U.S. officials say Osama bin Laden was found by tracking his most trusted courier. Knowledge about that courier was gleaned in part through the interrogation of detainees, either at Guantanamo or in CIA prisons.

Some intelligence officials say that argument is too simplistic.
Tuesday afternoon, kids at hundreds of middle schools all over the country were dancing exactly the same dance at exactly the same time. OK, they're middle school kids, so probably they were all doing something similar at more or less the same time. They called it a "flash workout" at the direction of two powerful leaders: Beyonce and the First Lady.
The kids were dancing to Beyonce's song and video "Move Your Body," a reworking of her song "Get Me Bodied," made for Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign.

Ambassador HUSSAIN HAQQANI (Pakistan): Pleasure being here.
On Monday, there were more police officers patrolling the subways in New York City and Washington, D.C., and tighter security at bridges and tunnels around New York City after the death of Osama bin Laden.

But Aaron Hanson, at LAX catching a plane to South Korea, said security on Monday was especially visible.
