One of my homeschool parents texted me last night at 10:51 to give me the news.
Typically, when I get a text message, I just roll over and go back to sleep. I didn't last night, of course.
I booted up the computer, started the coffee pot, and remained awake, watching television and getting the stories on the web, until midnight.
Bin Laden, age 54, has been buried at sea at an unspecified location.
According to Tammy Swofford, "burial at sea according to Islamic tradition" is strange terminology.
As Alligator said in his comment to the post below:
Bin Laden was just one head of the Hydra. Many more heads have to be cut off before the monster is dead.Furthermore, also according to Tammy Swofford:
Naturally, the Taliban claims Osama is still alive. Unless they can produce a video with Osama holding a NYT announcing his death.....Al Qaeda's jihad continues. No doubt, they are planning their revenge right now.
