Buoyed by the news that the economy unexpectedly added more than 200,000 jobs last month, U.S. President Barack Obama visited a transmission plant in Indianapolis today to promote his clean energy agenda.

Obama didn't mention the execution of the world's #1 terrorist, Osama bin Laden, by special Navy SEAL commando forces on Monday. Instead he focused on the early signs of an economic recovery.

"We've made this progress at a time when our economy's been facing some serious headwinds," the president told workers, citing high gas prices and the earthquake in Japan.

But the highlight of Obama's agenda was his visit to the returning Navy SEALS, Night Stalkers and helicopter crews of the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell in Kentucky today.

As demonstrators all over Pakistan burned American flags in mass protests of bin Laden's death, Obama thanked the helicopter crews that flew the Navy SEAL commandos into Abbottabad where Osama had been hiding out for the last 5 years.

Bin Laden's youngest wife, who was injured during the raid, said she and bin Laden never left the upper two floors of the million dollar mansion in the 5 years since they moved in.

Amal Ahmed Abdullfattah, 29, said she and bin Laden's other two wives lived with eight of bin Laden's 20 children, and 5 children from another family that lived in the compound. This indicates that while the U.S. was hunting Osama, he was busy making babies with his 3 wives. The children, who ranged in age from 2 to 12, were transported to a hospital and released after the raid.

Bin Laden's 18-year-old militant son, Hamza, who followed in his father's murderous footsteps, died with him in a hail of bullets at the compound.

In a statement posted in jihadist internet forums, Al Qaeda confirmed that bin Laden was dead, saying "Americans' Happiness will turn to sadness."

    bin laden was chillin in that compound huh? Pakistan was definitely helping him while taking billions of AID from the US. That money needs to be cut off and used to help our schools in the US.

  • KishaMinyonn

    As for the threats, I think we all expected that at some point. We just have to pray that they do not act on them or are caught before they get a chance to hurt anybody.

    You know what...I am beginning to piece somethings together about Sandra. At first I was floored with Sandra's treatment of Pres. Obama. Now I am beginning to think that maybe...just maybe...she was simply waiting for that magical moment when Pres. Obama stepped up to the plate he wanted to eat off of and actually became President of the United States. The posts lately regarding Pres. Obama on this site have been refreshing (I am a long time lurker so I am technically not new here). :clap:

    How is it that so many Americans are still doubting that he's dead, but Osama's own people don't even doubt that?

    The attacks would have continued to come rather we killed him or not, so job well done Mr. President.

  • ValerieB1

    Obama has to 1st clean up the mess that Bush left behind! He is trying to turn around a whole country and it wont happen over night. keep praying for USA Bin Laden ole crazy ass left behind some followers!

  • KsMommy

    Seriously? Are we not going to paint Bin Laden as some type saint? Some helpless man that the US preyed upon? For years people were screaming crying and question why he was still alive. But when he actually gets laid low. suddenly he's a victim.

    *drops the mic*

  • Terri B

    Obama said countless times during the race and again when he was first elected that to do all that he wanted to do would take at least two years and things would get wrost before they got better, and also that he would need the help of Congress in order to make it happen. He is only one man, it doesn't matter how much good he has planned for us, it can only come to life if Congress would work with him.

  • KsMommy

    My post is in regards to numerous reports that there is an investigation as to whether killing Osama was illegal. gtfoh.

  • Secret

    Okay can this all be done with now? Its getting ridiculous. Also if I go after those who did me wrong can I get rid of them without no problem or do the rules of the law changes? :rolleyes:
    This eye for an eye bit will not stop the next terrorist or anyone else from attacking the US. There is someone out there that is more lethal than Osama

    That's what's killing me. They talk about it like it's a regular house or a regular mansion, which it is neither. How many houses got barb wire on the concrete wall/fence? If the people in the neighborhood really thought it was a mansion did they wonder where the person worked or why he never went away from his luxurious abode? Those mofos are lyin. They had to know something was up.

