Gillibrand Statement on Death of Osama bin Laden

May 1, 2011

“On behalf of so many New Yorkers who lost loved ones nearly a decade ago, I congratulate President Obama, our brave men and women in uniform and our intelligence community for bringing Osama bin Laden to justice. This is a tremendous victory for the world community in the fight against al Qaeda that is both deeply satisfying and historic. But we must remain vigilant. We can not take our eye off the ball in regards to security here at home or from emerging al Qaeda threats in other regions.”
