Countered terrorism experts claim that while Bin Laden himself was not a great fan of the relationship between Iran and Al-Qaeda, many other Al-Qaeda leaders supported the relations. Now with Bin Laden out of the picture Iran is likely to increase its strong hold on yet another terror organization.
The death of Bin Laden might not mean the end of Al-Qaeda but it's certainly another boost to Iran which is already benefiting from the unrest in the Middle East.
Contrary to leftwing fantasy, Obama's okay on killing Osama does not end the debate on foreign policy. The real mistakes are still being made, and the earlier ones are coming home to roost.
Even the left and the most notorious of the Jewicidals like the sniveling Jeff Goldberg over at the Atlantic are finally admitting how wrong they were on Iran.
They can try to blame it on Bibi and say he waited too long, but the leftwingers across the world made removing Iran's nukes and mullahs impossible. Whether they like it or not, this shows they were wrong.
'Netanyahu Waited Too Long To Strike Iran' by Jeffrey Goldberg May 11 2011
Aluf Benn with some interesting analysis. Read the whole thing, but here's one excerpt:
In his upcoming speech to the U.S. Congress, Netanyahu will reiterate his warning that Israel is being threatened with destruction, and as such, it should not be pressured to withdraw from essential territories of the West Bank and transfer them to the hands of the "villains." Hints that he will dispatch the air force on a "never again" mission to Iran if Israel is pushed into the corner are meant to deter Obama from imposing an Israeli-Palestinian settlement.
But the threat sounds hollow. The internal disputes in Israel, concerns about a destructive war of attrition and uncertainty about how Egypt will respond are all serving as brakes on the aircrafts' wheels. Netanyahu waited two years, only to discover that now, it is much harder for him to strike.
Last year (and the year before, in fact) it seemed likely to a range of Israeli officials and analysts that Netanyahu would make a move against Iran. But now there is a widespread feeling that Netanyahu is paralyzed on all fronts, including and especially the negotiations front. The looming question: Can Israel afford this sort of paralysis at the top?
And who is Goldberg citing? The most notoriously anti-Israel, left-wing newspaper in Israel, Haaretz. These dangerous clowns made a strike against Iran impossible.
