President Obama Announces Osama bin Laden Has Been Killed (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted May 2nd 2011 12:58AM
President Barack Obama announces Osama bin Laden is deadEast coast fans of 'Celebrity Apprentice' were probably quite surprised when NBC pre-empted the ending of the episode, before the elimination, with an unplanned 'NBC News Special Report' (Sun. 10:50PM ET on NBC) for a speech by President Obama.

Earlier in the night, word had come out that Obama was going to speak to the American people at 10:30 PM ET, but it was later than that by almost an hour. All the major broadcast networks carried the speech, pre-empting regularly scheduled programming on the East Coast and delaying start times on the West Coast.

By the time the president's speech began, CNN and all the other major news outlets were reporting that the president would be revealing that Osama bin Laden had been killed by American forces and that his body was in US custody.

"Tonight I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda," Obama opened.

In just about ten minutes, the president detailed the gathering of intelligence that began with a lead in August 2010. From there, they followed the trail to a compound in Pakistan.

"Finally, last week, I determined that we had enough intelligence to take action and authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice," Obama said. "Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abadibad, Pakistan.

"A small team of Americans carried out the operation with extraordinary courage and capability. No Americans were harmed. They took care to avoid civilian casualties. After a firefight, they killed Osama Bin Laden and took custody of his body."

Almost ten years after the attacks of September 11, 2001, the mastermind determined to be behind them and so many other acts of terror is dead.

THE CIA IS SUPPRESSING THIS WITH THE MADE UP BIN LADEN KILLED STORY
ONCE THIS WAS COPIED AND PASTED ONLINE IT SHUT DOWN MESSAGE BOARDS.

Here are some wanted terrorists, some for U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya & Indonesia, look-a-likes for media moguls, CEO’s, and the current administration. This is a large organization of scam artists who ran the last election on Youtube. I've been tortured after reporting this 3 years ago to FBI.

All of this was online years before the last election. Search Google Images for;

Sarah Palin’s family & history is fabricated using logarithms. She became a media magnet to flush out Barack (O’Bomber) Obama’s entire socialist “organized community.” Maverick Sarah (Barrac)uda) Palin, is short for palindrome, such as SOROS. Maverick McCain’s likes ABBA, another palindrome. First forum to hack me online was FIB Scams 101 with the owner called Mama. Sarah coined the term “mama" grizzly. Under investigation for insider trading of a search company called Mamma was Interstate 77 American Airlines Stadium NBA Maverick Mark Cuban. On 9/11 American Airlines flight 77 hit the Pentagon. Palin’s daughter “Willow,” is short for Willow Run Airport off I-94, her birthday 7/7/94. “Piper,” also a plane, shares a birthday with Bruce Willis (John McC(l)ane fights the terrorists in Die Hard.) Sarah’s “siblings” are Heather Heath Bruce & Molly Heath McCa(n)n. “Trig” shares a birthday with congressmen from WI, IL, and MI. “Track” shares a birthday with Adolf Hitler. Obama shares a birthday with Nobel Peace Prize winner Yasser Arafat. “Tripp” Palin appears to have multiple birthdays, like Yasser.

In my strongest opinion, Osama Bin Laden is also a spokesperson, and a look-a-like. Osama represents Obama/Biden (Bi)n La(den.)

This is a great day for America because we needed closure for 9/11. And unmistakably this validates Obama as our Commander in Chief. I tuned into FOX. They are bending over backwards finding ways to talk about this without acknowledging Pres Obama. I commend President Obama for his accomplishments for being in charge and going in when the time was right to capture and kill this EVIL MAN!
"YES WE CAN"!!!!! President Obama in 2008 said and kept his promise to AMERICA! He has MY VOTE 2012! Bush could NOT get the JOB DONE!

It would compliment the joy of the American people if the photo of the dead body of UBL could be seen on the internet to show to the world that indeed he is for real - DEAD UBL.

Are you people that ignorent..­. really? Obama had nothing to do with this operation killing Osama. He wasnt there putting his life on the line, he wasnt carrying a gun looking for this evil man, he wasnt in a gun fight, he was in the white house sitting back enjoying life at our expense. Some of you people really need to go back to school and educate yourself. He is our leader and cheif but dont make him out to be a hero because he is not the heros are in the middle east fighting for you people who some of you dont even care about. those are the people we should be praising not obama.

Um... you think it would have happened without him? No.

In the same vein, then, by the way, technically nothing our President does is "right in the middle" of what happens in America, so according to your logic you can't find fault with anything that happens. But you do. Stfu.

Give me a break, How in the world can anyone expect us to believe this joke. It's just like Obama care. Forced down our throat. Shot a week ago....The Arab news worked to keep it a secret? Never. If it were to happen like anything else it would have read a week ago. "Osama Bin Laden has been shot and killed. we are waiting on results to confirm his identity" I cant believe Fox news is even going along with this pile of crap. I heard the news and red flags went up when they said obl was shot and killed last seek...Then before I could wake up they want us to believe he was buried at sea. What a joke. Fox if youre not on their side get onto to this and find out the real thing that is going on. He has probably been dead 10 years ago. Or he died a week ago. This would be really the thing to try to show Obama's patriotism for this country which is another joke. Dont fall into this crap.

I have always believed he could do it and it was just a matter of time. His efforts to help this country get back on it's feet is happeneing. Just because it's not in your neighborhood doesn't mean he isn't doing his job. Any presient that took over for Bush had sick hole to try and get out of. It was going to take money to get us out of a hole. So matter who was in office was goning to be the bad guy because of the debt. He said it was going to take a lot to get this country back on it's feet and we are recovering slowly. Nothing happens overnight. I voted for him and will vote for him again.
