In announcing the news, President Obama said, "Justice has been done." I'm not entirely sure that's the case. There can never be anything approaching justice for the thousands of innocents slaughtered simply because they chose to go to work on that terrible day almost 10 years ago. This doesn't get them back. But it'll have to do.
We delude ourselves if we think the so-called war on terrorism is over. It isn't, and I doubt it ever will be. Terrorism remains a persistent threat. Humans retain an unfathomable ability to hate. One deranged man's death doesn't change any of this, and there are plenty of others out there perfectly willing to pick up this cretin's baton. At best, we've opened a new chapter in a book none of us ever wanted to read.
