    More a symbolic, psychological development at this point probably, than a practical one. Have to see how this unfolds politically now.

    Side show really to what is happening in the Arab Muslim world.

    Let's hope there are no triumphalist bad taste photos.

    Batten down the hatches, Petals and wait for the retaliation.

    His grave will now be a rallying point and a site of homage and pilgrimage for the non-moderates.

    That I should learn of this from LPSG! Well, I got the particulars by going to Google News, but only after seeing this thread.

    I don't suppose that it will make much difference now, as Al Qaeda seems no longer to be much of a centralized operation. But I'm glad that we no longer have to put any resources into finding or killing this asshole, assuming that the reports are true.
