This is not what I expected to hear when I got back from the 7th Street Entry!

It is kind of weird how this is basically just being used as an excuse by college kids to party. Are they drinking on the Mall?

I wish someone had announced this at the show after being texted or something.

I saw kids with beers earlier, so I'm assuming they're still drinking.

This is a pretty interesting account of how the story began to get leaked out: http://mediadecoder.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/05/01/how-the-osama-announcement-leaked-out/?smid=tw-nytimes&seid=auto

Honestly, if I was still living by my school, I'd probably be out drinking... so I won't judge these young ones too harshly.

People are smoking weed and drinking and lighting off fireworks downstairs/outside, but I'm being a responsible student and not partaking on a sunday night. Why couldn't Barry have announced it on a Friday or Saturday night?

I was thinking about that. Could you imagine how insane things would have got then...

I did the "stand outside of the White House" thing when Barry got elected.  Once is enough for this lifetime.

It is very advisable to examine and dissect the men of science for once, since they for their part are quite accustomed to laying bold hands on everything in the world, even the most venerable things, and taking them to pieces.

I just got back. We're in the middle of finals so I could only stay out so long, but it's nuts out there. Thousands and thousands of college students.

You're too old to be out there now anyway. Hell, I'm probably too old.

I guess they're saying it was the Navy Seals who went in and did the job.

My brother is in the Navy, not a Seal, but in the Navy stationed at Kings Bay, Georgia (north of Jacksonville) and he was probably in bed when this announcement was made, but I bet he will be proud in the morning when he wakes up.  He probably won't give any credit to President Obama, but he will probably give credit to the military.  BTW, my brother is a man that did not like President Bush and does not like President Obama.

I wonder if they'll ever name the guy who took him out. Well probably not as they're not even sure who it was, but imagine what it's like to be one of those guys now.

The idea of getting blitzed and rallying at 2 am in front of the White House is such a great thing I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often.

He's got one heck of a story to share with his kids and grandkids.  It reminds me of a guy I graduated high school with who was among those that found Saddam Hussein in the bunker in December 2003.

FOX is reporting that the troops did ask him to surrender before he was eventually shot.

There's also unconfirmed reports that there are pictures of him after he was shot.

I'm sure the First Family are wishing they'd go home and go to bed already and let them sleep.  The President has a lot of work ahead of him today and he needs his beauty sleep.  And, oh, Malia and Sasha may still have school today.

Don't SEALs wear mini-cameras on their gear? The footage and details of this operation need to be released for entertainment/historical purposes.
