I think the photos of Osama Bin Laden should be shown to the public. He hit us at a very vulnerable time and place. Killed thousands of our brothers and sisters, mothers, fathers and sons and daughters. We have a right to see what happened to him. How cowardly, to use a woman as a shield. Of all places, the World Trade Centers. Our economic situation was shaky as it was, he only made it worse; and he knew exactly what he was doing. Hail to our Navy Seals! And I am so proud of our President; it was a tough call for him.

I am thrilled that Bin Laden is gone. JUSTICE! Hooray, Mr. President, Our wonderful Commander in chief. So Proud.
BUT I must say TO THE NEWS MEDIA, talk about it, yes,
ask the people on the street, yes, etc. BUT PLEASE be
responsible !Enough of showing the young people
chanting and yelling in the streets downtown. I remember on 9/11 when the news showed kids in Afghanistan chanting & raising fists with glee.WE Need to let them know we are SERIOUS ,we are the USA, a force to be reckoned with, that they can't win. That if you hurt the USA, sooner or later, you'll pay, Let us let them know we are capable of taking out all of Al Quaida but lets leave out the immature, cheering, this is not a football game !!!! THANK YOU...

Show me the proof!!
It is a joke, that a Million $ compound is built in 2005 next to the most important military town in Pakistan and nobody knows who moves in.
It is a joke, that we kill Bin Laden "conveniently" when Obama wants to be re-elected.
It is a joke to make us believe that Bin Laden lives in a "cave"all these years and we spent our tax dollars to sent troups into the woods to look for him and getting killed in the process!
Is this to say that our Inteligence agent are so proficient, that they cannot find Bin Laden while he lives in an ordinary town.
Who pribed whom, whose money is spent to keep him handy for when we need this convenient spectacle ?
It is a joke, that we go in at night, no proof of a body, telling us that there was a burial at sea? No picture, no proof, no body In a time when every cheap cell phone has a camera ?
The seals could just as well have brought a life-Osama to safety - who will tell us the real story - Wikileak?
And were are the other 5 bodies that seemingly got killed in the raid?
Is it all a fake or am I watching too many American movies !!!
That is the big question.

Sorry....there are to many unanswered questions in regards to this whole story. How were they able to get DNA results so quickly...thought it might take at least a couple of days to get test results such as DNA...though I could be wrong. Why was the body disposed of so quickly and at sea....sorry not buying into that...he did have family and sure they had to have some rights to the body if they wanted to have it. Love nothing better to have the Bin Laden episode put to rest.....that is if he were actually found guilty of the attacks which has never been proven....bush just couldnt produce the goods as he was in over his own head. Like I said to much has just not been not been revealed...way to much secrecy and the American people just buy right into it!

I am so proud of our President because he took a very big risk. Everyone that was involved all took a very big risk, lives of the Americans could have been lost, but thank GOD everything went well. There were a lot of lives lost during the 10 years and that will not bring back what we lost or the people we lost here and at war, but I guess it's a great thing. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

As some of us know or feel, Bin Laden was killed sometime ago and the world government is just now saying it, think about this Hitler was either killed or found dead on May 1st 1945. Strange huh!!! Think how convenient, dropping him the ocean because of his religious belief, I thought we Americans would have wanted the world to see his body to insure positive id, or was it just a convenience, no photos, not video, nothing but the word of politician and the military. Ya right, now the world will never know. Lies again. This world is going to hell in a hand basket with big business, and crooked world politician. Think about this . The Royal family decided at the last min to postpone the honeymoon, makes one think does it not, just how stupid most of us American are thought to be.

RAMONA

Why is that it takes the death of someone whether evil or or good to give people hope, encouragement and to motivate them to apire in unity love and peace. It's just something about that; that really bothers me and doesnt quite sit right with me and I believe that is really just so sad. because despite everything the man was a human being bad or ggo he was a human being put here by God and doesnt say a lot about some folks.-smh Just saying....

Frank

Cant really bring myself to rejoice over a mans death...especially when its never been proven he was even guilty of masterminding 9-11..Id have much rather seen him captured alive and brought to trial....not to mention the fact that I really have doubts about his death even taking place without substantial proof! The US has been know to fabricate intricate stories!

Meee

I bet there is a second leader whos gonna take over osama

Eileen

I'm scared. What will his followers do? Will there be ANY retaliation to this?

It's been ingrained in me as a Catholic to never have joy over a man's death but maybe it will bring peace.

annie

I really wish i could have been there when he crossed over and met his maker and found out HOW wrong he was!

BIN LADEN IS NOT GUILTY OF 9-11:

THE TALIBAN WANTED TO HAND HIM OVER TO BUSH IF HE COULD PROVIDE PROOF THAT BIN LADEN ORDERED THE ATTACKS.[]

BUSH DID NOT PROVIDE PROOF BUT BOMBS.[]

Finally!!! Although OBL is now deceased, doesn't mean the war on terror is over. Al Qaeda is still active, and we're still against them no matter what! A bittersweet victory for us and for all the victims and families of both the 1993 and of course 9/11 attacks.

Claudine Fernbacker

I would like proof that he is dead. See something a bloody room does nothing for me almost 3000 Americans died. That adds up to over that, family and friends affected by this and we get words. So show us a body we seen Saddam Hussein's and his sons Where is Bin Laden's body. Buried at sea that is a joke.

On September 11, 2001 our lives were changed forever. Many of us were only children ( I was 11 at the time) who were scarred by the event unfolding in front of our young eyes. None of us at a young age could really understand why anyone would want to do something like that, yet we found out who wanted to do it. The name Osama Bin Laden became for many of us, who the event through young eyes, the definition of the word evil. For 10 years we grew up in fear of what he would do next. We saw so many lose their lives just because he said they should that to many of us as children he became the real-life boogey man. 10 years many of us lived with the fear of this man. 10 years of knowing he was still out there and he wanted to hurt us. 10 years is along time we are no longer those children who saw the events of 9/11 from school windows. We are now young adults our lives really just beginning and today many of us can sleep a little better knowing the boogey man Osama Bin Laden is dead.

I think his death will let the families of all those who died and all the rescue/recovery workers finally exhale. They've waited a long time for their justice. I've never had any doubt we'd win the war on terror. We're Americans, we do what needs to be done no matter how long it takes. And I am absolutely positive there are already retaliation plans in place for just such an occasion. My biggest fear is it's not going to be the car bombs, or someone in an airport or an unattended bag. My fear is the possibility of hundreds of suicide bombers in our country who can walk into a deli or a place like that at any given time. It's the little things that can happen while we're watching for the big things that worry me.

Go to news footage of the room Osama bin Laden was killed in, pause at the end of the bed and you will see a (Yankee) NY written in his blood. Way to go seals! Am I the only one who sees this?

Tammy Anne Callahan-Callanan

Just like my poem written right after 911 "The Eagle Will Soar Again" and the eagle has soared with the death of Osama bin Laden...Thanks to the US Forces!!
