Former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton issued statements earlier on the death of Osama bin Laden. Now, former vice presidential candidate and reality star Sarah Palin has issued a statement via Facebook:
"Americans tonight are united in celebration and gratitude. God bless all the brave men and women in our military and our intelligence services who contributed to carrying out the successful mission to bring bin Laden to justice and who laid the groundwork of the years to make this victory possible. It's a testament to the hardwork and dedication of these brave Americans who relentlessly hunted hunted down our enemy.
This is a victory for the American people, for the victims who were heartlessly murdered on September 11 and in Al Qaeda's other numerous attacks and for all the peace-loving people of the world.
May God bless our troops and our intelligence services, God bless America!"
