McCarthy Statement on the Death of Osama Bin Laden

Washington, D.C. – House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (CA-22) issued the following statement regarding the death of Osama Bin Laden:

“The terrorist leader behind the September 11th attacks on American soil, Osama Bin Laden, represented a threat not only to our nation, but to those seeking freedom and democracy around the world. Our brave troops have done a tremendous job in bringing an end to this symbol of hatred and intolerance, never wavering in their commitment to protect our nation. I join the President and all Americans in commending the members of our armed forces and intelligence community for the sacrifices they’ve made, and continue to make, on behalf of our security and freedom.”
