Moran Statement on Osama bin Laden


    Washington, DC – Congressman Jim Moran, Northern Virginia Democrat, released the following statement on President Obama’s announcement confirming that Osama bin Laden has been killed:

    “I congratulate President Obama, our military and intelligence communities, and in particular the service members who carried out this operation. Nearly ten years ago, our nation was forever changed by the 9/11 attacks. This was a major strategic and psychological blow to what’s left of al-Qaeda.

    “Bin Laden’s death further raises serious concerns about Pakistan’s role in the war on terror. The location of the operation, just outside their nation’s capital and in range of a major military facility, calls into question key aspects of our strategic alliance.”
