Westmoreland: ‘This Is a Great Day for America’

McDonough, GA --  Last night, almost ten years after the terrorist attacks on September 11th, American troops raided a compound in Pakistan that resulted in the death of al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden.  As the leader of al-Qaeda, Bin Laden was behind the attacks on September 11th, the deadly attack on the USS Cole, and many other attacks on Americans around the world.  Below is Congressman Westmoreland’s statement.

“Today is a great day for America. After years of searching for the terrorist behind the most massive strike on American soil since World War II, we have finally killed Osama Bin Laden. This is a huge victory for our troops and I would like to personally thank them for all they have done for us. This historic victory is also due to our Intelligence Community and all of our international partners in the War on Terror. Without their work and support, we would never have been able to achieve this. The backbone of al-Qaeda is no more,” stated Westmoreland.
