Virginia politicians commend U.S. forces for Osama bin Laden’s death

Virginia’s elected officials released statements of support for the military undertaking that ultimately resulted in Osama bin Laden’s death on May 1.
U.S. Senator Mark Warner (D) said he commended “our military and intelligence professionals for the coordinated and painstaking work that was responsible for tracking down Osama bin Laden.
“Bin Laden was behind the tragedies in New York, Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon in Northern Virginia on September 11th, 2001, the bombing of the Norfolk-based USS Cole in 2000 and countless other acts of terror that have killed thousands of innocent people.
Rep. Frank Wolf (R-10th) said, “Justice, indeed, has been served.  The killing of Osama bin Laden is critically important in the United States’ fight against terrorism and I want to congratulate and thank the hardworking men and women in our armed services and in the intelligence community who have dedicated themselves day-in and day-out to bringing our enemies to justice….”
Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-11th) said the “secret U.S. government operation is a significant development in our war against Al Queda.”
All three of the officials agreed the United States must remain vigilant against terror.
