First of all...it is about damned time.

Query? How will this affect the US now? How will this affect the political climate?

It's amazing how little credit that the SEALS are getting...

According to another one of those White House briefings of reporters designed to suck up all available credit for good news, President Obama's homeland security advisor reveals that it was a really tense time in the air-conditioned White House as unidentified U.S. Navy SEALs closed in on the world's most wanted man after midnight a half a world away.

It's not about winning, losing, or getting any prize.

You know what? I haven't personally lost anyone to him But Ill bet a lot of people haven't. I do think that there is a way to accept justice in this world and to me dancing in the street and shouting we are he champions is not one of them I'm sorry but it's not.

at least not to me and that's my opinion.

From the footage I see in the streets it looked like they won the lottery.

I'm glad he's dead, but I don't care for the scenes of "celebration." It reminds me of what the extremists do and I think we are better than that.

I'm not so much for the dancing in the streets, but for this guy I make an exception.

For what it's worth, I agree that doing jigs in the streets is unseemly.

I think that it makes us no better than the reports that some in the middle east were dancing in the streets when they heard that 9/11 had happened.

I wonder how long it will be before they name a new leader?

Maybe there's a joke in there. How do you quickly clear a room of Al Qaeda senior officials?
