HARRISBURG, Pa., May 2, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Tom Corbett today issued the following statement in reaction to the death of terrorist leader Osama bin Laden:
"Last night, American justice was vindicated alongside American bravery when Special Forces located, did battle with, and killed the terrorist Osama bin Laden.
"Nothing we say today can come close to matching the eloquence with which the actions of our armed forces spoke last night. Americans remember. There is no waiting them out. What happened on Sept. 11, 2001, will not be forgotten. The message remains: the injustice of terror will be answered by the justice of American response.
"Pennsylvanians today are very proud of American forces for taking out the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, which not only scarred our nation, but also Pennsylvania soil. We will never forget the brave heroes of Flight 93, who gave their lives in a field near Shanksville and thwarted an attack on the U.S. Capitol."
