Flag Comes Down
California man vowed to keep flag flying until Bin Laden was killed or captured.
On September 12, 2001 a San Jose, California man raised an American flag and vowed not to lower it until Osama Bin Laden was dead.
On Monday David Thomas took down his tattered flag.
It flew for nearly a decade, despite wind, rain and cold temperatures.
He posted a sign on the flagpole explaining why he was flying a tattered flag.
Part of the sign reads "you must fly til Bin Laden dies."
It became a popular sight in the neighborhood, and even attracted strangers who had heard about it.
