Roskam Statement On Death of Osama bin Laden

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Peter Roskam (R-IL), Chief Deputy Whip, issued the following statement regarding the news that Osama bin Laden has been killed:

"Today is a great day for freedom and America as a despicable man has been brought to justice. While nothing can bring back the victims of 9/11 and Al-Qaeda's terror elsewhere, the death of Osama bin Laden will hopefully give some solace to the families whose lives were forever changed by Al-Qaeda's terror. I am deeply appreciative of the armed forces and clandestine officers, the unsung heroes that delivered justice for America and the world. While this is a tremendous victory, our work is not done. We still face a serious threat from Al-Qaeda and radical Islamic terrorists and must stay vigilant in our efforts to fight terrorism."
