All I can say is Hooah! To our Navy SEALs and Intelligence Personnel that brought him down, to everyone involved in the operation, kudo's!
Now starts the craziness of the entire situation. He has hardly been at the bottom of the sea and the conspiracy theories start. What if they are lying? What if they didn't get him because they refuse to show the pictures?
Trust me, the guy is DEAD. the Navy SEAL's confirmed it. the Sailors on the ship confirmed it, the people left alive in the Bin laden compound confirmed it, and from what I understand, All Qaeda has now confirmed it. DEAD.
I know for the victims of 9/11, who lost loved ones and friends in that horrible attack on that day, it has to be a bittersweet victory. Yes, the man is dead that was the mastermind behind the death of their loved one, so justice has been served on this side of eternity, and I would suspect, on the other side as well, but it won't ever bring back who they lost that fateful day. Let us as a nation never forget them and those who left us on that day in 2001.
Osama Bin Laden was responsible for more than just the 9/11 attacks. He was also the planner behind the attack on the USS Cole, and other military and civilian attacks through the years around the world. With his death I say good riddance to bad rubbish.
What we do understand is we do not celebrate death, we celebrate a victory over an evil in the world that has caused other's deaths and pain to untold thousands of people. In that, a small piece of the evil in our world was removed when he took the bullet to the head.
Hey, Bin Laden...Good luck on the other side. you're gonna need it.
But, here is a question I think we need to be asking. Was a "Kill Order" issued for Osama Bin Laden? I know most people would not care if it was, but this is what is important about this issue. If it was a kill order that was issued, then the President of the United States broke the law. A sitting US president cannot issue an order of an assassination, according to the US Constitution. And if it was a kill order, why?
Much has been speculated as to what tied Bin laden may have had in the US. We know he was trained by the CIA, and was an operative against the Russians during the 1990's. An ally turned rogue? Maybe. It has also been speculated that a man sitting in a cave somewhere in the mountains could not have coordinated the attacks on 9/11, and that even if he did, there had to have been inside help from someone or some agency within the United States Government.
Until there is solid proof, it will remain speculation. But, you have to wonder...What if...
