Osama bin Laden dead

Just before I was about to go to bed on the 1st of May, 2011, a friend had pointed to a Wall Street Journal headline that said Osama bin Laden was dead. I could not find any reference anywhere else to back it up. Then about an hour later, NBC was airing President Obama's speech informing us that Osama bin Laden was indeed dead, killed in a firefight in Abbottadad, Pakistan and that his body is in US military custody.

Take a moment to remember the lives of Americans taken by Al-Qaeda during 9/11 and in the Middle East wars of Afghanistan and Iraq. Know that our lives will be forever different after those attacks. But take solace that the mastermind of such evil is now dead. And here is to those that have served in the military and those that serve now.
