The Rock knew Osama Bin Laden was dead before you did

By Sean O’Connell President Barack Obama broke into televised programming Sunday evening to announce to the nation and the world that the United States had captured and killed Osama Bin Laden, the terrorist leader of Al Qaeda, following a near-10-year search. Later, we learned that Bin Laden had been buried at sea, preventing terrorist followers from having a shrine to their fallen leader.

But one American didn’t need to be told all of this. He already knew.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson reportedly has friends in high places. While the “Fast Five” star should have been celebrating his film’s record-breaking weekend, Rock instead was posting tell-all tweets on his Twitter feed (courtesy of BadAssDigest).

“Just got word that will shock the world – Land of the free…home of the brave DAMN PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!” The Rock tweeted around 10 p.m. ET, before anything had been confirmed by the media or President Obama.

He followed up with, “FINALLY….”

And, “…couldn’t have asked for a better birthday present.”

I have no idea how Rock found out so early. But part of me’s glad he did. We want Rock on that wall. We need him on that wall. So to Rock, and all of the men and women in uniform who fight for our freedom every day, I’ll just say thank you, and hurry home.
