Justice delayed is justice denied. Accused Serb war criminal Gen. Ratko Mladic killed at least five times more civilians than Osama bin Laden was accused of doing, yet at times no one seemed in any hurry to find the "Butcher of Sarajevo."

Ratko Mladic Capture Helps Balkans Move Forward

The ruthless speed and efficiency with which Mladic's troops rounded up and killed innocent men and boys, then raped their wives and sisters, shocked the world into finally ending a war that forced me to flee my home and cost my brother his life.

I suppose I should be jumping for joy now that Mladic is in custody, but it's not that simple. His crimes are not a footnote in the history books for me. They are etched in the fabric of my soul and those of many of my friends.

While President Obama has been criticized by many on the political left and right for moving too slowly in reacting to Libya, there is simply no truth to the notion that he dragged his heels in orchestrating action there. The decisions made by the White House on Libya, whether one liked or disliked those decisions, happened at an incredible rate.
