    The whole world cries for Osama, he was thrown to the sea like a dog, we will not tolerate Americans making fun of our religion. Do not complain when we do the same to you. Our organization is better than ever, we have young recruits ready for action. Now you will suffer the consequences of your actions.

    And we will fight you just like we did him. Terror in the name of God is not praising him at all. Indeed, it makes a mockery of how God intended his loving word interpreted and spread. Do pipe pun intended.

    @ Tarek: You know that threats online are still illegal right? Why would you be so stupid when it can all be tracked back to you? In this atmosphere? Really?! Not the best & brightest I guess. Do we really need more hateful religiosity? Haven't we had enough already? Read some of these threads and tell me terrorism and bin Laden didn't have a major effect on the US. Not for the better either,imo. The USA is suposed to be better than this. Better than the rest of the religious lunatics around the world. Terrorism is psychological. They want us unhinged & emotional. Osama wanted the US to go broke trying to fight Islam./Terror. Remember that video? Looks like we did exactly what he wanted. You cant wage war on ideology. Havent the last 10 years proven that much? Most wars have been in the name of religion. Ironic,huh? Blast me all you want,but this bloodlust & desire for pics &now video of a killing doesnt need to be on every front page. And you know it will! The almighty dollar will make sure of that.

    CNN first name in political opinion. Just try finding "news" on any of their programs. From Costello to Cooper, Blitzer to King it's all opinion , interviews and entertainment and "Breaking News "that's 2 days old. If I wanted this I'd watch Fox. They give a voice to all the nutcases and politicians. Now they are allowing second guessing of the brave Seals who went in and killed Bin Laden. Fareed Zakaria even refered to it as the murder of Bin Laden. SHAME ON YOU!

    Publish osma ben laden's death photograph and we'll give every radical Muslim their very own equivalent of Christianity’s crucifix. Those that are clamoring for release of the photo are misguided, anti US or simply greedy .

    He's just a troll pretending to be a Muslim. We get that a lot here.
    It's not really a threat, because there was no specific target named...that's how they work. Cloak their words behind a woman's skirt, as it were. Pathetic.

    Regarding Banasy's comment about Gods and the way he intened his loving word. I have come to believe over the years that "RELIGION" is how ppl interperut Gods word. So I dont look to RELIGION but GOD for my faith. Yes I do read from the King James Bible , the only one I grew up on and yes I have my own opinion on what he is saying to me. Having said that it doesn't take a Rocket scientist to know that GOD doesn't intend for us to KILL one another in ANYONES name, least of all GODS. How bout that , He loves us SOOOOOOOOO much that he sent his son down here to be the one who saves us from persecution and eternal damnation. Yet I am sooo very happy JESUS is the one who will judge me. I know now I will have a fighting chance of making it to live with GOD for eternity. Phew.

    Why is the media focused on whether or not bin laden was armed? How about the 3000+ civilians who were unarmed and had a plane put through the building they worked in!!! Or the brave passengers on the plane over pennsylvania were they armed when ARMED psychopaths hijacked the plane??? So what is the point of reporting whether or not he was armed, SYMPATHY! YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING!!! I can't believe that the media is trying to make OUR SOLDIERS the bad guys here! THEY WERE RIGHT AND JUST IN THEIR ACTIONS. He had no regard for human life so why should theire be any regard for his? His death is getting far more attention than it deserves, HE IS A MURDERER nothing more. NO COUNTRY WANTED THE BODY for a ceremonial burial NOT EVEN HIS COUNTRY OF BIRTH!! What does that tell you!

    Angel is exactly right. Furthermore there was a a bounty on his head that said "Wanted,dead or alive".That means armed or not it was perfectly leagal and justified to kill him on sight.Nothing was done by our troops that even comes close to being questioned.They did their jobs flawlessly and as they were directed.Good job guys!
