Mission REALLY Accomplished: Osama bin Laden is Dead

6 years ago

So who was this guy who so hated the U.S., yet worked with us early in his life?

PBS has a bio that is informative but may contain errors.

Seems he was killed about a week ago according to what Pres. Obama said.  The ops started last August.  Last week President Obama determined he had enough intelligence to order the human staffed U.S. ops mission that attacked house in or near Islamabad where bin Laden had been hiding. 

What it portends for the future of U.S. military actions is of more interest to me.  Can we now please bring our troops home? Then we can seriously focus on economic, cyber, and info warfare which is where so much of our current real enemies' energies are focused. To see the cost of war since 2001 $1,188,239,000,000 and growing by the hundreds of thousands as I write this - check out this site.  This is why we have a deficit. 

Plus the price of gold will drop, the stock market will go up, and there will be an uptick in the dollar (for a short while) -- but there will also probably be an increase in terror attacks too.
