Courtney Statement on the Death of Osama bin Laden


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Joe Courtney today released the following statement after President Barack Obama announced that Osama bin Laden was killed by American forces in Pakistan:

"The brilliant, daring strike against Osama bin Laden will hopefully provide some closure for the families of the victims of 9/11 and be a platform for a new era of international cooperation to end the scourge of terrorism. Our intelligence, military and special forces - particularly the Navy Seals - who carried out this operation deserve our thanks and praise for their steadfast pursuit of bin Laden, refusing to be discouraged over 10 long years.

"President Obama made capturing or killing Osama bin Laden a priority for the CIA in the war on terror, and both he and our intelligence community deserve a tremendous amount of credit today for bringing to justice the most wanted man in the world."
