Delegate Comstock’s Statement on the 

Death of Osama Bin Laden


McLEAN, VIRGINIA – Delegate Barbara Comstock (VA-34) issued the following statement regarding the news that terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden has been killed:

Days after September 11, 2001, President Bush said, “Whether we bring our enemies to justice or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done.”


The news of the demise of Osama Bin Laden is an incredible victory for the American people.  This victory in the War on Terror is a tribute to the thousands of men and women of our armed forces and intelligence community who have fought for a decade to bring justice to Bin Laden.  I also want to congratulate President Obama and President Bush for their leadership over the past decade and the bipartisan commitment in Congress to stay the course in bringing Bin Laden to justice.  Having served as a senior Justice Department official following September 11th, I also want to congratulate the thousands of dedicated federal, state and local employees throughout our government whose vigilance has kept us safe, as well as made this day possible.  
We will always remember the horror of that day when we experienced the worst attack on American soil.  This is now some comfort to the many of us who lost loved ones on September 11th that a measure of justice has been served.  We now must remain vigilant to continue to fight terrorists around the globe.  The threat continues and we must never let down our guard.
