State­ment on Osama bin Laden

Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE ONE -

U.S. Sen. Bernie San­ders (I-Vt.) is­sued the fol­low­ing state­ment to­day on the op­er­a­tion in Pak­istan that killed Osama bin Laden:

“The death of Osama bin Laden is a his­toric mo­ment in our fight against in­ter­na­tional terrorism and his Al Qaeda or­ga­ni­za­tion.

“I ap­plaud the ex­tra­or­di­nary brav­ery of those Amer­i­can mil­i­tary per­son­nel who par­tic­i­pated in this highly-ef­fec­tive op­er­a­tion, the in­tel­li­gence op­er­a­tion that made it pos­si­ble and the lead­er­ship of Pres­i­dent Obama. At this mo­ment, we also must not for­get the Amer­i­can men and women from Ver­mont and around the coun­try whose ser­vice and sac­ri­fice in the strug­gle to de­fend our coun­try has made us safer.”

“It is im­pos­si­ble to pre­dict the fu­ture, but I hope the death of Osama bin Laden and the growth of demo­cratic move­ments in the Mus­lim world mark a mo­men­tous turn­ing point, which leads the re­gion to­ward peace and pros­per­ity and away from terrorism, death and de­struc­tion.”
