My God, can you believe it? We managed to kill this one purportedly-enfeebled cave-dwelling refugee figurehead in just less than a decade!
We did it! We effin' did it!
President Obama announced late Sunday that Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al Qaeda responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks, was killed in a firefight during an operation he ordered Sunday inside Pakistan, ending a 10-year manhunt for the world’s most wanted terrorist. American officials were in possession of his body, he said.
President Obama said that on Sunday, a small team of U.S. operatives launched a "targeted assault" on a compound in the Pakistani city of Abbottabad where months of intelligence work had established that Mr. Bin Laden was living. Mr. Bin Laden was killed after a firefight, and the troops took custody of his body.
It feels good to know that the United States has now officially won the war on terrorism. No more terrorism! Forever! We win! We win!!
