Despite a time of hyper-partisanship, politicians across the nation are putting aside differences to congratulate the troops and intelligence personnel who found and killed Osama Bin Laden over the weekend. US Representative Sue Myrick (NC-09) released this statement today:

“We owe a debt of gratitude to our troops and our intelligence officials for finally bringing Osama Bin Laden to justice, and I want to thank them for their tireless work and untold sacrifice in keeping our country safe.

“However, as the President said last night, we must not waiver in our commitment to bring an end to terrorism around the world, especially in the Arabian Peninsula and Yemen where al-Qaeda continues to gain strength. While we can celebrate the end of Osama Bin Laden’s reign over al-Qaeda, we must remain vigilant in our efforts to ensure the safety and security of the American people”.
