Osama Bin Laden is DEAD! Good Riddance

The world cheers as 9/11 mastermind and Al-Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden is confirmed dead. Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was killed in a firefight with U.S. forces in Pakistan on Sunday, ending a nearly 10-year worldwide hunt for the mastermind of the September 11 attacks.


"Justice has been done," President Barack Obama declared in a hastily called, late-night White House speech announcing the death of the elusive head of the militant Islamic group behind a series of deadly bombings across the world. Obama said that he had directed the US armed forces to launch an attack against a compound in Pakistan on Sunday acting on a lead that first emerged last August.

"A small team of Americans carried out the operation with extraordinary courage and capability. No Americans were harmed. They took care to avoid civilian casualties." A source familiar with the U.S. operation said bin Laden was shot in the head. His death was confirmed separately by officials in Pakistan. [source: Yahoo News]

Well, humble Anonymous won't say whether Osama' death was good or bad; if we assume that he plotted 09-11 - well, he got what he deserved; if he didn't - anyway, Osama was a pivotal figure in starting USA aggression against Iraq.

Anyway, Web provides a hilarious joke:
