Statement by Representative Thompson on the Death of Osama bin Laden

Washington, D.C. – Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson issued the following statement on the death of terrorist leader Osama bin Laden:

“I commend and thank our military, intelligence community, and special operation forces for their hard work and determination over the years that led to this success.  I also want to commend President Obama and his team, as well as former President Bush and his Administration, for their steadfast efforts to bring Osama bin Laden to justice. This demonstrates that America will not tolerate terrorism in any form and remains on the offense in the fight against global terrorist networks.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families who lost loved ones at the hands of Bin Laden and his terrorist organization.  Let this event serve as solace to all Americans impacted by the horrific events of September 11th. We must remain vigilant, remembering that we continue to face real and evolving threats in the fight against global terrorism and radical extremism.”
