Congressman Gary Miller issued the following statement in response to the death of Osama bin Laden:
"Like all Americans, I was overjoyed to learn that the monster responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent men, women, and children here and across the globe has been brought to justice. It truly is a remarkable day for the United States and freedom loving individuals everywhere.
I would like to commend our armed forces and the intelligence community without whom this accomplishment would not be possible. Our nation owes an incredible debt of gratitude to these brave men and women for the sacrifices they have made and their unending dedication to serve and protect our country.
While this marks a tremendous victory in the war on terror, al Qaeda is larger than just one individual. It is imperative that we remain vigilant in our efforts to root out and bring to justice those who seek to do us harm."
