Osama Bin Laden is Dead!

Okay, he's been dead for a week as it took that long to confirm his DNA. The nation that barely remembers those attacks on September 11. 2001 now rejoice on the streets of Washington. President Obama made his speech and affirmed that we were not at war with Islam, despite the fact that Jews and Christians do not hijack planes and run them into buildings for Yahweh. It took about an hour for the President to finally make the speech that in my opinion, was void of feeling or passion. This was almost if Obama lost his best friend.
The problem is that the war isn't over with Al Qaeda, or Islam; not by a long shot. Soon, the U.S. and Israel will probably feel the wrath of the bereaved of their benefactor and Imam. It almost reminds me of Star Wars and the death of Count Dooku, when Darth Sidious tells General Grievous this was a necessary loss. This writer believes this is also the case and will probably buoy Obama's popularity, maybe substantially for a time. Watch Obama's political fortunes to improve over the next few weeks. This could be the start of something big. I could be wrong, but it's looking that way.
