As an American, I feel compelled to write a little about my feelings regarding the assassination of this man. For the past ten years, I have been one of the people wondering if we would ever find this man and bring him to justice. Out of the blue, he is found and killed. I guess it really isn't so much out of the blue". From all that I have read, the US government has had ideas about his whereabouts for the past several years. It seems President Obama wanted to make sure that his death or capture could be verified so that politics and politicians have minimal ammunition to sell other agendas.
Living here in Warsaw, I have not been inundated with the US media's 24 hour coverage of this event. Whereas I am feeling more satisfied that he is gone, it is up to me to think about what it means as opposed to being told by those who have a bully pulpit. This is when I am again reminded that I have a wonderful opportunity here to allow myself to think and not have to fight the brainwashing of the American media.
