On May 1st, 2011, America learned that Osama Bin Laden was dead. Bin Laden was killed in a Special Ops operation ordered by the President last week. The operation went forward on Sunday and we learned Osama was killed in a compound in Pakistan. He reportedly was shot in the head during a firefight and his remains were taken into custody.
Meanwhile, President Obama stalled longer than LeBron James’ decision to announce the news in the White House. We’re hearing he’s had the news for a few weeks but waited until after Royal Wedding to announce it because he was pissed about his snub. OK, that’s not really true but it was a great tweet from Lob Shots.
What really happened is that Obama decided to announce the news on Sunday night during the East Coast feed of Celebrity Apprentice to piss off Donald Trump. OK, that’s not really true either, but Trump won’t believe the news until he sees the death certificate. Anyway, it’s great news and something we had to share here. And if you don’t understand the Anderson Silva reference, go here. Thanks Rey.
