Up until now I had assumed that OBL had been spread out in some nameless bomb crater back in the Fall of '01. Now it seems that Public Enemy #1 has been out and about for almost a decade, and when they do hit him, it is not in some cave, it is in a Pakistani mansion.
This is about the closure, not the way in which he was living. It is VERY significant, especially to those who witnessed the attacks that that man planned and directed.

Did I hear correctly Obama say that the mission happened today, rather than last week?
He said he gave the authorization last week, and the actual raid took place today. Presumably there's some setup time involved.
