Robert Hurt issues statement on death of bin Laden

U.S. Rep. Robert Hurt, R-5th, released a statement Monday morning regarding the death of Osama bin Laden.

“The death of Osama bin Laden marks a great victory in the War on Terror and is welcomed news for all Americans," Hurt said.

"It is my hope that this announcement brings some amount of justice and closure to the families of the victims of Sept. 11 and to those who have lost loved ones throughout the War on Terror.

“As we remain vigilant in our fight against terrorism and continue our efforts to protect our country from those who seek to do us harm, we will be forever grateful to the brave men and women of our military and intelligence community whose hard work, dedication, and sacrifice helped bring Osama bin Laden to justice. I want to commend President Obama, President Bush, and their teams for their resolve in seeing this mission through to its success.”
