Washington, DC -- Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA) Ranking Member on House Appropriations Committee's Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and related agencies releases the following statement regarding the news of the death of Osama Bin Laden.
"Justice has been served. Osama bin Laden, the man responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent Americans is dead, thanks to the relentless efforts of President Obama and American security forces. Our thanks to the brave men and women who serve in our military and security forces who put their lives on the line in the successful pursuit of the mastermind of the 9/11 terror attacks.
"The President kept his word pledging in 2007 to send American forces to hunt down this heinous terrorist wherever he was hiding even in Pakistan if need be. I join with all Americans in thanking the President for making the demise of Osama Bin Laden his number one priority in the war on terror."
