    I agree that this is very good news, but I suspect Obama's policy views will drain it of its full potential. This Taliban leader should be immediately and aggressively exploited for intel. Once the scumbag stops yielding useful information, he should be processed by a military tribunal and executed without delay.

    Was there a choice?

    The big heroes are the ones who planned it, and much moreso the ones who carried it out. I would love to take all those out and buy them beers and thank them for what they did.
    I agree. I wish I could have been part of the operation. I'd also like to help them extract actionable intel from this criminal warlord, and use that intel to plan future raids on our enemies, and on and on until they're all dead or surrendered.

    Fair enough. I'm very glad of it, and I don't want to make it partisan, but certain people are trying to give Obama credit for this operation, and I'm just not sure what he had to do with it. Seems like that's kind of partisan, too.

    No reason, except Obama and Co. trashed Bush during the campaign and then continued his policies once in office. If not for that, I wouldn't have said it.

    The article mentions he is being held and interrogated by Pakistani intelligence, who have a reputation for world class torture. If you really believe the best intelligence is obtained through torture, you should be delighted.

    The CIA operatives are probably trying to remain anonymous for fear of being tried by Obama for giving their captive a bloody nose.

    But what I find encouraging is the Pakistani involvement, which is less than consistent to say the least. Might we, or they, be getting closer to bin Laden?

    Caught on their soil wasn't he? That means they have jurisdiction.

    Goodness me. No trial? No evidence? No conviction. Calls for interrogate and then behead?

    My my, what would the world think, no wonder they don't like us.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.
