I have conflicted feelings about the killing of Osama bin Laden. Not conflicted feelings about the incident itself, but about the reactions. I feel relief, but something else too. I don’t know what it is, really. I understand the desire on the part of folks to acknowledge and even celebrate, but I found the Super Bowl victory style cheering a bit jarring.
I found two interesting takes: The New Republic ran a pseudonymous piece by a Delta Force commander who was at Tora Bora in late 2001, the other is a piece by Sister Mary Ann McGivern.
