The death of terrorist Osama bin Laden is an “historic moment,” but “we must remain steadfast in our mission to eradicate” terrorism worldwide, a U.S. Senator from Georgia said.
“This is an historic moment that brings to a close an unfortunate chapter in American history,” U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., said in a statement. “This day comes as a result of the hard work by the Central Intelligence Agency, the national security agencies and especially our military.
“We have hunted down and killed the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, but we must not stop here,” Isakson added. “The threat of terrorism still exists and we must remain steadfast in our mission to eradicate it around the globe.”
Bin Laden was killed by U.S. Navy Seals after a firefight at a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, outside of Islamabad, Fox News reported. He was buried at sea.
