Transcript ■ P:> Justice for the families of the 9/11 victims came when the news of Osama Bin Laden's death was announced on May 1st. Wikimedia Commons ! AN AMERICAN VICTORY The world rejoices as terrorist falls at the hands of the U.S. military By Patricia Estrada Victory came for the families of the victims of 9/11 and the American people as President Barack Obama announced on May 1st the death of al-Qaida mastermind, Osama Bin Laden. "Justice has been done," Obama said in a televised news conference from the White House. "The death of Bin Laden marks the most significant achievement to date in our nation's struggle to defeat al-Qaida." Thousands of people took to the streets and to their Facebook and Twitter accounts to celebrate the news. Outside the White House, Americans sang the "The Star-Spangled Banner" and "We Are the Champions." Many others gathered at Ground Zero and proudly waved American Flags. Former President George W. Bush, who launched the war against terrorism, addressed the news through his Facebook page. "I congratulated him (Obama) and the men and women of our military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to this mission," Bush wrote. "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." Bin Laden was killed after a gun battle with Navy SEALs and CIA paramilitary forces at a compound in the city of Abbottabad, Pakistan. His body was later buried at sea, following Islamic traditions, which calls for a body to be buried within 24 hours. U.S. officials said that DNA tests were done to confirm his identity, and that the results revealed with 99 percent accuracy the body was Bin Laden's. "The world is a better and more just place now that Osama Bin Laden is no longer in it," Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz, said in a statement. "I hope the families of the victims of the September 11 attacks will sleep easier tonight and every night hence knowing that justice has been done." According to reports, Bin Laden was in the company of his sons, two of his most trusted messengers and an unidentified woman, which reports later said Bin Laden used as a shield, in his $1 million property. All were killed in the attack. According to U.S. officials, the three-story compound where Bin Laden was found had few outside windows, a 12-to-18 foot outer wall with barbed wire and other intense security measures. Officials feared that after the news of Bin Laden's death, his followers would turn the terrorist into a martyr and that retaliation attacks would ensue from al-Qaida or other Islamic extremist groups. "In the wake of this operation, there may be a heightened threat to the U.S. homeland," a U.S. official said to CNN. "The U.S. is taking every possible precaution. The State Department has sent advisories to embassies worldwide and has issued a travel ban for Pakistan." [54] nside the Pride
