Rep. Ed Perlmutter, (D-CD7) issued this statement on Sunday night:
"This is a moment of justice. The United States took out an enormous threat to the safety and security of our country. Osama Bin Laden was the leader and symbol of Al Qaeda and the architect of 9/11. Terrorism threats still remain, but Bin Laden's death is a significant development against the war on terror and a huge blow to Al Qaeda. As President Obama said, we must continue to remain vigilant. I know our special operations forces, intelligence and homeland security community is prepared to handle threats to our security. I am proud of all of those who serve and protect our nation and their diligence, determination and unwavering courage in this ongoing battle against terrorism."
