Osama bin Laden was killed on May 1 in a raid by Navy SEALS at his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, finally caught by his pursuers ten years after the United States declared him Enemy No. 1. Bin Laden had been a fugitive from American justice since at least 1998, when he organized the bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa, but it was only after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, that Washington began using the full military and technological might at its disposal to dismantle al Qaeda, and target its leader. President Barack Obama made a special priority of tracking down the elusive jihadist, promising to act on any intelligence that suggested bin Laden's whereabouts. This past weekend, he made good on that promise, bringing some measure of justice to the victims of al Qaeda's terror attacks, if not yet a final end to the global war on terror.
