All I need to know:

Three dead pirates and one live American.

I am very happy to praise this president for this success.

Kudos to the United States military (still the baddest bunch of white hats on the planet).

Kudos to the President for employing the tools in his arsenal.

UPDATE. Another thought: this strikes me as a big political win for the President--domestically, of course, but also as a defining moment on the international stage.

His Statement to the World: we love you and we want to be your friend--but, if you push too far beyond the bounds of civilized behavior, we will shoot you in the head.
