Obama announces the death of Osama Bin Laden




The founder and spiritual figurehead for al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, is dead.
President Barack Obama said in an address from the White House that a small team of Americans carried out the operation to kill bin Laden in Pakistan, and that cooperation from Pakistani authorities was crucial. Mr. Obama said bin Laden was killed after a firefight with a U.S. team, and the his body is currently in U.S. hands.

A senior U.S. counterterrorism official told the Associated Press that bin Laden was killed in a ground operation in Pakistan, in a mansion near the capital, Islamabad. While details are still sketchy, CBS News correspondent Chip Reid reports from the White House that officials are saying bin Laden was shot in the head.

President Barack Obama is expected to address the nation on the subject shortly.

I'm surprised they actually got him

He probably would have died of old age anyway. Or from AIDS from one of his 50 wives.

My only question is: Why NOW? They said that they had known his location for about a year (since august 2010).
