Larson Statement on Osama Bin Laden
WASHINGTON D.C.– House Democratic Caucus Chairman John B. Larson released the following statement on the announcement tonight by President Obama that Osama Bin Laden has been brought to justice:
"The most wanted man in the world has been brought to justice by the American people. It is a historic moment, rivaled only by the demise of Adolf Hitler.
"I want to commend President Obama and the men and women in uniform and in our intelligence service for their great efforts. I also want to commend President Bush, who rallied our nation in our moment of need on 9/11. Tonight’s spontaneous outbreak of national pride reminds me of the moment when Members of Congress set aside party differences and joined together on 9/11 to sing God Bless America on the steps of the Capitol. I hope we can all use this moment to come together and work to move the nation forward.
"To those who still wish us harm, let this serve as notice - if you attack our nation, if you attack our citizens, no matter how long it takes, we will bring you to justice!"
