Ding! Dong! Bin Ladin’s Dead!

About the best tag line I can come up with.

For the first time in his life, Barack Obama got something right. He gave the order to take out bin Ladin. Most of the puzzle pieces that allowed Obama to bring this pig down were identified and assembled during the Bush Administration. Many thanks to the Dubya for putting the military and intelligence assets in place that allowed this to happen. Thanks to Obama for giving the order for the take out, and not pulling a Clinton.

From Yahoo News:

Based on statements given by U.S. detainees since the 9/11 attacks, they said, intelligence officials have long known that bin Laden trusted one al-Qaida courier in particular, and they believed he might be living with him in hiding.

Four years ago, the United States learned the man’s identity, which officials did not disclose, and then about two years later, they identified areas of Pakistan where he operated. Last August, the man’s residence was found, officials said.

The mansion that bin Ladin was living in was built in 2005 and designed, specifically, to hide a high profile asset. Located in Pakistan with high walls topped with barbed wire and no phone line or Internet connection.

It also looks like one of bin Ladin’s sons was killed during the operation.

Many thanks to the courageous troops who executed this operation. Thank you!
