MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann is expressing her gratitude to the U.S. military and intelligence community after the death of Osama bin Laden.
The Republican from Minnesota says their "persistence and dedicated service has yielded success in a mission that has gripped our nation since the terrible events of 9/11."
The possible presidential hopeful says that while bin Laden's death "does not end the threat posed by terrorists," she hopes "this is the beginning of the end of Sharia-compliant terrorism."
