Official White House photograph by Pete Souza

The White House watches the attack on Osama bin Laden

In a famous White House photo by Pete Souza, President Barack Obama (second from left) and his team watch live updates as U.S. forces invade the compound of Osama bin Laden and kill the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks. Though this is often called the 'Situation Room photo,' in fact the photo was taken in a smaller conference next to the main Situation Room in the basement of the White House.
