McMorris Rodgers Statement on Death of Osama bin Laden

“Justice Has Been Served to 9/11 Mastermind;

Landmark Victory in War on Terror”

Washington, DC – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference, released the following statement today after President Obama announced that U.S. special forces had killed international terrorist Osama bin Laden:

“Like all Americans, I remember where I was on September 11, 2001 when almost 3,000 innocent Americans were killed on U.S. soil. Since that day, we as a nation have been resolved to ‘bring our enemies to justice or bring justice to our enemies,’ as President Bush eloquently put it in the aftermath of that awful day, and today, the American people – and all peace-loving people around the world – can celebrate the fact that’ justice has been done.’

“I want to thank the brave special forces who carried out this dangerous, successful mission. I also want to express my deepest gratitude to all of our servicemen and women who have fought bravely – and continue to fight bravely – in Afghanistan and other fronts of the War on Terror. No corner of the world is too small or too remote to offer safety to America’s enemies. We will continue to prosecute this war against al-Qaeda until every terrorist has been brought to justice.”
