With President Obama fresh off the press conference podium, a jointUSA Today/Gallup poll asked the American public how they feel about the U.S. mission to kill elusive Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Do they approve of it? Who do they think most deserves credit?

— GOOD

The Bulletproof Dog That Stormed Bin Laden’s Lair 

Last year, the military spent $86,000 on four tactical vests to  outfit Navy Seal dogs. The SEALs hired Winnipeg, Canada-based contractor  K9 Storm to gear up their four-legged, canine partners, which it has used in battle since World War I.  K9 Storm’s flagship product is the $20,000-$30,000 Intruder, an  upgradeable version of their doggie armor (you can check out the full catalogue here). The tactical body armor is wired with a collapsible video arm, two-way audio, and other attachable gadgets.

Tweets per second during Bin Laden announcement

As I listened to my young neighbors run around the parking lot  chanting, “U-S-A! U-S-A!” I glanced at my Twitter feed, and it showed a  burst of similar sentiment. On the announcement of Osama Bin Laden’s  death, Twitter recorded the highest sustained rate of tweets ever, at an average of 3,000 per second. The above shows the progression from 9:30pm to 12:30am EST.
