Putting a thorn of shock and bafflement into this decidedly "good day for America," some party-foulin' mystery tagger decided to blast a local freeway wall with a seemingly pro-terrorist declaration. 

"OSAMA FOREVER!" was scribed in black spray paint this morning along the 405 Freeway in Westminster, near Springdale Street. It was accompanied by a small "RIP" and an upside-down American flag, captioned "UNAMERICAN." Thankfully, the graffiti was being removed around 9:30 a.m. by a Caltrans maintenance worker, L.A. Now reports. Authorities will investigate if more information is discovered.

The Orange County Register has more photos. 

Though like the folks at LA Weekly, we, too, are puzzled by semantics. The phrase could possibly be read as a single phrase--"RIP OSAMA FOREVER," as in "He's gone forever!" or possibly even Rest In Piss forever.     

Yeah, doubt it. More hate in OC! Grand.

Would have been better to ignore this act of vandalism rather than give the perps the publicity they desire.

But me i suspect you all. You made Ossama be and now Obama. What did Ossama do? He wanted to make justice for his people as Obama is doing now with u his people too. That is not justice but vengeance. For me these peoples remain the same and eventually the only one people in this earth. If you realy try to examin this u'll find out that is a vengeance (revenge, payback). Therefor it can't be an american people or an arabian people or an asian people or an european people or an african people but it can be only the human race people. Heal the World as Michael Jackson song!!! The Chinese philosopher Confucius said "Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves." The implication here is that a desire for revenge may ultimately hurt the seeker as much as the victim.

There are so many evil Muslims in the world and Osama was the most vile. I hope he burns in hell.

You mean justice like stoning women for walking on the street without a hijab, stoning women for daring to become educated, beheading people because they believed differently (as in Shia, I believe bin Laden was Sunni, I won't go into what he thought about Confucianism), blowing up staues of the Buddha, and on and on ...

I am completely opposed to my government's use of "special" interrogation techniques but it requires a special level of hypocrisy when people like bin Laden decry our use of torture - he and his minions routinely performed much worse.

This was about vengeance at a certain level for many many people, I can't deny that, however it was especially about removing a very evil person from the world.To believe this man was for justice requires an ignorance of monumental proportions. What a maroon.

As a former Marine with two middle east tours under his belt... There are some things the populous is better off not knowing. the use of "Enhanced Interrogation Techniques" while not pretty or glamourous save lives. Not only American lives but Muslim civilain lives as well.

The best example to use is Imagine someone kidnapped your Daughter and hid her. You caught him but he wont tell you where she is. To what extent to you cease the interrogation? Someone like me is trained to withstand whatever you can dish out... so we can go a long time with you asking me pretty please...

A comtemptible scribbling. But at least as bad as it is, is the fact this killing only reinforces our illusions about 9-11. While we can't know exactly what happened on 9-11 without a real investigation, what the available evidence tells us is that the government's conspiracy theory is a load of very stinky crap.

This whole thing was done as a prank. Someone just wanted to do something that would get lots of attention and it worked spectacularly! Why would anyone take this seriously?
