"square yards and hiding places in as little time as possible because there are civilians there."

Where is all the pressure coming from? What is this "little time as possible" of which you speak. Who cares if it takes one week or one year? It took us ten years to get OBL. We got him.

All this jazz about "risk minimization" and "little time as possible" is merely artificial constraints imposed for no other reason that to create fear and stress. As far as see it, that is exactly the same thing terrorists themselves do. Personally, I find our over-the-top response more terrifying than the initial terrorist event.
