Justice Wins. Bin Laden is Dead.

It took 10 years, a new President, and the stellar collaborative work of the U.S. Intelligence Community to enable the success of the military operation against Osama bin Laden. Congratulations to all of the people whose names we'll never know that led to this momentous event of justice and vindication. We're so quick to judge intelligence failures that become public knowledge while the successes rarely make the news. Not only is this an intelligence success for CIA, NSA, and other agencies, it's vindication for President Obama's strategy to re-focus on capturing or killing Osama bin Laden in spite of political pressure to quit. I'm proud of everyone involved, and hugely grateful.
