Osama bin Laden is dead
According to CNN and a number of other sources, Osama bin Laden is dead.
The ramifications of that revelation remain to be seen, but there’s little doubt that the fact the terrorist most associated with al Qaeda — the group responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York — is great news for the Barack Obama administration.
George Bush never could eliminate bin Laden under his watch whereas the terrorist icon was apparently eliminated while Obama was in office. Yes, the President will make political hay with that and who can blame him?
Of course, you’ll have to go elsewhere to find out the complete details on this breaking story as we don’t have the resources here at First Arkansas News to do such a story justice. Still, it’s well worth mentioning to our readers and we’ll watch Obama’s press conference about this even like everyone else.
