Crapo Statement on Bin Laden Death


Washington, DC - Idaho Senator Mike Crapo released the following statement regarding the death of Osama bin Laden:

"Over the last few hours, as I have reviewed the information regarding the death of Osama bin Laden, I share the relief that Americans have expressed.  The military action that resulted in his death was impressive and carried out with precision, and we owe eternal gratitude to those who conducted that operation as well as to all those who have served in the war on terrorism for nearly ten years.  While bin Laden's death carries huge symbolism and is a blow to the al Qaeda network, it does not end the threats to our country and American citizens.  We must stand ready to guard against those who would attack us and support those who remain on the front lines of our defense at home and overseas."
