The 2011 Death of Osama bin Laden

May 2, 2013

Statement by 9/11 Memorial President Joe Daniels on Death of Osama bin Laden in May 2011

“Join us in recognizing the courageous sacrifice of our U.S. service men and women, the bravery of our first responders, and the selflessness of all those who come to our aid in our greatest times of need. Today we honor the hundreds of thousands whose names we may never know who help defend this country and protect our liberties. While the death of Osama bin Laden two years ago was a significant triumph in the fight against terror, let us also remember the countless other battles that are fought on unnamed battlefields and sacrifices made so that we may continue to live free as Americans. We will always remember the nearly 3,000 innocent people killed on 9/11, keep in our hearts their families and find hope in justice, which will always ultimately prevail.”
