    Jinx-it is being reported that it was SEAL team 6, which, as we all know, may or may not be true. I have no doubt it was a "black ops" team, which many deny even exist. (including the people in them.....) Whoever it was-THANK YOU, and I am truly glad it was up close and personal He knew it was us. Paybacks are hell.

    Don't let our guard down tho-he was but one of many.

    Don't you think that killing him could of made this so much worse?
    He was in hiding so he wasn't doing anything, now someone else who want be in hiding will take over and take action

    Good feeling gone.
    I just found out myself that he was burried at sea. IMO, massive fail government. I wanted to believe he was dead just as much as the next guy, but give me a break. They couldn't have possibly thought this was going to go over well with the American people. Why do we care about THIS mans traditions? This all being so close to the whole birth certificate thing makes them both seem fake, like Obama is trying to do too much all at once, and conveniently the only REAL evidence is gone already. This makes me sad and I sincerely hope it is not true.

    Exactly! Bin Laden will become a martyr now which basically gives him more power than what he had when he was alive. In effect, he has become a God to thousands of extremists who will have to carry on his legacy. This will sure as hell stir up the hornets nest... it'll be interesting to see what happens in the months to come.

    Edit:

    I'm happy that he's dead. It was inevitable after a while. Just saying, he's now become a martyr. There was no way around this. :)

    Whisper-do you not understand that if he had been "buried" in a more traditional way that would have become a mecca for his followers?

    I would give the government some creds-and a chance. I would guess that there may be follow up releases from them, perhaps with photos.

    Redtree-are you kidding me? "he was in hiding and wasn't doing anything" REALLY?? If nothing else he is an iconic figurehead.

    Good on the US for this.

    RedTree don't you think while he was in "Hiding" that maybe he had been planing another attack on the US? Just hopeful if he was that he kept it to himself so it died with him.

    Also I don't think anyone will try anything for a while knowing that our guys will hunt them down... Hiding or no hiding. (tho I can't say if our guys hunted him down or just ran across him)

    I'm worried this will stir things up, but at least the message has been sent that you will be found no matter how long it takes. The issue is whether that will be enough of a deterrant :/

    They better come up with something, their credibility is going to die fast if they don't.

    I don't think it matters how we burry him at all. The fact that we killed him in the first place is going to piss his followers off. If we're screwed, our fait was sealed when we shot him.

    His followers (and him) were already pissed off. They hate America, and they wanted to take it down. Without their main leader, they are at a huge disadvantage.

    America is aware of the risk and they are raising National Security, If I heard right.
