Congressman Jim Cooper (TN-05) issued the following statement after President Barack Obama announced that Osama bin Laden has been killed in Pakistan, and the U.S. is in possession of his body:
"The death of Osama Bin Laden is a great victory in our fight against terrorism," said Congressman Jim Cooper. "I am thankful for all the brave men and women who fought tirelessly to help bring this man to justice. We will never forget the horrific attacks on 9/11, but hopefully this will bring some closure and comfort to those who lost loved ones nearly 10 years ago. This does not mark the end of our fight against evil, but it should serve as a warning to all those who choose to attack Americans. No matter how long it takes, no matter where you hide, we will find you and justice will be served."
