After almost a decade of anger and fear, America rejoice Monday at the termination of Osama bin Laden, the terror brain at the rear the horrific 9/11 attacks. Navy SEALs who killed the world's most-wanted terrorist held a trove of al-Qaida documents to pore over, and President Barack Obama laid plans to visit New York's ground zero.
Bin Laden, killed in a passionate firefight in a daring raid at his prepared hideout in Pakistan, was hunted down based on in sequence first gleaned years ago from prisoner at secret CIA prison sites in Eastern Europe, officials disclose.
His body was speedily taken away for burial at sea, except not before a DNA match was done to prove his identity. A U.S. official said there also was photos presentation bin Laden with the fatal wound above his left eye, a firing that tore away part of his skull. The photos were not without delay released.
