Here’s what our federal lawmakers had to say on the demise of one Osama bin Laden:
"I'm pleased today to commend our United States military, our special operations forces and our intelligence agencies around the world for the effective delivery of the strike against Osama bin Laden last night in Pakistan which ended in his demise. While this does not bring a close to terrorism it does bring closure to the 9/11 tragedy and justice to Osama bin Laden—but it is a reminder how me must be ever vigilant in the future to make sure that terrorism, wherever it might raise its head, is effectively struck down by the people of the United States of America and by our government. This democracy has survived many attacks in the past and will in the future because we are a great country made of great men and women who are willing to volunteer their time and their service to serve in the military, the intelligence agencies and the security of this country. May God bless the United States of America." -Johnny Isakson
"This is a historic moment for the U.S. special operations and intelligence communities. I highly commend the special operations units who undertook this mission and carried it out with no injuries to women or children inside the compound. The CIA and others in the U.S. intelligence community did a phenomenal job over several months in carrying out this assignment." - Saxby Chambliss
“This is a true victory for our country, and it shows that Americans are committed to fighting terrorism wherever it hides, and for however long it takes. Our military leaders, intelligence community, and brave men and women who executed the raid that killed bin Laden deserve special commendation today. These folks have never wavered in their commitment to our country, and our entire nation is grateful for their service.
“Anyone who attacks America needs to know that our people and our country will not rest until justice is done.” - John Barrow
