The President said Bin Laden was killed Sunday in a compound deep in Pakistan, and his body is in U.S. custody. “Justice is done,” Obama said.

Bin Laden was “a terrorist who was responsible for the murder of thousands of American men, women and children,” Obama said, and “His demise should be welcomed by all who believe in peace and human dignity.”

Recalling the attacks of September 11th, which the terrorist leader took responsibility for and sparked a decade-long war, Obama said the United States never wavered in its commitment to pursue Bin Laden and bring him to justice. Addressing the families of the victims of the attacks, Obama said “the images of 9/11 are seared into our national memory… nearly 3,000 citizens taken from us, leaving a gaping hole in our hearts.”

Obama said no Americans were hurt in the “targeted operation,” which killed Bin Laden, and U.S. forces “took care” to avoid civilian casualties. He added there is “no doubt” Al Qaeda will continue to attempt to attack the United States, and the country must remain vigilant.
