The killing of Osama bin Laden is a major triumph for President Obama andUSA. It is a momentous symbolic victory. “Yes We Can” has been confirmed and underlined. It will boost Obama’s re-election chances immeasurably. The triumphalism displayed on the streets and in media outlets in the USA reveals the depths of patriotism as well as the hostility to extreme Muslim fundamentalism. Parenthetically and laconically one can note that there is no question of a war crimes charge being raised by Ban Ki Moon Incorporated against the US special forces responsible for the collateral killing of Osama’s “civilian” son and other civilians who may have died in the assault. The story of this commando strike is pictured as an “act of justice” not as an “outrage.”
