Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (TX-26) released the following statement on the death of Osama bin Laden:
"Almost ten years after the attacks on September 11 that took almost 3,000 lives, Osama bin Laden has been brought to justice. To our brave men and women who have been fighting for our freedom and those who have given the ultimate sacrifice, and to our intelligence agencies that have provided their tireless support, I want to thank them for their efforts that led to this success. I also want to thank President Obama, as well as President Bush, for their leadership.
"The death of bin Laden is great news for the security of America and marks a key achievement in our efforts to defeat al Qaeda. America will remain vigilant in our fight against al Qaeda and other radical extremism around the world, and we will continue to do everything we can to protect the American people."
