President Obama: Statement on Death of Osama bin LadenThe Veterans Site
Kudos are due to Navy Seal Team #6 and the professional surgical strike that they undertook to take down Osama bin Laden. Their bravery and their training made this event a rapid, precise, and successful strike against the master-mind of terror. We thank President Barack Obama for his courage to make this call as well. The patience of the intelligence community and the direction of the President achieved the greatest blow to date on the forces of terror. Thanks to the Navy Seals, to the military and our veterans, the intelligence community and the President who have fought to keep our nation and the world free and safe.
