President Obama’s late Sunday announcement that Osama bin Laden, the world’s most-wanted fugitive terrorist, had been killed in Pakistan by an American special forces unit marked a uniquely symbolic and long-sought victory against terrorism and a defining moment, as well, for the president and for the families of the victims who died on Sept. 11, 2001. It will not extinguish acts of terrorism by al-Qaida extremists and those on its fringes, but it makes good on this nation’s pledge of unrelenting pursuit of justice for the murders of innocents and their assaults on the United States and our citizens.
