Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Charlie Dent (PA-15), a member of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security, issued the following statement on the death of Osama Bin Laden:

"The death of Osama Bin Laden represents a major victory in the global war on terror. I am extremely proud of our military and intelligence communities, whose unswerving determination and perseverance led to this important achievement.

"Thousands of innocent Americans lost their lives during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks orchestrated by Osama Bin Laden, and many more sacrificed life and limb in the years following 9/11 working to bring the world's most dangerous terrorist to justice. Today, we pay tribute to these individuals and reaffirm our commitment to ensuring the security of the American people.

"While the death of Osama Bin Laden is certainly a major step forward in international efforts to dismantle terrorist organizations like Al-Qaeda, it does not signal an end to the global war on terror. We must remain dedicated to combating extremism and vigilant in working to prevent terrorist attacks in the United States and abroad."
