In His Own Words: Congressman West Statement on the U.S. Capture and Killing of Osama bin Laden


Congressman West Statement on the U.S. Capture and Killing of Osama bin Laden

(WASHINGTON)— Congressman Allen West (FL-22) released the following statement tonight:

“Congratulations to President Obama and his National Security Team for the capture and killing of the world’s most dangerous and evil criminal mastermind, Osama bin Laden. 

Our appreciation and gratitude goes out to General Petreaus and the brave men and women in theater.  Our Special Operations team executed a flawless, cross border operation, proving once again, our American Armed Forces are the most skilled, organized and highly trained forces in the world.

Although this is a time of exuberance, rejoicing and healing, America, as well as our allies, must be vigilant and on guard for retaliatory attacks from the extreme Islamic world.  What strongly concerns me is that bin Laden was not found hiding in a remote cave, but in an urban area of Pakistan where the Pakistan Army’s premier training institution operates. This is a war that is no where close to being over.”
