D.C. reaction to bin Laden's demise

People around Washington, D.C., marked the death of Osama bin Laden with cheers, quiet reflection and honoring of the country's military.

"I think it's just," said Olney, Md., resident Stuart Showalter of Osama Bin Laden's death. "He got what he deserved. In fact, he got less than he deserved." Showalter said that he came to the Pentagon Memorial in Arlington, Va., on Monday, May 2, 2011, the morning after the country learned that Osama Bin Laden had been killed by U.S. Navy Seals because Bin Laden was the mastermind behind the Sept. 11 attacks, and he "wanted to come down here and remember the people who died here." The Pentagon Memorial is dedicated to the 184 people who were killed at the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001. (Barbara L. Salisbury/The Washington Times)
