A view from my side.
September 11, 2001 united our country. It didn’t matter if you were a Republican or a Democrat. An evangelical or an atheist. An attack on our soil united our country. Support for the President and our response was as close to unanimous as is possible in a democracy like ours. Shortly after, the hunt was on for the mastermind of it all, Osama bid Laden. The hunt ended yesterday with the death of bin Laden during an American attack on the compound in which he was hiding.
It took close to 10 years. It costs thousands of lives and billions of dollars. Was it worth the wait and the cost? Yes, it was. Some things are worth the cost, no matter how high. This was one of those things.
