Breaking News: Osama bin Laden is dead, says President Obama

Some pretty sensational news this morning:

The Daily Express reports:

Osama bin Laden, the world’s most wanted man, is dead, US president Barack Obama confirmed today.

The man held responsible for the terrorist attacks in New York on September 11 2001, and the London bombings of July 7 2005, Osama bin Laden, was killed in a US operation in Pakistan. Speaking from the White House, President Obama said he authorised the operation.

The body of the Al Qaida leader was now in US custody, he said.

More on this story here and here.

UPDATE: The U.S. is not going to release photographs of Bin Laden's dead body.

Really this is a very big news to the entire world he involved in so many killings especially in New York twin towers destruction so he should be punished now god punished him so we all have to congratulate the forces who were involved in this operation.

And now we are told the body isn't available either because it was buried at sea in line with a non-existent Moslem tradition of such burial. Note that burial at sea on the Afghan/Pakistan border could not be a tradition evenn if they wanted it to be.

I previously said i thought Bin Laden has been dead for years. I have no idea who this body belonged to, or if it exists (though something clearly happened that hugely embarrases Pakistan) but I do know that the official story has enormous holes in it.

For once I agree with Neil Craig about something: no body, no OBL!

I try to imagine a worse case scenario: imagine the next US election - Obama, dragonslayer, against a GOP lineup - Palin, Bachman, Trump, Cheney, or something worse they've still to spring on us, promising repeal of all rights, execution of all prisoners, return of slavery, ... the polls show the GOP is going to get NO seats anywhere at all. THEN, 2 weeks to go, Pakistani officials admit they lied to aid Obama, messages purporting to be from OBL start coming thick and fast, a nuclear bomb goes off in some tastefully chosen (possibly European) city , and hey ho the nonny oh, the GOP romp home to institute a fascism so severe it will make Hitler look like an Enid Blyton character. Enjoy.

Enormous Holes! Oh it is a lot worse than you think. I hope you all go quickly to and find out the Al Jazeera interview that David Frost had with Benazir Bhutto. In it she said in late 2007 that Osama had been murdered by Sheikh Omar Said or had died of kidney dialysis. We will never know the whole truth and besides there are so many tons of questions that need to be asked about the death (or if it is the man killed) of Osama Bin Laden.

At the start of relevant history, some MozzzLemzzz made the motion of waking up one fine morning, stretched, yawned and thought to themselves, "This is a special morning because today is the start of relevant history, so what are we going to do from now onwards? Ahaaa! Praise be to Allah!", They thought, "We are going to be evil terrorists and we are going to do some harm.

The next thing we know an evil female mozzzlem hijacks a plane and becomes an evil heroine while "the innocent ones" looked on with horror. Eventually, the inaction of the ones not incapable of doing no evil encouraged other evil terrorists to have more evil ideas and they ended up killing a lot of the innocent peoples using extra powerful and very evil box-cutters to hijack a few planes and ramming them into tall buildings which, as a scientific consequence, collapsed on their own footprints.

Then the leader-of-the-innocent-peoples vowed to protect the freedoms of his peoples and to uphold the principles of justice. The leader-of-the-innocent-peoples was, as expected, brave, just, truthful, upholder of the principles of humanity and his armpits smelled like a bed of roses. In addition he was very intelligent and very clever too. So he came up with a clever idea and declared a war-on-terror.

From then onwards, those responsible for the security of the innocent peoples kept looking for the head-evil-terrorist. They invaded an evil country to take back some WMDs, for fear that they might be used against the innocent ones instead of the other evil terrorists they were intended for, but the innocent ones were easily cheated by the evil leader, of that evil terrorist country, who sought to embarrass the leader-of-the-innocent-peoples by hiding those WMDs in his tightly clenched fist and keeping his hand behind his back hence the innocent ones never found the WMDs.

This obviously made the leader-of-the-innocent-peoples very mad and he threatened the evil leader with collateral damage. However the evil leader kept thumping his evil chest and that is when the leader-of-the-innocent-peoples ordered his chief innocent security guy to use collateral damage and kill thousands of evil terrorist babies, men, camels, sheep, goats and their terrorist chickens and a lot more evil terrorist things we don't care to mention here for the sake of brevity but we do like to mention that their burka clad suppressed women were thankfully liberated to become burlesque stars.

Anyway, after snooping around for a long time, they found the head-evil-terrorist hiding in a luxurious palace aka ramshackle-house-with-peeling-paint in another evil terrorist country and to the utter delight of those responsible for the security of the innocent peoples and in contrast to the WMDs of the previous evil country, this country had noookes.

Then the new leader-of-the-innocent-peoples (the previous leader had retired) sent his soldiers flying into the night towards the new evil terrorist country where the brave soldiers dished out justice to the head-evil-terrorist trying to hide behind one of his wives or may be not or whatever but in the end the forces of justice prevailed and they killed him.

Just think that the innocent peoples had been paying billions of dollars to this evil country. And to think that they had been feeding and clothing and providing healthcare and jobs for those evil terrorist men and goats and chickens of that evil country for the last 60 years!

Anyway, the brave soldiers then came back with the evil corpse. Then, on their way to the ocean, they quickly went to the 'drive thru' of the nearest McDNA and ordered one express DNA test with fries. Then they travelled lightning fast to the sea and dumped the corpse into the sea.
