Congressman Mark S. Critz (PA-12) released the following statement after last night's announcement that Osama bin Laden has been killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan:

"The death of Osama bin Laden is a significant victory in our fight against al-Qaeda, and a true testament to the skill and determination of our military and intelligence communities.

"While this achievement provides some comfort to the families and friends who lost loved ones because of his horrific terrorist attacks, we must understand and recognize that the threat of terrorism still exists, and that our nation's fight against it will continue."
