A late-night announcement made from the White House’s East Room on Sunday set the world aflutter, and news of the death of Osama bin Laden quickly spread across the globe. This after top officials met in the Situation Room and in real time watched the events unfold. I can't help but noticed the intense looks on their faces.
President Barack Obama announced Sunday night that bin Laden had been killed and his body taken into U.S. custody in Pakistan.
Word of the death of Al Qaeda’s leader quickly spread, and politicians, celebrities and athletes began releasing statements while crowds gathered across the country in celebration of bin Laden’s death.
