Woodbury Sept. 11 survivor reacts to bin Laden death


The announcement that Osama bin Laden had been killed represented a somber moment for Scott Wallace.

As President Obama explained last week how a military strike team had killed the al Qaida leader, Wallace, a Woodbury resident, just pumped his fist.

"It was a thank you to the president that we got rid of this guy," said Wallace, a survivor of the Sept. 11, 2001, World Trade Center attacks. "It just eliminated a very bad person from the world scene."
