It took nearly 10 years, but Osama bin Laden has met his fate. The world's most notorious terrorist is no longer with us. Thanks to a small band of U.S. Special Forces, Bin Laden has been eliminated. The free world has rejoiced over his killing. His death has released a decade-long of frustration and hate, giving some closure to those families impacted by the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. What is amazing about how bin Laden was killed at his Pakistani mansion is how smoothly the raid went off. A limited number of Navy Seals executed the plan in less than 40 minutes with no U.S. casualties. To penetrate such a heavily guarded fortress is remarkable, to pull off the operation seamlessly is amazing. It reinforces our belief that the US Intelligence system does work. It also reaffirms that this country has defense forces second to none. I only have one regret in bin Laden's death. I would have rather seen him taken alive, brought back to the US and face constant torturous treatment. A quick death did not do true justice. Mr. Evil should have had to deal with constant pain which he has made countless families endure. Bin Laden's death does not end terrorism by any means, but it does erase the face of it.
