Senator Scott Brown On America's Fight Against Terror.

05/07/2011 - Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) Delivers Weekly GOP Address On America's Fight Against Terror.

05.07.2011 - In the Weekly Republican Address, Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown, a 31-year member of the Massachusetts Army National Guard, discusses the successful U.S. military operation to kill Osama bin Laden.

He says, "Last Sunday night, we heard President Obama deliver the message that Americans have been waiting for since September 11, 2001. It's a very rare thing when so many people across the world observe the loss of life with something other than regret. But this man, the late Osama bin Laden, had chosen his fate long before in a life filled with cruelty. If he expected mercy when our forces found him that was asking much more than he was ever known to give. This was a man who rejoiced in the suffering and death of others, who set in motion all the horror and grief of 9/11 and considered it just a start. He was a teacher of evil, and now, for him, the lesson is over....None of this can compensate for the murder of bin Laden's victims. Nor will it ease the sorrow of those who still mourn. But it sure counts for something, and it's always a victory when Justice has the final word."

Sen. Brown points out, ""Bin Laden's killing was the result of coordinated efforts going back many years. It was the dramatic conclusion of patient intelligence gathering begun long before, and the work of a military that is second to none. The operation was a model of sustained, concentrated military action, and the example will not be lost on other terrorists. Any escape they make will be temporary. Any sanctuary they find will be uncovered. Those who harm or threaten the American people will be dealt with, on our terms, however long it takes. This was the pledge of President George W. Bush in the days after 9/11, and he kept it in seven years of relentless, decisive action against the al-Qaeda network. In the case of bin Laden, it fell to President Obama to give the final order. He did so calmly, swiftly, and decisively. It was a fine moment for our commander-in-chief and for our country."

And Sen. Brown emphasizes, "Above all, this past week has reminded us of the skill and special courage of those who choose to take on the toughest missions in service to America. Our combat forces are the ones we call when the need is the greatest. They give their all, and seek no special praise for what they do. They're the best we have, and what great news it was on Sunday night that the mission to kill bin Laden succeeded, and every man came back safely."   -
