Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-4) has released the following statement on the death of Osama Bin Laden:
"Tonight marks the end of a 10-year search for justice in the lives of the families of the 9/11 victims and the American people. Osama bin Laden is dead. Justice has been done. This mastermind of the 9/11 terrorist attacks has long been sought by American and allied forces. Although no action can compensate for the loss of loved ones, it is good to know that there will be some degree of resolution for the 9/11 families and this threat to peace and security throughout the world will no longer be engaging in acts of terror against humanity. I commend the brave individuals who carried out this mission for their dedication, professionalism, and courage."
