Osama Bin Laden – Updated

One of several foreign policy and military victories under President Obama and his team. (Check out Ebony, The Economist or the BBC for more info on this not the mainstream U.S. media.) Remember the African American female admiral who beat the Somali pirates?

I love the lack of machismo and bluster. Love the style. If he had any idea of this when he was roasting Trump and the birthers … kudos.

Hopefully this buys a second term and the political capital to do much, much more of the right thing.

On the other hand, I wouldn’t be surprised if the majority of politicos and reporters celebrated the military and minimize President Obama’s leadership.

And Lord have mercy, don’t let there be any more to this story — assassination, unprovoked assault, etc.

Am I the only one who wished we hadn’t opted for the burial at sea? In light of Abu Gharib and Guantanamo, I hope that Muslim world will trust that the burial was according to Islamic standards. I pray this doesn’t spark endless conspiracy theories.