    From Al-Qaida

    "The blood of the holy warrior sheik, Osama bin Laden, God bless him, is too precious to us and to all Muslims to go in vain," the statement said. "We will remain, God willing, a curse chasing the Americans and their agents, following them outside and inside their countries."

    "Soon, God willing, their happiness will turn to sadness," it said, "their blood will be mingled with their tears."

    @ Bird

    Not everyone would be curious to who is living in someone else's house of that magnitude. Some people really dont care. When I see a house with barb- wire I take it as if they dont want anyone on their land. There is nothing wrong with that.

    Well yes. You can press criminal charges of file a civil suit depending on what they do to you. If they kill you, depending on your state, the law may kill him/her for killing you. Are you of the belief that we shouldn't have killed him? How much jail time do you give a mofo for 3000 deaths around the world?

  • AWESOME ARSENAL

    @Bird
    I'm sure some people went in and out of the place but it wasn't Bin Laden.
    @WCC
    Alot of folks go to work and sit in the same cubicle for 8hrs and then go home and sit in the house the rest of the time. It's like self imposed house arrest but not seen in the same light.

  • Secret

    @ Bird

    I do believe they shouldnt have killed him because he could have face the families of those that was killed during the 9/11 attacks. Death is an easy way out to me. Killing him might be temporary closure but its not going to bring your family members back. Let the families have their day in court with him and let them expressed their anguish.

  • Terri B

    A house like that in the Mid-East probably was not unusual. And O wasn't the only one living there, so it wasn't like no one was coming and going, it's just that O wasn't.

  • Terri B

    It was said the President gave them orders to capture him dead or alive. I prefer alive so that he can suffer and not get a quick death. But at the same time, you got to look at who you're dealing with, and when you're in a gunfight you're only thinking about saving your own life.

  • AWESOME ARSENAL

    The only way I would feel any better about facing my family's killer would be to be able to kill him/her myself without reprocussions. I don't see what being able to yell at the person would do. :shrug: What if when you came to voice your opinion they were totally unaffected and laughed in your face?

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Birdshu Bird

    My thought was that they were not going out at regular intervals like they had jobs, but I can see how their going out at all would make it seem normal. But the house still didn't fit in the neighborhood as far as I could see. That barb wire looked wierd to me.

    Secret, I wouldn't have minded if he went to prison for life as long as he sat in solitary. Under no circumstances would I want him mingling with America's most downtrodden group. He would reek havoc up in there.

  • Terri B

    I don't think no one ever said it was a mansion, they just said it was a million dollar compound, and I've watched House Hunters enough to know that all million dollar homes are not manision, so are far from it.

    I have mad respect for our Commander in Chief and my fellow brothers and sisters of the armed forces. I have no doubt in my mind that he is dead and I do not need any "proof". As for his neighbors not know he was there I can totally buy that too. I once lived in the same apartment complex for three years and couldn't tell you what my neighbors even looked like. Guess we were on different schedules but we never crossed paths so it could happen...

    Had Bin Laden been captured and brought back on American soil, that in of itself would have been cause to try and get him released by any means possible. I can only imagine the security that would have been neeeded, where would they hold him, who would cleared to stand watch, what would be the cost to an already strained American economy. I am not an advocate for killing people but in this case how do you prosecute a man for atrocities against mankind in several countries?

    As I listen to all the information coming out about this case all I can say is they got him...it is a bittersweet victory in that the man who killed 3000 innocent Americans and countless others is now dead. It does not bring any of those killed on 9-11 back and it could be the catalyst for more attacks on America. War is a never ending institution....

    200k jobs added last month, yet 11 million people are still looking for jobs. Recovery? Oh okay.

    With all these "threats" coming out from the boogeymen of the middle east I'm just hoping martial saw doesn't ensue. They were talking about beefing up security in some (of the most unnecessary) places.
