    • compcos Pakistan has no clue of what happened. After the U.S had spread the news of the death of Osama and how he was in Pakistan. Then Pakistan started to hate the U.S for trespassing and not informing them. Of Osama. Pakistan wanted to capture Osama alive and torture him for what he did to the people of Pakistan and wanted revenge for the many Pakistani children he killed. And the U.S took that away from Pakistan.

  • Epic. One detail not mentioned here which is absolutely hilarious: They had forgotten to bring measurement tape, for verifiying his identity.. So one of the SEALs, who was the same height as Bin Laden, laid down next to his corpse so that they could compare.

The fact he was so careful with phone calls, but then moved into a giant luxury compound is absurd. He must have known he would be found

After the show ended, the cameras were still rolling with John Cena holding the WWE Championship he won that night, addressing the crowd that Bin Laden has been caught and killed. The whole crowd cheered, all the attention went from chanting Cena's name to chanting USA USA USA, and walks up the stage to salute the crowd.

I'll be off the grid I'll get everything that I owned and people that I know and destroy it and kill them so they don't know who I am.

  • Resistance becomes a duty when you live in a police state. Why is Assange in jail, but Clinton isn't? Why did Snowden throw away his life to warn Americans about the dangers of tyranny? How can officials and the Gestapo take an oath to defend the Constitution and then violate it everyday? Is a paycheck more important than freedom?

  • It would have been justice if they had put Bin Laden on trial and a judge would have condemed him to death. The way they did it was a illegal killign in a foreign country with multiple victims. Weather or not the people killed deserved to die I can´t say however what they did was not justice but a crime.
