Breaking News: Osama Bin Laden is DeadPosted: May 1, 2011
President Obama will be making an announcement on TV shortly.
What I’m seeing right now is that he was killed in a predator drone strike. ABC reports that there is a DNA match. John King is saying they have actionable US intelligence.
CNN: Bin Laden killed “In a mansion outside Islamabad along with other family members.”
There’s a lot of twitter stuff out there about how he was killed. It sounds like this operation may have started about a week ago. Obviously, the President’s speech is going to clear some of this up.
Update: The President has announced that it was a US operation outside of Islamabad and that there was a fire fight. Evidently, US special forces acted on the “actionable” intelligence. The attack was today.
