Few Americans will ever forget where they were on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, when evil appeared out of a cloudless sky and changed our lives forever. And just as surely, millions will long remember the night of May 1, 2011, when President Barack Obama broke into Sunday evening TV programming and told the world that Osama bin Laden — mastermind of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks that slaughtered nearly 3,000 innocent souls at New York City’s World Trade Center; the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.; and in a field in Shanksville, Pa. — was dead.
With the death of bin Laden, the U.S. closes the book on the world’s most wanted terrorist. In the new issue of OK!, we check out how a team of Navy SEALs invaded the terrorist’s million-dollar home and ended his cruel reign. Plus: America rejoices! How the country came together to applaud the long-awaited news.
