Icing on the cake was no US military injured during the firefight.

Lets remember the board rules and keep the political discussions out of this very historical day.

See you in Hell, Bastard!!! They should let us all take turns throwing stuff at the body and feed it to some hungry pirahanas.

Bin laden is standing before God waiting to hear his punishment, when God gets a tap on the shoulder.
There behind him stand 343 firemen, 72 police officers, one k9 officer, 3,000 American citizens, and over 5,000 soldiers. "Don't worry God, we got this"!

The spelling of his name is disputed, though usually we see Osama bin Laden there are many variations. I'm sure it has to do with translation barriers or something.

Arabic uses a different alphabet than English, so it's a transliteration (same thing happens with chinese or japanese or russian or hebrew), and those are always weird.

Yeah I did a little research and there are tons of ways to spell it. Generally the media uses Osama bin Laden. Official government documents use Usama bin Laden or Usama bin Ladin generally. Good point about the alphabet though, makes official spelling impossible when you switch from arabic to roman characters.
