U.S. forces have killed Osama Bin Laden. Sunday night, around 8:00 p.m., the White House releases a statement that officials have positively identified the body of Osama Bin Laden, who was killed in a military operation today (Sunday). The President addressed the nation around 8:30 p.m., speaking the words many have waited 10 years to hear:  "Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world, that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama Bin Laden, the leader of Al Qaeda, the terrorist who's responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men women and children. It was nearly 10 years ago, that a bright September day was darkened by the worst attack on American history.  The images of 9-11 are seared into our national memory." The President went on to talk about how the operation went about searching and finding Bin Laden and ultimately killing him. Fox News reports that a crowd assembled outside of the White House cheering U.S.A. after the news broke.
