President Obama's announcement tonight that Osama bin Laden has been killed is historic -- one the world has anticipated for nearly ten years. This is a case where revenge is redemption. Bin Laden incurred the wrath of the world for being the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks on innocent people. His death closes a major chapter in the War Against Terror and is a victory for President Obama's leadership, but it does not close the book. Celebration should be tempered as suffering from terrorism continues around the world. We must work relentlessly to put an end to it wherever it is found.
