Hold the Presses -Usama Bin Laden dead

Real Estate Technology with Carmody and Associates LLC

Fox News is announcing that Usama Bin Laden has been killed by US action.  Presidential announcement is expected shortly in a surprise Sunday night presentation from the White House. 

Fox has reported that the event occurred a week ago with the delay for verification of DNA evidence of identification. 

In my view the Bush administration errored in personifying the evil that attacked the US on 9/11 as Bin Laden because we were not able to capture him and it tended to overshadow the other gains in the war on terror.  

But, it appears that the US military has finally accomplished this one goal - the death of Usama Bin Laden to be announced shortly.

yep, just heard the announcement on TV. I think it is merely sybolic at this point. I do not believe that he was really running any global orperations from his hideway. But is still gives sort of closure

President Obama made the televised announcement that Usama Bin Laden had been killed by American covert special forces about a week ago.  They held the announcement pending forensic identification of the body.  Far from the remote cave that was thought to be the terrorist's hiding place, Bin Laden was tracked to a large residential compound in an area west of Islamabad in Pakistan.

I compliment President Obama for his courtesy in making a personal call to President Bush to advise him of the successful attack.  

I agree with Jon that there is great symbolism in the death of Bin Laden - but also I think there is operational significance to this success.  

Thanks to all for stopping by.
