Obama, Biden and members of their national security team receive an update on the mission against Osama bin Laden in the Situation Room of the White House on May 1, 2011. "[As] a country, we will never tolerate our security being threatened, nor stand idly by when our people have been killed. We will be relentless in defense 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 Qaeda’s terror: Justice has been done," Obama said when he announced that bin Laden was dead.
