Senator John Cornyn’s Statement on Death of Bin Laden
Political Leaders across the country are weighing in on the death of terrorist Osama Bin Laden and U.S. Senator John Cornyn of Texas released a statement this morning on the news.
WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, today issued the following statement regarding the death of Osama bin Laden:
“In the aftermath of 9/11, President Bush promised a fearful, grieving nation that those individuals responsible for this atrocity would be brought to justice. Now, nearly a decade after those horrific attacks, President Obama informs us that justice has finally been served.
“Let this serve as a grave reminder to all those who wish to do our nation harm: If you murder Americans, you will be hunted, you will be found and you will be brought to justice. I commend the military and intelligence professionals whose tremendous efforts ended the reign of this terrorist mastermind.
“While this will never bring their loved ones back, it is my hope that this will somehow ease the pain of the families of those who were lost on September 11th, 2001.”
Senator Cornyn serves on the Finance, Judiciary, Armed Services and Budget Committees. He serves as the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee’s Immigration, Refugees and Border Security subcommittee. He served previously as Texas Attorney General, Texas Supreme Court Justice, and Bexar County District Judge.
