Even Off-Off is not a place for politics, which I had been warned about earlier.

That said, it's hard not to want to cheer this possibility.  Nothing has been confirmed yet, however...  Yet.

Ah I see, well i'll take it down if told to, or, of course, a mod can.

Well, despite my warning, all I have to say is that I raise my glass to the brave men and women that have fought so hard and so long for this day.

You got the bastard.  And apparently you got him clean.  Good job!

I heard that Osama Bin Laden was a hologram run by the CIA!

As long as it's just discussing the news, it should be fine. Once you start delineating it around political rhetoric, then we'd probably bring the lock.

I heard it was less of a 'Shot and Killed' and closer to a 'Nuked from Orbit via Drone', so it has a segue of Shadowrun relevance....

The official word is that it was a SpecOp Wetwork deal.  Clean.

I've just re-read some coverage, and it corroborates your story.

D'oh.

So, here's a question for all:

You have:
A) A wetwork target assumed to be holed up in an unfriendly area
B) 4 helicopters with navy seals (the bang bang kind, not the 'balance ball on my nose' kind)
C) resistance could include any small arms up to and including RPG's

If this was a shadowrun (in a highly aspected background count, so magic is useless :P ), how would you do it?

You forgot the most important part:  Ability to identify the body without a shadow of a doubt by a very opinionated and propaganda-heavy OpForce.

I'd have Pup the Dog Shaman do Magical Surveillance, find the location and put a fist-sized hole in the wall, Murphy and Money put hunting rifle rounds through said weakness, then Nas would be the getaway driver with Speeder running Matrix Oversight and providing misinformation for the pursuit teams.  :P
