U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon says the new details about Osama Bin Laden not being armed shouldn't distract us from the main fact that Bin Laden's death is a major victory for our country. Merkley isn't surprised that the details of Bin Laden's death have changed. Initially, the White House said Bin Laden was engaged in a firefight with the Navy SEALS, but today they revised the statement saying he was un-armed, and that he did not use his wife as a shield: “We share a collective sense of relief that he's no longer with us. I think a lot of details will shift mainly because the White House was working so hard to get some details out initially, but they hadn't thoroughly debriefed the members of the SEAL Team 6. Just yesterday the head of Intelligence and Briefing said they had just started the person by person debriefing.” Merkley says the atmosphere on Capital Hill is non-partisan and people in both parties are celebrating equally.
