People gathered outside President George W. Bush’s home in North Dallas last night on word that the United States had killed Osama bin Laden at a mansion in Pakistan. WFAA, the ABC affiliate in Dallas, sent a reporter to the scene.
But not everyone was there to cheer the President. This AP photo shows a rain soaked sign that said, “Winning! Obama – 1 Bush – 0”
President Bush issued this statement last night:
Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that American forces killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of the al Qaeda network that attacked America on September 11, 2001. I congratulated him and the men and women of our military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to this mission. They have our everlasting gratitude. This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.
Here is President Bush giving his famous bullhorn speech at Ground Zero three days after the 9/11 attacks.
