68. It resolves one thing
No President was ever going to bring our troops back from the middle east if this man was still alive and free. Anything less than this would have been seen as failure the moment of the next terrorist attack on the US anywhere. The political consequences of such failure would have been too great to risk, so no President would have risked it. Now that he is dead, we can tenably declare victory and bring the troops home.

Terrorism will still exist, but it will be someone else doing it. This is what matters, politically speaking.

I am no fan of any of this, but once we went in, we were never leaving without this guy in custody or dead.
