Interesting that Osama bin Laden has finally met justice. I'm surprised by a few of the details. Near Islamabad. In a mansion. In a firefight. Lengthy intelligence operation.
The media seem to forget that bin Laden issued his Fatwa against America long before 9/11. They do remember shrub saying "dead or alive", but will they notice that it was actually Obama who got Osama? And if what Obama said is anywhere close to the truth, they're actually engaging in useful intelligence. And some old fashioned spywork.
One big factor is that ISI was clearly involved. That will have some serious political implications in both Pakistan and Afghanistan,
Al Queda will still exist, but without bin Laden it will be weaker. So today's news is good.
