Osama Bin Laden

In case you are looking for more news on Bin Laden’s death, here is the CNN story. The post includes several videos of where he died, a clip of Obama’s speech, and New Yorkers celebrating at Ground Zero.

Here is the transcript of President Obama’s speech.

The CBS story may answer Luke’s question:

Security at “strategic places in Pakistan has been beefed up as a precaution against any retaliation to news of Osama bin Laden’s death”, a senior Pakistani security official told CBS News early on Monday. “If he (bin Laden) is really dead, there will be attempts to seek revenge,” said the official who spoke to CBS News on condition of anonymity.

Former State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said on Twitter: “#BinLaden’s death does not eliminate the threat from #alQaeda, but it is hard to see anyone playing the same organizational role he did.”

Even though Bin Laden has been killed, the military could justify staying in Afganistan to defeat the remaining alQaeda members.

In the BBC article Obituary: Osama Bin Ladin, the author finishes with an important point: “To his supporters, Bin Laden was a fighter for freedom against the US and Israel, not, as he was to many in the West, a terrorist with the blood of thousands of people on his hands.”
