It was the home of the Mcallisters, it was a huge warm home big enough for the whole family, and it was a house that Kevin had to protect.

The Look on Their Faces: Bin Laden Dead

3 May

Since the photos of Osama bin Laden dead have yet to be released, there is one photo that is quickly becoming one of the most popular. This photo shows Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden along with other staff as they watched live feed of the raid on the compound that housed the most wanted man in recent history.

On sunday, the man responsible for the worst terrorist attack in the United States which instantly took the lives of nearly 3000 people, was shot dead by navy seals in a compound in Pakistan. And as those events unfolded just outside of the capital city of Islamabad, the heads of the administration that have actively been hunting him watched intently. The look on Hillary’s face, and the seriousness of Obama indicating that this was a shocking, but major moment for not only the U.S, but the world.

This photo will surely prove to be one that captured a major historical event in the coming years. It will be a photo that makes magazine covers, newspaper front pages, and in books and media to come. But in the meantime until the death photos of Bin Laden surface, it will continue to be the most popular photo depicting the scenario that unfolded that night.
