Known as the mastermind of the 9/11 terrorists attacks, Osama Bin Laden is dead. 1st District Congressman Tim Scott says today is a great day to be an American.
It seems like for those victims of the 9/11 attacks, this day has come not soon enough, but thankfully, it has finally come.
Scott says it may have taken some time to capture and kill Bin Laden, but he believed it would happen–eventually.
I think many people started losing hope, losing faith, but there’s no question that what our country sets out to accomplish, we can do all things. All things are possible in this nation. We are so thankful for the success of the mission. Not a single American life was lost last night, which is fantastic, on this mission.
Scott told Anne Eller of WLMA in Greenwood that he and his family are grateful.
We are very thankful to God for those men who went over into Pakistan and extracted, what I consider, the most important individual target of terrorism in the world today.
Reports say Bin Laden’s body was buried at sea after taken into U.S. custody.
