We Got 'im
Of course we have to be apprehensive about this announcement. There are many holes in the story, and the fact that the body was "buried at sea" and there is no video/images of deceased bin Laden or raid released as of yet, makes the story a bit muddled. So I take this news with a grain of salt.
Nonetheless, it is a relief, weirdly. This guy has kicked sand in America's face for so long now, he definitely had it coming. For those of you who are proponents of his fair trial here in the States, be assured he would have gotten nothing of the sort. A man who masterminds, or at least takes credit for, the murder of over 3,000 innocents has dug his own grave.
At least the raid sounded cool. Seal Team Six, moves in swiftly takes out tangos, neutralizes target, yeah it sounds like something out of SOCOM Fireteam Bravo. Yes, I deserve to be publicly stoned for comparing real life to a video game as if video games are the predecessors of real life. Regardless, the news that Osama purportedly grabbed a woman as a human shield gives me images of "Mile High Club". Alright, I'm done.
Rest in Pieces, Osama. Sharkbait, Ooh ha ha.
