POTUSA gave a speech about it, even.

In response to this announcement, Donald Trump is demanding bin Laden's death certificate to prove that he was in fact killed by US operatives.

I got a random text at 11:30 pm, from Marionette, telling me to turn on my tv.

I sat the kids down to explain the whole thing this morning. All boys, so they were all interested. Boys like war.

Anywho, they all responded well to it. I was hoping for more questions, but as long as they don't seem ignorant of it at school today.

It's sad that I only explain big world events to them when something major happens, instead of as it happens.

Actually I typed "Wow!" and brought up google news on my phone. I was still half asleep and typing out "I don't have cable" seemed too difficult.

I thought of something tragic last night.

Just imagine being a kid named Allen or Albert whose lase name is Kaida (or something else phonetically equivalent)...

No big deal, you have a president named Barack Hussein Obama, I mean really.

As the resident conspiracy theorist, I'd like to point out that the hurried burial at sea seems awfully fishy.

It's not like anyone with half a brain hasn't already thought of that, Smitty. What super secret facility do you think he's being held in? Will he ever see the light of day?

Only Wikileaks will tell....

I'm confused.

So, according to just about everything I've read, a "burial at sea" is not in keeping with Islamic tradition, as the administration has claimed. If bin Laden had died while at sea, without any access to nearby land, it would have been, but since he died on land, Islamic tradition seems to require that he be buried on land.

That being the case, it definitely seems odd that the administration did so. They could have just as easily taken him off to some deserted piece of land and put him in an unmarked grave.

The theory that I like best is that the man has been dead for several years and we have been keeping him on ice so that we can "kill" him at a very advantageous time...like say when kicking off the campaign trail for re election after spitting in the face of the American people for the past 3 years.
