    RE: The Death of Osama Bin Laden

    “I congratulate President Obama, the men and women of our armed forces, and all those who played a role in the successful mission that resulted in the death of Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan. On September 11, 2001, thousands of New Yorkers, including many Bronxites, fell at the hands of a terrorist attack masterminded by Bin Laden, and for nearly ten years the families, friends and loved ones of those victims have had to live with the knowledge that the man who was responsible for so much loss in their lives walked the earth freely.

    “The death of Osama Bin Laden represents a significant victory for our nation, and I hope that it helps to bring closure to those who lost so much on 9/11,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
