Ding Dong

The murderous son-of-a-bitch is dead and the United States killed him.

I feel giddy.

update: A report has him living in a mansion outside Islamabad. New York Post is reporting SpecOps took him out. Pakistanis have anything to answer for?

Monday Update I will tip my hat to the 10:59 Patrick J commenter on Mark Steyn’s post here:

AndrewL, that’s kind of our point. “The usual politics” weren’t suspended last night, when Obama bragged on himself and Panetta and refused to even throw a crumb to the hardworking efforts of the Bush adminsitration that helped lead to this. When he made no reference to Navy Seals or the hated American military...

After Obama’s speech (during it, I was texting Bingley, “Why the history lesson?”), major dad said, “Oh. So it was a CIA operation.” Ebola said the same thing on the phone immediately afterward and we were all amazed the spooks hadn’t fucked it up, as has been their wont lately. Heartened and surprised as I was by his, “God bless America” and, frankly, the balls to pull the trigger period, his, “me, myself and I” reared it’s ugly head straight off. WTF, dude? Great action/result, typical Obama bullshit ruining it aftward.

    If Osama was hiding that close to the national capital, yup, the Pakis hve a lot to answer for.

    But still…..in a mansion, huh? I suppose the caves were too damp or dirty.

  2. Ebola says:

    Not according to the commander in chief.

  3. JeffS says:

    Just watched the press release…..I gotta say, Obama did well. There’s one thing that he said that I take exception to, but it’s not critical. He called for unity, which is a good thing, but I’m reminded that all of his pledges thus far have expiration dates.

    And note well: Obama quoted from the Pledge of Allegiance. That’s going to pop some heads in leftie land. Is he feeling the heat from us bitter clingers to Guns and God?

  4. JeffS says:

    Ebola, do you mean that Obama isn’t going to hold the Pakis accountable for the inconvenient fact that Osama was deep in their territory?

    If so, I agree with you.

  5. JeffS says:

    I didn’t watch a “press release”! Jeez. My bad.

  6. JeffS says:

    Finally…..sounds like it was a ground assault that got the bastard. Good, Osama got it personal, and not from a drone attack. Works for me.

  7. Ebola says:

    To quote I Love Lucy: “Pakistan? You got some `splainin to do!”

  8. Dr Alice says:

    Wait WHAT? He’s dead??

    YES. Just wish it had happened on GWB’s watch, but at least he’s dead.

    Dubya says this:

    “The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.”

  10. JeffS says:

    “Pakistan? You got some `splainin to do!”

    Yep. Something tells me that our diplomatic relationships with the Paks will need one of Billary’s Famous Reset Buttons™.

  11. Ebola says:

    I love how our Commander tried to say that it was due to their sole participation that we got him. He fucks that up by mentioning that it took MONTHS TO FIGURE OUT A SIX FOOT PLUS ARAB WAS LIVING IN A MANSION OUTSIDE THE CAPITAL CITY OF PAKISTAN.

    Me thinks they need some thinking time.

    I was wondering if Ben Laden died on April 30th or May 1st.
    Hitler died on April 30th, and regretted he couldn’t wait until May 5th and die on the same day as Napoleon.

  13. Kathy Kinsley says:

    From what I’m reading, he died about a week ago. They wanted to make damned sure they got him before they announced it.

  14. major dad says:

    They are saying it was SEAL Team 6. Wondering how they made the insert , H-60s? V-22? And good grief they dumped his ass in the ocean? It is a long way from Islamabad to the water, would have been cool to be the one that shoved his body out the back of a C-130 or whatever, not as cool as shooting him in the head though.

  15. Skyler says:

    I know it’s only a minor verbal gaffe, but I thought it funny that B. Hussein said that Osama was killed “after a fire fight.” What did they do, stand him up against a wall? 🙂 We could only hope.

  16. mojo says:

    60 miles outside Islamabad, 1000 meters from a Paki military base?

    Yeah, the Pakis have something to answer for.

  17. Yojimbo says:

    Geez mojo, 1000 meters is over 3000 yards. That’s over 30 football fields, maybe 31, even. I’ve heard the effective Paki military range is no more than 25 football fields. I would cut them some slack.

  18. Rob says:

    Got your metrics wrong, Yojimbo. 1000 meters is about 1100 yards, which is about how many yards Drew Brees will throw for against the Packers on Opening Night. 🙂

  19. Yojimbo says:

    Ha! Opening night may be game 8. Yeah, that’s the problem with posting during market hours sometimes. I was converting the feet into yards in my haste. Well hell’s bells, it’s still out of their effective range anyway.

  20. Kate P says:

    Maybe it depended on which station you were listening to, but this morning there seemed to be an awful lot of reporters that were so excited they were stumbling over “Osama” and saying “Obama” and then quickly correcting themselves. Guess they got out of the habit of talking about OBL. I kind of got a kick out of that.

  21. Winston Smith says:

    I’d be thinking really hard about how to neutralise the Pakistani Nukes. And making sure they were verified as still all there.
    I trust the Pakistanis as far as I could spit a dead rat.
