WASHINGTON, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–May 1, 2011. Assistant Senate Majority Leader Dick Durbin (D-IL) released the following statement tonight after President Obama announced that Osama bin Laden has been killed.
“I was advised by Vice President Biden this Sunday evening that Osama bin Laden has been killed. Though this is not the end of the threat of terrorism, it is a clear warning to our enemies that when they threaten and kill Americans, they will be pursued and held accountable. Our nation owes a great debt of gratitude to our intelligence community and military for pursuing this manhunt for almost ten years and successfully eliminating the most high profile terrorist on earth. Those who believed bin Laden and his network were invincible will now awaken to a new reality.”
