Statement From Senator Malcolm A. Smith

 May 1, 2011 is a day that all Americans will remember as the end of a dark era in our country's history.  Exactly 8 years after our former President prematurely declared: "Mission Accomplished," this President has delivered on the promise to capture Osama Bin Laden and bring justice to the families of those who lost their lives on 9/11/01. I applaud the efforts by President Obama, our National Intelligence agencies, and our international partners in this effort. Although the death of Osama Bin Laden will not bring back to life any of his innocent victims, we as Americans, can take solace in knowing that Al Qaeda is no more.
