Rep. Peter King's Statement on bin Laden's Death

As the news came in that Obama was calling a press conference that was originally scheduled from 10:30, I was online talking with people who were speculating about what he was going to be speaking about. Once it became clear that he'd be announcing that bin Laden had been killed, most of the folks from both sides of the aisle simply were pleased to come together to express support of our troops and satisfaction that justice had finally come (though there was one person who specifically refused to given Obama any credit). So to join in the bi-partisan spirit, I wanted to highlight the statement that U.S. Rep. Peter T. King (R-NY), Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, issued on the killing of Osama bin Laden:
“I commend President Obama on the announcement of the killing of Osama bin Laden.

“Today, the American people have seen justice. The leader of the United States’ top enemy has gotten what he deserves for orchestrating the deaths of nearly 3,000 innocent Americans on September 11, 2001.

“In 2001, President Bush said ‘we will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail.’ President Bush deserves great credit for putting action behind those words. President Obama deserves equal credit for his resolve in this long war against al-Qaeda.

“This great success would not have been possible without the tireless work of countless brave men and women who have served around the world in this War on Terror.”
As the facts are coming in there's a lot of questions about all the details surrounding the event and Pakistan's involved. If you're fascinated by mysteries like this and want to learn the skills for solving crimes, it's safe to say you should check out forensics science for some of very useful info on the topic.
