Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. At 10:47 eastern US time they broke into TV to sat that President Obama in going on the air soon, all channels, to announce that OBL is dead and body is in US hands.

    I wall add more when POTUS speaks
     
  2. Anything less than his bearded, stump-dripping head on a pike, and Obama will be accused of being soft on communism, sorry, the other one, islamism, that's the badger.

    Good news if true.

    'Good news if true.'

    you think? I can only see it winding up the fanatic fringe even more. as if they werent wound up enough to begin with.
     
  4. That's a big call, they seem to think the body has been with the US for a week whilst they DNA test it.
     
  5. Better than captured alive. Can you imagine the number of hostages taken to try to get him back. Plus if he went to Gitmo all the people saying we were violating his human rights.

  6. As of 04:09 this morning the FBI Most Wanted still doesn't recognise him as being wanted for 9/11

    FBI — Most Wanted Terrorists

    Wonder what'll happen next.. beyond Obama running round like a headless chicken wondering how the **** they can justify further incursions into Pakistan if they've actually bagged Santa. Statement was scheduled for 10:30.. 42 minutes later and the White House still doesn't know what to say?
     
  7. He's been living in a mansion just outside Islamabad according to Fox News.

  9. Just watching it on Sky now, seem to be hinting at CIA's SAD being the ones who got him but again all very unconfirmed.

    Al-Qaeda leader Bin Laden 'dead'

    Bin Laden is top of the US most wanted list

    Al-Qaeda founder and leader Osama Bin Laden is dead, according to US officials.

    The US is in possession of Bin Laden's body, the reports say. President Barack Obama is due to make a statement shortly.

    He is accused of being behind a number of atrocities, including the attacks on New York and Washington on 11 September 2001.

    The al-Qaeda leader was killed in a mansion outside Islamabad in an operation based on actionable US intelligence, CNN reported.

  12. Still he had a good run the prick managing almost ten years playing hide and seek with most of the developed world after him. Bush Jnr must be ****ing livid that Obama got him :)
