After a long search for the mastermind of the September 11th terrorist attacks justice has been served. President Obama has just announced that he gave the order earlier today to bring Osama to justice. The special forces team on the ground was engaged in a firefight and Osama was killed. The mission was carried out within Pakistan near Islamabad. Osama was reportedly gunned down in his mansion by U.S. Navy Seals and Delta Force. While the war on terror is not over this certainly ends a very long chapter.
This is truly a remarkable event. Granted it took a decade to kill the man who launched the worst terrorist attack in American history but at least it is done and this extremist is no longer breathing. It does make one wonder that perhaps we could have killed this bastard sooner had Bush stayed focus on the real threat instead of spending years and hundreds of billions of dollars in Iraq. Course we have been looking high and low for this monster in every cave network our troops stumbled across. Turns out we should have been going door to door in wealthy neighborhoods examining every McMansion throughout Pakistan.
