I was very pleased today to hear the news that American special forces have killed Osama Bin Laden, the dreadful man behind the September 11 attacks, among other atrocities. US President Barack Obama made the announcement a couple hours ago.
My congratulations and thanks go out to Mr. Obama, the brave men and women who were responsible for making this happen, and former President George W. Bush who set the wheels in motion for this very important mission.
Not surprisingly, a large crowd gathered outside the White House to celebrate when the news broke.
Fox News put together a nearly six minute report on Bin Laden, his acts, and the effort to capture him. It’s well worth a look.
And former President George W. Bush made an important statement , which I would like to share with you.
This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.
Under the circumstances, I think this song is appropriate.
