Today marks the five year anniversary of the military operation that led to terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden’s death. To honor the occasion, the Central Intelligence Agency spent the day “live-tweeting” the raid that took place on May 1, 2011.
“I really want for you to be my wife in paradise,” a man once wrote to his beloved. Who was this Casanova? None other than Osama bin Laden, a name synonymous with evil. But can his words land you a date on Tinder?
When you become romantically interested in a guy you just met what's the first thing you do? Google him. Find him on Facebook. You gather intel (a series of photos in which he's seemingly very familiar with a pretty young woman?) which you then analyze (oh, OK, she's just his sister) to create a composite of his life…
Here's the first look at Oscar winning director Kathryn Bigelow's newest venture Zero Dark Thirty, a film dramatizing the Navy SEAL Team 6's hunt for Osama bin Laden. The trailer provides as much insight as an "On the next Mad Men" trailer, but knowing Bigelow and the skills she demonstrated directing The Hurt Locker
Kathryn Bigelow is so fucking cool. Not only did she direct Point Break ("Little hand says it's time to rock and roll") and win an Oscar for The Hurt Locker, she's now working on a film about the U.S. military's successful hunt for Osama bin Laden.
Hillary Clinton does pretty much everything perfectly, so it probably shouldn't come as a surprise that she's good at keeping secrets. Yet Bill Clinton revealed yesterday on The Ellen Degeneres Show that Hillary managed to keep the planned raid on Osama Bin Laden's compound on complete and total lockdown from him:
Osama Bin Laden's three former wives and two daughters have been under house arrest since March 3rd for living in Pakistan illegally, and they'll remain there for 15 more days before being deported, Pakistani officials announced today. Analysts told the Guardian that Pakistan may have sought a longer prison sentence…
Yes, you read that right. U.S. officials found an "extensive" pornographic video collection at the compound. Holy, indeed.
Reports of Osama Bin Laden's death consistently mentioned a daughter, aged 12 or 13, who may have watched him die. What do we know about this girl, her life, and her future?
"She must be pious, dutiful, young [preferably aged 16-18], well mannered, from a decent family, but above all patient. She will have to endure my exceptional circumstances." Exceptional circumstances, in this case, meant living in seclusion with the world's most wanted terrorist.
It seems like everyone has something to say about the death of Osama bin Laden. As this new "Kids React" video from the Fine Brothers shows, many children—some of whom weren't even born before 9/11—harbor strong feelings about the life and death of the former al Qaeda leader, too. And while some of the kids are…
Pakistani officials say they've questioned Osama bin Laden's wife, who survived the raid on their compound but was shot in the leg. Two other bin Laden wives are also in Pakistani custody after the recent discovery that they were in the compound too.
"I am somewhat sheepishly concerned that it was my preventing one of my early spring allergic coughs," she said. "So, it may have no great meaning whatsoever."
This morning, in a rare, light-hearted political moment for The View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck read off a joke-y children's poem she wrote as a way to explain Osama Bin Laden's death. Granted, using a dead person to reveal your playful side is a little weird, but whatever.
Yesterday, as tidbits about the death of Osama bin Laden trickled out, one was met with extra disdain: The tale that bin Laden has used one of his wives as a human shield. Fortunately or unfortunately, it's not true.
Following lots of fashion people on Twitter, as I do for this job, has its unexpected moments. When unforeseen, world-changing, big deal, really, actual news-news breaks, funny, strange, and strangely affecting things happen. Last night, for example, fashion writer Derek Blasberg wanted most to talk about where he was…
The Oscar-winning director and her Hurt Locker collaborator Mark Boal had already been meeting with actors for a movie about the failed 2001 attempt to kill Osama Bin Laden. Its future is unclear as they re-evaluate the project.
Fox News's misspelled headline — "Obama Bin Laden Dead" — has already become internet-infamous. But they weren't the only ones to make this mistake — below, a roundup of Obama-for-Osama typos.
When NBC first scrolled an ominous notice across the bottom of the screen that President Obama would be making "an important statement shortly" during the last half hour of Celebrity Apprentice, for a split second it almost seemed like delicious payback on the part of the president—like it was his way of reminding…
