    Unfortunately the mission is still not accomplished, even with him dead

    It would be nice if we could get our troops the heck out of there though, then we found finally declare that mission over.

    Guess you weren't around in the hours after Barack released his longform.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Hats off to the President and the military members involved in this operation.
    Here, here! Glad to here that all our people will be coming home safely who were involved in this mission.

    Thank you for your useless, and factually incorrect, partisan jab. I am glad to see this moment means more as a political club for you to try and attack the other side over rather than something to simply be happy with as an American.

    No kidding. I can't imagine the smiles on their faces sharing that moment.

    I agree. This is a victory for both these men.

    Definitely he was surrounded with other top guns. We will probably find out in next few days who else was killed. May be hard to identify them though.
