Thompson: Bin Laden's Death a 'Defining Moment in Our Nation's History'

Posted By on Mon, May 2, 2011 at 9:38 AM

Mike ThompsonCongressman Mike Thompson last night issued an ebullient statement on the death of Osama bin Laden. "The search for the world's most wanted terrorist has finally ended," he declared.

The impact of Bin Laden's death cannot be overstated. For over two decades, Bin Laden and his terrorist network have brought death and destruction to communities around the world. This is a defining moment in our nation's history and, I hope, a turning point in the ongoing war on terrorism.

I would like to thank the intelligence community and our Armed Forces for their hard work bringing Bin Laden to justice. While our fight against terror is far from over, I am hopeful that Bin Laden's death will bring us one step closer to peace.
