U.S. celebrates news of bin Laden's death

President Obama announced tonight that al Qaeda's former leader was killed after a firefight with Navy Seals. He confirmed Internet rumors that Osama bin Laden's body was in U.S. possession. Many Americans are rejoicing, especially at Ground Zero.

The president said killing bin Laden was among his first directives:

" ... Shortly after taking office, I directed Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority of our war against al Qaeda, even as we continued our broader efforts to disrupt, dismantle and defeat his network."

And he reminded viewers that the United States is not at war with Islam:

"I've made clear, just as President Bush did shortly after 9/11, that our war is not against Islam. Bin Laden was not a Muslim leader; he was a mass murderer of Muslims. Indeed, al Qaeda has slaughtered scores of Muslims in many countries, including our own."

If you missed it, the full text of the president's speech is online.

Meet the man who may be in charge: Bin Laden's second in command, Ayman al-Zawahri, is a surgeon who was born in Egypt.

Bill Moyers wrote up a quick rundown of al Qaeda's history. A few outlets are carrying bin Laden's obit.

President Bush, other Republican politicians and notables from around the world react.
