Osama Bin Laden - #2863 - U.S. Naval Academy Goes Wild After Hearing Seals Killed bin Laden - The Blaze (2) U.S. Forces Kill Osama bin Laden - Wall Street Journal (3) Bin Laden Dead - Heritage Foundation


U.S. Naval Academy goes Wild After Hearing Seals Killed bin Laden - The Blaze The midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy reacted with wild “U-S-A!” chants after hearing that it was six Navy SEALS who killed bin Laden. They eventually brought out their mascot, who body surfed among the crowd: Be sure to watch around the 2 minute mark.

U.S. Forces Kill Osama bin Laden - Wall Street Journal - Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, a mastermind of the largest terrorist attack in American history, was killed Sunday in Pakistan in a military operation after the U.S. learned of his location. The death capped a manhunt of a decade for the architect of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that left nearly 3,000 people dead and dramatically altered U.S. foreign policy and the nation's sense of security. "Justice has been done," President Barack Obama said from the White House, where he made the dramatic announcement late Sunday. "The United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda and a terrorist who is responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women and children."

Bid Laden Dead - Heritage Foundation - Justice has been done. Nearly 10 years since the 9/11 attacks that left more than 3,000 Americans dead, Osama bin Laden was killed by a small team of U.S. military personnel operating under the authority of the Central Intelligence Agency. We first want to congratulate the men and women of our military and intelligence communities, past and present, who worked tirelessly across three Administrations to bring ultimate justice to the man who killed so many. The war on terror, though, is not over. Bin Laden’s death is the most significant victory in the war on terror since the 9/11 attacks, more important than death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in 2006. Bin Laden’s elimination vindicates U.S. strategy in the region, started under President George W. Bush, and it will be seen as a major success for the United States, showing the world that America will remain committed to hunting down its enemies as long it takes. But while America should take great satisfaction in this tremendous achievement, the United States must remain vigilant against a terrorist threat that is not yet vanquished. Terrorists are trying to attack us both at home and abroad; with 38 terrorist plots foiled since 9/11, these attempts will certainly continue, if not get worse.  Read more.........
