One decade later.
Countless innocent lives, and killed servicemen and women.
Osama bin Laden, mastermind of the Sept. 11th attacks on the United States, instigator of one of the worst conflicts in American history, has been killed.
Multiple sources within the intelligence community and the White House are reporting that Osama Bin Laden is confirmed dead. Apparently, Osama bin Laden was killed by a missile strike just over a week ago.
President Barack Obama is expected to make a statement this evening on the matter.
I can honestly say that this is the only time I’ve felt relief and or some measure of happiness to hear that someone is dead. I don’t take pride in saying that at all. It is just the reality of the situation. Some measure of justice, and some measure of closure seems to finally have been achieved with bin Laden’s death.
I hope that these reports are true and are accurate, and if they are, I hope that this bring some closure or satisfaction to the victims of 9/11 and the many men and women who sacrificed their lives as a result of his actions (you can argue the true cause of the war that you want, but his actions were the match to start the fire).
