Florida Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio offered his thoughts on the American forces killing of terrorist Osama bin Laden moments after President Barack Obama made the announcement.
"Just as every American will never forget where we were when America was attacked on 9/11, this moment will forever be remembered by each one of us as the day justice for that tragedy was finally served,” said Rubio.
"I congratulate our intelligence and military communities on this monumental operation. Their persistence and relentlessness in tracking Osama Bin Laden down have finally brought us this long awaited event,” added Rubio. "While this diabolical terrorist's death at America's hands is a moment to celebrate, we must never forget the serious terrorist threats that remain and will demand an enduring vigilance."
