He Was Found and is No More

Here in New York, as I believe in most of our country, we can breathe a deep sigh of relief and feel a small sense of justice that The perpetrator of the events of September 11, 2001 has met his fate at the hands of US Navy Seals and Special Ops last night.

"We will not tire. We will not falter. We will not fail" were the words of former President George W. Bush ten years ago when he vowed that Osama bin Laden would be found. And so he has.

It is somewhat difficult remembering those days, but remember we must. Last night there was celebration in NYC, but this time it was because a murderer was found. Unlike after September 11 when cheering hordes broke out in certain communities to celebrate the attacks of the World Trade Center and 3000 deaths in NYC.

I'm sure this is only the beginning and only this chapter has come to an end.


  1. It's great he was found and killed but I think it is crappy that our government gave him an 'honorable' Muslim burial complete with wrapping his body in silk. What kind of mixed message does this send?

  2. Maybe it says we will be the better guy in this argument. No matter what they did with the body his followers would say it was wrong. Can't win this one by them, but we know we are the winners. Now we need pictures.
