ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- The president's speech over, Osama bin Laden confirmed dead, jubilant midshipmen streamed out of their dorms Sunday night and into Tecumseh Court, one of the central gathering spots at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis.
Dressed casually in T-shirts and baseball caps, the crowd grew into the thousands. Some smoked celebratory cigars. After midnight, a brigade commander told the crowd that it was the elite Navy SEALs who had killed the world's most wanted terrorist.
