Denouement

First/Foremost: It would be a spectacularly bad idea to release any photographs of Bin Laden’s corpse.

Second: The biggest prize from this raid was the information on the hard drives seized. It should contain leads on all of the tentacles of money which drives (or drove) the network, and probably has information which will lead to the physical location of Al-Zawahireh and his ilk.

I was struck by the unexpectedly gracious behavior of Richard Cheney in giving credit where it was due.

Someone should make it crystal clear that ‘hard interrogation techniques’ were not responsible for developing the earliest information which led to this achievement.

I would be very glad if more sensible people would confront this myth more aggressively.
