I congratulate the service members of the military, the intelligence community and US Navy SEALs who carried out the operation. A raid on Osama Bin Laden’s compound has ended with the death of the terrorist leader. The Al Qaeda commander of the first attack on the World Trade Center, the USS Cole, and the 9/11 attacks is now dead.
