Congressman Yarmuth's Statement on Death of Osama bin Laden

(Washington, DC)Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-03) issued the following statement in response to the news that Osama bin Laden had been killed:

“The death of Osama bin Laden stands as our nation's most significant strike in the fight against al-Qaeda to date and a military victory unrivaled for decades. While we hear so much about what divides this country, there is no question that with this historic victory, America stands united, as one.  We stand with the thousands who were killed in the tragedies of September 11, with the families who lost loved ones, and with the brave men and women of our military and intelligence community who fought and sacrificed to protect our nation and to bring this murderer to justice. We will never forget the pain and loss of that terrible day in 2001, but now, the world will always remember that when things seemed darkest, the United States of America never let up, never gave in, never stopped fighting until success was achieved -- just as we always have and as we will continue to do.”
