Off-Topic: Osama Bin Laden CONFIRMED DEAD

Yeah, it ain't football. . .it's way, way bigger than football.

Osama Bin Laden, the mastermind behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States, has been killed, according to numerous sources on television, radio, and the internet.

The United States has been in pursuit of Bin Laden over the course of the past decade, and they have finally gotten their man.

Since two members of our staff here have supported operations in the Middle East in the post-9/11 military (Ted and myself), and I know that we have many other veterans that read our site on a daily basis and contribute to it, it's time to give some serious props to the men and women of the United States military and all of the coalition forces around the world that have cooperated to make this possible. It's not a be-all or an end-all to terrorism or anything like that, but it's still a pretty significant event.

Feel free to talk about this in the comments, but try to keep it as non-political as possible. It doesn't matter what side of the aisle you're on or what your political beliefs are. . .this is a momentous day in American history.
