It's Official

The burden of proof that Osama Bin Laden is dead is no longer on the Obama administration or Osama himself. Al Qaeda has announced that their leader has fallen

"Sheikh Osama didn't build an organization that will vanish with his death or fades away with his departure," according to the statement, which CNN could not independently authenticate.

The statement, which congratulates the "Islamic Nation on the martyrdom of their devoted son Osama," repeated themes and threats made over the years in prior al Qaeda statements.

Well, I guess that's it then. What's next?
