Statement on the Killing of Osama Bin Laden

 

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement in response to President Obama's announcement tonight that Osama Bin Laden is dead:

“Tonight’s news, that Osama Bin Laden was killed by U.S. special forces in Pakistan, brings to justice a heinous individual who masterminded the murders of thousands of innocent people through many terrorist attacks around the world and thousands of Americans nearly ten years ago on September 11, 2001.

"This terrible chapter in American history will never be forgotten, but tonight we can go to sleep knowing that no other innocent life will be taken by this terrorist.

"I cannot thank enough the men and women of our armed forces and intelligence agencies, who bravely fought, and continue to fight, to protect all Americans from terrorism.  The fight has been long, but tonight, because of you, America rid the world of a mass murderer.  

"President Obama's leadership in making the targeting of Osama Bin Laden our highest military and intelligence priority, warrants our gratitude. He deserves credit for refocusing U.S. efforts in Afghanistan and Pakistan to root out terrorism which no doubt helped lead to this historic announcement."
