U.S. cable news is reporting that Osama bin Laden's body has been recovered by U.S. forces. Subsequent sources claim he was killed by actionable U.S. intelligence with a "U.S. asset," either a drone or a Special Forces/CIA team. Additional reports claim he was killed outside a mansion in Islamabad, Pakistan, suggesting a land raid with U.S. and/or Pakistani forces. New reports are ruling out Pakistani knowledge or participation.
If true this event couldn't have happened at a stranger time in the Middle East. President Barack Obama allegedly tried to announce the news himself before the White House sprung a leak. CNN is already spinning his death out of control. Propaganda from all sides will be at maximum output.
Obama is due to address the world shortly. Updates to follow.
