The moment that America has yearned for since September 11th, 2001 has finally occurred. On Sunday night at approximately 10:40 Evansville time, President Barack Obama confirmed the news that had been reported for over an hour before, American forces in Pakistan conducted an ordered military operation that led to the killing of terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden.

After the President's address, Indiana Senator Dan Coats, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee issued the following statement:

“This is the news we have waited to hear ever since learning that Osama Bin Laden was responsible for attacking America on September 11, 2001. Following the loss of more than 3,000 innocent American lives, the United States government pledged to capture the architect of 9/11. The success of this mission is the result of the persistent efforts of our intelligence officers and the brave service of America’s military men and women.”
