I just read your editorial, “Fear of reprisal shouldn’t hide proof of victory” and have to disagree.
You praised the president for his decision to authorize the raid as opposed to a bombing and you are right. His was surely a serious decision but, in the end, a no brainer. Certainly, the military and other agencies offered a professional judgment of success without which no commander in chief would have given the go. Still he had to decide and good for him for doing so.
