Read the Times obituary to find descriptions of how Bin Laden was seen by the West (“elevated to the realm of evil in the American imagination once reserved for dictators like Hitler and Stalin”) as opposed to how he was seen by “much of the Islamic world” (“a hero … as much a myth as a man”). Yet, according to an article on Bin Laden’s legacy, although “Osama bin Laden was hero, sheikh, even leader to some” in the Arab world a decade ago, he has now been “reduced to a footnote in the revolutions and uprisings remaking a region that he and his men had struggled to understand.”
