A Professor of History and Political Science at Central Oregon Community College had a personal reaction to the death of Osama Bin Laden. He lived in New Jersey on September 11th and watched the Twin Towers fall down.  He says he felt a sense of satisfaction on the news of Bin Laden. Professor Alan Eisenberg says while this is a significant time for our country emotionally; people shouldn't expect a big policy change on military action in the Middle East.  “People should not have any expectations that this is going to be any dramatic end or change. There is a certain degree of satisfaction and closure, but I do not expect U.S. policy to be affected dramatically by this event of taking out this very evil person."   Professor Eisenberg has spent decades studying the Middle East.  He says Bin Laden's death may weaken Al Quada initially because new recruits will realize that they can't hide from the enemy if someone like Bin Laden can be killed.
