Bin Laden is Dead
President Barack Obama announced on Sunday night that United States Special Forces have killed Osama bin Laden and taken custody of his body. In his announcement, Obama said:
Let us think back to the sense of unity that prevailed on 9/11. I know that it has at times frayed. Yet today's achievement is a testament to the greatness of our country.
Hundreds of people chanted and applauded outside the White House. But soon after the President spoke, the U.S. State Department issued a world-wide alert of "enhanced potential for anti-American violence" due to the death of bin Laden.
