WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) released the following statement today on Osama bin Laden.

“As Americans, we will never forget the September 11 attacks, the 3,000 lives lost, and the effect on countless families across our nation. But now, nearly 10 years after that tragic day, the world's most wanted terrorist will no longer threaten our nation's democracy and freedom. This is a victory for all Americans and a testament to the sacrifice of our service members and their families, and the American intelligence community.”
