A Terrible Swift Sword

To paraphrase the Battle Hymn of the Republic, America has used its "terrible swift sword" and sent Osama bin Laden to Hell.

The difficult question is this: why is it that this bastard was living unfettered near the capital of Pakistan for all these years?  I know that there may be people in Pakistan who will be upset about this, but too bad.  If the leadership of Pakistan doesn't like what we've done, then perhaps they should have done it themselves over the past six or so years when bin Laden was living under their noses.

While it's never a good thing to celebrate death, in this instance it is certainly fitting to feel a sense of relief at justice served.
