Bin Laden's Death, One Year Later

One year ago, local residents felt joyful and uneasy after a daring military raid took out the terror leader. How do you feel now?

Bin Laden's Death, One Year Later

Tuesday marked the first anniversary of the death of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

The man who was responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks that the destroyed the World Trade Center was killed by Navy SEALS in Pakistan.

At the time, residents in Half Hollow Hills were jubilant that the world's most wanted man had been taken out, but there was also much apprehension over what would come next.

Even a year later, there is still some concern. Last week, th e Department of Homeland Security released a bulletin warning of possible terror attacks on the anniversary.

Rep. Peter King, R-Seaford.  told CBS, "There is chatter or talk among various terrorists, various Al-Qaeda supporters, about avenging the death of bin Laden. Basically with the first anniversary coming up, this is a warning, advisory to all Americans for keeping their eyes and ears out and also I would say to anyone in airlines, rail, anyone at all, to be extra cautious, extra careful.”
