WASHINGTON – Osama bin Laden, the glowering mastermind behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks that killed thousands of Americans, was slain in his luxury hideout in Pakistan early Monday in a firefight with U.S. forces, ending a manhunt that spanned a frustrating decade.
"Justice has been done," President Barack Obama said in a dramatic announcement at the White House.
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.
Petikan daripada news kat yahoo. Apa sudah jadi? Dah sepuluh tahun cantiik je, tiba - tiba semuanya jumpa semudah tu dan dibunuh. Ah, mengarutlah semua tu. Propaganda itu memang tidak boleh dielak. Lihat saja dalam movie - movie. Mana ada kerajaan yang benar? Semuanya penuh dengan dogma kepentingan mereka sendiri. Persetan semua.
Apa tugas kita?
Itu soalan yang perlu dijawab lagi ke? Pada aku, biarlah dengan cerita Osama atau siapa sahaja yang diragui kewujudannya itu. Yang penting, Kita haruslah terus berpegang pada AGAMA ISLAM yang kita pegang di dalam hati dengan sekukuhnya. Kita ubah apa yang silap, kita betulkan mana yang salah agar kita lebih kuat pada hari esok dan seterusnya.
ya, itu memang penting kerana ia yang menentukan kesejahteraan negara cuma kalau kita mahu melibatkan diri dengannya, bersihkan hatimu dan ikhlaskan dirimu demi mencari keredhaanNYA, bukan kerana duit atau pangkat idaman semua.
sudahla cukup dengan ku membebel. aku sertakan copy paste dari berita di yahoo. Fikikanlah sendiri.
The stunning end to the world's most widely-watched manhunt came just months before the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Centers and Pentagon, orchestrated by al-Qaida, that killed nearly 3,000 people.
The attacks a decade ago seemed to come out of nowhere, even though al-Qaida had previously struck American targets overseas.
The terrorists hijacked planes, flew one of them into one of Manhattan's Twin Towers — and, moments later, into the other one. Both buildings collapsed, trapping thousands inside and also claiming the lives of firefighters and others who had rushed to help them.
A third plane slammed into the Pentagon, defacing the symbol of America's military night. Officials have speculated that the fourth plane had been heading for the U.S. Capitol or perhaps even the White House when it crashed in Pennsylvania.
Based on statements given by U.S. detainees, intelligence officials have known for years that bin Laden trusted one al-Qaida courier in particular, and they believed he might be living with him in hiding. In November, intelligence officials found out where he was living, a huge fortified compound. It was surrounded by walls as high as 18 feet high, topped with barbed wire. There were two security gates and no phone or Internet running into the house.
Intelligence officials believed the $1 million home was custom-built to harbor a major terrorist. CIA experts analyzed whether it could be anyone else, but time and again, they decided it was almost certainly bin Laden.
Obama spoke with Bush and former President Bill Clinton Sunday night to inform them of the developments.
The president struck a less than boastful tone in his brief announcement, although he said the death of bin Laden was "the most significant achievement to date in our nation's effort to defeat al-Qaida.
"His death does not mark the end of our effort. There's no doubt that al-Qaida will continue to pursue attacks against us. We must and we will remain vigilant," he added.
Moments after Obama spoke, the State Department put U.S. embassies on alert and warned of the heightened possibility for anti-American violence. In a worldwide travel alert, the department said there was an "enhanced potential for anti-American violence given recent counterterrorism activity in Pakistan."
