Thoughts of the Day - May 2, 2011 The Day After a Terrorist is Dispatched

Minutes later, more word came over the transom. "We've IDed Geronimo," said a disembodied voice, using the agreed-upon code name for America's most wanted enemy, Osama bin Laden. Word then came that Geronimo had been killed.  Time Magazine

And with those words--a ten year effort to eradicate the mastermind of 9/11 was concluded.

Said the president: "I think we can all agree this is a good day for America."  The Guardian

The woman who bin Laden tried to use as a human shield was killed in the U.S. raid, Brennan said. Whether she shielded him willingly is not known.   ABC News

What a brave terrorist! Afraid to face the sentence he exacted upon so many people who died far braver that he did.

"Thinking about that from a visual perspective, here is bin Laden, who has been calling for these attacks, living in this million-dollar-plus compound; living in an area that is far removed from the front; hiding behind women who were put in front of him as a shield," Brennan told reporters. "I think it really just speaks to just how false his narrative has been over the years."  Channel 4 Nashville

And then the Toby Keith song: Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue

Hey, Uncle Sam put your name
At the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty
Started shaking her fist
And the eagle will fly
And it's going to be hell
When you hear Mother Freedom
Start ringing her bell
And it will feel like the whole wide world
Is raining down on you
Brought to you courtesy
Of the Red, White and Blue

Oh, justice will be served
And the battle will rage
This big dog will fight
When you rattle his cage
You'll be sorry that you messed
With the U.S. of A.
Cause we'll put a boot in your ass
It's the American way

Or maybe a bullet in your head!
