Sophia Bush - Sophia Bush: 'The World Is A Better Place Without Bin Laden'

Actress Sophia Bush is baffled by criticisms of U.S. President Barack Obama for allowing terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden to be shot dead - insisting the world should "rejoice".
The One Tree Hill star was quick to take to her Twitter.com page after it was announced the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks had died at the hands of the U.S. military at the weekend (30Apr11-01May11), telling her followers, "Watching Americans, and visitors from around the world, chanting 'Usa!' together outside the White House is bringing tears to my eyes. Today is a great day for all of us."
Differing reports about the circumstances around bin Laden's death, and whether or not he was armed, have emerged since the weekend, with some critics slamming Obama for allowing him to be killed instead of captured.
But Bush is fully supportive of Obama and is hopeful the al-Qaeda leader's death will be "the end of his influence" as "the world is a better place with him gone".
On her Twitter page, she writes, "We found one of the world's most evil terrorists. We should all rejoice his capture... the number of people responding saying 'a murder should never be celebrated,' really? There is No One celebrating a death. In any case, death is terrible.
"However Any criminal, in any situation, who resists arrest with a firearm is going to get shot. Period. And this particular man, guilty of murdering thousands of people, in a number of countries around the world, is no different. I'm sure the military would have loved to take him alive. The wealth of information he could have given us would have been incredible. But he didn't surrender. Nor did he give that chance, of life, of escaping a tragic death, to the thousands of people he mercilessly killed over the years.
"So before you judge the people celebrating, think. It's not his death they are cheering. It's the end of his influence, his vitriol, his psychotic propaganda. The world is a better place with him gone. And I for one am proud of the US military for providing all of us with such security."
