Bin Laden's Death Sparks Plenty of Reaction

Tallahassee, FL - Eileen Walsh is not at all shy or apologetic about her feelings concerning Osama Bin Laden's death.

"May he rot in hell," said Walsh.

To understand her conviction, you have to understand her pain. Walsh says it's because of Bin Laden that her family's lives were forever changed.

"After a while you just recognize that she wasn't coming home."

Walsh's aunt, Ann McGovern, 61, worked in one of the twin towers in New York on the 92nd floor, and on September 11th, 2001, she was trying desperately to get out.

"Her body was never found. A few years later they found pieces of her," she said.

For nearly a decade Walsh and her family had to live with the painful details of those attacks; and worse, with the knowledge that the person responsible was still out there. Until now.

But what many are calling an American victory, is bitter-sweet to Walsh.

She says Bin Laden's death won't bring her aunt back, or change the fact that her 10 year old grandson will never know the woman holding him in this picture.

"Not only did he hurt my family, what he did to us as a country is just abominable," said Walsh.

Walsh says McGovern's daughter was actually in the north tower when the the attack took place in 2001. Walsh says she made it out alive, but saw things that that never left her the same.

    I hope you are being sarcastic. If not, do you really think Obama would dream this up to get back at the comb-over and his 2-bit show? Get real.

    Can't you people see that this is a hoax? Obama interrupted 'Celebrity Apprentice' to break the news only days after being humiliated by Donald Trump. Gee, the lengths some people will go to abuse their position to make a point. Where's the evidence, video, confirmation, etc., from the oval office? There isn't any and too much time has passed now for any evidence to be credible.

    Fact of the matter is, Bin Laden had not been doing anything lately and the terror threat will still not leave us alone him being around or not. Obama nor Bush gets credit for this, it was an military operation, if it is for real, which, I do not think we will ever know. As far as Obama, he has more on his plate. The economy is way bigger than Bin Laden and he is failing big time with it.

    why does everyone always have to question EVERYTHING people just love to argue. just be quiet and be glad that he's dead after everything that he has caused!

    Haters, the only reason is that you are nonbelievers is it happened under Obama, and not your precious Bush.

    Not one news agency is reporting that they verified this death by video, DNA, or pictures. I don't believe a word of it and I also believe Bin Laden has been dead for years and this is a publicity stunt.
