Finally, after ten long years, justice has been served. Osama Bin Laden, mastermind of the September 11th, 2001 jetliner bombings, is now dead and will face the eternal judgement of his Maker. This not only represents an unprecedented blow to al-Qaeda and the Taliban, it represents an unprecedented attack on a terrorist organization within the borders of Pakistan. For years, a direct confrontation with Pakistan [a nuclear State that is known to contain international terrorism camps] curtailed any hopes of co-operation between the United States and Pakistani governments. It seems that President Barak Obama has finally been able to overcome this decade long problem and either get the blessing of the Pakistani government to attack Bin Laden’s compound or he simply did not care and told the Pakistani government that the United States was doing it anyway.
Regardless, President Barak Obama deserves credit for making the call to remove this terrorist from the face of the Earth. Whether he was given the chance to surrender or not is moot point because this man, by his own public admission, had the blood of thousands of innocent people on his hands. There is no need for a trial, no need for a jury, only justice to be served in the form of a quick death… something that he did not afford many of his victims.
So kudos to President Barak Obama and the elite special forces team who ended this evil man’s life.
