Washington, D.C. (May 1, 2011) – U.S. Rep. Peter T. King (R-NY), Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, issued the following statement on the killing of Osama bin Laden:
“I commend President Obama on the announcement of the killing of Osama bin Laden.
“Today, the American people have seen justice. The leader of the United States’ top enemy has gotten what he deserves for orchestrating the deaths of nearly 3,000 innocent Americans on September 11, 2001.
“In 2001, President Bush said ‘we will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail.’ President Bush deserves great credit for putting action behind those words. President Obama deserves equal credit for his resolve in this long war against al-Qaeda.
“This great success would not have been possible without the tireless work of countless brave men and women who have served around the world in this War on Terror.”
