WASHINGTON, May 2, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which represents a New York City firefighter who survived the 9-11 terrorist attacks, said today the U.S. military mission that killed Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind 9-11, represents a significant victory for the war on terror and underscores the fact that America's commitment to seeking justice is never-ending.
"The death of Osama bin Laden is not only a victory for the war on terror, it sends an important message around the world - that no matter how long it takes, America's resolve never waivers, America's commitment to seeking justice is never ending," said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ.
"Our thanks go to the U.S. military who took part in this mission as well as the men and women around the globe who fight for our freedoms - and to President Obama and President Bush for their dedication in bringing Osama bin Laden to justice. While there are many challenges ahead with radical Islamists and the ongoing threat of terrorism at home and abroad, we should cherish this moment - this accomplishment. Now it is time to redouble our efforts to protect our freedoms from those who want to destroy our way of life."
The ACLJ represents Tim Brown, a firefighter and first responder who survived the Twin Towers' collapse and lost nearly 100 friends, who is suing New York City, challenging plans to build an Islamic mosque at Ground Zero, saying the project should not be build on sacred, hallowed ground, where thousands died on 9-11.
Led by Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, the American Center for Law and Justice focuses on constitutional law and is based in Washington, D.C. The ACLJ is online here.
