U.S. Congressman John Barrow (GA-12) issued the following statement after U.S. military forces announced that they had killed Osama bin Laden, leader of the Al Qaeda terrorist network and mastermind of the 9-11 attacks:
"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."
