BOISE, Idaho (AP) — U.S. Sen. Jim Risch says the death of Osama bin Laden is good for America and vindication for the Sept. terrorist attacks led by Al-Qaida.
The Idaho Republican told KTVB-TV the operation that led to bin-Laden's death sends a message that America is committed to justice — no matter how long it takes.
President Obama said Sunday that a small team of Americans carried out an attack in Pakistan and took custody of bin Laden's remains.
Risch, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, says bin-Laden's death also means America must be cautious about Al-Qaida-led reprisals.
U.S. Rep. Mike Simpson said while the news is worth celebrating, it is important to remember the victims of terrorism.
U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador told KTVB now is the time for the U.S. to begin pulling out of Afghanistan.
