The End of the Beginning

"Beware the fury of a patient man."

John Dryden

Scratch one dirtbag.

Osama bin Laden is dead, killed by American special forces in a daring raid in Pakistan.

Early reports are that the SEALs carried out the operation, but it will take time to sort out the details. Regardless of what unit carried out the raid: well done, guys.

The War on Terror is not over, but this is definitely a victory.

"Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."

Winston Churchill
