Osama bin Laden Killed

My own reactions, for what they’re worth:

1. I’m reading that none of the U.S. forces involved in the attack (Navy SEALs and CIA special forces) were hurt. I’m thankful for that. These are some very brave people.

2. I guess this should be a “hell yeah” moment, but honestly, it doesn’t feel that way to me. Partly because it won’t bring back any of the thousands of innocent people he killed ten years ago. Partly because it’s not yet clear what this will mean for the world. And partly because I don’t think any human being’s death is cause for celebration, no matter how richly deserved.

3. His compound was “100 yards from a Pakistani military academy,” according to MSNBC. There is a story there. I’d like to know what it is.

Back to my usual topic tomorrow.

One response to “Osama bin Laden Killed

  1. I’m interested in that story too.

    Oh, and the Scrubs Janitor was right.
