Osama bin Laden is dead
May 1, 2011
Nearly a decade after the September 11 attacks, Osama bin Laden is dead and the United States says it has his body.
A U.S. military action conducted in Pakistan resulted in the death of bin Laden, President Barack Obama said in a special address to the nation Sunday night.
“Justice has been done,” the President said in an announcement from the White House.
The death of bin Laden is the culmination of a decade long manhunt for the terrorist leader that was the mastermind behind the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on America that left 3,000 people dead and changed national security.
