Osama bin Laden confirmed dead
Yesterday, President Obama addressed the nation and confirmed that Osama bin Laden – leader of the terrorist organization al-Qaeda and mastermind behind September 11 – was pronounced dead after a small group of American forces raided his hideout and exchanged gunfire.
Osama bin Laden was discovered hiding out in a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, a location that was confirmed by U.S. intelligence after months of investigation.
The breaking news sparked massive celebrations across the U.S. last night, including a huge gathering in Washington, D.C.. The confirmation of bin Laden’s death arrives after an exhausting, nearly ten year man-hunt post-9/11.
After nearly ten years of hiding, what does the death of Osama bin Laden mean to you? Did the U.S. make significant progress on the War on Terror yesterday or are organizations like al-Qaeda still a legitimate threat?

They threw him into the ocean a) because no other place would take him and b) they knew that if they buried him on land, people would gather there and make a shrine.

They Buried Him At Sea Because Nobody Wanted Him… they Were Not Offending The Muslim Traditions. The Burial Was At Sea Because Nobody Wanted Him. If Nobody Wanted Him Than They Have To Do The Burial At Sea.

Everyone, they buried him without offending Muslim traditions, so cool it. The only reason the burial was at sea was because no country would take him, so they had to do it somewhere not owned by a country–the ocean.

the only reason their dropping him in the damn ocean is because if they bury him in the ground on land people would probably piss on his grave. or do worse **** to it. just saying. so its good they tied him to weights and dropped him.

In some Muslim cultures, they do burials at sea. Also, your silly conspiracy theories are silly.

Navy Seals raided his compound.. thats not something you live through >_. And apparently they do have pictures but they are debating about when they will release him. (Al Qaeda would be kinda pissed seeing their leader with half of his head shot off, and there would be a higher chance of a retaliatory terrorist attack.) People are going to make conspiracy theories about everything, fact is that he’s dead.
