On Osama

Intriguing post from historian Gil Troy on the History News Network, reflecting on lessons he believes we can take from the career of Osama bin Laden and the events of 9/11:

I suspect, however, that this is an occasion more for solemn remembrance and rededication to the tasks still before us than for jubilation. We're still a world fractured by divisions in ideology, and so many, many lives have been lost to reach this point.
