Today marks the five year anniversary of notorious terrorist Osama Bin Laden’s death. To celebrate, the CIA Live tweeted the raid on Bin Laden in ‘real time’ as if it were happening today. President Obama also spoke on the raid, and he had some very interesting things to say.

Obama spoke about the exact moment Bin Laden was caught saying “he hopes that in Osama bin Laden’s last moments, the master terrorist understood that the U.S. had come for him to avenge the deaths of 3,000 people on September 11, 2001.” And “hopefully, at that moment, he understood that the American people hadn’t forgotten the some 3,000 people who he killed.”
