WASHINGTON, DC ( release ) Tonight we learn Osama bin Laden, the al Qaeda ringleader responsible for the unthinkable attack on America on 9/11, has met his fate.

While the fall of one individual can never erase the terror experienced in our Country, our State, on that day, this is a historic moment delivering hope for a more peaceful tomorrow. \

It is moments like these that we reflect on the sacrifices of our first responders and military and are profoundly grateful for the people and freedoms that make this nation great.
