Open Thread: Osama bin Laden Is Dead

BlogHer Original Post

If you're like me, you've been glued to your news channel of choice waiting for President Obama to come out and make his unanticipated late-night statement about an unidentified national security issue.

While at first reporters refused to speculate (and I was feeling extremely apprehensive about what new front was being opened up) they soon bowed to the pressure of social media (in my opinion) and let fly with their speculation.

The news: Osama bin Laden has been killed, by the U.S., and the U.S. has his body, so his identity has been conclusively confirmed.

This as we approach the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

So, thoughts? I have my own, but why don't you start?
