Throwing Down the Water wonders about the meaning behind the fact that Osama bin Laden’s capture was tweeted, saying: “It is still a victor-led world. History is still being written by those in power. The difference is that the victor knows it and so must…be ever so slightly more accountable to the fact that someone out there probably knows exactly what happened. And just might have the electricity, internet, and English, to let the world know.”
