On May 2, 2011, President of The Arkin Group, Jack Devine, discussed the successful U.S. military operation that resulted in the demise of terrorist leader Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan.  Asked for his first reaction to the news of bin Laden’s death, Mr. Devine said, “What a great day … what a wonderful moment and a great tribute to all those involved – CIA and Special Forces.”  Mr. Devine also underscored the significance of bin Laden’s death to the al Qaeda movement, saying “I’ve always felt that bin Laden was more than a symbol … This is a huge event.  I think bin Laden is supremely important, not just because of 9/11 but I think what he means to the movement, and I think the movement will start to fade, frankly.”
