Osama bin Laden Dead


Last night, news was released that Osama bin Laden was killed in Pakistan by a small team of our ground forces. This is excellent news.

I’m actually very surprised he had survived this long – after his dead silence (as opposed to his usual propaganda output) following the Tora Bora bombing operation, I had assumed he must have died sometime during the opening part of the Afghanistan campaign.

With any luck, this will begin to collapse Al Qaeda’s resistance in Afghanistan. I don’t know the precise value of that man to their organization, but with something like $100M in funding from his family’s construction business, and him being the planner behind a few of the more deadly attacks, losing that has got to hurt them pretty badly.

In any case, the leader behind killing hundreds of people around the world, and 3000 Americans in 2001, is finally dead.
