Heartfelt Thanks

Thank you to the Navy SEALs, the US intelligence agencies, Presidents Bush and Obama, and anyone else I've neglected to mention who aided in tracking down Osama bin Laden.

I found out about his death last night toward the end of my coven's Beltane ritual, when I called my husband to let him know I was ready to be picked up. It was stunning news.

In the words of author John Birmingham. I'm happy that this human cancer has been removed from the face of the earth--and I give my sympathies to the family of the woman he used as a human shield. That last act of bin Laden's says all we need to know about what sort of man he was.

Poor Westboro Baptist Church--no funeral to picket.

Current Mood: thankfulthankful

As I guess you are aware by now the US Government have retracted that Bin Laden had used his wife as a human shield and in fact she was wounded when she rushed a SEAL.

Of course, it does not make Bin Laden any less a monster but the fact that he was unarmed paints a different picture to the initial reports of a firefight.

Sadly all this chopping and changing of the account does not reflect well on the USA especially considering as the chap that gave it was one of those witnessing it live on the helmet-cams.
