Glenn Beck Program May 2, 2011

Osama Bin Laden and the Raid

  • Osama Bin Laden is dead.
  • The celebrations in here outside the White House, Times Square and at the site of the World Trade Center reminded Glenn of the Palestinians’ celebrations and handing out of candy after the slaughter of an Israeli family.
  • The White House is debating on whether to show a picture of Bin Laden’s body.
  • Hitler’s death was also announced on May 2nd.
  • The focus now should be on our military that accomplished this.
  • Thank you U.S. military.
  • Interrogation uncovered the name of an Osama Bin Laden courier.
    • 2007: The identity of the courier was confirmed.
    • 2009: Investigators pinpoint areas where he could be living.
    • 2010: Exact resident of the courier located.
    • 2011: US officials say there is enough intelligence.
  • Thank you Mr. President.
  • Glenn then discussed the raid…
    • One of the helicopters had a problem…

“The assault team went ahead and raided the compound, even though they didn’t know if they would have a ride home…”

  • God bless the U.S. military.
  • One person used one of Bin Laden’s wives as a shield.  Both were killed.
  • No US military personnel were killed or seriously wounded.
  • They took the body and left.
  • We buried Bin Laden at sea, per Muslim tradition.  Why did we bury him as a Muslim?  He is a murderer.
  • Al Queda Attacks
    • 1993 – World Trade Center bombing.
    • 1996 – Bombing of the Khobar Towers.
    • 1998 – Bombings of US embassies in Africa.
    • 2000 – USS Cole
    • 2001 – 9/11
    • 2002 – Attack on the US consulate in Pakistan.
    • 2002 – Bali nightclub bombing.
    • 2002 – Attacks in Kenya.
  • A blogger was the first to announce the raid.
  • Glenn showed an old video of Candidate Obama saying he would use jets in Pakistan if necessary to get Bin Laden.
  • The Muslim Brotherhood said about Bin Laden’s death…

“With Bin Laden’s death, one of the reasons for which violence has been practiced in the world has been removed… It is time for Obama to pull out of Afghanistan and Iraq and end the occupation of the US and Western forces around the world that have for so long harmed Muslim countries.”

  • Bin Laden was living 1,000 yards next to Pakistan’s West Point.
  • Glenn interviewed Michael Scheuer on his radio program. 
    • Scheuer was the former CIA Bin Laden Unit Chief. 
    • Michael said Pakistan’s interests are not ours and we can’t depend on them to do our dirty work.
  • Glenn picked up the red phone and said that he has plugged it in for today only in case the President calls.  For today only, Glenn will say nice things.
  • In Pakistan today, an anti-US, pro Bin Laden demonstration was held despite them supposedly being our allies.

What’s Next?

  • Bin Laden was more than a guy.
  • He was an idea.
  • Killing him does not kill the idea.


  • Three bombs killed one of Qaddafi’s sons and three grandchildren.
  • Qaddafi is outraged at Italy’s colonization attempts.
  • Saudi Arabia is angry about the bombing of Qaddafi’s family as it sent a message to all rebels that to be successful, they need to kill the leader.
  • Qaddafi has major cash reserves to fund terrorist operations all over the world.
  • Saudi Arabia was so angry about the way the administration treated Mubarak, they contacted China and Russia to let them know they are ready to do more with them.
  • Russians are now saying we are lying about what we are doing in Libya.
  • Russian and Iranian media are wondering if the US is headed for war with China.
  • The problems in the Middle East are not over.  Glenn feels that they are just starting to heat up.


  • Glenn said he had received many requests to help tornado victims in the South or fire victims in Texas.  Glenn has a page on his web site, .  There, they have listed a number of charity organizations that they feel are pretty good.
  • In spite of all the devastation, they have been having a problem keeping up with people wanting to volunteer to help.
