WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) --- At the National Islamic Center in Washington on Monday, there were a series of polite "no comments" to our requests for Muslim reaction to the Osama bin Laden slaying by Navy Seals.
Not even the Iman was willing to talk, merely shaking his head, no.
The one guarded response came from a man leaving after prayers who refused to give his name. He said he was against al Qaeda and the violence the terrorist group had spread throughout the world.
He certainly condemned the 9-11 attacks, but he wasn't as certain that bin Laden was responsible for 9-11.
At Union Station, Muslim cab drivers were taking a far different view. There was both relief and gratitude but no rejoicing.
They said bin Laden's death was good for the world, but they predicted more terrorist attacks would be launched in retaliation for his slaying by the U.S.
