this have on al-qaida now? >> there is al qaeda the original organization responsible for the original attack on the u.s., theiraffiliates of al qaeda in other countries, for example in iraq they are different groups. they are is not been governed by osama bin laden i think the ongoing conflict we have with them in other places won't be changed but for al qaeda itself, general hi, he was a powerful figure, symbolic presence and obviously someone who networked carefully a person connected to money day today operations at this point were probably not being handled by him his lieutenant, is an egyptian national been with osama bin laden for many many years his group was responsible for the assassination of saddat that is how far back that goes he is only about 52 years old i
would assume he will assume a more prominent role. removing osama bin laden from this equation to your question, it takes some of the wind out of the sails of al qaeda, they are less scary in some ways without him. >> where do you thing this war on terror stands now? >> i think we should ask what is the war on terror originally, sydnie, the phrase coined was justification for going intoafghanistan and pay back for 9/11. it was given as a reason for going to iraq later it turned out there was no connection between that al qaeda and what was going on in iraq. i think the quick answer to your question is, probably more pressure on the president now, to wrap up operations in afghanistan and iraq the fight over terrorism is not over but most of this, about going into afghanistan was about getting osama bin laden and now he is gone. >> well, we will see you in 30
minutes. thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you joel. and a look at bay area weather enjoying beautiful sunny skies similar to what we saw all weekend long we will continue with that trend over the next several days, you can see the sun is up beautiful clear skies this will be the trend for the next several days as you make your way out the door, clear conditions, fog along the coastline temperatures sitting in the 40s and 50s by this afternoon warming it right up into the low 80s. inland spots, bay and coast cooler than where we were sitting yesterday. for the most part beautiful day in store. satellite joining us, high pressure holding allowing us to see beautiful temperatures and plenty of sunshine this area of low pressure passing to the north will cause a slight dip in temperature tomorrow nothing significant as soon as that passes through that is when we will see the warm weather hit the forecast. for today, highs, cupertino and campbell, 79 san jose and sunny

u.s.s cole to attacks of september 11th, 2001. and so many more these were not just attacks against americans although resufferred grievous losses these were attacks against the whole world in london and madrid, bali is stan bull and other places innocent people, most muslims were targeted in markets, and mosques, in subway stations and on airplanes. each attack motivated by a violent ideology that holds no value for human life, or regard for human dignity. i know that nothing can make up for the loss of the victims or fill the voids they left but i hope their families can now find some comfort in the fact
that justice has been served. second, i want to join the president in honouring the courage and commitment of the brave men and women who serve our country and have worked tirelessly and relentlessly for more than a decade to track down and bring osama bin laden, this terrorist, to justice. from our troops, and our intelligence experts, to our diplomats, and our law enforcement officials n has been a broad -- officials, this has been a broad, deep aggressive effort here at the state department we have work to forge a worldwide anti terror network we have drawn together the effort and energy of friends, partners, allies on every continent. our partnership including our close cooperation with
pakistan, have helped put unprecedented pressure on al qaeda, and its leadership. continued cooperation will be just as important in the days ahead. because even as we mark this milestone, we should not forget, that the battle to stop al qaeda, and its syndicate of terror, will not end, with the death of osama bin laden. in deed, we must take this opportunity to renew our resolve and redouble our effort. in afghanistan, we will continue taking the fight to al qaeda and their taliban allies. while working to support the afghan people as they build a stronger government, and begin to take responsibility for their own security. we are implementing the strategy, for transition approved by nato at the summit in lisbon. and we are supporting an afghan
lead political process, that seeks to isolate al qaeda, and end the insurgency. our message to the taliban remains the same, but today, it may have even greater resonance. you cannot wait us out you cannot defeat us, but you can make the choice to abandon al qaeda and participate in a peaceful political process. in pakistan, we are committed to supporting the people and government as they defend their own democracy, from violent extremism indeed as the president said, osama bin laden had alts declared war -- also declared war on pakistan he ordered the killing of many innocent pakistani men, women
