Bin Laden headlines placed at Arlington Cemetery grave [PHOTO]

Since President Obama announced that U.S. forces killed Osama bin Laden, there have been an overwhelming number of amazing images, videos and stories. One five-second shot in this Washington Post video about reflections at Arlington National Cemetery caught my eye.

It’s a striking image of USA Today and Washington Post newspapers placed at a gravesite:

The 4:30 a.m. scene outside the White House after Osama bin Laden is killed

Around 4:30 a.m. Monday morning, I took a walk from The Washington Post building on 15th and L Streets NW to see if there was still a crowd in front of the White House. This was about five hours after President Obama made his television address announcing that the al-Qaeda leader had been killed by the United States.

As you can see, there was still a decent group and the “U-S-A! U-S-A!” chants were still going strong.
