Congressman Cantor Statement On Death Of Osama Bin Laden

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Eric Cantor (VA-07) tonight issued the following statement regarding the news that Osama Bin Laden has been killed:

“Nearly a decade ago, in the days after 9/11, President Bush said, ‘Whether we bring our enemies to justice or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done.’ Tonight, we’ve learned that justice has been done. The man with the blood of more than 3,000 Americans on his hands, the man who forced us to begin to think the unthinkable – is now dead.

“Families who lost loved ones at the hands of Bin Laden and his terrorist organization have grieved for far too long and this sends a signal that America will not tolerate terrorism in any form. Many Virginians were directly affected by the devastating attacks on the Pentagon on September 11th and the bombing of the USS Cole homeported in Norfolk and those lost will never be forgotten.

“The men and women of our armed forces and intelligence community have fought valiantly for the last decade and this is a major victory and testament to their dedication. I commend President Obama who has followed the vigilance of President Bush in bringing Bin Laden to justice. While this is no doubt a major event in our battle against terrorism, we will not relent in our fight against terror and our efforts to keep America safe and secure.”
