Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson Speak on the Death of Osama Bin Laden

I was on the radio today with Rev. Al Sharpton.  Of course the topic of discussion was the death of Osama Bin Laden.  The Reverend had some interesting guests on the show, including a woman who was in the building when the towers went down in 2001.  Sharpton, as a New Yorker, had some interesting thoughts about the situation, especially as it pertains to the Obama presidency.

"Everyone died on 9-11. Blacks, whites, Muslims, Latinos and working class people," said Sharpton. "He didn’t care who was in those buildings or on that plane. All Americans shared in that pain and all Americans can share in what we are seeing today."
