Yet another issue is that video gaming has become one of the all-time main forms of excitement for people of various age groups. Kids have fun with video games, plus adults do, too. Your XBox 360 is amongst the favorite gaming systems for those who love to have a huge variety of activities available to them, and also who like to play live with other folks all over the world. Thank you for sharing your thinking.

Great writing, precise, and lacking the sensationalism that has saturated the air waves, thankfully. Well done.
The government keeps slopping our troughs with bulls__t and we keep lapping it up and gulping down the Kool-Aid. There was a time when our journalists were a thin red line against government lies and deception but no more. The one who is really dead is Thomas Paine. We are, indeed, a pathetic people.

I suspect that the shooting occurred something like this. Bin Laden was first hit in the chest during the fire fight, and he went down but probably still alive. The SEAL then finished him with a second round to the head. The entire operation to and from the compound including time on the ground probably took 2&1/2 hrs inside Pakistan. Where was the Pakistani Air force and Radar? Under an umbrella of US stealth fighter planes. I bet an ultimatum was issued by phone immediately after the call "Geronimo" to the Pakistani military: "Stand down or be shot down." Don't interfere with this mission.

Even though Bin Laden wasn't living in a cave, the latest reports indicate that, when shot, he A) Wasn't armed; and B) Did not use his wife as a human shield.
There is nothing about being a genocidal ideologue that precludes one from bravery or taking risks. Hitler won the Iron Cross during WWI, and some of the toughest German fighters in WWII were the Nazi zealots of the Waffen SS. Nor did anyone ever underestimate the fighting abilities of the Soviets, communist Chinese, Koreans or Vietnamese.
Hay guys whats going on here
May Osama bin Laden (pbuh) rest in peace.

Hi Judith!

Too bad you fell for the "hid behind his wife" nonsense. Just like you fell for the WMD nonsense. Your presence here at City Journal is a stain on an otherwise great publication.
