Statements On Bin Laden's Death

WASHINGTON D.C.— President Obama announced in a public address late Sunday night that he has spoken with Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari and both agreed that Osama bin Laden’s death is good for both nations.

On May 1, President Obama declared that it is vital for Pakistan to join the U.S. in the continued fight against Al-Quaeda. The president mentioned that efforts have not ended with the death of bin Laden.

Celebrations broke out nation-wide after the announcement of bin Laden’s death, including in front of the White House where President Obama made his declaration as well as at Ground Zero in New York where the World Trade Center was located.

“The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done,” said President George W. Bush in a statement.

Osama bin Laden, 54, was pronounced dead earlier today after U.S. troops completed a mission as a result of an alleged lead the president had received weeks prior. The Al-Quaeda leader was captured in a compound after a 10-year manhunt in Abbottabad, Pakistan, near Islamabad, where he was killed along with other family members.

President Bill Clinton, in a statement, also commented on the event saying “I congratulate the President, the National Security team and the members of our armed forces on bringing Osama bin Laden to justice after more than a decade of murderous al-Qaida attacks.”

President Obama highlighted the sense of justice achieved by the capture and death that bin Laden’s death brings, especially for the families who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001.

Bin Laden's remains are apparently planned to be buried at sea.
