Today we remember the 11th anniversary of the worst attack against America on our home soil. This year, it is mildly different as the perpetrator, Osama Bin Laden is now dead due to the bravery of Seal Team 6 (video of the actual operation here).
I congratulate the president on executing the mission to attack him, although it would have been better if we had been able to waterboard him for more information. I believe that except for the most rabid of pacifists, most Americans would have been happy to give the same order.
Likewise, we should give credit to the Bush administration for setting up the intelligence network and the extracting and the correlation of the intelligence that lead to his demise. So a great number of people who contributed should share in the credit and be praised for a job well done.
Here is a round up of coverage during the day regarding this anniversary. I’ll gladly include any other coverage that is respectful and accurate.
We could have captured Osama before 9/11 but let him get away
