Nine years, seven months and twenty days after 9/11, the United States successfully hunted down and killed the most notorious mass murderer in American history.
The United States killed Osama bin Laden in a military operation.
The President ordered the CIA to make hunting Bin Laden its chief priority in the War on Terror. President Obama also had the moxie to launch the operation in Pakistan.
U.S. operatives killed bin Laden in a firefight and captured his body.
There could not have been a better outcome.
More importantly, President Obama’s actions sent a clear and unambiguous message to terrorists around the world: If you murder innocent America civilians, the American military will purse you to the ends of the earth and will not stop until it hunts you down.
Those who follow this blog knows that I have been a frequent critic of Obama’s foreign policy. But today, I am proud to say that the President did what was necessary to protect America.
Bravo, President Obama! Bravo!
