Osama bin Laden Confirmed Dead!
On Sunday May 1, 2011, President Obama stated officially to the nation on his public televised speech address that the result of Osama's death was caused by a U.S. operation that was launched in Abbottabad, Pakistan, agaisnt a compound where Osama was known to be hiding, based by U.S. Intelligence after a firefigth, a small group of U.S. American forces killed Osama and seized his body, the President confirmed.
What Obama said in his Speech
Here are some parts that were really poignant that really made me think when Obama stated them:
"Tonight I can report to the American people and the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden." Right here Obama stated to everyone how they killed Osama.
In another part of Obama's speech he specifically said that "Justice has been done," as an emotional symbol of the terrorists attack that happened in 9/11. When I heard this I thought well it's true justice has finnally been done because that is what they had to do kill Osama because he was the one responsible for creating the terrorists attacks.
Another interesting thing Obama mentioned in his speech was when he said "that American's did not choose to fight agaisnt Al Qaeda, but rather it just came to them," by itself they did not start it because they felt like it or because they wanted to. What I also liked about his speech was that he did not forget to mention his unconditional praise for the U.S. military and intelligence professionals for aimlessly and tirelessly working to gain what they had planned. He also added with much sincerity to the families of 9/11 victims, that the U.S. "has never forgotten your loss." It really made me see that what happened on that day is something that will be remembered in history for years and centuries to come.
But other than what he overall stated in his speech is what really bought me back to that day when the terrorist attacks happened was when Obama mentioned:
"Tonight, let us think back to the sense of unity that prevailed on 9/11, I know that it has, at times, frayed. Yet today's achievements is a testament to the gretaness of our country and the determination of the American people." This part of the speech really gave me a sense at how great America is and how much success we can contribute to the world.
