Rep. Gohmert’s Statement on the Death of Osama Bin Laden

Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement today regarding the death of Osama bin Laden:

“Americans will forever remember today. The death of Osama bin Laden is a great victory for the American people. It is a day to be truly grateful to those who serve in and assist our United States military. It is also a time to revere those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in our fight against the radical Islamists who declared war upon us.

After decades of murderous attacks by radical jihadists against the United States, our courageous warriors have struck a blow for all who love true freedom. Although bin Laden’s death is a great triumph over a remorseless murderer some thought was being divinely protected, it is imperative that we remain steadfast in our fight against those who wish to terrorize and destroy the United States and the blessings we hold dear."

Congressman Louie Gohmert is the Vice Chair of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security. Prior to being elected to serve in Congress, Louie was elected to three terms as District Judge in Smith County, Texas. He also served as Chief Justice of Texas'12th Court of Appeals.
