Where can we donate coal to make a hotter fire in hell for this son of a pig to burn in?

So....to keep this firearms related - I wonder what happened to that annoying mini-AK he dragged around with him everywhere he went?

All the major news agencies are reporting it. Supposedly his body was recovered after a drone strike in Pakistan last week and the DNA testing confirms his remains.

And I am immensely happy it was our personnel that got him and that there will be no trial to provide him with a platform to spew his venemous, hateful views.

Outstanding! Hopefully he was killed by an iconic American gun such an M-16 or better yet the Colt 1911.

Yes!

Let's Party!

I would normally say we need to respect the dead but in his case. I would be very happy to dance on it!

Here's a toast to all Americans!

For Freedom! God Bless America!

Wild, you're right. This is now being reported as a JSOC operation.

Assuming this is true, sounds like Pakistan is asking to not be the next Libya. Sounds odd that he was found in the open like this after all this time. President Obama making a real point that the orders came from him lacks tact to say the least.

The President's speech was basically - we'll kill anyone we decide needs killing, no matter where they are - sort of a surprise coming from Obama...

Anyhow, good going US military!

Glad to hear it was our trigger-pullers that got him. Wish I could buy those guys a few beers.

I hate to break up a party, but........

I really wouldn't be going to "soft targets" ie:..... Shopping Malls, Amusement Parks, Places with a Lot of people.

We are now going to see a lot of Retribution.

Just my .02

About time! Wish it happened sooner. We need to stay awake though and watch our backs. These slippery little freaks can't be trusted as far as we can throw them to possibly retaliate.


I'm am so happy this son of a bitch is dead! Pardon my American.

So we sent a team into pakistan to the compound where he was hiding. They killed him in the firefight and brought the body back out to afghanistan.

Without any american casualties. I call that a perfect victory.

My local news just said he was shot in the head, no idea how accurate that statement is.
