    WASHINGTON — Osama bin Laden is dead and the United States has the body, a person familiar with developments told The Associated Press on Sunday night.

    President Barack Obama planned to announce the news in a late-night statement.

    Bin Laden was killed in a drone strike in Pakistan last week, ABC and NBC reported. He was killed in a mansion in Islamabad, Pakistan, CNN reported. The U.S. has his body after conducting a military operation, NBC reported.

    The reports of bin Laden's death come nine years, seven months and 20 days after the terrorist attacks on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001. [/p]

    Oh yeah, this is on my parent's TV right now. Hasn't he been "killed" multiple times already? Who is to say this is 100% the truth?

    Do you really want to be first so badly that you make a crappy thread with no main post or source?

    Obama wouldnt have a live broadcast from the whitehouse saying bin Laden is dead unless it was 110% true.

    Trust me. He is dead.
    I dont know how big a role he has had of late, seeing how the world has been looking high and low for him, but i definitely feel like the world is a safer place without him.

    Oh, and just to put a damper on things:

    Even if Osama Bin Laden is dead, what does it matter? He was just one of many terrorists. If he was still considered a leader, somebody else will take his place. Yay, one terrorist down, lots to go.

    why bother posting "news" if you're not going to have any information or source and you request the topic be locked until a later date?
    just post the thread later when you actually have a source, and some god damn news to post...

    ps: OMG F1RST WITH THE NEWS, MY PENIS IS BGIGER!1!

    He's been dead for years now...

    He was making videos, we bombed the shit out of areas we thought him to be, no videos for a while then 'new' videos showing him looking younger or obscured, then videos of people speaking for him.

    If you want some proof, all I can conjure up is the New York Times website, which is laggy as fuck because of the supposed traffic.

    Here is a Sydney Morning Herald source, but all it says is that Obama will make an announcement in about 10 minutes.

    EDIT: Oh, and it has a live streaming.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    Wow, this is nuts. The guy had renal failure so I knew he wouldn't last long, but I would never have guessed it would happen so soon.

    *EDIT*
    But we're all still broke. WTF [​IMG]

    That's a hell of a crazy coincidence, I had been meaning to google this guy for the past couple of days, finally did it just this moment when I was reminded.
    First result? Asshole's dead.
