A few thoughts about Osama bin Laden finally being brought to justice, nearly 10 years after 9/11.
Congratulations to President Obama, who has clearly distinguished himself from Jimmy Carter, whose attempted rescue of the Iran hostages was a debacle. I’m just glad Mr. Obama wasn’t able to close Guantanamo Bay as he had promised; we apparently were able to extract key intelligence information from the terrorists being held there. Let’s just hope it wasn’t obtained through waterboarding!
Let’s also resist the temptation to close up shop against the terrorists. This is an important and highly symbolic victory, but, unfortunately, the war on Islamist terror goes on. We’ll need to keep our guard up even more in the coming days.
Finally, I wonder if in his final minutes whether bin Laden cried for mercy … mercy he denied nearly 3,000 victims a decade ago.
