Osama bin Laden has been killed!!!

Nearly a decade after the September 11th attacks, Osama bin Laden has been killed. According to the New York Times, U.S. officials say that American forces launched a targeted assault and killed the Al Qaeda leader who has eluded capture ever since the attacks on the twin towers and the Pentagon ten years ago.

The news comes after years of speculation as to whether the terrorist leader was even still alive. President Obama has confirmed that bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan.

More on the long hunt for bin Laden here. President Bush has sent President Obama his congratulations..

At this point, Obama’s reelection seems almost certain. There is simply no way that Republicans can paint him as week on terror. Also, can we leave Afghanistan now? Can Obama please fly out to that aircraft carrier and string up the ‘Mission Accomplished’ banner and call this whole thing a wrap?

Yeah, I didn’t think so. But it would be nice if killing bin Laden meant an end to the Forever War.
