 Senator Rubio Comments On Osama Bin Laden’s Death

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio issued the following statement regarding the announcement that Osama Bin Laden has been killed by U.S. forces:

  • “Just as every American will never forget where we were when America was attacked on 9/11, this moment will forever be remembered by each one of us as the day justice for that tragedy was finally served.
  • “I congratulate our intelligence and military communities on this monumental operation. Their persistence and relentlessness in tracking Osama Bin Laden down have finally brought us this long awaited event.
  • “While this diabolical terrorist’s death at America’s hands is a moment to celebrate, we must never forget the serious terrorist threats that remain and will demand an enduring vigilance.”

LMW COMMENT (and email to Senator Rubio) …

How ungracious of you, how dishonest of you, how rigidly partisan of you to fail to include President Obama among those you congratulated for the elimination of Osama bin Laden. In contrast to President Bush at Tora Bora, this President did not let bin Laden get away. He defined the mission and set it in motion, with intelligence and courage. You, on the other hand, had an opportunity to reach for a different place, and you blew it!
