Good morning, Netizens...


Osama bin Laden is dead, killed by a U.S. Navy Seal Team Six in Pakistan and, in keeping with Muslim tradition, his remains were buried at sea. No one has stated where bin Laden's body was buried.


"Justice has been done," President Barack Obama said in a dramatic announcement at the White House late Sunday night.


Former President George W. Bush, who was in office on the day of the attacks, issued a written statement hailing bin Laden's death as a momentous achievement. "The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done," he said.


A jubilant crowd of thousands gathered outside the White House as word spread of bin Laden's death. Hundreds more sang and waved American flags at Ground Zero in New York — where the twin towers that once stood as symbols of American economic power were brought down by bin Laden's hijackers 10 years ago.


Thus we bring to a close the life of the most sought-after terrorists around the world. Unfortunately I cannot say “rest in Peace” for in my opinion bin Laden did not deserve that accord. Of course, your opinion might differ.
