    Osama bin Laden was a coward.
    He was responsible for killing thousands of people and then hid.
    Cowards do that.
    They hide.
    It was a matter of time before they got him.
    If there is a hell, then bin Laden is there.

      Innocent people always die in wars. USA started and before USA UK and France. As you kill, you will be killed were OBL's words, and he was totally right.

    do you really think Obama would nuke anyone, even if this was the solution to a problem of that magnitude? this man is the saviour of all as he himself would claim. USA is no longer a powerhouse as we once were. We are slowing losing this power struggle in the world. other nations do not look at this country the way they did years ago. The world is rapidly changing & we are being left behind with this administration. OBL has finished his job for the CIA.......

    OBL was respected even by his enemies who allowed him burial rites. People like Pamiri are not respected even by his allies, as they are on a pay-list. Corrupted Muslims are less than an infidel, as the Latins said:" Corruptio Optimi Pessima".

    was OBL really killed? did he not have body doubles? we know Arnold S.(terminator) does? the real OBL dead? is this just a conspiracy to reflect on how well obama is doing? obama will not involve the Pakistan gov't any longer, they will continue to support that gov't.........Did the navy do anything more than just bury him at sea? so quickly his body was disposed of......who knew where OBL was hiding all this time? The Pakistan gov't. is evil. how much monies do we give them year after year.

      I don't think so. OBL was no more operative and he had only 2 bodyguards. He was just a retired jihadist. Now AQ has spread in many different countries, and they will continue to kill western people, especially americans. Look at Morocco days ago, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, even Germany.

        Perhaps. But the figure head and symbol has died at the hands of the US. Justice was served and the healing for the families of 9/11 victims can begin. It is very important for them. It is also a blow, if nothing else, a great psychological blow to his sympathizers. Of course, it may also have a backlash affect. As they say, a best laid plan is found in the history books. Those chances have been calculated and the right decision was taken. The history books will, however, make that final judgement.

        The TRUE FINAL judgment will not be made by history books, as no one will be there to write them.
