Here's a link to a thought-provoking article entitled Why bin Laden Lost, just published on Bloomberg.com for BusinessWeek: http://buswk.co/mRuSnm
The subtitle is
Al Qaeda's leader died because he was outgunned. He lost because he was wrong.
On the whole, I disagree with the article. Sure, there are good points. But the premise is that bin Laden lost because he was instigating to a grand scheme, and the US won because our founding document lacks any aspiration beyond the freedom to pursuit happiness. Conclusion: ObL is dead, so let's take a day trip or go to the spa. What a morally bankrupt and bleak way to look at the world and the gift of life.
