There's still the danger of Al-Queda retaliating,so they need to be hit even harder now. The US has a chance to breakk Al-Queda much faster and end this war. This is GREAT! Al-Queda can't hold out much longer, and the world at large is getting to see what the consequences of mass murder in the name of any god or religion are: death.

Have a few more pictures... If I told you there were over 100 police vehicles coming from LA all the way down to the bay. I wouldn't be exaggerating. lol how many times do you think some dumbas got in between them (with there lights on)? It was comical at times.. Why would you want to move IN FRONT of a police cruiser with it's lights on?

Soon as I find out what the convoy was all about I'll be sure to pass the info.. Ran into them on the back side of the grapevine. The convoy were with the convoy for about an hour or two, it was so long I still don't know how long (from beginning to end) it was miles long. As we passed through different cities, counties etc. etc. There would be local authorities on the over pass waiting and snapping photos of the convoy.. First time I rode along side a group of officers and didn't roll my window down (TINTED) or worry about my plates (no front plates). I knew whatever was going on took priority over a crummy fix it ticket. here's a few more

(my son took a few)

This is like killing their pope/inman/caliph/bishop/priest/monk/dalhi lama/kia/vedick or whatever. Needless to say the chief of their damn cult is dead, so hopefully nobody will ever be able to fill his shoes to the same extent.

Honestly I feel like we have Al-Quida on the ropes right now, we've systematically killed all of their leaders and waged a bloody 10 year war against them. The only problem I really see is that you cannot defeat an ideology, at least by force. Al-Quida might be on life support, but radical Islam is still alive and well.

Hopefully the death of Bin Laden, and our wars in Afghanistan and Iraq get across the point to major governments that you cannot support terrorists. Until today, I've felt like Pakistan was not a friend, and that they were unable or unwilling to crack down on terrorists/extreme Islam. Hopefully Pakistan can carry through with this huge victory and finish cleaning their own house of all its *******s who I've felt have infiltrated their government.

Now he's a martyr vs a leader, but can still serve to inspire. We still have Al Qaeda the movement, and the last several attempts and credit for one attack have come from Yemen and Anwar al-Awlaki not from Bin Laden.

The Navy got him - SEALS - helicopter raid on a compound. Killed him with a bullet to the head. Buried him at sea - kept DNA evidence - he's not a "martyr" - not buried (or pieces of him) in "holy ground". Also appears to have gotten one of his sons.

We leave Norfolk at 10 for a 220 mile drive up the Eastern Shore. It will be interesting to see the security at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel; 16 miles of 4-lane bridge and two mile long 2-lane tunnels under the Thimble Shoal and Chesapeake channels.

Last night when I watched Obama's speech, he said "we have the body". Now I'm reading that Bin Laden was "buried at sea" but we "kept DNA evidence". Seriously? Why?. Something smells funny. Why bother recovering the body? They could have just pulled a hair out of his head for dna. Let's see how this unfolds. :eek:

After Bin Laden was killed in a raid by U.S. forces in Pakistan, senior administration officials said the body would be handled according to Islamic practice and tradition. That practice calls for the body to be buried within 24 hours, the official said. Finding a country willing to accept the remains of the world's most wanted terrorist would have been difficult, the official said. So the U.S. decided to bury him at sea.

it seems like they didn't want to give Islamic extremists any extra reason to be upset

but don't want it on land cause we don't want anyone making a shrine for him or anything

The people that believe this are the ones that still believe he's not American. :helpless: As for catching Bin Laden, are you saying that Bush or another republican in office would have gone to Pakistan (Rambo style) personally and shot Bin Laden in the face or are you simply saying that a republican president would have gone to Pakistan himself and found him? Maybe a republican would have just given the ok to the military as well huh?:sneaky:

Not to get too political here but:

1. No doubt the majority of the credit goes to the SEALs who were on the ground, but Obama is still the Commander-in-Cheif of the military, he deserves some credit for giving the green light. Nobody could have done anything without him giving the OK.
2. Had the operation failed I'm fairly certain everyone would have blamed him instead of the SEALs. Remember how it was Clinton's fault for letting Bin Laden get away in the 90s?
3. He's pretty much already secured his reelection, politics is a game run by money and he's going to have a $1 billion campaign budget for 2012. They say your first term you run for reelection, your second term you run for your place in history.

The New Yorker (http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/newsdesk/2011/05/bin-laden-and-torture.html)
You would think that if the C.I.A.’s interrogation of high-value detainees was all it took, the U.S. government would have succeeded in locating bin Laden before 2006, which is when the C.I.A.’s custody of so-called “high-value detainees” ended. Instead, after the Supreme Court ruled that year that prisoners needed to be treated humanely in compliance with the Geneva Conventions, the C.I.A. was forced to turn its special detainees over to the military for detention and interrogation using more lawful tactics in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. It took five more years before all the dots could be adequately connected.

Jonathan Schell (http://www.commondreams.org/views05/0120-25.htm)
Torture destroys the soul of the torturer even as it destroys the body of his victim. The boundary between humane treatment of prisoners and torture is perhaps the clearest boundary in existence between civilization and barbarism.

The Economist (http://www.economist.com/blogs/democracyinamerica/2011/05/torture_and_osama_bin_laden)
You may ask, "How do you know when a moral rule, such as 'don't torture', renders the wrong advice if the best moral theory always tells you that it is the right advice?" The answer is that you don't know. Sometimes exercising judgment amounts to little more than guessing and sometimes you'll guess wrong. Torture is categorically wrong, but it's not inconceivable that there are circumstances in which you should do it. However, there can be no general account of when you should do it, because generally you categorically shouldn't.

We are left with the uncomfortable but inevitable ambiguity of life. Some people will maintain that this time the situation is a ticking time bomb, and it would be wrong to do the generally right thing and refuse to torture. The way to rebut such claims is to explain that, no, there is nothing about this situation that should lead us to overthrow the rule. If torture advocates refuse to believe us, and agents of the state go on to torture people, then all we can do is to continue to say what we believe to be true: that torture is a great evil; that those who argue for it are facilitating evil and deserve to be scorned; that those who do it are guilty of evil and deserve to be punished, even if the evil of which they are guilty led SEAL Team 6 to Osama bin Laden's door.

Old news and really not of any importance. Where he was raised and by whom is of little or no significance. He gave the ok to kill Bin Laden, if he were on the same side as Bin Laden would he have done that? The Bush's though, they were bedding with the Bin Laden's for a long, long time. Bush even came out and said he didn't care if they caught him or not. If Bush REALLY wanted him, it would have happened. :annoyed:
