BZ to the CT Team and Int people that made this all, possible.  I sincerely hope they are getting seriously plastered on the gov't for a long while.

Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

 Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and start slitting throats

In all seriousness, though, well done. :salute:

Fitting for DEVGRU to be part of the op and the Nightstalkers. The op occured at Abbottabad home of a Pakistani Army brigade and the Pakistani Military Academy is in the AO as well.

Oddly enough, May 1st is the same day Hitler was killed in 1945.

Courtesy of Fox News.

Yes this is actually what they had displayed.

I love the news anchors face.

No worse than CBC. Their anchor tonight (Wendy Mesley) said that we would hear from Stephen Harper shortly after the speech by Osama bin Laden. I wish I was making this up.

Can't say I'm sorry to hear this news. A joyous day, really.

Excellent news!  BZ to the SF Team that got him.  I sense a very large worldwide celebration on the horizon.  You have to wonder though with the Pakistani Intelligence and a brigade HQ in the vicinity, why they didn't pot him sooner.  HMMMMMMMMMMM.  The Pakistani intelligence service or Army wouldn't hold info on Bin Laden back would they?   ::)

May 1st 2011.

We got him.

May the families of the victims of 9/11, and those who have lost loved ones in the War on Terror sleep just a bit easier on this night. For there is one less Monster under the bed.

So, it's a given that some many of us will be consuming some a lot of fire-water tonight. Remember folks, don't get so into it that tomorrow you stay in bed all day, and forget to go vote. Just sayin'.

Watched this unfold on the news tonight, was about damn time. Drinks being had to the brave men and women who made his death possible.   

I am sure I don't need to remind anyone however that this day has come after the death of 155 servicemen/women who will forever be better human beings than the adversary.   :cdn: RIP to the 155

This to me is the vindication that our 155 brothers and sisters have not died in vain.  :salute:

The glass I raised to the fallen tonight did however taste just a little better.... may their families, and those who have suffered by the hands and mind of this monster find peace in his death.
