Congressman Chuck Fleischmann commented on the death of Osama bin Laden.
"Tonight has brought great news for the American people and a milestone in the war on terror. After a decade of hard work, the brave men and women of our military have brought justice to a man who has brought unspeakable evil to the American homeland, and to all corners of the earth. At great sacrifice they have fought each day to protect our freedoms and carry out missions to keep us safe, and the news tonight testifies to their abilities and determination," Fleischmann said.
"While tonight marks the end of an era of terrorism by one man, we must not rest. There are many more who wish ill on our country just as Osama bin Laden did, and we must stay ever vigilant. I have no doubt the United States will continue its mission to bring safety to our soil, and freedom to those around the world who are oppressed by brutal dictators and terrorists. The death of Osama bin Laden, after many years of hard work and sacrifice, shows just how strong the American will is. Thank you to the men and women of our military who protect us from men like Osama bin Laden."
