Waterloo, IA -- May 1, 2011 - Today, Congressman Bruce Braley (IA-01) released the following statement after the announcement of Osama Bin Laden's death:
"Today the world is a safer place. Tonight's announcement that Osama Bin Laden has been killed by U.S. forces is good news for all Americans. Nearly ten years after his cowardly attacks on innocent Americans and citizens of the world, and on the eighth anniversary of declaring "Mission Accomplished," we can finally close a tragic chapter in our nation's history. Our troops have made tremendous sacrifices, with many lives lost and many changed forever, and we must never forget the real cost of this war on terror."
