Osama bin Ladin is dead.
I’ve never felt joy at the death of a human being before. Yet I cannot deny that I am in a celebratory mood. Not only a terrorist — THE symbol of jihadist terror in the modern world — is now dead. That it was the Americans who got him is also heartwarming.
Justice is done. Not completely — nothing can undo the damage Osama and his virus-like organization has wrought. But it is a start.
