Follow The President's Announcement To The Nation That Osama Bin Laden Is Dead

Tyler Durden's picture

Update: It is now confirmed that Osama Bin Laden was killed in an air strike last week, and the US has the body. Expect the media to be drowned with stories of imminent terrorist "retaliation" which will push a flight to USD "safety" and purportedly drop commodities.

Lots of wild rumors about Obama's imminent late Sunday announcement to the nation, chief among which is that Bin Laden has been killed. The address can be followed live here.

Rumor that Ben S. Bernanke & The Federal Reserve have been attempting to 'blow up' the US Dollar and are to be targeted as enemy combatants.

10 years of the most powerful military actions in the world . . . we'll celebrate we got "this one guy". And all the other bad guys no prob.  Osama Bin Laden.  No legacy . . . CNN insane "We'll all remember exactly where we were when we heard this news . . . ."  No WE WON'T.  Where we were on 9/11, yes.  Tonight.  Forget it!

Wait, so, aah, Bin Laden was Q/Gdaffy's grandson?

Obama stated:

"Look, the U.S. economy is in the shitter, record numbers of Americans are on social benefit programs like SNAP, the number of foreclosures is set to surpass 2 million in 2011 and maybe more than that in 2012, the real unemployment rate is close to 20%, and the real inflation rate is close to 8% annually, with $5 a gallon gas in sight...I get it...I do...I feel your pain. But Osama Bin Laden was killed while I was the sitting President. So forget about your problems and rally around Rome burning."

Impressive - so how did you get a copy of his 2012 fund raising speech to be used for the rest of the year?

Does this mean he'll win another nobel peace prize?

Yes, because the guy was so great that he had a super spy henchman lair in the Tora Bora mountains that no one has yet to find, and they turned out to be made up.


The guy was so scary that he had to use body doubles in his videos until he could only release audio tapes.


Some people are so scared of the boogeyman that they have lost all ability to rational though. You would be one of those people.


chirobliss's picture

Hang in there Nid, you'll get it yet, just keep hitting those keys and eventually, like the 500,000 monkeys with typewriters you'll generate a "Hamlet"... well maybe I'm expecting too much.

Keep working though, something that makes sense will eventuate I'm sure, because I just can't help, when all is said and done, to think the best of simple people.

Ok, so:

1. Hooray.  Does this mean I don't have to choose between sexual molestation and irradiation anymore in order to board an airplane?

1a. Has the War of Terror been won?  Or has only Chapter 1 come to a close?  Stay tuned to a MSM outlet near you!

2. This is the pre-cursor of something else, something that they need to pull off while the dupes are distracted.

2a. Perhaps this is simply a gracious gift of "closure" bequeathed unto the useless eaters as a small token of thanks for all their years of production and labor donated to the elites?  To give them that last feel good moment of the year before the stun blow and their heads lopped off to be sent off for butchering...

2b. Or perhaps it's a distraction, a sleight of hand to throw off your attention while the real game gets played over here.

2c. Or both.

3. It is a tale, consumed by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

I am Chumbawamba.

I absolutely cannot believe you picked up 33 junks on this comment.  Must mean that the instant rehabilitation of the complete and utter loser actually took root like poison ivy in a hot house.  Fuck, Chris Mathews and that loud mouth cunny, whatshername, should be recieving fat bonus checks from GE.  Stellar job on the prop front, one for the textbook.  By the way the complete and utter loser is now most definately a war criminal (just like fellow peace laureate Henry Kissinger) a residence has never been, and never will be, under any circumstances, a legitimate military target.

The easiest call ever was that Obama, a Zbig and Kissenger protege, would be the one to bag Osama.  Tim Osman (Osama's CIA code name, which is code for 'The Ottoman') was put into play by Zbig under Carter when the Mujahideen was established as a proxy war force to at first battle the Russians, and then to use as an antagonist.  Osman was the left hand of his father, who owns the Carlyle Group along with the Bushes and Sarkozys.  Osman has been dead for years.  He was hospitalized and was barely alive the months before the September 11th bombing.  It was Obama's trump card, and Zbig had this one stashed for right when the dollar was about to fail, which it is.  Now when the dollar fails, which it will in a matter of weeks if not days, the US Empire, or what is left of it, will say to the world, 'But you all need us!  Look at the good we do!  Who will apprehend the criminals if not us?'

