Joe Biden, The President of The United States of America celebrates 10 years since the killing of Osama Bin laden.
In a statement released by the White House, Biden said:
“We followed bin Laden to the gates of hell — and we got him,”
“We kept the promise to all those who lost loved ones on 9/11: that we would never forget those we had lost, and that the United States will never waver in our commitment to prevent another attack on our homeland.”
This is to to reaffirm his decision to remove all US troops from Afghanistan.
“a moment I will never forget — the intelligence professionals who had painstakingly tracked him down; the clarity and conviction of President Obama in making the call; the courage and skill of our team on the ground.”
As the US begins pulling the last of its troops from Afghanistan, Biden said:
“Al Qaeda is greatly degraded there. But the United States will remain vigilant about the threat from terrorist groups that have metastasized around the world.
“We will continue to monitor and disrupt any threat to us that emerges from Afghanistan. And we will work to counter terrorist threats to our homeland and our interests in cooperation with allies and partners around the world
