Column: Bin Laden's afterlife is not what he expected
HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody?
Osama bin Laden was tracked down and killed in a firefight with U.S. Navy seals at his hideout in Pakistan on Sunday. It just wasn't his day. First he gets killed here on Earth and then the next thing he knows he's being greeted in Paradise by 72 Virginians.
President Obama announced that U.S. forces killed Osama bin Laden, then he gave himself credit for analyzing intelligence, organizing the mission and giving the kill order. The play didn't quite go as the president planned. The intended target was Donald Trump.
Pakistan said Sunday they didn't know bin Laden was hiding in Abbottabad. He was in a high-security, high-walled estate in a slum neighborhood. U.S. astronauts will split the $25 million reward for noticing something fishy from the Space Station.
Osama bin Laden left behind a martyr's audiotape to be played in case he was killed. He was relieved to die. His lifelong dream was to destroy the United States but in the end, 70 million Baby Boomers proved to be just too much competition for him.
