While the news of this has probably spread worldwide by now, it wouldn't be fitting to not mention this event. An American force struck a compound in Pakistan and have killed Osama bin Laden. He was found in a compound in a sub-urban area approximately 35 miles from Islamabad. During the strike, no American forces were harmed despite one of the helicopters used in the strike having mechanical problems and having to be crash landed. Shortly after the media was informed of bin Laden's death, President Obama gave a speech to confirm the event.
