In what may be the biggest news since September 11 2001, and a turning point in the global war on terrorism, U.S. President Barack Obama announced that the 9/11 mastermind, Osama Bin Laden, is dead.
According to multiple news organizations, the United States has the dead body of Osama Bin Laden in its custody. CNN reports that the U.S. had a sample of Bin Laden’s DNA on ice for just this moment in history.
Some reporters knew about this critical development all day Sunday , but media organizations kept the news under wraps until the body was positively identified.
Obama requested network air time for the 10 p.m. hour on Sunday night to make the stunning announcement. Coincidentally, that time fell during the broadcast of Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” on NBC. The network interrupted its programming just as Trump was deciding who to fire. LOL!!!!
Two American presidents before Obama had tried and failed to capture and/or kill Bin Laden. It was 8 years ago today that president George Bush declared the Iraq war “mission accomplished.”
But 4,000 U.S. fatalities later in Iraq, Bin Laden still had eluded capture — until the USA completed its mission .
American forces are expected to release a picture of Osama Bin Laden’s dead body so that the Arab world has no doubt that the leader of Al Qaeda is dead. But Donald Trump probably wans to ask for more proof.
