11:29 am
11:30 am
11:31 am
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. >> that was secretary of state hillary clinton's direct message to terrorists groups, after u.s. special forces tracked down and killed the most wanted man in the world. american intelligence officials say the operation took more than four years from when they identified bin laden's trusted courier. they followed him for two years and track him down to the compound north of pakistan's capital. the mansion did not have phone or internet access and it was so large, officials guessed it was built to hide someone important. president obama was actively
11:32 am
involved in reviewing all facets of the operation and listened to live updates from the situation room as it unfolded yesterday. >> reporter: friday morning, minutes before departing the white house on his way to inspect tornado damage in alabama, president obama gave the order to launch the operation to kill osama bin laden. more than two days later, u.s. special operations forces attacked bin laden's heavily fortified compound at agot bo a bod. in a scene straight out of an action thriller, u.s. helicopters loaded with american commandos closed in for the kill. on approach, one helicopter had mechanical problems and crash landed but no one on board was hurt. within seconds the and two special forces flooded the compound and came under heavy fire. u.s. officials say armed with an automatic rifle, the al qaeda
11:33 am
leader fired on the americans, who then shot and killed bin laden. >> the first bang came, three on consecutive bangs came, one fifth, final bang, which made the whole sky orange. that's when i had to duck. i thought, this is something very big. >> reporter: the navy s.e.a.l.s kill two al qaeda couriers and one of bin laden's adult sons. one woman was also shot and killed. when the shooting stopped the americans loaded bin laden's body on a helicopter to be transferred to afghanistan. nearly ten years after 9/11, the operation to kill bin laden was over in 40 minutes. >> a top al qaeda member vowed revenge today for the killing of osama bin laden by u.s. forces. joining us, larry johnson, anti-terrorism expert and former cia expert, agent. welcome. >> i was an analyst at the agency. >> maybe you can tell us, how
11:34 am
important is this, this killing of osama bin laden? >> well, ethink it's significant because he really was the first global terrorist from the standpoint of trying to bring together a bunch of desperate elements. the fact he was thumbing his nose to us for ten years, getting him, killing, him, i regret we're not in the mid ages. it's be nice to put his head out on the pike in the front of the white house. someone who lunges those attacks won't get away with it. >> never any doubt in your mine he was still alive. some people thought perhaps those voices that we heard in recorded messages from him were not really him. >> new york he wo, he was alive. the attack highlighted showed the fact he was protected within element of pakistan, pakistan's intelligence service, military, government, protected him and enabled not only him but terrorist groups. they've done it for 30 years
11:35 am
pakistan's been our best friend and worst enemy at the same time. elements to fight terrorists but elements in pakistan who enable these guys. >> how big a deal was it that the u.s. acted alone, that's what we're hearing without talking to allies about this? >> no way the u.s. did this on its own. u.s. did this with the cooperation of pakistan. you're not going to fly helicopter as far into pakistan as we did without pakistan military air controls are being in on it. you've got a forward staging base someplace in pakistan where the u.s. forces who carried this operation out were put in position beforehand to be able to plan it and then to launch the attack. >> the news of that we're hearing even pakistan was not informed is not true? >> that may be -- i'm not sure -- there are a lot of behind the scenes activities going on now. the united states indicted three top pakistani military intelligence officials four days ago for their role in the attacks on mumbai, india, december 2008. there may be quid pro quo trading going on behind the
11:36 am
scenes. paks new. >> why should we be worried about a revenge attack. >>? >> i don't think we should be worried about a revenge attack. why do we keep pretending bin laden and this crew are zombies from the night of the living dead? no matter what we do, they get bigger and stronger? once we started focusing on them in the aftermath of the 9/11 attack, once we started killing and capturing these guys their capacity to conduct operations has severely eroded and we've gotten down to this character in yemen, who is -- he's tried to mount his version of spectaculars and they've been abysmal failures. they're not ten feet tall, they're not supermen. >> the fear of sleeper cells all over the country that are going to come out now, you think that's unwarranted. >> they've been taken ambien. they are so far asleep they can't be woken up. >> thank you for joining us, larry johnson, anti-terrorism
11:37 am
expert and former cia analyst. thank you for being with us. this morning on the "today" show, former secretary of state donald rumsfeld stressed osama bin laden's death does not mark the end of al qaeda. >> we have, in a given region, killed the -- killed or captured the head of daed and within hours someone took his place. we have to assume this isn't the end of radical islamists trying to kill americans. there are others out there. he will be replaced. and the key is the fact that the bush administration and the obama administration have put pressure on the terrorists and that's what resulted in the intelligence and the information that led to the killing of osama bin laden and over time will lead to the killing of whoever succeeds him. >> rumsfeld say u.s. intelligence and military should be attentive right now to avoid possible retaliation. with the death of bin laden, some are worried about what this
11:38 am
will mean for america's relationship with the muslim world. today a reporter for arabic tv news channel al arabiya said muslims will most likely not be upset with bin laden's death because of his murderous past. >> in the arab world there's a good deal of welcome. the jordanian government and the palestinian authority and others are welcoming the news. so far, it was handled properly. if he was given a muslim burial, that's very fine. i don't think there will be the kind of reaction that some people in the west are expecting. celebrating, if you will, the killing of a murderer is not going to be seen as insulting to many people in the arab world. >> other countries are speaking out in for of america's actions against bin laden. saudi arabia has said it hopes bin laden's death will boost efforts to fight global terrorism. >> usa!
11:39 am
usa! usa! >> the reaction outside the white house early this morn was nothing but pure joy. hundreds, if not thousands, rallied downtown packing lafayette park. many students unified through social media like twitter and facebook. thousands flooded the streets near ground zero in new york city. those celebrations throughout the night. christ gordon was there when new yorkers heard the news and caught the emotional reaction interest the city that bin laden led an attack on nearly ten years ago. >> usa! usa! >> reporter: i'm standing at the base of the world trade center, ground zero. i'm surrounded by hundreds, if not thousands, of young people who all converged on downtown manhattan, ground zero, with american flags flying. somebody climbed up a street
11:40 am
pole at church street with a sign that said "obama, 1, osama, 0" they've been singing god god bless america, the star spanginged banner, god bless the usa. the crowd was so big the police came through and said step to the right, step to left, and applauded the police. i haven't seen that possibly in years going back to the vietnam war that people in the street applauded police. they applauded when world trade center crews came through here. they're rebuilding an area of -- called wtcp, world trade center project, and the people all who came here waving flags, wearing flags, singing songs, feel that they came together at an
11:41 am
historic moment for history, that some of them who are now grown were in eighth grade when the world trade center towers were attacked and destroyed. and tonight, they gathered in celebration, into the early morning hours it continues. streets are jammed. i'm in the middle of it. it's like being in times square new year's eve. i can't tell how big the crowd is. it goes in every direction at an intersection here, standing in the middle of the street. this is the situation as people gathered to celebrate, to come to the world trade center, almost ten years after the tragedy to celebrate victory. this is christ gordon, reporting from the world trade center, for news4. >> stay with nbc 4 throughout the day. for more details on the
