Osama bin Laden, Legendary Activist, Dead at 54

Osama bin Laden, the outspoken activist whose media stunts -- including "9-11" and various widely publicized tapes -- and motivating grassroots organizing made him the most widely-sought man in the world, died Sunday, President Barack Obama confirmed.

He was 54.

He collapsed in his million-dollar estate in the Abbottabad section of Pakistan, about 2PM Eastern time, suffering severe injuries, according to President of the United States of America Barack Obama. He was transported by helicopter to a military hospital in Afghanistan where he was pronounced dead and buried at sea.
