"Justice Has Been Done"


"Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda, and a terrorist who’s responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women, and children...

Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation... A small team of Americans carried out the operation with extraordinary courage and capability. No Americans were harmed. They took care to avoid civilian casualties. After a firefight, they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body...

Americans understand the costs of war. Yet as a country, we will never tolerate our security being threatened, nor stand idly by when our people have been killed. We will be relentless in defense of our citizens and our friends and allies. We will be true to the values that make us who we are. And on nights like this one, we can say to those families who have lost loved ones to al Qaeda’s terror: Justice has been done."


-- President Barack Obama, May 1st, 2011

Translation: "Yeah, sorry I couldn't show you fuckers my birth certificate sooner. You know how it is: being a bad-ass, making sure bin Laden gets killed."

So this 2012 presidential election thing... We can probably just cancel that, right?

Shortly after announcing the death of Osama Bin Laden to the world late last night, President Obama capped off the weekend with a late-night, closed-door conference with First Lady Michelle Obama. Sources say that this 'Bedroom Summit' resulted in great satisfaction for all parties involved and was a fitting conclusion to what has been the greatest weekend Obama has had ever.

Sources have now confirmed that the First Lady did in fact 'back it up and drop it' on the night in question, after which Mr. Obama proceeded to hit it 'presidential style', a classified sex position that was invented by John F. Kennedy.
