“The United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden,” President Barack Obama has just announced.
Almost 10 years after the September 11 attacks! This story couldn’t have possibly spread any faster than it did on Twitter tonight.. I was casually browsing when I saw one ReTweet, followed by an explosion on my timeline!
President Obama said that on Sunday, a small team of U.S. operatives launched a “targeted assault’’ on a compound in the Pakistani city of Abbottabad where months of intelligence work had established that Mr. Bin Laden was living. Mr. Bin Laden was killed after a firefight, and the troops took custody of his body. via NYT
During his 2008 election campaign Obama repeatedly vowed: “We will kill Osama bin Laden.” As luck would have it, they did just that. It is now being reported that this will provide a major boost to his 2012 re-election campaign.
But the big (conspiracy) question remains: Did Osama really do it?
The media in Pakistan really have no clue about how to fool the public.. They released this manipulated image of ‘Osama’s dead body’ but it was very quickly reduced to a fake – by a Twitter user! Wow, Twitter really is slowly getting on par with mainstream news for speed and accuracy!
The plot thickens.
