NBCSL Commends the Obama Administration for Major Achievement in the War on Terror

NBCSL President Barbara W. Ballard (KS) releases the statement below:

This is a great day for America and for millions of innocent civilians around the world who have been terrorized by Al Qaeda. The National Black Caucus of State Legislators (NBCSL) commends President Barack Obama, this mission's special operatives, our courageous men and women in uniform, and our intelligence community for this extraordinary accomplishment of bringing Osama bin Laden to justice. While the United States must continue its efforts to keep the world safer, NBCSL hopes those who lost loved ones on 9/11 and other Al Qaeda terrorist attacks can feel a sense of closure and comfort in this news. Our thoughts and prayers are with those serving overseas, and may this bring us one step closer to
bringing our troops home quickly and safely.
We have much to accomplish together.  Learn about our legislative and private sector memberships.
