Congressman Crawford Statement on Death of Osama bin Laden
Congressman Rick Crawford (R-Ark.) released the following statement regarding the death of Osama bin Laden.
“Today is a monumental day in American history. Thanks to the recent tactics of the armed services and intelligence community, the mastermind of 9/11 is unable to ever hurt anyone again. Tonight, my prayers go out to the families of the victims of September 11th who were murdered by Osama bin Laden and his evil plot against America. I want to thank General Petraeus and our troops who, for years, have been fighting for justice. We must remain vigilant in protecting against any future strikes on our soil, but we can all sleep more soundly knowing the leader of the Al Qaeda can no longer do any harm.”
Congressman Rick Crawford is the first Republican elected to represent Arkansas’s First Congressional District since Reconstruction. He serves on the Agriculture and Transportation & Infrastructure Committees. Rick and his wife Stacy, both ASU alumni, reside in Jonesboro with their two children.
