I feel badly for the woman used as a human shield.
Yeah, me too.  The al Qaeda legacy of cowardice is now complete, from mass homicide missions against unarmed civilians to hiding behind a woman during a raid.  

Was she harmed?  President Obama said no Americans or civilians were harmed, so I assume she wasn't, but there are undoubtedly others who know more than I do.

Check out the place he was hiding: http://tinyurl.com/abottabad

Golf courses, squash courts, a hockey stadium, green trees, suburban houses? Pakistan's got 'spailing to do.

Yeah, the haters are gonna keep on hating. He'll get some support from the wishy washies though. I'd be shocked if he breaks 60 in any poll. It would have shot any GOP president over the moon. There's obviously a double standard.

She was killed--total casualties reported as, I believe, three men, two of them Osama and his son, and one woman.  I don't know any details about the woman, though the fact that she was in the compound probably prompts U.S. officials to count her as a bin Laden sympathizer.  When the president said no civilian casualties, I assume he meant that, despite the fact that the bin Laden compound was in a civilian neighborhood, no one else in the neighborhood outside the compound died or was hurt.

Also I haven't read most of this thread, so I don't know if anyone has pointed this out yet, but all the jingoistic, revenge-fueled celebration is really gross and speaks pretty badly of Americans.

I was floored when Inks said a "20-30 point jump for Obama"... 2-3 points is more likely than that!  
I'm sure Rush and all the retards on the radio will try to spin this against Obama any way they possibly can.

That's so sad.  It kind of puts a damper on this 'celebration' for lack of a better term.  At least there weren't anybody else harmed or killed outside of those three people.  I pray for her family.

We'll find out probably around mid to late week once the news sinks in and makes its way to the poll numbers.

Oh stop being a downer Lief. Humans are a revengeful breed. It's human nature. Your country's military just killed one of the most corrupted and horrible men in the world. People have a right to celebrate it.

Obama gets some plus points of course for making bagging the badass a top priority, at the highest level, and then getting lucky. So any bumps he gets in the polls is deserved. JMO.

They have a right to celebrate it, but it doesn't make it any less disgusting or disappointing. Death shouldn't be celebrated.

Just got back from the White House... I have some pretty amazing photos and videos I'll post tomorrow.

Crowd is almost entirely GW students with a few Georgetown kids arriving now. Hardly anyone over the age of 22 or so.

I am reminded of:



Of course the Argies didn't kill thousands of Britons, but Bin Laden was only a part of the anti-American movement. Hopefully this closes the book on a sombre chapter of American history.

He's going to break 60%, you silly pessimistic liberals. I don't know if it will last but he will.
