
Saudi intelligence methinks.

Re: US gov. claiming Osama bin Laden killed.

More importantly, will Bin Laden be joining Saddam in South Park hell from now on? How will that work out???

Why do I have the feeling the Republicans and Tea Party will try to spin this as a mistake on Obama's part?

No, I don't think so in this case. Alive there would still have been a cause - to fight for Our Man Being Held By The Infidels. I would be a ten pound note they were under orders to kill him from the outset to ensure that subsequent statements about versions of events, justice, what now and all that are unopposed.

Re: US gov. claiming Osama bin Laden killed.

Though, I am not an America but i felt so much happiness when i saw the news about Bin Laden this morning. I am happy for US and the world....atleast the main head of terrorism has been killed. Now we have to to deal with his hands and legs that are spreading everywhere like virus.

Why do the Americans have his body? What do they intend to do with it?
