On bin Laden's death


Greensburg Daily News

Greensburg — An almost audible collective sigh of relief could be heard minutes before midnight Sunday as U.S. President Barack Obama announced the death of Osama bin Laden, leader of the terrorist organization al-Qaida and the mastermind behind the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks against targets in the United States.

As the president spoke, it felt good to know the killer of so many people around the world had been removed by a special op's team comprised of U.S. Navy Seals.

"America can do whatever it sets its mind to," President Obama said Sunday night.

It was good to be reminded that indeed it can.
