On Sunday, May 1, 2011, President Barack Obama announced to the nation that al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden had been killed during a mission set out by the U.S. military and Pakistani authorities.
The news was hailed a victory and allowed the country and those directly affected by the devastating 9/11 attacks to breathe a sigh of relief.
But the war on terror is not over. Al Qaeda is expected to re-group and attempt to retaliate, forcing the United States to address new security concerns. The country's role in the war, as well as Pakistan's, is also in question.
CBN News is following the situation, outlining what bin Laden's death could mean for the fight against terror, U.S. troops in the Middle East, and Americans at home.
