  • Primetime interrupted: Osama bin Laden dead

    President Obama has endured entertainment industry criticism over the last few years for requesting premium broadcast air time for making speeches. But Sunday night’s abrupt and unexpected interruption is unlikely to draw any complaints. Multiple news organizations are reporting that the White House is set to announce that, at last, Osama bin Laden is dead. ABC, CBS and NBC have cut away from scheduled programming to cover this enormous news. With all the back and forth between President Obama and Donald Trump in recent weeks, Twitter flared up with amused conspiracy theories when NBC News cut away from Trump’s Celebrity...

    WASHINGTON — Osama bin Laden is dead and his body has been recovered by U.S. authorities, U.S. officials said Sunday. U.S. President Barack Obama was to make the dramatic announcement shortly in a hastily called, late-night appearance at the White House. It is a major accomplishment for Obama and his national security team. Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, had repeatedly vowed to bring to justice the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington, but never did before leaving office in early 2009. U.S. officials said that after searching in vain for the al-Qaeda leader since...

    I remember that Bin Laden was said to have a bodyguard who would kill him if he was ever about to fall into US hands. Maybe that's how he died because I don't think Obama said our forces actually killed him.

    The most important thing is justice is served and gratitude to our military for the hard work they achieved in getting Osama. But libs on the networks are talking about political victory for Obama and game changers for his reelections anybody remember Bush and his 90% approval because of the Gulf War swift victory? It fell apart because of the falling economy In a few weeks if gas prices go up higher...any bump in Obama approval or U.S. euphoria which we ALL should be glad about will fall apart.

    Al Qaeda terrorists have threatened to unleash a "nuclear hellstorm" on the West if their leader and world's most wanted terrorist Osama bin Laden is nabbed.

The documents are secret details of the background to the capture of each of the 780 people held at or have passed through the Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba, along...

    Secret government documents leaked to the media last night reveal a top Gitmo detainee vowed to unleash a "nuclear hellstorm" if Osama Bin Laden was ever captured or assassinated. Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the suspected mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, claimed Al Qaeda had hidden a nuclear bomb in Europe that was tied to Bin Laden's fate, according to a dump of classified documents released by the WikiLeaks website. The frightening information was in thousands of pages of dossiers of detainees being held at the controversial Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba. Mohammed's boast to his Gitmo interrogators remains unconfirmed, but officials...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee sees a Libyan stalemate and wants NATO to bomb Moammar Gadhafi's inner circle and military headquarters. South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham says those closest to Gadhafi "need to wake up every day wondering, 'Will this my last?'" Graham tells CNN's "State of the Union" that the quickest way to end the stalemate is "to cut the head of the snake off."
