FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) -- President Barack Obama says that because of the incredible skill and courage of countless intelligence and military professionals, the terrorist leader who struck the U.S. on 9/11 "will never threaten America again."
Obama traveled to Fort Campbell in Kentucky on Friday to thanks U.S. troops for their efforts. Many soldiers at the Army post have recently returned from Afghanistan. Obama also thanked the special operations troops who participated in the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound in Pakistan.
Before Obama spoke, Vice President Joe Biden proudly told the troops: "We just spent time with the assaulters who got bin Laden."
