Strange detail on CNN: apparently the go for attack was given during the royal wedding. Wouldn't it be strange if that useless show of lavish entitlement actually contributed to AQ's gaurs being down?

US celebrations

As the news of bin Laden's death spread, crowds gathered outside the White House in Washington to celebrate.

Former US president George Bush called his death a "momentous achievement".

"The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done," Bush said in a statement.

According to Al Jazeeera's Rosalind Jordan in Washington, the operation had been in the making for the last 9 or 10 months.

"The fact that it happened inside Pakistan, there have been suggestions that Pakistani intelligence may have been protecting them," she said.

Reporting from Pakistan, Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder said the development had caught a lot of people by surprise .

"He was considered by many as a hero, but not to the extent that people would come out on the streets. The reaction so far not likely to be strong on the streets, perhaps a protest here or there by the religious parties,." he said.

Will there be immediate terrorist retaliation


They do not need an excuse to attack us so the next attack will occur whenever they can get it together.

@BillRM,
I don't know, we almost have to. We can ride the wave, bring em home, tell the world the job is done. Get your **** together folks cause you harbor terrorists well be back. Wouldn't that give us some much needed credibility?
Sure, it's a risk, but matbe a risk we need to take to stat on top.

It will also be interesting to watch the reaction in Congress as the US government admits they've taken unauthorized military action across the border in Pakistan.


Yes I would love to see the GOP crying about killing the sob because we annoy Pakistan who had at least some people in their government who must had been aiding him as he was in the middle of the damn country in a mansion.

I agree with POM, in that I think it's pretty likely thatsomebody is already planning a series of revenge attacks on us because of this. But I also think it was something we had to do regardless.

@MontereyJack,
This was my first (posted) response when I heard the news. (page 1 of this thread)
I'm hoping that the response to the news of Bin Laden's death in the US is, well ... rather more restrained, rather than too celebratory.
That, I fear, could inspire retaliatory responses from his supporters, who could feel the need to demonstrate that the movement continues, despite his death.
For many Islamicists, he is a revered figure.
I'm certain his death will be greeted by intense grief. Let's hope revenge is not part of the response as well.

It was accomplished in Iraq as soon as we removed Saddam; not in Afganistan.

I heard it was not a drone attack. He was shot in the head.
A good place to shoot him; the large bowel 'd be good too.

Now that we got him I hope Obama comes clean about how deeply the Pakistan Military was in on protecting Bin Laden.

@hawkeye10,
Perhaps you could ask Bush that very same question?
