DNA Evidence Proves Osama Bin Laden is Dead; Plus Video Footage



God Bless our brave Navy Seals who carried out this dangerous mission.  This is an outstanding accomplishment. I hope this brings some sense of justice and closure to those who lost loved ones on 9/11. 

From Haaretz:


"he officials did not immediately say where or how the testing was done but the test explains why Obama was confident to announce to the world on Sunday night that the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001 had been killed in a U.S. helicopter raid on a mansion near the Pakistani capital Islamabad.
The initial DNA results show a "very confident match" to bin Laden, giving "high confirmation" that it was bin Laden killed in the raid in Pakistan, one of the officials said.
In addition to the DNA testing, the U.S. also used facial recognition techniques to help identify him, a U.S. official said after the operation.
Senior U.S. administration officials said the body would be handled according to Islamic practice and tradition.
That practice calls for the body to be buried within 24 hours, the official said. Finding a country willing to accept the remains of the world's most wanted terrorist would have been difficult, the official said. So the U.S. decided to bury him at sea."
From Mirror

DNA evidence taken from the body of Osama bin Laden proves he is dead, according to the US government.

Two Barack Obama adminitration officials say they can say with 99.9% confidence that they got their man.
The officials did not say where or how the testing was done but the test explains why President Barack Obama was confident to announce the death to the world last night.
Here is a video of the firefight that killed Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan. 
It was 24 Navy Seals who took down Usama Bin Laden in northern Pakistan. This is absolutely amazing!

I'm confused in the video, whose armoured vehicle was that?

Teresa said...

Born Again,

I'm confused too but I think it was a U.S. vehicle.

Fuzzy Slippers said...

I don't get the DNA thing. The only way to use that is to have his DNA sample, do we? I guess we must, but it's weird.

The Conservative Lady said...

I wouldn't give this video much credence because the photo at the end is a fake. I found out about the photo the hard way. I posted before I verified it and then I had to pull it.

Teresa said...

Fuzzy,

I'm not clear on the DNA thing either. Did Osama have dental records? How did we get his DNA to compare whether this is Osama or not? I'm still a bit skeptical about this huge catch. Maybe, they had someone identify Osama in Pakistan?

Teresa said...

TCL,

Your right, the whole video could very well be a fake. I'll have to do some research and pull it if I find out that it is a fake.

Teresa said...

TCL,

I am not sure why this happened but I had trouble leaving a comment at your site. I don't have trouble over at KOOK's blog which also has intense debate so I'm not sure what's going on. Whether I need to change something on my computer or not or it's something else. I'll stop back and try to leave a comment later.

GO TEAM USA!

stopsign said...

Teresa, I'm still skeptical too.
I'm hoping that he is really dead.

Leticia said...

I am just thrilled that monster is finally dead.

Hooyah!

tennessee jed said...

ladies ladies, why the skepticism?

just cause there aren't photos or videos or really any evidence being release to the public... does that mean we should not just trust our government at their word?

why, what shape would we be in if EVERYONE just started questioning what the government said without offering any evidence?

Teresa said...

Tennessee Jed,

Please enlighten us as to why we should trust our government and this government in particular, the one that has been the least transparent in history?

Sorry Jed conservatives aren't robots like liberals are who follow Obama and progressives blindly without questioning. We think for ourselves and make sure we are getting the whole story, the truth and that the wool isn't being pulled over our eyes by our government. Please do show some evidence as to why we should trust the Obama WH.

I heard they had a sample of his sisters brain and blood.She died of cancer in Boston.I hope he is suffering the torment he richly deserves.

MK said...

Hope the celebrations are still going on over there, i have no doubt he's dead, the president wouldn't have come out declaring it so if there was any room for error.

One thing i wanted to note, for all the bluster from the muslim world about injustice, superiority, bravery and their willingness to die, it was supposedly inferior infidel Americans who reached into their heartland and killed one of their heroes who really was just a sniveling coward hiding behind his wife till the very end. I'm sure the gutless rat would have grabbed a small girl if there was one nearby. I spit on his cowardice and throw my old shoes at his carcass.

I'm just ecstatic that this scumbag was brought to justice. That such an audacious operation was conducted successfully is testament to the lethality of your armed forces. American warriors shot this cowardly vermin and once again did the world another favor. Thank you America.

Malcolm said...

I'm not sure who Tennessee Jed is, but I think he's being sarcastic when saying we should trust our government without question. At least I hope he is because we should question the government, regardless of which political party occupies the White House.

"Sorry Jed conservatives aren't robots like liberals are who follow Obama and progressives blindly without questioning. We think for ourselves and make sure we are getting the whole story, the truth and that the wool isn't being pulled over our eyes by our government."

You keep that comedy coming Teresa! :-)

Matt said...

The world is a better place now.

As for questioning the government, all of us should ALWAYS question the government. That much power is waiting to be abused, no matter who is in office.

The Conservative Lady said...

Please go back and try to leave a comment again. It seems to be working OK. I was playing around a little with it earlier, so maybe you got caught up in that. You made comments before and it worked OK, so I can't imagine what's wrong now. If you have problems again, let me know (my e-mail address is on my blog profile). Thanks.

Teresa said...

TCL,

Heading to work now but I'll be by later to comment.

Amazing, God bless those Navy Seals, they fear no one and nothing.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Face to face killing of Bin Laden is much better for conformation purposes. ... GO NAVY!

cube said...

Customarily, they have fingerprints, dental records, and either DNA from the person being identified or from a family member.

I hope they took advantage of all the above techniques, took a plethora of photos, and conducted a complete autopsy. The more documentation we present to the world, the better.

I also hope they wrapped him in bacon before feeding him to the fishes.

Teresa, I hate to throw cold water on the festivities, but there are a number of things that don't add up in all of this.

First of all it is reported that there were no body guards around. So who are the Navy Seals shooting at?

Secondly, It has now come out that Bin Laden was not armed, so why didn't Obama order that Osama be shot on sight instead of taking him alive for forced interrogation? and then why did they feel it was necessary to get rid of the body so fast? Too many things don't add up.

How did they get the DNA results so fast when it normally takes a couple of weeks?

thatmrgguy said...

I think the video was some kind of stock footage or something. ST six went in by helo and would extract in the same manner. They had extra helos just in case of mechanical failure.

Or the armored vehicle could have been a Pakistani military vehicle with their troops firing on the Seal team? Just a guess on my part.

God bless our SEALS!!!

I doubt the videos validity too. Especially when one sees anti-aircraft fire in the sky.....

Helicopters can easily fly underneath most radars. So, I doubt the Paki's ever saw them coming.

First of all it is reported that there were no body guards around. So who are the Navy Seals shooting at?

I would assume that those armed within the compound. Most pictures and videos we've seen of OBL always had an AK at his side.

Secondly, It has now come out that Bin Laden was not armed, so why didn't Obama order that Osama be shot on sight instead of taking him alive for forced interrogation?

Within the confines of any firefight, people get killed that may have not supposed to have been killed. It's war....

How did they get the DNA results so fast when it normally takes a couple of weeks?

I most cases it does take weeks. The reason? Most labs are overburdened with many case loads. I think OBL's blood work would have been put in the front of the line and not sit in refrigerator someplace.

The video of the shoot out that killed him is now private LMAOOO!!!!
