Hiding out in the mountainous regions along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, just wasn’t enough. Sources say, the U.S. has possession of his body.
Two senior counterterrorism officials confirmed to the Associated Press that bin Laden was killed in Pakistan last week. One said bin Laden was killed in a ground operation, not by a Predator drone. Both said the operation was based on U.S. intelligence, and both said the U.S. is in possession of bin Laden’s body.
We all remember where we were on 9/11, when we heard the news. I was actually packing to move into my brand new home, my husband and I had built. I remember, standing in the kitchen, almost dropping a glass I was wrapping when the first plane struck. It’s hard to forget crying for the people who were killed, and their families. The memory of explaining to my daughters that evening what had happened. As an American, that day hit me hard. As a veteran, I understood the President’s reaction to it, and felt something had to be done.
So, here we are, 1 May, 2011. America has received the news it has been waiting ten years to hear. Where were you on 9/11? What’s your opinion on today’s news?
