Sources say Osama Bin Laden is Dead

Osama bin Laden is dead, multiple sources confirm to Fox News.

President Obama is expected to deliver a statement from the White House Sunday night to discuss the major development.

Sources said bin Laden was killed by a U.S. bomb a week ago. The U.S. had been waiting for the results of a DNA test to confirm his identity.

The announcement comes nearly a decade after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks which started a tireless hunt for the terrorist mastermind and Al Qaeda leader.

CAJ note: On Facebook FoxBusiness’ Eric Bolling posted, “This is BIG news. Now we wait and see how Radical Islamics react.”

Update: The Blaze blogs some details from the President’s address to the nation.

President Bush releases statement: “This momentous achievement marks a victory for America… Tonight America has sent an unmistakable message. No matter how long it takes, judgment will be done.” In addition, Bush congratulated Obama and America’s military, saying they have “our everlasting gratitude.”

Obama reportedly phoned Bush earlier this evening to personally deliver the news.

Update 2: Security at U.S. Military bases has been heightened tonight according to Jacksonville Daily News.

Jim Hoft at GatewayPundit has the first photo of the dead Bin Laden and writes, Osama Bin Laden was killed in Abbottabad the home of the Pakistan military academy.

We should have made a screenshot of the image, but Jim Hoft never removes material from his site. Curious to us, but who knows where the pressure is coming from. Our apologies to our readers.

Update 5: Freedom’s Lighthouse has the photo. And, from Pat Dollard, The Guy Who Liveblogged the Osama Raid Without Knowing It:

Without knowing what he was doing, Sohaib Athar, a.k.a. @ReallyVirtual, has more or less just live-tweeted the raid in which terrorist Osama bin Laden was killed Sunday.

The IT consultant resides in Abbottabad, the town where bin Laden was found and killed by a U.S. military operation.

Athar first posted about events surrounding the raid 10 hours before the publication of this article, writing, “Helicopter hovering above Abbottabad at 1AM (is a rare event).” He didn’t realize that he’d been tweeting about a top-secret attempt to kill an internationally wanted terrorist until nine hours later…