and children. in recent years the cooperation between our government, law enforcement agencies increased pressure on al qaeda and the taliban and this progress must continue. we are committed to our partnerships. history will record that osama bin laden's death came at a time of great movement towards freedom and democracy at a time when people across the middle east and north africa are rejecting the extremist narrative and charting a path of peaceful progress based on universal rights and aspirations. there is no better rebuke to al qaeda, and its heinous ideology. all over the world we will press forward, bolstering our partnership, strengthening networks, investing in a positive vision of peace and progress and relentlessly
pursuing murders who target innocent people the fight continues we will never waiver. now i know there are some who doubted this day would ever come, who questioned our resolve, and our reach, but let us remind ourselves, this is america. we rise to the challenge, we per server ever and get the job -- preserver and get the job done. >> that was secretary of state hillary clinton talking about the death of osama bin laden. we are back here life in union city at the memorial of united flight 93 this was the flight that gave us the battle cry of let's roll and the man who said that was tom burnett and his mom actually lives in saratoga. some strong and powerful influences in that. the flight was headed towards washington dc to crash
into the capitol building or white house the men and women onboard the plane stopped the hijackers and crashed it into the woods in pennsylvania. we spoke with the husband of lauren who was on the plane and 3 months pregnant we asked him if he ever felt osama bin laden would be caught. >> i am not an advocate for violence, but i do want to thank those who were vigilant on behalf of lauren and our unborn child and all those who were lost that day and everyone who has been lost to a terrorist act. it is not just ours it is global we need to stop it. >> lauren did manage to make a phone call to her husband that day he was sleeping at the time so she left a message saying there was a problem on the plane but that she felt like everything would be okay for now and that she loved everyone and since then, a street in san raphael has been renamed in her honor. kit thanks very much. in union city this morning. we will have continuing coverage of osama bin laden's

cooling off thursday and more cooling trend continues friday into saturday and sunday as well at which point we will sit in the high 60s low 70s low inland spots. let's go to elizabeth. >> thank you chopper 5 continues to cruise across the bay area. showing us westbound 24 traffic through lafayette, looks like there is a tow crew out there activity off to the shoulder maybe causing a little bit of slowing right past the scene but overall your usual stuff usual slow traffic coming out of walnut creek, but so far not too bad of a ride out towards the caldecott tunnel. all right this is some video taken by chopper 5 a little earlier, you can see where a car ran into a fire hydrant in san francisco's mission district developing story we have been following since 4:15 a.m. we understand there was a 1- year-old child inside that car, suffered life threatening injuries. according to the san francisco
police department, so, the child was france fehred to the hospital -- transferred to the hospital still street closures in the area, mission street completely shut for a couple blocks between 22nd and 24th also 23rd shut down both directions for about a block so again, the investigation has been going on now for more than a couple hours, use alternates in the area, van nest is open. more traffic coming up including a check of the bay bridge. all right thanks very much. this morning, u.s. leaders speaking out praising the death of osama bin laden. in fact just a short time ago secretary of state hillary clinton said terror will not end with his death and we must preserver against al qaeda. >> with more on the impact of osama bin laden's death here is joel. this is the -- hopefully folks can see that at home but front page san francisco chronicle,
u.s. killed osama bin laden. this is on every newspaper in the land. >> does this make him a martyr now would we have to worry about more retaliation? >> i think for any of his followers, there is likely to be that impact it would have been the case whether he died of natural causes over not in some ways he becomes a venerated figure after his death the question of retaliation sydnie is one i think we have to look at carefully already this morning we have reports of people posting things online, threatening retaliation but let me say to reas sure people watching today, any time an attack happens any where, there will be lots of groups that claim credit for it or threaten more attacks in the future and it is important we distinguish between people who make claimthose who are viable threats some times when we publicize these things in news media we raise anxiety when we don't need to.
