Osama's Dead...What Next??


The news spread like crazy last night about the death of Osama bin Laden. I have to admit, I was a little happy to think that American's that lost family and loved ones 10 years ago may finally be able to get some closure following such a tragic event. I feel like that's the main takeaway from this. Or at least it should be.

The other thing I thought about was, while this should be a moment of celebration, there is still the threat of possible backlash from al-Qaeda radicals. (Knock on wood) Closure is good but we still need to be focused on the bigger picture, which is ending terrorism in the nation and the world.

As my man Dave said on Twitter: The leader is dead but the ideology is still very much alive.
