    That Mullah Omar was killed is a rumor, that Twitter users cannot correctly read the date, is a fact

  • Jethro_Troll

    That’s great news if it’s true. God bless our troops!

  • Summer E. Ball

    I wish it was true, but suspect it is another rumor.

    Obama gets another one…. Yeah he’s weak

    • TugboatPhil

      Yes. And yes.

    • ZoriahShepard

      Riiiight. He deserves ALL the credit.

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      I’ll give him credit where it’s due. Now, would you like to talk about a wave of anti-Western riots across the Middle East, 4 dead diplomats, at least 6 embassies assaulted, including at least 2 destroyed or occupied, and Marine Corps security not even carrying ammo on the 9/11 anniversary?

    The 48 hour rule is in effect for this one, folks…

    Brad Thor propagated this last year…..not until I see a body

    Does anything think Obama would keep it a secret if Omar was dead? He’d be taking credit for it all over the place, even if the dude had died from a bee sting.

  • Terry

    If Omar was really dead, Obama would be taking credit all over the place, even if dude died from a bee sting.

      maybe it was a ‘drone’ bee


    Is it not a fact that the MUSLIMS hate OBAME because he has been killing A LOT of them and family members (Children too) with drone strikes?
    And the ENDLESS bragging about Killing OSAMA, is it no wonder they are after Americans?
    Have you seen all the chanting and signs and writing on the buildings, and on 911?
    IT IS ALL OVER THE NEWS, and they ignore it on the news????
    How come no one mentions this except a few smart “contributers” that come on every once in a while..
    The movie trailer thing is a RUSE and they are playing very hard CYA (cover your Azz).
