So did US drones kill Usama Bin Laden's son Saad? Words like probably and likely are being used to address the question. Why? Intelligence sources close to the situation say when people are killed in missile strikes, the only way to identify them is to test the DNA at the scene. Problem is in some countries for a number of reasons. DNA testing is not allowed. So, without a body, there's no way to say for sure that he was killed or even there.

As soon as the Twittersphere began spreading the news, impromptu festivals popped up in public venues throughout the country -- including the president's back yard -- to celebrate the end of the terrorist's reign.
