September 11th reminded every American that freedom is not free. Last night marked not only to our country, but told the entire world that America has the resolve. It may take us a decade, but we will continue to follow through. It is the same resolve that we have with any challenge that this country faces. I congratulate all those who were involved. It wasn’t something that happened over night. Those works to find the courier, those individuals that did the work before in the intelligence community, for what President Bush did, and for the work that President Obama did – He had a decision that he had to make, and we thank him for the decision that he made. To the Navy Seals, going in with two helicopters, with one breaking down and still carrying out the mission. This says of the strength of the country – We’ll continue to have that resolve as we fight terrorism anywhere else in the world.
