Mitt Romney’s statement on the anniversary of Osama bin Laden’s death:
Today marks the one year anniversary of the mission that brought Osama bin Laden to justice. That mission was the culmination of nearly a decade of hard work and sacrifice by our men and women in the military and intelligence communities. I commend all those who planned and conducted the bin Laden raid, and I applaud President Obama for giving the go ahead for the mission. Let us never forget the thousands of innocents who perished on September 11, 2001, or the brave servicemen and women who have given their lives to defeat those who would do harm to our country. They, and their families, are forever in our thoughts and prayers.
UPDATE: While Romney stays gracious, Senator John McCain was not so kind about Obama’s recent efforts to politicize bin Laden’s death. “I’ve had the great honor of serving in the company of heroes,” McCain said in an interview with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly last night. “And, you know the thing about heroes, they don’t brag.”
