I'm as glad as the next guy to see Bin Laden dead but the Special Forces part of me is thinking of the number of suicide bombers he is going to call to martyrdom... although as i understand it he has a lot less influence than he use to... still there will always be some dumb bastards who will gladly to to Allah to avenge him What a mess... thank you Mr Bush...
In his speech, Pres. Obama mentioned special forces in the firefight but another official later said that it was a SEAL team, that they weren't aware if Bin Laden was actually in the firefight himself, but his body which they recovered had a bullet hole in the head..."resisting arrest" do you suppose? )
Security conditions around the world elevated in case of retaliation. Can't wait to hear the Pakistani response tomorrow. They had no idea he was living in a mansion on the outskirts of Islamabad! Right!!!
I don't think so- not any more than they already would have. Randy is right, though- the other head of the snake is al-Zawahiri, who needs to be killed as well. I have a particular disgust for this individual as he trained as a physician and then became an international criminal and murderer. He is a disgrace to our profession.
The capture and killing of bin Laden is a victory for international intelligence and police work. These guys are not political figures- they are international criminals and finally have been successfully treated as such. Good for the SEALs- they scored big on this one.
