THE EUROS ARE STILL FRETTING ABOUT IT BEING AN ASSASSINATION...:

Raid on bin Laden compound avenged CIA deaths (MATT APUZZO and ADAM GOLDMAN, 5/29/11, Associated Press)

For a small cadre of CIA veterans, the death of Osama bin Laden was more than just a national moment of relief and closure. It was also a measure of payback, a settling of a score for a pair of deaths, the details of which have remained a secret for 13 years.

Tom Shah and Molly Huckaby Hardy were among the 44 U.S. Embassy employees killed when a truck bomb exploded outside the embassy compound in Kenya in 1998.

Though it has never been publicly acknowledged, the two were working undercover for the CIA. In al-Qaida's war on the United States, they are believed to be the first CIA casualties.


..and we've moved on to it being mere revenge?
