Waiting for MSNBC to come on live… word on Twitter… Osama Bin Laden is dead.
David Gregory on NBC News: “Bin Laden killed by U.S. personel, U.S. has his body”… President Obama still not at the podium yet.
More to come…
David Gregory, NBC News …. More than 3500 days since 9/11.
NBC’s Andrea Mitchell… 8th anniversary of George W. Bush’s “Mission Accomplished.”
GWB didn’t do it… Obama did:
Osama bin Laden has been killed, two United States officials said. President Obama was expected to make an announcement on Sunday night, almost ten years after the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
One of the officials said that American forces, acting on intelligence, launched a “targeted assault” that killed Mr. Bin Laden, whose ability to elude capture for so long deeply frustrated the Bush administration.
Via Twitter: @acarvin CNN source saying this was a human special op and not a drone. Could explain reports that OBL was reportedly shot in the head.
Obama speaking now… Just listening…
President Barack Obama: “Justice has been done.”
Thank you Mr. President… Thank you. Now the mission truly is accomplished.
Truly the greatest accomplishment of Barack Obama’s presidency.
