Re: Bin Laden Dead

I’m very glad to hear it, Robert. My own announcement of his demise was off only by a mere nine years. I’m inclined to agree with Austin Bay that it would have been better for Osama to have died back then than spend a decade skulking at the back of a cave to no great strategic purpose.

PS That said, the business about “a mansion near Islamabad” is disturbing. I hope it doesn’t turn out he’s been hiding in plain sight these past years.
