On Sunday, October 10, 2010, the Washington Post published an op-ed written by Jack Devine in which he advocates for a renewed focus on finding and capturing Osama bin Laden. Mr. Devine suggests that not only would such an achievement deliver a significant psychological blow to Al Qaeda and the extremist groups it inspired, but also it would provide the US with a reasonable justification for exiting Afghanistan. Moreover, capturing bin Laden would serve to advance the post-9/11 healing of the American psyche.
