It seems natural to spend the second half of this week discussing the ramifications of the bin Laden killing. Does the bin Laden killing mark a significant milestone in the war of terror? What are (or should be) the goals for the US war on terror? At what point do we know we have won the war? Should President Obama get credit for this event and is it justified that his approval ratings will go up? Are the democracy movements in the Middle East a reflection of the success of our war on terror? How much money should we continue to spend on the war on terror at the expense of other priorities?
Please add any other thoughts about the bin Laden killing and the war on terror that you think might be relevant.
UPDATE: The Obama administration has decided not to release any photos of the dead bin Laden. Wise decision?
