The End of an Era?

As I'm writing this blog, President Barack Obama is delivering a speech on the death of Osama Bin Laden. While the story continues to unfold, many questions will be raised after Bin Laden's demise. What is the new path on this war against terrorism? Surely, this historic event will not change U.S. policy against terrorism, yet it enhances all of the troops' morality fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq.

According to official sources, Bin Laden was killed at a mansion outside of Pakistan's capital city, Islamabad, which at the same time raises questions about Pakistan's security measures; nevertheless, I'm faithful this and many other questions will be answered, but for now, I'm pretty sure the victims of the attacks from 9/11, the Madrid, London, and the Tanzanian and Kenyan embassies have some kind of relief. For the rest of the story on this watershed moment in contemporary history, please click here:
