Sen. Franken’s Statement on Operation that Killed Osama bin Laden

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Tonight, U.S. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) released the following statement regarding the operation that killed Osama bin Laden:

"This is a great day. I think every American feels very emotional about what happened in Pakistan today. Our hearts are full of pride and gratitude for all those responsible for bringing Osama bin Laden to justice, with sadness as we remember that horrific day ten years ago, and with hope as we go forward in our fight against radical jihadism. I think the president was wise to remind us of how unified we felt as a nation after 9/11 and how we can achieve anything we put our mind to if we work together. "
