Barack Obama had a moving message for those people who lost friends and family after 9/11 after announcing the death of Osama Bin Laden.
“We will be relentless in defence of our citizens, and our friends and allies. We will be true to the values that make us who we are, and on nights like this one we can say to those families who have lost loved ones to Al Qaida’s terror – justice has been done,” he said.
“Tonight we gave thanks to the countless intelligence and counter-terrorism professionals who have worked tirelessly to achieve this outcome. The American people do not see their work nor know their names, but tonight they see the satisfaction of their work and the result of the pursuit of justice.
“Finally, let me say to the families who lost loved ones on 9/11. We have never forgotten your loss nor waivered in our commitment to see that we do whatever it takes to prevent another attack on our shores. Tonight let us think back to the sense of unity that prevailed on 9/11. I know that it has at times frayed, yet today’s achievement is a testament to the greatness of our country and the determination of the American people.
“The cause of securing our country is not complete, but tonight we are once again reminded that America can do whatever we set our mind to. That is the story of our history. Whether it is the pursuit of prosperity for our people or the struggle for equality for all our citizens or standing up for our values abroad and our sacrifices to make the world a safer place.
“Let us remember that we can do these things not because of wealth and power – but because of who we are – one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
