Inside the Osama’s squalid hideaway (Mail Online)

Inside the Osama’s squalid hideaway: First pictures of terror leader’s secret lair was barely habitable | Mail Online.

So a terrorist mastermind lived in something little more than a trash strewn building site for over five years? For a few weeks or until the heat dies down, maybe, but years? Hardly.

Even now, we still have no definite confirmation of exactly who was injured, killed or maimed or not at what point at what precise location and the White House still can’t agree on a story.

The story is still fishy and I remain very skeptical. Not that it really matters whether OBL really is dead, there are enough blind followers left and he certainly wasn’t dumb enough to not ensure a clear line of succession.

But the question remains: Why now?

Osama bin Laden Killed by U.S. Forces in Pakistan – ABC News.

Finally! Well done soldiers!

Ironic that the least capable President in history got the chance to sign off on the assassination of the biggest bogeyman of this century. So in that sense, thanks for doing what Clinton wouldn’t.

I wonder who he’s been moved aside for. Ghaddafi is too small a fish.

Exclusive: Obama authorizes secret support for Libya rebels | Reuters

Funny how they buried that at the end of that article. But even so they left out the most important effect of that action in the 1980s: UBL and al Qaida. And aside from the fact that our former friends could again become our current friends, are we spawning the next AQ here?

Another one from the “I told you so” department. I have never for a second bought the official story that they can’t find the guy.
