Osama Bin Laden is dead

I apologize for getting political, that’s not what this site is about, but OSAMA BIN LADEN IS DEAD!

Exactly eight years to the day that George W. Bush gave his “Mission Accomplished” speech, news leaked that Bin Laden is rotting in hell. Bin Laden, 54, was apparently killed a week ago by a US bomb outside a mansion in Pakistan. No US forces were hurt and some of bin Laden’s family was murked too.

Bin Laden, of course, was the mastermind behind the September 11 attacks and was the most wanted man by the FBI. The United States had been looking for him for almost 10 years. Regardless of what team you root for, we can all come together for a day and enjoy this special occasion.

I’ve never celebrated death before, but in this case I’m making an exception. It’s been nine years, seven months and 20 days since 9/11, and it still hurts.

In the words of Hawk Harrelson: HE GOOOOOOOOOOOONE!

President Obama gave a speech around 11:30 Sunday night and he summed it up perfectly: “Justice has been done.”
