Nope, just forgot to address this point earlier.

Agreed. That being said, I don't mind waiting just a little while, given that Bin Laden (unlike anyone in the Hussein family) is a hero to millions of Muslims.

Also, there is already too much media fanfare surrounding JSOC commander William McRaven. Time just put out an article calling him, "The Man Who Got bin Laden", which is slightly inaccurate (he deployed the team, wasn't leading the team or pulling the trigger), but is sure to make McRaven into a high-priority target for the jihadis.
