This is a measure of justice for the families who lost loved ones on September 11th and during the War on Terrorism. Everyone who has lost loved ones in our war should feel pride in this result in taking out the head of Al-Qaeda.
“This is a testament to the resolve of Americans to see justice served. I commend President Obama for continuing to pursue this vile terrorist and his networks. Our ultimate success in hunting down this mass murderer is a tribute to the skill and perseverance of the U.S. military and the intelligence communities, who have put themselves in danger and sacrificed much to keep our homeland safe.
