Osama bin Laden's dead. Now what?

Not much, that's what.

Some internal Pakistani soul-searching. Some gradually changing attitudes within Pakistan. Some greater momentum for Afghani and US good guys in Afghanistan. Some greater scrutiny of Pakistan's attitudes toward the Haqqani network, Lashkar-e-Taiba and the Waziristan/Taliban problem.

Some momentum for the Democrats in 2012's Presidential election, but the GOP will be fighting back taking credit. Obama had good odds going into 2012 already, what with the Tea Party, Sarah Palin and Trump's idiocy all working against the GOP already. Now he just has slightly better odds. No real serious GOP alternative like Condoleeza Rice or Colin Powell or a stand-out war hero, either.

Efforts around the world to stop stupidities like religious fundamentalism and associated intolerant fanatics got a shot in the arm, but it's not that big of a deal, except for Pakistan and US patriots.

Speaking of those rascally terrorists:

An Al Qaeda terrorist with strong links to chief Osama bin Laden used impotency injections so that he could focus on carrying out jihad and not on womanising, according to secret Guantanamo Bay files released by WikiLeaks.
Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri was captured in November 2002. During interrogations by CIA officials, he reportedly confessed to injecting himself with chemicals to stop himself from being distracted by women, according to the Daily Mail.
