The Death of Osama Bin Laden: A Playlist Rock Opera

I logged onto Facebook last night to see the glorious words "Osama is dead!" The news spread at lightspeed across the globe and American took to the streets to celebrate. The Internet exploded with articles and comments, some by people who thought it sad we would celebrate death. I can see their point, and I reflected on it a bit. Then I thought about the innocent people who chose to jump from the World Trade Center on 9/11 instead of being burned alive and came to the conclusion that I too will celebrate the killing of Osama Bin Laden. I'm good with it. To mark the historic event I put together this 14 song soundtrack that tells the story of the operation, now all I need is a talented stage producer. Heartfelt thanks to our fine men and women who serve in the CIA and in our military, especially our bad-ass Navy Seals.
