WILMINGTON — U.S. Representative John Carney released the following statement tonight following the news of the death of Osama bin Laden:
“Nearly ten years after the horrific attacks of September 11th, Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of those attacks, has finally been killed. I commend the Obama Administration, the CIA and the U.S. military for their actions.
“This is a day to remember — and an important milestone in the ongoing war on terror. This should strengthen our resolve as we continue to protect the nation from serious threats from around the globe. We must remain vigilant in an extremely dangerous world.
“As always, we continue to thank our troops for their incredible sacrifice and tireless efforts defending the country. We pray for their continued success and a safe return home.”
