    The rumour I hear is he's dead and US forces have his body.

    President about to make a statement.

    Crazy. I'm at work right now, and like 3 people I work with just received text messages saying Osama was dead.

    I'm kind of surprised that he was still alive.

    Apparently he had long term kidney disease... I thought he would have died in a cave years ago and no-one had found his body (we haven't seen him in the media for years).

    Props to the US forces.

    It's certainly good news... but might not mean very much. Al Qaeda was always more of a movement or 'franchise' than a hierarchical organisation with command and control.

    Agreed, I don't think this will stop or slow anything. Knowing he is dead though is a good thing.

    I'm glad he's no longer a threat, but really wish we could have caught him with out spending ourselves into generations of debt...

    I'm missing Andy Rooney for this long drawn out CBS announcement. :p

    I mean, all I need to know is is he dead or not. I don't need 20 questions to 20 different reporters/analysts/etc on whether efforts have been steeped up in the last few months to find/kill osama and other information.

    Good weekend for Obama. He got even with both Donald Trump and Osama bin Laden.
