Paraphrasing Emperor Julius Caesar following his victory over Pharnaces II ("Veni, Vedi, Vici", meaning "I came, I saw, I conquered."), US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, chortling before CBS cameras, reacted to Muammar Gaddafi’s death and the end of the war on Libya by declaring "We came, we saw, he died!" [1]

[1In the context of U.S. Army culture, the pun bears the distinct connotation that Muammar Gaddafi was personally the target. In fact, a misspelled version "Vini, Vidi, Vici" happens to be the motto for the US Army Sniper School in Fort Benning, Georgia.
