Breaking news! Usama bin Laden is dead!

Only, he has been dead for one year today.

So why is it BREAKING NEWS?

All the mainstream news networks today are having special reports on this day. They are reporting that President Obama is making a "surprise visit" to commemorate this day and to announce that a new agreement has been reached with Afghan leaders about what happens after 2014, when US combat troops leave. That announcement will be on live TV tonight at 7:30 pm.

And it will state that we will actually stay in the country longer. Even though we've already been there 10 years.

  1. While I sympathize with wanting to get our troops out of there as soon as possible, I feel that this is a huge step to finally putting the War on Terror behind us. 2014 is only two years away, granted we would have been there thirteen years, but certainly not as a result of this President. I feel President Obama would not steer us in a direction unless we absolutely had to go there, especially when referencing war. We are out of Iraq, Osama bin Laden is dead, the Arab Spring is coming to a close, and hostilities in Afghanistan are finally getting to the point to where the Afghan security forces can resume defending their own country.

    A lot of this just boils down to one thing: it would be incredibly irresponsible to bomb a country and then leave it in utter chaos. President Obama did not bomb them, but he did inherit that decision, now we all have the responsibility to make sure that we are doing all we can to make our prior transgressions set right. If that means waiting two more years, so be it.
