David Sanger, chief Washington correspondent for The New York Times, joins Kerry Nolan to discuss the implications of Osama bin Laden's death.

President Obama made the announcement during a late-night statement at the Whitehouse. Mr. Obama says the mastermind of the 9-11 attacks was killed by special ops team in a firefight after a months-long investigation located him in a compound about 40 miles north of Islamabad, Pakistan. Sanger weighs in on what this means for the future of Al Qaeda, the ongoing uprisings in the Arab world, and the Obama administration.
