Talk about an amazing anniversary coincidence from toptenz.net:
May 1, 2003- Mission Accomplished?
|May 1, 2003-George W. Bush landed on the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln and gave a speech announcing the end of major combat operations in Iraq. Visible in the background was a banner stating “Mission Accomplished.”|
May 1, 2011- Mission Accomplished!
|May 1, 2011, exactly eight years after the speech, President Barack Obama announced |
that U.S. Navy SEALs had killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in Pakistan.
