Rep. Joe Pitts (PA-16) released the following statement regarding the death of 9/11 mastermind Osama Bin Laden.
"What Osama bin Laden perpetrated in 2001 took the lives of more Americans than Pearl Harbor did. He was not only a symbol of evil, he was also its greatest living human architect. President Bush began the hunt and President Obama saw it through. The death of Osama bin Laden was not for satisfaction or for revenge. It was a strike for justice, freedom and, ultimately, for peace."
