The death of Osama Bin Laden

Despite all the doubts regarding the body and dead picture of Osama Bin Laden (OBL), it has been confirmed by its supporter that he has been killed by the U.S. forces in Pakistan right under the nose of that country’s military academy and Fort. The way it was done is classic Hollywood fare, although it was real. After much searching and speculating about him, he was found not in a cave but in relative comfort in a resort town surrounded by Pakistan Military personnel and quite a few years. His death has been received with jubilation all around the world (except of course in Pakistan) even in a country where he was born, Saudi Arabia and which refused to take his body saying his nationality was revoked and they don’t have anything to do with him or his immediate family.

In Pakistan there has been endless speculation of about how the U.S. forces were able to snuck in without getting detected by Pakistan Military and that is the mystery which is not going to be solved any time soon because that will just destroy the myth of invincibility of Pakistan Military which has built its reputation on the professionalism and courage of its men and women. Any way it is a long discussion about who is the blame for the breach of security in Pakistan and we should not be least concerned about it. But we should congratulate all the Special Forces who took out OBL and now it is time to hunt the remaining leaders of Al-Qaeda one by one regardless of where they are hiding.
