Tim Pawlenty Statement on the Death of Osama bin Laden

Statement from Tim Pawlenty of the death of Osama bin Laden:

MINNEAPOLIS — GOP presidential hopeful Tim Pawlenty is calling Osama bin Laden’s death “terrific news for freedom and justice.”

Pawlenty issued a statement saying the news fulfills the promise made by President George W. Bush after the Sept. 11 attacks that the U.S. would bring bin Laden to justice.

The former governor of Minnesota also congratulated Obama “for a job well done.”

Pawlenty also said, “America will never shrink from the fight and ultimately those who seek to harm us face only defeat. Today, justice is done, but the fight against radical Islamic terrorism is not yet over.”
