May 04, 2011 - White House Blog - Karen Mills - On Sunday, I traveled with Secretary Napolitano, Secretary Vilsack, Secretary Donovan, Administrator Fugate, and others to Alabama and Mississippi.

REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT ON OSAMA BIN LADEN
East Room - 11:35 P.M. EDT - THE PRESIDENT:  Good evening.  Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda, and a terrorist who’s responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women, and children.

This deal cuts spending by $78.5 billion from the President’s FY 2011 Budget request -- the largest annual spending cut in our history. These are real cuts that will save taxpayers money and have a real impact. Many will be painful, and are to programs that we support, but the fiscal situation is such that we have to act.