So yes, Obama is going to get a big smack on the lips from Nobel, the long forgotten Rotheschilde liasion.

Careful, Len. You don't want to pop the dummy balloon. That is all the sheeple have left.

The Ottoman is pronounced dead on May Day......


Let go of your balloons sheeple, just let go.

mr hendrix you are looking to be on a bad list somewhere. i for one stopped speaking truth to the wacky shit occuring in this timeline long ago. now i can sleep at night even when i hear click clicks during my cell phone conversations. propaganda machine is ramping up super duper overtime. that can only mean that there is some crazy shit about to pop up over the horizon in the middle of the road and we are doing 90 with low visibility

Mr Lennon Hendrix's picture



from me to you I think we are all in the state before a collective death and that we are dreaming, or rather remembering, our last moment on earth.

SWRichmond's picture

I will waste no time trying to prove or disprove.  Obviously, real or not, alive or long-dead, OBL was no longer useful.  The story was no longer serving any real purpose.  So, the only question is: now what?  To what use will this piece of news be put?  Obama simply getting credit for it would be just a waste, even with the obvious meaninglessness of the report.  

Fox news last night had some right wing beyotch crowing about how this meant that all the ME fence-sitters were going to join the U.S. side now.  OMFG.  Ten years later?

Sparklies of death: Wailing about any of these issues, or the dozens of other issues that cross the pages at Drudge, WND, InfoWars, et al, is a waste of valuable time and energy.  Beware the Sparklies.  One day you'll want the hours that you devoted to Sparklies back.  They'll get you killed.

I'll be cutting back on my time here.  Peace.

peace to you amigo.   thanks for the doses of sanity.   good luck with your garden this year.

As a kid I lived near the East German border. We always heard those clicks, when we did a telephone conversation. Sometimes we greeted our East German spies.

I can remember very well, when I served in the army, we used to be near the border. One day, we got a call from the other side and they congratulated one of our men - in fact, it was his birthday. That was scary - and we had to reconfigure our whole communication system. Those bastards - you know, some of them are now working within our secret service. Nothing has changed - Hitler's men were also used by all secret services, when WWII ended.

I was running with my platoon along the canal in Berlin, E Berlin towers on the other side, and we all turned our faces away and flipped the bird to the guards. The next air coordination meeting the Russians brought a black and white photo of us and started bitching to the 2 star. He told them what can I do no faces, 30 guys in pt uniform. Word came down, no more fippin off the comrades.

I'll bet that general has the photo on his "I love me" wall

Seriously?  That's their plan?  This is turning into one of those movies that's heavily hyped, with big name actors, lots of explosions and amazing special least in the trailer.  Then when you go to see the actual movie it totally sucks.  That's what I feel like now.

This movie sucks.  I want my fucking money back.

Exactly. Well said. Full stop.

Husk-Erzulie's picture

Just want to point out a sort of thumb in the wind observation.  Twenty-four hours ago the news was broken on the Washington Post website, not a fringy blog, that Ghadafi's grandchildren were killed by by an airstrike (on a civilian neighborhood)  which was meant to assasinate him.  The comments were running by my estimate 9 to 1 heatedly against the teleprompter.  It was looking bad, real bad.  So, ace in the hole.  Full on.

OK, tinfoil time:   Osama been dead for a long while now, and was taken off ice, then shot or blown up, for the occasion of Obummer's Hope and Change being seen more and more for what it always was.

Our leaders, praise be unto them, needed something to divert attention from the killing of the son and grandchildren of Kadaffi. 

Bananamerican's picture

yup. Pure tin.

ANY time is a good time to crow about "osama dead laden".

They just got him...TEN YEARS (of waste) TOO FUCKIN' LATE.

Rhetorical question...."can we just fucking LEAVE Iraq & Afghanistan now?"

onthesquare's picture

better be careful. Now he will be seen as a martyr. Rise again. There will be sightings of him all over the world. His image will appear on toast.

There will be a sequal. Son of BL

yeah, but who cares about OBL? He was just a pawn in this game.

The elephant in the room is hyperinflation and the death not of Osama, but of Mr Greenback.
