A bad guy who caused and could continue to cause pretty serious harm to a lot of people is dead because of the coordinated efforts of the governments of several countries.
It's not that important, but it is important.
Whether you think the wars were justified or not (in my opinion, they weren't), this is a separate issue. In fact, I'd say that it wasn't the war efforts that lead to this. It was intelligence, coordinated with other countries including Pakistan, and precision tactical forces, not broad-swath invasions, to find a criminal and take him out before he did more harm.
Unfortunately, the impact on this country isn't going to go away. It's hard to undo what has been done, and the TSA isn't going to loosen its grip on your shampoo bottles, politicians are still going to yammer on about the importance of security and justifying massive Defense budgets, and people are still going to think Muslims are evil.
