If I had been President I would have let the Arab world release the news. The OBL legacy may well be enhanced by the announcement by the US PRESIDENT!
There is too much anger and frustration in MENA on the streets and in their polity generally to not worry about enhancing OBL’s legacy. I am concerned that the US again in its ignorance has done just that.
It will take over a decade and perhaps longer IMO to understand fully what drove OBL and what his legacy represents to history! But at least that decade long process has finally begun with his death. A man who did make history.
