18. I would not call it cool

Choices were made. Osama made the choice to become public enemy number one, and apparently worked hard to maintain his status. I am pretty sure he made this decision knowing he would be killed if found, and this knowledge did not deter him in his choice.

The President through Seal team 6 simply delivered the fate Osama requested. It was not easy to do and it was an accomplishment.

The only path to end the war was over Osama's dead body, which was pretty much the way Osama wanted it. Ending the war is a far greater good, as fewer innocents will die. I am no fan of killing anyone, however a choice that spares innocents of more years of war is always laudable, but it is never "cool".
