If you haven't heard on the news yet they are saying the US has killed Bin Laden and they have his body and have confirmed it. Outstanding thought I would share the good news.

Ya... you're going to need to source that. It's sure as heck not on the front page of any of my usual news sites.

I'm watching it on CNN and it's on most of the major news channels. Unbelievable.

It's just coming "off the wire" right now... but apparently he's been dead a week and the body is in US custody, confirmed by DNA. At least that's what I'm seeing on Fox and other sites.

The CIA will be disappointed, they have lost a valuable employee.

Okay I had to go to CNN to find it. Nothing on BBC, CBC or Toronto Star. Very interesting. I'll wait for the official confirmation before I celebrate more than that.

Certainly the death of Osama Bin Laden is the achievement of a long sought after goal, but I wonder how much it will really hurt the cause of terrorism at this point. The decentralized cellular structure of a terrorist organization and the many players under different banners makes me think that while this is a well deserved feather in the cap, it also provides a rallying cry that may surpass the actual contributions of Bin Laden to their cause.

Edit: Wow, I thought I understood the 24 hour news cycle. But literally since I first posted the news has exploded onto all my usual sites.

It was just released that he was killed in a mansion outside Islamabad.

About time. We should have focused our resources on him from the beginning, instead of some two bit dictator.

This is my current Facebook status:

I hope Robin Williams was right, When Bin Laden was expecting his 72 virgins, He actually got 72 Virginians and George Washington is currently KICKING THE SH*T out of him!!!!!!!!
