Osama Bin Laden is Dead

Authorities at the White House have confirmed that the perpetrator behind the 9/11 bombings almost 10 years ago is indeed deceased. Celebrations in Washington and around the world started late last night when, even before 11:30pm, President Barack Obama made the announcement. International news media had been releasing the reports as they received them.

For some it is a day of celebration while for others there is a sense of reflection and relief. Chants of USA-USA were heard throughout the country as well as a Philies-Mets baseball game. At ground zero people came to give their respects and lay flowers at the construction site of the 9/11 memorial.

There is a sense however that this is not over. Al Qaeda is still very much active. Members such as Ayman al-Zawahiri (second only to Bin Laden on America’s most wanted terrorist list) are recruiting and training members through their crusade of hate-mongering and religion perversion. Some fear that retaliation attacks are imminent.

For now, let us celebrate that this man received what he deserved, not just for 9/11 but for all the innocent people he has killed throughout the world in his lifetime.
