"After a decade-long manhunt, President Obama announced on Sunday night that Osama bin Laden had been killed -- a tremendous moment for the men and women of our armed forces, our intelligence agencies and all Americans. At long last, the world is rid of a despicable mass murderer and the victims of September 11th have obtained a measure of justice."
Rep. Schiff offered congratulations to President Obama, his national security team and to the team that executed the operation. As a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Rep. Schiff has been privileged to work with the men and women of our Intelligence Community and commends their dedication and professionalism.
However, Rep. Schiff reminded that this is not the end of the struggle against al Qaeda, and we must redouble our vigilance in the days ahead.
