Apparently President Obama is about to give a press conference announcing that Osama Bin Laden is dead. Hopefully there isn't any retaliation against the U.S.

Can't wait to hear the details, as well as seeing how foreign policy evolves in upcoming months as a result.

I don't even know, yet, how his death came about. I just heard about it from my daughter. We are planning to turn on the newscast, in a few minutes, however.

I don't think the news people have the details...I'm hoping the President will give more details.

I won't believe it until I see the long-form death certificate.

...Just kidding! This is great news for the war on terror, but I'm also concerned about retaliation. Hopefully it won't happen.

Here's the live stream of the President's statement when it comes on: http://www.whitehouse.gov/live/president-obama-delivers-statement

Killed in a mansion outside of Islamabad. It was a long messy road to get here, but this is a big day! Good job troops!

SNORT. I'm hoping President Obama gives his statement in front of a "Mission Accomplished" banner.

I was watching Celebrity Apprentice when news broke. Hahaha!

I was pretty sure an asteroid was coming to blow up Earth.

I don't really even know how to feel right now. That's not quite right. I don't quite know how to put what I feel into words. Probably won't be able to put it into words for a while.

Nervous about potential retaliation, definitely. Doubt it'll really make a difference in our safety, in all honesty.

If Osama is really dead, Obama just got himself re-elected. Nothing can ever up that in his campaign!

There's a certain sweetness to preempting Celebrity Apprentice! Ha! "Were you going to fire a D-list celebrity? Oh, sorry ... I was busy ridding the planet of the face of global terrorism."

AGREED! We're watching NBC for that very reason! Did you see Obama's zingers about Trump at the White House Correspondents dinner? Makes it even sweeter!

My fave, directed towards Trump:

“All kidding aside obviously we all know about your credentials and breadth of experience. For example, no seriously, just recently in an episode of Celebrity Apprentice at the steak house the men’s cooking team did not impress the judges from Omaha Steaks, and there was a lot of blame to go around, but you Mr. Trump recognized that the real problem was a lack of leadership and so ultimately you didn’t blame Lil’ Jon or Meatloaf. You fired Gary Busey, and these are the decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled, sir. Well handled.”

There is that fear of retaliation, of course. But, we've been fearing another attack for the past 10 years. I'm just thankful, really, really thankful for the brave men and woman who would take this mission and see it through to competition. Bin Laden definitely needed his comeuppance.

LOL! So true! (Though admittedly, I do have a weakness for the trainwreck that is Celebrity Apprentice ... :p). Man, Nene's epic meltdown preempted by the death of Bin Laden?? LOVE it.
