There has been a delay in the 'official' Presidential announcement, perhaps due to the sensitivity of the circumstances (apparently killed in Pakistan), the need to secure USA and other countries assets against any possible terror attack in retaliation as it appears it was a CIA action, and to talk first with major national leaders (Afghanistan, Pakistan, Israel, UK among others) due the security needs.

I hope he did a very painful death and was the last one killed with the others present.

My heart certainly goes out to the 9/11 victims, and I am nothing but proud of my compatriots who serve...but this "victory" rings hollow. How long did it take to kill the mere figurehead of a movement that will live long after him? How many people died to kill him? How many years did we waste because former Presidents did not act? How suspicious does it look that he was killed in the capital city of one of our "allies" in the war on terror? One person cannot do everything that he is credited with. His participation I cannot argue and frankly I think they all should hang by their toes. But this is hardly a game changer guys. Think Arafat...

I stand with you all as history unfolds. I don't think any of us expected something like this to happen tonight. Wow. It is hard to believe that this Osama bin Laden became a household word ten years ago and that perhaps the largest manhunt in humankind has come to a successful end.

I know this is big. I feel the same way you all do. It has been a tough ten years for all of us since this happened.

Just a polite request - can we all do our best to keep this thread "CLEAN"? I know it will be hard. I'm just as ecstatic as you are. I have to go to work tomorrow morning but I think I'm gonna have to celebrate tonight. It's kind of a crazy idea to celebrate someone's death. But I know we are all good people. Thank you for your help on this one.

One unconfirmed report (CNN) has indicated that he was killed in a mansion in Pakistan where he was staying with family members.

Well MAF always maintained that wherever he was he would be nice and comfortable thank you very much.

Better without OBL, but I don't like to rain on the parade, it will make very little difference. Except that if the US did manage to kill him, there will be some revenge attacks.

Fisky on Al J was very interesting. He thinks OBL was very impressive but also not really in control of very much at all. It is his impression that there was no master plan and that individual actions were put to him for support but that it was more ground up organization than top down. Presumably AAZ will take over, but taking over probably means very little.

The other point that Robert Fisk made was that in a sense OBL was defeated in 2011, not by being attacked or killed or whatever, but by the Arab street finally rising up and getting rid of dictators, a feat that OBL for all his efforts was not able to achieve.

So it will probably be, "the King is dead, long live the King" except that the kingdom may well have been swept out from under their feet by the Arab street.

President Bush just issued a statement;

Sorry boys, but I don't see much to crow about here!

Up until now I had assumed that OBL had been spread out in some nameless bomb crater back in the Fall of '01. Now it seems that Public Enemy #1 has been out and about for almost a decade, and when they do hit him, it is not in some cave, it is in a Pakistani mansion.

I think this long delay is more of an indication of the lack of ability of coalition forces to make meaningful progress in the war against Islamic terrorism over the past 10 years.

Do I understand correctly that the American President is going to go on TV around midnight to announce this? You'd think the Imperial Japanese Forces had surrendered!

Let's not forget that at least part of the credit goes to GWB. Even if his presidency was a flop, his decision to pursue OBL even when things seemed to go out of hand is more than enough for me to give him some slack. This is coming from a Democrat and one who was opposed to many of Bush's policies (except Afghanistan).

Not hardly - many of those regimes were those Al Qaeda wanted to see overthrown. Al Qaeda did not want democracy in the Islamic world, they wanted islamist rule under Sharia - that is incompatible with democracy and civil liberties. Until we know what the new governments in Egypt and elsewhere look like, we cannot say whether the Middle East has gotten better or worse.
