Marc Armbinder was a pretty good Atlantic politics blogger. He’s a lot better over at National Journal, if this piece on how the bin Laden killing went down is any indication at all. I could go through the piece line by line and praise all the writerly flourishes that are thrown in as Armbinder gives a level of analysis and context that no other reporter cames close to matching today. But you only need to read one sentence to understand what I mean:
“One of the dead was Osama bin Laden, done in by a double tap — boom, boom — to the left side of his face.”
Here‘s the rest of the piece, which really is worth reading in entirety.
