Palazzo calls Bin Laden’s death a turning point in war on terror

Mississippi Congressman Steven Palazzo is a member of the House Armed Services committee. On Monday, he returned to Washington and expected to be briefed on how America’s military took out Osama Bin Laden.

Palazzo’s office released this statement from the congressman.

“Last night’s announcement of the death of Osama bin Laden is a major turning point in the War on Terror. I hope the news will strengthen America’s resolve to bring an end to nearly ten years of conflict in Afghanistan on our terms: total victory over terror and those who harbor terrorists. As we approach the ten year mark since the horrible attacks on September 11th, 2001, I cannot help but to think of the victims and their families.
