Congresswoman Lois Capps issued a statement about the death of Osama Bin Laden.
In it, Capps says her thoughts are, “with our men and women in uniform, and their families, who have sacrificed so long in the struggle to keep us safe, as well as the victims of the September 11th attacks, and their families, who despite this welcome news, will never be whole again.”
Capps praised The President for his leadership and the “outstanding” service of the military and intelligence communities who contributed to the operation.
The Congresswoman says she hopes “dramatic changes” in the Arab world provide an opportunity for change. But, she cautions that we must “remain vigilant” as the news “sinks in.”
