Default Obama to speak at 10:45 EST

CNN.com sez "President Obama is expected to make a statement tentatively at 10:30 p.m., the White House said." C-SPAN is saying 10:4510:50 now.

Late timing makes me suspect escalation of war #3. Hooray.

http://www.c-span.org/Live-Video/C-SPAN/

ETA: NYT says White House says bin Laden is dead. Cue birthers.

If this is true and they are announcing like this, I suspect that (1) bin Laden was alive until very recently, and (2) there is a body to show off.

That's what CNN and MSNBC are saying. They have the head of Alfredo Garcia.

On MSNBC (on Raw Story) they are metaphorically withdrawing the troops already...

And the conspiracy nutbag on my Facebook friends list is already on it. :rolleyes:
" In a cheap attempt to boost his popularity, President Obama will announce tonight that Osama Bin Laden is dead."

BBC said the same thing, and specified drone, but that seems weird to me because Islamabad is pretty far from the tribal areas. They also said "mansion outside of Islamabad" which sounds an awful lot like "more than a few people knew he was there."

I find it very unlikely that there is a heavy drone presence in the burbs of Islamabad.

Is today the 8th anniversary of Bush's "Mission Accomplished" speech?

They are talking about visual confirmation. Doesn't sound like a drone.

The crowds outside the White House are a little on the disturbing side.

Seems like a set-up. I live here, crowds don't gather in front of the White House on Sunday night.

They are reporting a drone and they are reporting that we have the body.

Like the drone attacked, and then troops went in to examine the bodies??

I'll believe it's official when VP Biden says, in all seriousness, "I was wrong before, Mr. President. This is a big fucking deal."

I resent that he thinks we have to relive 9/11 to appreciate the magnitude of this news.
