Bangalore, May 2: With the lynchpin of global terrorism, Osama bin Laden finally meted out natural justice, it is not only the leaders in the United States who would be heaving a collective sigh of relief. There are also a whole lot of former and present politicians who can now breathe easy.

As the President of the United States. Barack Obama announced the death of Osama, leaders who were constantly involved in the plans to nab the terror-mastermind, were quick enough to let the world know of what they felt of the achievment.

And not so unsurprisingly no Pakistani minister, former or present has issued a statement about the remarkable achievement of the US army. Is the Pakistani government mourning the loss of Osama or is it smarting since they have always said that the al-Qaeda leader was not in Pakistan? Let the world figure out.

Here are what some of them said via Twitter and other sources:

P Chidamabaram: "...We take note with grave concern that part of the statement in which President Obama said that the fire fight in which Osama Bin Laden was killed took place in Abbotabad "deep inside Pakistan". This fact underlines our concern that terrorists belonging to different organisations find sanctuary in Pakistan. We believe that the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror attack, including the controllers and handlers of the terrorists who actually carried out the attack, continue to be sheltered in Pakistan..."

George W Bush: "...This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done. "

Mayor of New York City - Michael Bloomberg: "New Yorkers have waited nearly ten years for this news. It is my hope that it will bring some closure and comfort to all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001."

Bill Clinton: "This is a profoundly important moment not just for the families of those who lost their lives on 9/11 and in al-Qaida's other attacks but for people all over the world who want to build a common future of peace, freedom, and cooperation for our children."

Benjamin Netanyahu: "This is a resounding triumph for justice, freedom and the values shared by all democratic nations fighting shoulder to shoulder in determination against terrorism," Netanyahu said in a statement."
