"As America's morbid celebrations over the killing of Osama bin Laden begin to fade, we are left with a new landscape of risks -- and opportunities -- created by his slaying at the hands of a U.S. Special Forces team at a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. ... If the Post's neoconservative editors get their way and the U.S. military is officially transformed into a roving assassination squad -- a global 'Murder, Inc.' -- it may turn out that future historians will view this as bin Laden's final victory."
