After being convicted of crimes againts humanity by an Iraqi civil court, a world court deputy told the chief marshall that the wrong man was convicted, and that the Osama bin Laden is still a free man, with warrants out, and “wanted” signs still posted. “I thought I remembered something about the world being changed after 9/11,” the deputy said later “and the rest got a little fuzzy.”

In spite of this, there was tremendous cheer in the aftermath of the execution, coming in the build-up to the New Year’s celebration in the United States, when the year’s highlights are often reviewed on newsreels and year-end photo essays. “Maybe it was important that we put this behind us,” the deputy said later, “and move forward on to the next lynching.”
