The Sunday death of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was a “decisive victory,” according to officials. This has led to inevitable questions of whether the war in Afghanistan, nominally started to capture bin Laden, should end now.
“It is our hope that you can similarly unify the nation by bringing our troops home and ending America’s longest war in history,” urged a letter signed by a number of Democrat Congressmen.
The administration has already ruled out ending the wars, and appears to be positioning the death as vindication for a policy of open-ended war. With polls showing a number of Americans less dissatisfied with the war than usual, it seems they may get away with it in the near term.
NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen has likewise said the war will continue, saying he does not believe bin Laden’s killing should have any affect on the war. He cheered the attack as “justified” but said it would never change the alliance’s policy.

1- Even if…, I repeat.., even if US/NATO is wanting to drawdown its militarism presence in Afghanistan it will not happen.., they have more on their hand now that OSB is killed.
Reading all the news and going back to last few months not only I think that there is something shady going on but in relation to Libyan war.., the tips by an Al Qaeda affiliated that were given to US intelligent about whereabouts Osama Bin Laden and knowing that Al Qaeda and other religious extremisms are involved in fighting Libyan government.., and that Hillary Clinton hade a meeting with them (Muslims Brotherhood) in Egypt and in Paris is a scenarios that one needs to think about. Having said that: if this theory turn out to be true then US needs to continue to support these Islamic elements in Libya returning their favor exposing about OBL where about.., therefore they are not going to end the war in Afghanistan but rather setting a new standard for the war in Libya…, maintaining the Afghanistan war and its occupation.
2- All this been happening in just few months time.., Muslims Brotherhood is up and running everywhere and doing all kind of propaganda for themselves.., Hillary Clinton and part of the US and EU government is supportive of this group and those terrorist groups that are affiliated with them.., am I only one asking this question.., WHY.. To clarify the matter Hillary Clinton needs to come out and say the truth.., what was discussed when she hade a meeting with Muslims Brotherhood and rest of the Libyan Council.., what was promised to them by US and EU and what was given or promised by the rebels to US.
3- When one of Osama bin Laden's most trusted aides picked up the phone last year, he unknowingly led U.S. pursuers to the doorstep of his boss, the world's most wanted terrorist.
That monitored phone call, recounted Monday by a U.S. official, ended a years-long search for bin Laden's personal courier, the key break in a worldwide manhunt. The courier, in turn, led U.S. intelligence to a walled compound in northeast Pakistan, where a team of Navy SEALs shot bin Laden to death.
Question: why would they wait for a year to accomplish their mission.., what happened to Al Kuwaiti who made that phone call to OBL.., where is he.., is he in Libya….!
