Osama Bin Laden Dead

As I'm sure most of you already know, the President announced that Osama Bin Laden was killed by U.S. Navy SEALs in Pakistan last evening. The details are still coming in, but this operation alone has been in the works for at least two years and the operation achieved its objective without an civilian or American casualties during the raid.

Apparently, the soldiers (as instructed) offered Bin Laden a chance to surrender peacefully, but he replied by opening fire himself and was subsequently killed. His body has been identified via DNA evidence and was later buried at sea. Reportedly, when President Obama was informed, the first two people outside the White House that he called were former presidents Bush and Clinton.

Further details continue to be available online and on television.
