Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (CA-29) released the following statement after the President announced the death of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born leader of al Qaeda's branch in Yemen:

"Congratulations to President Obama, his national security team, and to the CIA and the U.S. Joint Special Operations Command that executed the operation to kill Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born leader of al Qaeda's branch in Yemen and the mastermind behind several attacks against the United States, including the so-called "underwear bomber," who tried to blow up a Northwest Airlines jetliner over Detroit on Christmas Day, 2009. As a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, I have the privilege to work with the men and women of our Intelligence Community. Their dedication and professionalism are extraordinary, and, as today's mission demonstrates, they work to protect all of us -- everyday and everywhere. This is certainly not the end of al Qaeda, and we must remain vigilant, but the death of al-Awlaki marks an important milestone in the struggle against al Qaeda and its affiliates."
