President Obama announces US has killed Osama Bin Laden

At 11:35 p.m. on May 1, 2011, President Barack Obama made a dramatic television appearance to announce that bin Laden, whose capture or killing was the top priority he had given to CIA chief Leon Panetta, was dead. The leader of al-Qaeda, Obama said, had been tracked by way of intelligence sources in August 2010 and, earlier on the first of May, a team of U.S. operatives found him in a compound in Pakistan, in the town of Abbottabad, 150 kilometers north of Islamabad and the home of Pakistani Army's training academy. Not in the increasingly militant heartland of Punjab, not too far from the unsettled frontier and tribal areas, it was a peaceful, quiet patch - the perfect place to hide until May 1.
