Bag’s Take-Away:

Although I don’t crop as a rule, the importance of the viral/historic White House “bin Ladin raid” photo deserves an exception. Key leaders with everything on the line. #2 Hillary Clinton.

Bag’s Take-Away:
Cell phone photo from firefight at bin Laden compound. Looks like soldier (right) near wall between 2 explosions with copter, low, just beyond.
(Beyond the drama, great example of what’s wrong with photo galleries. Who shot this? Who released this? At what stage was this? Etc.)
(photo: Reuters caption (via MSNBC): The compound is seen in flames after it was attacked late on May 1 in this still image taken from cellphone video footage.)

Bag’s Take-Away:

As opposed to … Shock-and-Awe missile strike on Hussein — a sad replacement for Tora Bora, anyway; Blackhawk Down; and failed U.S. Iran Embassy rescue…

The clean-and-simple picture Obama’s predecessors could only wish for…

Tidying up the loose ends in  Abbottabad. (US blows up it’s own helicopter after successful mission.)
