Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) issued the following statement on the death of Osama Bin Laden, the leader of al-Qaeda and mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, which murdered nearly 3,000 Americans:

“I hail, with the utmost respect, the courage and dedication of our Armed Forces and intelligence agencies who have brought long awaited justice to the victims of the September 11th attacks.  While al-Qaeda is still a dangerous foe, all Americans can take solace in removing this unrepentant murderer from the world.  The road to winning the War on Terror is long and hard, but it is winnable, and this is a major milestone towards victory.”
