What day is it?
If you haven't heard on the news yet they are saying the US has killed Bin Laden and they have his body and have confirmed it. Outstanding thought I would share the good news.
It was just released that he was killed in a mansion outside Islamabad.Okay I had to go to CNN to find it. Nothing on BBC, CBC or Toronto Star. Very interesting. I'll wait for the official confirmation before I celebrate more than that.
Certainly the death of Osama Bin Laden is the achievement of a long sought after goal, but I wonder how much it will really hurt the cause of terrorism at this point. The decentralized cellular structure of a terrorist organization and the many players under different banners makes me think that while this is a well deserved feather in the cap, it also provides a rallying cry that may surpass the actual contributions of Bin Laden to their cause.
Edit: Wow, I thought I understood the 24 hour news cycle. But literally since I first posted the news has exploded onto all my usual sites.
