Facebook world responds to the Bin Laden hit

Barack Obama has a profile page on Facebook. He (or of course, his team) has not posted anything about Bin Laden - so Facebook people commented on the most recent post available at the time of the hit:

Barack Obama
I refuse to cut investments like clean energy that will help America grow our economy and create good-paying jobs, make America more secure, and help clean up our planet in the process.

Weekly Address: Ending Taxpayer Subsidies for Oil Companies
As oil and gas companies make tens of billions in profits and the government scours the budget for savings, President Obama calls on Congress to stop handing them $4 billion annually in taxpayer subsidies.

14,196 people had posted comments by 8PM Tuesday night and while the majority were congratulatory, not all were, by any means - and it seems that there are plenty of Al Quaida sympathizers with Facebook accounts.

I gave up trying to scroll to the comments posted right after the news was announced - I only managed to scroll up to 4,305 before I got tired of it. So these comments are completely randomly selected - interesting cross-section:

Mr. President, we have a well known law, "The Right of Information Law." Please, let us see the pictures of Bin Laden's dead body just like he showed how he murdered our Americans comrades on World Wide TV. It is hard to believe without laying eyes on the fact.

Osama Bin Laden death is a great victory. Surely, it should be end to fundamentalism. I have faced many problems in my life due to extremism. I co-operated with many forces in order to prevent terrorism around the world despite my poverty. I hope friends will be rewarded.

‎@Lucas. If Americans didn't kill Osama, don't you think Al Queda would be disputing this claim instead of mourning the loss of their fearless leader? Grow up... OBAMA 2012!!!

Please try to balance the increase of goods and services to the lack of payroll increases! Regulation of pricing is needed! Most businesses cannot raise their rates due to demand! When gas companies state record earnings while consumers are strapped there is a huge gross imbalance!

‎@Belinda Walters: Although I agree with you, I read that showing picture of body would be like gloating, showing a "trophy" which could cause more anger against the United States. I guess all is "fair in love and war".

All "El Quaida" leaders died several tiimes, they are like cats witn nine lives. Fake leaders from a fake terrorist organization. 911 was a nuclear event done by jews and collaborating christians. No muslim was involved.

Those who keep pointing out that Obama did in 2 years what Bush couldn't do in 7 need to be reminded - Bush not only didn't get Bin Laden, the attack HAPPENED ON BUSH'S WATCH!

Who could ever forget The Pet Goat?
