Franken Reacts to bin Laden's Death

Minnesota Senator Al Franken reacting to the news a U.S. military operation had killed Osama bin Laden said, "This is a great day."

The DFL-er said our hearts are full of pride and gratitude for all those responsible for bringing Osama bin Laden to justice, with sadness as we remember that horrific day ten years ago, and with hope as we go forward in our fight against radical jihadism.

Senator Franken said the president was wise to remind us of how unified we felt as a nation after 9/11 and how we can achieve anything we put our mind to if we work together.

Republican Congressman Chip Cravaack of the 8th District offered the following statement, "I applaud the amazing men and women of our military and our intelligence agencies who have worked for almost 10 years to make sure Osama bin Laden – the perpetrator of the worst terrorist attack in American history – was finally brought to justice for his heinous crimes. This may not end the threat posed to us by global terrorism, but it is a clear victory for America and freedom loving people throughout the world.”
