Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks that killed thousands of Americans, was slain Sunday in his luxury hideout in Pakistan in a firefight with U.S.forces, ending a manhunt that spanned a frustrating decade.
"Justice has been done," President Barack Obama declared late Sunday as crowds formed outside the White House to celebrate. Many sang"The Star-Spangled Banner" and "We Are the Champions."
Hundreds more waved American flags at ground zero in New York — where the twin towers that once stood as symbols of American economic powerwere brought down by bin Laden's hijackers 10 years ago.
Bin Laden, 54, was killed after a gunbattle with Navy SEALs and CIA paramilitary forces at a compound in the city of Abbottabad. Hewas shot in the left eye, NBC News' Savannah Guthrie reported citing an unnamed U.S. official.
In a background briefing with journalists, U.S. officials suggested that Bin Laden opened fire onthe American forces before he was killed.
The team returned to Afghanistan with bin Laden's body, U.S. officials said. NBC News reported that bin Laden was later buried at sea.
Islamictradition calls for a body to be buried within 24 hours, but finding a country willing to accept the remains of the world's most wanted terrorist would have been difficult, a senior administrationofficial said.
As we approach next year's presidential elections, the chances of President Barack Obama being ousted by a rival from either side of the political divide are low. He’s verypopular among the U.S citizens, specially for the recent events of the killing of the Al Qaeda leader.
And now USA have to focus in an attack that may occur in a close future because of an Al Qaedarevenge, so USA should train more army for protection, reinforce the airports security, specially international flight, control any type of item that enters or get close the president house.
