“Today, Americans welcome the news of Osama Bin Laden’s death, one decade after the tragedy of September 11th.
I want to commend President Obama, our men and women in uniform, and 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.
The death of Osama bin Laden is historic, but the fight against terrorism continues. As President Obama said yesterday, ‘Let us think back to the sense of unity that prevailed on 9/11. I know that it has, at times, frayed. Yet today’s achievement is a testament to the greatness of our country and the determination of the American people.’
Indeed, this great milestone against terrorism reminds us that we must remain united against the forces that divide us within our borders and abroad.”
