Osama bin Laden reportedly killed *

http://www.jewishjournal.com/blog/item/osama_bin_laden_reportedly_killed_20110501/

This was a long time coming:

Osama bin Laden, hunted as the mastermind behind the worst-ever terrorist attack on U.S. soil, has been killed, sources told ABC News.

That’s from ABC News, but the story is all over the place right now.

The crazy thing is that it took so long. It’s been almost a decade since the 9/11 attacks. And bin Laden’s relevance seemed to have faded as other terror leaders rose up and more al Qaeda cells grew up around the world.

I have to wonder what sort of response there will be from bin Laden’s fellow travelers. Here’s hoping the violent brand of Islamism has died with bin Laden. But only naivete would allow such a belief. The real question is who is going to step up to take bin Laden’s place.

*Updated with that video of the president’s press conference.
