To all those who read "Lone Survivor", how proud must Marcus Luttrell be knowing it was a SEAL team that went in and did the job. It won't bring back the guys who died up on that mountain fighting along side him but like he said on facebook, "the gavel has dropped. Verdict was death".

Set your separate threads for the partisan shit and keep this one to the subject itself, eh?

Jesus Christ. The fucking centrists around here are some polarizing mofos. And everyone's a centrist for sure. (not singling any centrist out either but no one is ever wrong politically ;-) ;) :wink: )

Bullet to the head when he refused to surrender, body buried at sea (allegedly) to conform with muslim practices. Seal team operation based on CIA/military intel and the dude living in a 3,000sq foot 'mansion' 100 miles from the Pakistani capital (that oughta play well down the road).

Social media is something else y'all. And I wish they coulda announced all this at 11am instead of 12 hours later. Eyes are like slits from waching the coverage.

Lastly- Fucking hate that 'USA' chant. Horrible.

So, to take a quick step back from the (totally justified) euphoria over the kill and the already trite politics of the situation, what does this mean for the near and long term safety of the country with respect to the threat from Islamic terrorism?

This slightly lessens the threat from Al Qaida proper, or AQ in PK, or AQSL or whatever you feel like calling them. That means that the long term, mass casualty, 9/11 style attacks that are planned and excecuted out of the FATA will be at the very least set back based on the death of UBL and the capture of any associated media/pocket trash. Good example of the type of plot associated with AQSL would the the disrupted NYC subway plot a couple of summers ago.

What this doesn't have any effect on are the attacks coming from AQ inspired disaffiliated groups/individuals, AQ in the Horn of Africa (al-Shabaab and their kin), and AQ in Yemen (AQAP, run by Anwar Al-Awaki). AQAQ was behind the Christmas airliner plot, and were the spiritual force behind Maj. Hassan for his attack on Ft. Hood. AQAP won't be effected by UBL's death at all, and if anything they'll be able to use it as a rallying cry to fire up the troops.

So while this is a significant tactical victory and will provide strategic intelligence on AQSL, it doesn't dramatically lower the threat from AQ affiliates and AQ inspired individuals. By no means am I dismissing this as "useless" because I think it's a great morale boost and will hopefully intensify the pressure on Pakistan to root out more of these scumbags. It was a great operation planned and executed by our intelligence and military forces, and the president had the stones to say "yes, fly into Pakistan and kill/capture this SOB."

A great thing no matter how you slice it, but also need to be cautious and aware that the war isn't over. It's kinda like the Indians April in that way. Really good that it happened, but there's a long way to go.

Good analogy this morning in that you should consider the terror network a franchise operation as opposed to a strict corporate pyramid function with UBL at the top. UBL considered the founder and a figure head at this point but still deadly due to his connections and ability to fund his revolution and others. It's going to spark attempts at retibution initially but it is a huge blow to the pysche and morale of AQ initially.

That's what I mean in terms of social media. People that aren't utilizing twitter are missing out and somewhat ignorant to what it can bring and where it can take you.

Those who take it as FB lite are in the dark.

IMO it's the single most important social media/technological development of my lifetime.

Two separate reports this morning said the Seals carried out the mission, but I also heard that Delta was involved......a combined effort from JSOC.

Alot of credit is being given to those involved and rightfully so, but my thank you lies with the young men who executed this flawless mission. Brave and heroic beyond belief. I would love to see the faces of the men who were responsible for the demise of the bastard, but I highly doubt that will ever happen.

For the first hour after the news came out, but before Obama's speech, it was widely reported (on Twitter) that the killing had actually taken place a week before, but confirming the DNA match was the cause for the delay in announcing it.

It was during this hour plus (approx 10:15-11:30)that Twitter was rocking with rumors and speculation....and jokes. My favorite:

"Jim Tressel knew about the bin Laden operation three weeks ago, but he didn't know who to tell"
"I believe it is the nature of the human species to reject what is true but unpleasant and to embrace what is obviously false but comforting." H.L. Mencken

One thing I haven't seen commented about much yet is the White House's apparent use of the birth certificate issue early last week as a diversion.

I could be giving them more credit than they deserve, but I don't think so.

Everyone was questioning the timing of last week's press conference and release of the long form BC. If this was a strategic feint to portray the White House as consumed with trivialities and Trump and birthers as a way to provide cover for a military operation that they knew at the time was imminent (they were doing trial runs in early April), then you've got to tip your hat to them...and I gladly do so.

Barry's team gets Obama, but they still criticize the politics of personal destruction.

They wing-nuts will never give Barry a break.


You didn't see shit from me about how it went down. You saw me criticizing Obama for what I thought was an incredibly weak, poorly written, and emotionless speech.

Still wish JB would come back to correct his typo, I swear if that was me, tripods or Dan he would be calling us out on a subtle attempt to be a racist. :thumb up:

FWIW, not in message board land but here in real life, I just spoke with a coworker who lost their mother in the World Trade Center. She is upset with the street celebrations because that is what many in the muslim world did after al Qaida attacked us.

I myself thought that the street celebrations were pretty awesome until I heard her perspective. Now my views are tempered, but I still think it was kind of cool.

We killed someone who is probably the largest scumbag on the face left on the planet. They killed thousands of innocent bystanders. No comparison IMO. Celebrate on.

Just don't use his initials. That makes you a birther. (I'm still trying to figure out who the f*** Adam Pods is)

I didn't have much of a problem with the speech. As far as being "emotionless", remember this is a man who decided to give a "shout out" to a political ally before speaking to the nation moments after an Islamist nutball massacred 13 Americans at Ft. Hood.

But to be fair, had he seemed overly jubilant or triumphalist he surely would have been criticized for "incitement" and blamed for the (inevitable) backlash in the Muslim world that we will see in the days to come.

My only gripe with the speech was that by mentioning that he came into the White House and made getting OBL his top priority in the Afghanistan campaign, he implied that it hadn't been a priority for the preceding seven years. A minor quibble.

Was pretty much completely disengaged from live TV/internet/smartphone after 12:00 yesterday and had no idea about any of this until I flipped on the morning news (I know...). This was the news moment that gave me chills:

No, because it probably isn't in the ocean, because we're probably being lied to as to exactly how, where and when this went down.
