White House Announces Death Of Bin Laden
Posted by Tommy Garrett on May 1, 2011 - 9:47:31 PM

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Late Sunday night the White House announced the death of Osama bin Laden, the terrorist mastermind behind the September 11, 2001 attacks on the U.S. His death came months before the 10th anniversary of the devastating attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Virginia.

Since the attacks, bin Laden has been in hiding, with most military and intelligence officials claiming publicly that they believed the man who was named on the FBI’s Most Wanted Fugitives List since 1999 was in the mountain region between the nations of Pakistan and Afghanistan. However, bin Laden was reportedly found and killed in a mansion inside the nation of Pakistan.

With Osama bin Laden’s attack on the U.S., it created a global war on terror, which became the central point of the Bush (43) administration’s foreign policy handlings, with President Barack Obama ignoring personal and political attacks by the Republican Party, while his intelligence and the U.S. military divisions along with special operations in coordination with the CIA to continue to hunt down the man, who not only caused the 9/11 attacks but praised the hijackers as heroes of Islam.

Reporting from the nation’s Capitol, Osama bin Laden, the world’s most wanted terrorist, was killed in Pakistan as the result of a U.S. military operation, President Obama announced to the nation Sunday night. The man who headed Al Qaeda claimed more deaths than the almost 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001 attacks, but also more than 200 people were killed in U.S. embassy attacks in both Kenya and Tanzania. Bin Laden was also behind the bombing attack in 1993 of the World Trade Center. Al Qaeda has also claimed responsibility for many other attacks surrounding the U.S. power around the world.

Bin Laden broke with Saudi leaders over their beliefs regarding Israel. He was eventually denounced by his family and gave up citizenship.

The announcement by President Obama from the East Room of the White House came eight years to the day after President Bush announced the end of major combat operations in Iraq, the so-called “Mission Accomplished” speech from the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln.

Members of Congress were briefed on the news by Vice President Joe Biden throughout the weekend, according to government officials.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, related the news to mourners at a memorial service for political consultant Kam Kuwata. Feinstein said Obama was announcing it on TV as she spoke. However, she announced the news well before Obama began to speak.

Bin Laden, 54, was a member of a wealthy Saudi family, and was publicly denounced by some relatives once he was placed on the U.S. list of most wanted terrorist.
