Here is the URL for ABC's live feed.

DNA evidence has confirmed the identity of UBL.

Earlier today, Fareed Zakaria examined the instability in the Middle East and an expert said that Saudi Arabia, with its oil production, is still stable for now; but if it did not move toward constitutional monarchy (at least) within the next sixth months, there will be real trouble with Saudi oil production.

CNN says the President will address the nation shortly.


Update/Correction (May 7, 2010):

The Embassy of Pakistan is in the "Embassy Row" area of Washington DC (near Van Ness St), with this Wikipedia image link  (Creative Commons).

The Embassy website (for The Islamic Republic of Pakistan) is this.

In January 2008, I had visited the Woodrow Wilson House near Dupont Circle and snapped another picture in the area which, according to signeage, appeared to have a connection to Pakistan.

I will revisit both addresses or places soon, and track down what this was (at least when I reported it in 2008) and update and report the correct information on all properties previously shown in this blog.

Prez Obama announced that Osama Bin Laden is dead now but no proof has been shown. So, are you sure that Osama Bin Laden is dead now?I don't believe a word of what he says as this is all a made up story.He is just trying to play a quick one on Americans and the world at large.His administration has failed American as we all know.The economy is getting worse as each day passes by and all he thinks about is the death of Osama Bin Laden!!I think he is just trying to use this as an achievement to influence the lovely people of America to vote for him in his second term in Office.Prez Obama is a good manipulator and that is not what Americans seek in a President.He wants the America and the whole world at large to see him as hero who has ended al-Qa'ida and terrorism as a whole but the truth is,he has failed Americans and the world as a whole.
Can Prez Obama and his administration show some solid proof that really Osama Bin Laden is dead now? Because, that's pretty easy to do when really he's dead. We don't want just to believe a mere statement that Bin Laden is already dead thinking of all the many lives that were taken because of him. No solid proofs means Bin Laden is still alive and Americans should be very careful as he would love to do something worse for his come back !!!!

At the risk of sounding flippant, I am somehow reminded of the Sirius XM song from Buble, "Hollywood Is Dead".
