Osama Bin Laden Dead !


A decade after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, Osama bin Laden is dead. A flood of questions now begins. What next, for terrorism itself and for U.S. counterterrorism policy?
President Obama announced Sunday night, in a televised address to the nation. His death was the result of a U.S. operation launched today in Abbottabad, Pakistan, against a compound where bin Laden was believed to be hiding, according to U.S. intelligence. After a firefight, a small team of American forces killed bin Laden and took possession of his body, the president said.
There was relief and rejoicing, apprehension and anger. But although the death ofOsama bin Laden unleashed a gamut of emotions among ordinary Afghans, few here believe that his demise signals an end to a grinding, nearly decade-long war.
Bin Laden's demise comes 9 years, 7 months and 20 days after the 2001 9/11 attacks.
“After a fire fight, they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body,” the president said. “No Americans were harmed. They took care to avoid civilian casualties.”
