(Mr. POE of Texas asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.)
Mr. POE of Texas. Mr. Speaker, the long arm of American justice has found the pawn of Satan. The father of al Qaeda, the leader of terrorists, has met his maker, and May 1, 2011, was judgment day. Osama bin Laden was the emblem of all the evil and hatred that exists in this world. The men and women of our military and intelligence community are to be commended for their persistent, relentless dedication to finding and eliminating this monster from the Earth.
This news brings some comfort to the families of the thousands of people who died in the attacks on September 11 and those who have died in the war on terror.
Bin Laden's death is a decisive victory for America. While this momentous event brings us a sense of satisfaction, we must remember that there are more evildoers in the world who want to continue a crusade of hate and murder.
Those people have heard our message loud and clear today: If you attack America, justice will be done, because justice is what we do in the U.S.A.
And that's just the way it is.
