Guam - On the heels of the announcement by President Barack Obama that Osama Bin Laden is dead, Guam Delegate Madeleine Bordallo said his death means that our world today is a little more secure. During a speech at the White House, President Obama said that Bin Laden was killed in a firefight in a compound deep in Pakistan. The attack was based on U.S. intelligence.

Congresswoman Bordallo commented that this does not end our determination to pursue those who threaten our nation. "Despite this positive news, we have more to do as a nation to address and eliminate the fundamental issues supporting terrorism.  Osama Bin Laden's death will serve as a rallying point for our men and women in uniform who continue to serve our nation in harm's way. 

"His death also closes a painful chapter in our nation's history and for the families of those who lost loved ones on 9/11 or in missions supporting our global war on terrorism.  We reflect on the lives of the men and women from Guam and our neighboring islands who gave the ultimate sacrifice against terrorism.  Tonight we are witness to yet another historical moment where the resolve of our great nation overcame tremendous obstacles," the Congresswoman stated.
