Oh thanks. Even though it doesn't mean the war's over... it's still something to be happy about.

looks like Obama's on now.

Having your hand in the death of thousands and disappearing for ten years would make you a perverse, brillant criminal mastermind. Terrorism will never go away, look at what happened to the Playstation Network last week.

Usama is the sort of Americanized version of Usāmah, his real name.

Confrims though, there's no excusing that.

Well I'm not entirely sure how either of you feel nothing? Either you aren't Americans (certainly not New Yorkers) or you weren't conscious for 9/11. If you were 5, I'm sure this doesn't matter that much, but I was in college then, I remember the day everything shut down, the hours and days after where everyone kept asking "when's the next hit coming?" For the weeks of Anthrax attacks and the countless attempts to pull off more attacks.

For all the people this guy killed, senselessly and without any reason other than they were American. Because the U.S. had a base in Saudi Arabia, because he thought God told him to do it. If you don't feel anything, I think you need to search yourself for what matters to you. You both mentioned that "well the war won't end tomorrow." Yeah, that's true. But frankly, this is a reminder of why the war started in the first place.

History blurs, but don't forget we didn't ask for this war. He invited it on us, and frankly today stands as a testament to justice. I just can't understand how anyone looks at this and goes "so what?" The guy is responsible for horrible **** for nothing close to a good reason. Its just mind-boggling.

Fair enough. I don't suppose we know how they found him yet, but I'd like to know if they actually sussed him out, or just happened on him by merry accident.

Oh I didn't even look at that. But I imagine it was done in haste. I think every news network makes typos. This one made me laugh:

As a New Yorker this is freaking huge for me. The conflict won't stop anytime soon but it still means something to me.
