So what does it mean?
The US media and the government are milking the publicity in the hope of winning a propaganda battle. Realistically, it means very little from a strategic perspective. Our foreign policy objectives have angered more people than they have appeased, and if anything, Bin Laden will be seen as a martyr on the other side. For all we know, he simply gave up and was waiting for the inevitable.

I dont think we even understand how "they" think
The pentagon released some videos seized from the Bin Laden raid. After watching this, and after thinking more about it, I conclude that we don't even consider the possibility that getting caught was no big deal for Bin Laden. Our multi billion dollar intelligence was being led on a wild goose chase for many years, and we are too arrogant to admit it.
