Osama Bin Laden Killed by U.S. Forces
After ten years of being number one on the FBI's most wanted list, Osama Bin Laden has finally been killed. Bin Laden is held largely responsible for planning the terrorist attacks of September 11, and he is a leader in the terrorist group Al Queda. Bin Laden was thought to have been hiding in a primitive cave somewhere in the middle east, but he was actually killed in a large house near a major city. President Barack Obama addressed the nation shortly after the news of Bin Laden's death was released, and it brings a feeling of triumph to many Americans to know the man responsible for the worst terrorist attack in American history has finally paid for his actions. I remember being sent home from school the day of the attacks, but I was too young to understand what was really going on. Personally I am glad that Bin Laden has been killed, because I hate terrorists and I hope this sends a message to them that if they try to harm the U.S. then they will be killed.
