I'm working on an additional column to address the Christian hand-wringing 'we shouldn't be celebrating Osama's death' goofiness some people are expressing, but...
First things first.
I am incredibly grateful today for the brilliant execution of this operation carried out by the US military. I am also incredibly grateful for the sacrificial service of every member of our armed forces and their families since the horrifying events of September 11, 2001. Navy Seals! Let the world and every enemy of freedom fear those two words.
I am also incredibly grateful for the decisive leadership shown by President Obama in this matter. He deserves great credit for showing the world and this country that he has what it takes to take down the bad guys and won't hesitate to make the tough calls when the situation demands it. Congratulations Mr. President, both to you and to your entire administration on a job well done, one from which every American can take heart and in which we can all take proper pride.
This is a day to celebrate. This is a day we have had to wait far too long to mark. Thank God it has finally arrived.
