Obama the tactician

John Pavlus:

How do you kill a concept? Common wisdom is that you can’t. Just ask Bruce Wayne.

Except we just did. Just ask Osama bin Laden. Or rather, ask the Obama administration, who skillfully and quite brilliantly designed a way to not just capture an enemy of the state, but effectively neutralize the symbol he embodied.

The entire post is worth the read, and I am curious what someone like Umberto Eco might add to the discussion.
