Osama Bin Laden is Dead

Osama Bin Laden was wanted dead or alive. After almost 10 years since Sept. 11, he received a death sentence thanks to our brave troops, and America celebrates.

Last August, President Obama was briefed about a possible lead to Bin Laden hiding in a compound in Pakistan. Last week, it was determined there was enough credible intelligence to take action.

"Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan," said President Obama in a televised address to the nation. "A small team of American carried out the operation with extrodinary courage and capability. No American were harmed; they took care to avoid civilan casualties. After a fire fight, they killed Osama Bin Laden and took custody of his body.

Jubilant crowds gathered in celebration in front of the White House and at Ground Zero in New York City, waving American flags, chanting "USA! USA!" and singing "The Star Spangled Banner" and "God Bess America."

Tonight is a historic moment in American history.
