STATEMENT BY SENATOR JOHN McCAIN ON THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT OSAMA BIN LADEN HAS BEEN KILLED

May 1, 2011

Washington, D.C.– U.S. Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), made the following statement this evening regarding the announcement made by President Obama that Osama Bin Laden has been killed:

“I am overjoyed that we finally got the world’s top terrorist.  The world is a better and more just place now that Osama bin Laden is no longer in it. I hope the families of the victims of the September 11thattacks will sleep easier tonight and every night hence knowing that justice has been done. I commend the President and his team, as well as our men and women in uniform and our intelligence professionals, for this superb achievement. 

“But while we take heart in the news that Osama bin Laden is dead, we must be mindful that al-Qaeda and its terrorist allies are still lethal and determined enemies, and we must remain vigilant to defeat them.”
