Late last night, President Obama announced that Osama Bin Laden had been killed in a fire fight with Navy Seals. They were sent for him as part of a CIA operation that had been underway for some time.

U-S officials have said that his remains were treated in accordance to Islamic tradition, requiring a body to be buried within twenty-four hours.

One official has been quoted saying that he was buried at sea. Since the announcement, people have been talking about the news non-stop.

After ten years, and millions of dollars The US has captured and killed Osama Bin Laden. People are saying this moment brings closure to everyone affected by 9/11.

The news of his death leaked on twitter, before the official announcement. Once the President gave the official word. Social media networks blew up with lots of reaction.

"If he's guilty, he's going to pay the price," said Kenji Harris.

Most people we talk to here in Albany seemed very happy about this. "I'm happy and the whole DOD family should be. Maybe the prices on fuel will go down," said Thomas Burn.

But Conspiracy theorists have come out saying, they need proof all this is true. "Osama has groomed others to take his place. Is that really him? Sadam Hussein had body doubles," said Margo Mitchell.

According to the Associated Press, law enforcement agencies around the U.S. are on alert. They're preparing for possible retaliation from the news of Bin Laden's death.  " Well there's always going to be bad people in the world. One less is better than several," said Shania Lee.
