– In a truly odd coincidence Osama Bin Laden and Adolph Hitler apparently died on the same day, well, at least the announcements of their deaths occurred on the same day.
Sixty-six years ago it was announced on the evening of May 1, 1945 that Hitler killed himself in his bunker in Berlin.
On Sunday night in the USA it was announced that Osama Bin Laden was killed in a firefight with U.S. forces.
Keep in mind, the timing of these death announcements are all in U.S. Eastern Standard Time.
Osama Bin Laden and Adolf Hitler share a towering reputation for evil – and also an anniversary.
Both were declared dead on May 1.
Late on May 1, 1945 – about as late as President Obama’s TV announcement Sunday – German radio announced that Hitler had fallen “fighting to the last breath against Bolshevism and for Germany.”
He had actually committed suicide the day before.
In some cultures May 1 is the official beginning of summer. In many places, May Day is also Labor Day, a celebration of the working man.
May 1 is also the anniversary of President Bush’s ill-conceived 2003 Mission Accomplished speech, prematurely announcing an end to combat in Iraq.
Obama, who might have used the words in his TV address, did not.
