We have wondered for some time how significant was the killing of Osama bin Laden in the long run. It was an efficient operation to track him down and the raid in which he was killed went off like clockwork with a few minor complications that were quickly dealt with — our military and support forces did a great job.

In any military operation, regardless of how well planned it is, action rarely goes completely as planned. There always is the human element and other factors that can cause problems. How the troops react to the unexpected spells success or failure. In the bin Laden raid, our well-trained troops dealt with the problems in an excellent fashion.
