Scotland Yard gave President Obama the codename of "chalaque" during his visit to Britain. The Daily Mail says it's a derogatory term in Punjabi. Asra Nomani's grandmother confirms it's not a nice term in Urdu or Hindi either.
What does America's best-known atheist think about the death of Osama bin Laden?
For years, Osama bin Laden has been portrayed as the world’s worst terrorist – mastermind of the deaths of thousands of people, including nearly 3,000 on US soil in 9/11. Since US Navy SEALs killed him last week, however, the image of the Al Qaeda leader – now a martyr to his followers – has taken several calculated hits. Here are three attempts by the Obama administration to recast the perception of Mr. bin Laden.
The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for an attack avenging bin Laden's death today. But local police doubt that the Taliban was directly involved, or that revenge was the main motive.
The release of more information seized from Osama bin Laden's compound revealed that he thought only another 9/11-scale attack would force the US out of the Arab world.

The US is now waging a troop-heavy counterinsurgency to win Afghan hearts and minds. But the bin Laden raid has boosted critics, who say the Afghanistan war should involve smaller forces and a greater reliance on targeted strikes.
President Obama authorized US troops to fight Pakistani forces if they interfered during the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound, highlighting the poor state of the US-Pakistan relationship.
Analysts see the Pakistan prime minister's speech as an attempt to counter popular anger and outflank the political opposition regarding the US raid on Osama bin Laden's compound.
