Today, Congressman Kenny Marchant (TX-24) issued the following statement after hearing that Osama bin Laden had been killed.
"The news of Osama bin Laden's death is welcome news not only for those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001, but for our entire nation. Nearly ten years after the heinous attacks, we showed the world that America follows through on its missions. While this is a victory for freedom in the Global War on Terror, we must remain vigilant because the threat from radical extremists continues. I want to congratulate our military and our intelligence community for their dogged determination in continuing the nearly decade-long pursuit of Osama bin Laden."
