Students from the Southern Methodist University (SMU) are gathering outside of President George W. Bush’s home in Dallas to thank him and are chanting “USA” according to tweets by the @SMUDailyMustang, SMU’s student run newspaper.
First Lady Laura Bush is an alumni of SMU and sits on the university’s board. President Bush’s Presidential Library will call SMU home as well.
Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that American forces killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of the al Qaeda network that attacked America on September 11, 2001. I congratulated him and the men and women of our military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to this mission. They have our everlasting gratitude. This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.
