Bin Ladin and Hitler. Both died as enemies of the USA. Both were violent killers of the innocent. Both were hiding when killed. It does no good to see pictures of the now dead killer of humanity. To release a picture of a half blown off head only will incite those who are already incited. It would be below the dignity of the USA to rub it in to those who need no further reason to condemn us for killing him execution style. It would be exploited by t-shirt images, background for dark music and give our children bad thoughts. I trust the USA and the Navy Seals.If the Navy Seals say they killed him, to be sure they killed him.

Now is a time of celebration, each in his/her own way. it is a time to be proud of our beloved county and , yes, ALL of our leaders. It is a time of deep reflection and careful deliberation before going over the top. It is a time in history not to be denied.
After we killed Hitler we forgave the German people for what their dictator had done. After the imperial Japanese government surrendered we forgave the Japanese people for what their dictator had done.
I get emails from those who believe that the brotherhood of Islam is on a mission to destroy and remake the USA. I receive emails from those who believe this notion is not correct.
Whatever we believe, we must now be proud to live in the USA and think positive, act positive and live positive.
As for foreign policy, it sometimes leaves much to be desired, be we can and will do better.
