Sanders Comments on U.S. Success in Killing Osama Bin Laden

OKLAHOMA CITY – State Rep. Mike Sanders today praised U.S. troops for successfully killing the man who planned the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

“The September 11 attacks made a deep impression on all Americans and I think we will sleep better knowing that Osama bin Laden is dead,” Sanders, R-Kingfisher, said. “Terrorism does not end with his death, but as a nation we can celebrate knowing that our U.S. troops have struck a major blow to the Al-Quaeda network. Osama bin Laden’s death adds to our resolve, while weakening that of our enemies around the world.”

Sanders was in the White House, serving as Director of Interns, on Sept. 11, 2001. He said he remembers the terror and uncertainty everyone felt at the time of the attacks.

“People were deeply disturbed by the implications of the attacks and those of us who were so close to it were devastated by the loss of life,” Sanders said. “Our nation may be divided along political lines, but I believe there were few Americans who did not feel the impact of that terrible day.”
