Al Qaeda issued a statement Friday, finally confirming that their leader Osama bin Laden was in fact killed. The letter was signed by the “general leadership” and said:

“We stress that the blood of the holy warrior sheik, Osama bin Laden, God bless him, is precious to us and to all Muslims” the statement said according to the A.P., adding that his death would not “go in vain.” The statement also said, “We will remain, God willing, a curse chasing the Americans and their agents, following them outside and inside their countries.”

According to SITE which ran three pages Al Qaeda will not die with it’s founder and that its members would “continue on the path of jihad.” Bin Laden’s blood, they added, would not be “wasted in vain.”

“It will remain, with permission from God the Almighty, a curse that chases the Americans and their agents, and goes after them inside and outside their countries,” the letter said.   “Soon — with help from God — their happiness will turn into sorrow, and their blood will be mixed with their tears.”

My Take:  These people are pissed off. Does anyone really think for one second that just because bin Laden is dead that they will just go sit in a corner and cry like school girls who we’re dumped at the prom? Osama bin Laden was nothing more than a figurehead at this point. There’s plenty left to do. We must not stop until all remnants of Al Qaeda are destroyed.

His predecessor, George W. Bush, just three days after hijacked planes destroyed the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers, had stood bullhorn in hand in the smoldering wreckage to declare, “The people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.”

Almost a decade later, in a bookend to that historic visit, Obama came to New York to say that promise had been kept.

He said the killing of bin Laden told the world “that when we say we will never forget, we mean what we say.”

Obama visited Engine 54 in midtown, which with 15 deaths lost more members on 9/11 than any other firehouse, before heading to Lower Manhattan to talk with police and lay a wreath at Ground Zero, the Twin Towers site, where he also met with victims’ families.

“While it is understandable that President Obama would want to take credit for the action that killed bin Laden, it was unseemly that in his speech Sunday night, Obama implied that without his personal leadership, the death of bin Laden would not have happened. Too many people have worked to that end for almost a decade. To them – in the intelligence and special operations communities – should our thanks be directed.” – Jed Babbin, Washington Examiner

personally I think Former President Bush deserves more credit for the events of Sunday evening/ Monday Morning, then Obama does. If it we’re up to Obama and the rest of the dems we would have been out of Afghanistan already. And it was President Bush who put the pieces in play to begin with.


“The girls can’t name the University of Miami quarterback, because I can’t name him,” Ellen Bakalian says. “I don’t follow sports. I don’t watch Miami games. I did for a little while afterward, but sports aren’t my passion. I watched because Jeff did.”

Monday, she woke up the girls, 12 and 10, in their suburban New Jersey home and said the man who killed their father was dead. They put American flags in the yard. They watched some news on television before school.

But as the shock faded, as the celebration outside the White House worked its way off television, she sat in her New Jersey home and felt her life of nevers hadn’t changed at all.

She’d still never see her husband again. She’d still never watch him with her children again.

In case anyone needed a reminder as to why we are STILL fighting this war and will be for quite some time.


“This is a profoundly important moment not just for the families of those who lost their lives on 9/11 and in al-Qaida’s other attacks but for people all over the world who want  to build a common future of peace, freedom, and cooperation for our children.

I congratulate the President, the National Security team and the members of our armed forces on bringing Osama bin Laden to justice after more than a decade of murderous al-Qaida attacks.”
