    You also have to wonder how much Pakistan wanted to be mentioned in the speech as having cooperated on this. They probably didn't want to be, for internal politics reasons, Obama probably insisted on the reference.

    Right? That's the implication, right?
    It's symbolic for some. People need this, and will eat it up. For someone who works within one of the agencies theres much biggers things that I'd love to make the headlines but they won't for too many reasons. It's nice, but some are acting like this really matters in some way or another. It doesn't. Not that it shouldn't take away from the closure it can give some in a symbolic sort of way. PR has been a mainstay for governments since the beginning of time, I'll just say that.

    At this point, so what? Dr. Frankenstein finally kills his monster.

    If the loved ones of the people who died in the 9/11 attacks find comfort in this, then I am happy for them. If people choose to celebrate this, I will not chastise them. I do not feel any more "free" because of it though. I do not feel this changes the culture of endless war in our world. I wish that killing this one person would bring us closer to peace, but it will not do anything to accomplish that. In fact, it will make things worse.

    Bert, that was written after about 40 seconds of him talking. I later wrote that the speech got better as it went on but at the point I wrote that, those were my feelings. And yes I will stand by my initial reaction to the speech at that point. He made it sound like it wasn't a top priority to get him until Leon Panetta got there.

    When I first heard that there would be a dramatic announcement, I assumed it would be something awful like an imminent terrorist threat of monumental proportions. It didn't occur to me that it might be something good. So, when I heard the news, it was a relief. I think the death is largely symbolic as he was apparently ill and dying anyway and this isn't going to stop terrorism or even slow it down much. However, it's a very important symbol and something that the whole country can celebrate. We haven't had that in a long long time.

    I always heard that it was the other way around, i.e. that the sitting president discovers that he has more in common with his predecessor regardless of affiliation.

    That would make sense - I had it backwards... the sitting president has four to eight years of realizing what the predecessor went through

    He orchestrated the death of thousands of Americans. I don't care if he was mother Teresa, you kill him. You might as well just let murderers run loose in the US then.

    After the Bay of Pigs Kennedy had Nixon in for a visit. He said something like "Foreign affairs really is the most important thing a President does. Who gives a **** if the minimum wage is $1.15 or $1.25 in the grand scheme of things."

    I woke up at a campsite just outside of Gettysburg this morning. i was camping with ROMAD Jr's cub scout pack. We toured Little Round Top and Devils Den and I tried to impart to him the importance of what we were looking at. He didn't quite get it but, he and I had a few interesting chats about the importance of the battle. Strange to have had that experience just today.

    Kinda morbid, but most news networks have obituaries ready to go for people they may be dying soon for whatever reason. Hence how you'll see the Nightly News have a four minute video obituary read to go for a guy that died an hour before.

    I think the NY Times actually interviews people about their potential obit... Most news agencies have files on prominent people --- and what is that but notes for an obit
