Overview

"Justice has been done." These four words uttered by President Barack Obama announced the triumphant news to the American public. Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil, was dead. In America Triumphs: The Story of Our Heroes from 9/11 to the Demise of Bin Laden, explore the ensuing moments of anguish and joy, from that fateful September morning when al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four commercial jets, to the amazing courage and precision of the U.S. Navy SEALs who finally found and executed Public Enemy No. 1. America Triumphs is not just about the death of the worlds' most wanted terrorist—it is about the death of fear and terror, and the triumph of our democratic ideals.
