"Finally after ten long years, the maniacal founder of the Al-Qaeda terrorist network who had the blood of thousands of Americans on his hands has met his end," said Castor. "President Obama and the outstanding men and women in America's intelligence and armed forces, especially those in Special Operations, remained focused on bringing Osama bin Laden to justice - and today justice was done."
Rubio adds, "Just as every American will never forget where we were when America was attacked on 9/11, this moment will forever be remembered by each one of us as the day justice for that tragedy was finally served.
"I congratulate our intelligence and military communities on this monumental operation. Their persistence and relentlessness in tracking Osama Bin Laden down have finally brought us this long awaited event.
"While this diabolical terrorist's death at America's hands is a moment to celebrate, we must never forget the serious terrorist threats that remain and will demand an enduring vigilance."
