Rep Walberg Statement on the Death of Osama bin Laden (Usama Bin Laden)
Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Walberg (R-MI) released the following statement about on the death of Osama bin Laden:
“I am satisfied that justice was accomplished by the death of Osama bin Laden at the hands of American forces. The terrorism bin Laden and his al-Qaeda associates perpetrated against the American people on 9/11 was pure evil. Justice is not always as quick as we wish, but it is certain.
We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the members of our military and intelligence community, not only for their role in yesterday’s events, but for their dedication every day. I also commend President Obama for the success of this operation, and former President George W Bush for his leadership during the early days of the War on Terror.
America must remain vigilant in our efforts and resolved in our purpose to combat the elements of radical Islam; however, yesterday’s events should be celebrated as a tremendous victory of freedom over evil.”
Tim Walberg is the US representative from the 7th District.
