I just heard that Obama is going to announce that Osama bin Laden is dead. Stay tuned.


Bin Laden dead.

Bush couldn't, wouldn't, didn't.

Obama did.

Bush failed.

Obama accomplished the mission.

Could we please bring our troops home now?

After 9/11 happened it was so unimaginable that I thought then as well now that their sinister plot (Al Qaeda) could continue against America without him. Heard while waiting for President Obama to come on that America has his body. God bless the U.S.A.

Bush had the bravery to start it and Mr. Obama rode coat tales to the finish.

It will be interesting to hear how they got him, and to hear what they do with his body. Whatever they do, they need to make sure there isn't some place where terrorists can go on pilgrimage.


A guy they were interviewing on TV said that Al Qaida operatives are not going to accept the word of the US that Bin Laden is dead and will demand proof.

I wonder how many Al Qaida operatives are going to be posting on this story?

Isn't it funny how it took Bush 8 years to lose Osama Bin Laden? And it only took 2 1/2 years for Obama to find and kill him?

Man I love this President!

Finally . . .

It Obama to get Osama. Kind of poetic.

@ ????: Nice to know that you think the current actions being taken by our military are nothing but "coat tales."

Cedar Hills, UT

Maybe Obama should be Secretary of Defense instead

South Jordan, UT

Bush had the bravery to start it?? HAHAHA Some of these posts are so funny. God bless the USA. 3,000 or so people who lost their lives on 9/11/2001 are finally avenged. Please people dont politicize the results. It was american intelligence, with our commander in chief providing them with the tools they needed. I think concentrating in Afganastan like we have for the last year with over 100,000 troops, probably helped. Rather than waste our time and efforts in Iraq.

Yeah. Obama got Bin Ladin. . . . .After ten years of us looking for him, 8 of those while he wasn't President. Sheesh. You actually think Obama would look for him if 9/11 happened on his watch? Not hardly.

Anyway, good for our troops! they are AWESOME.

Provo, UT

The team effort paid off to get Osama; unfortunately he was only one of the terrorists.

Cottonwood Heights, UT

This isn't about Bush or Obama separately. This is about our country keeping a promise that was made on 9/11..."We will hunt down and punish those responsible for these terrorist attacks." It wasn't Mr. bush or Mr. Obama who found and killed this evil man, it was our troops. We should put politics aside for one night and be proud of the fact that our country won't tolerate terrorism, no matter how long it takes to bring terrorists to justice.

It's naive to think or profess that either Bush or Obama had anything personally to do with the outcome of this. Rather it's our armed forces that have been pursuing Osama Bin Laden regardless of the name on the desk in the oval office. Ultimately, the military is responsible for the outcome.

Logan, UT

Okay, I've read the comments that Obama did what Bush couldn't. Get real. We might as well say that it happened because the Republicans took back congress. What a joke. Can we just enjoy the moment and quit making it political?
