I guess that means we can finally get rid of the Department of Homeland Security and that unforgivable abomination of bureaucracy called the Transportation Security Administration. Right?
EDIT 11:52 p.m. EST: I will make note of my thankfulness that Bin Laden has finally come to his just desserts, by humbly suggesting that his corpse be given the "Mussolini treatment", culminating in his remains being eternally desecrated by wrapping them in pig skins.
But still: tonight, the United States has won as decisive a victory as could possibly be had against the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks.
Some will say that this presents an opportunity to bring our armed forces home.
Tonight, there is an obligation to bring them home.
A few months shy of the tenth anniversary of the attacks, and we can finally say in all truthfulness, "Mission Accomplished".
If Americans want to feel earnest victory tonight, then we should begin to take a good hard look at what we have lost since 9/11... and resolve to take it back.
