Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin praised American troops for killing the world’s most wanted terrorist at a fundraiser for a nonprofit that supports families of fallen soldiers.

Sarah Palin, troops, bin Laden"Their courage and their determination brought us justice," Palin said, referring to those who hunted, found, and killed Osama bin Laden, the Denver Post reported Tuesday. "They know that freedom isn't free. It's a God-given right and worth fighting for."

Palin, speaking Monday at Colorado Christian University in Lakewood, lauded the policies of the former president that paved the way to kill bin Laden.

"We thank President [George W.] Bush for having made the right calls to set up this victory."

The death of the man Palin called "the public face of Islamic terrorism" struck a recurring chord throughout "Tribute to the Troops," which had been scheduled long before bin Laden's death.

About 1,000 people attended the event to raise money for the nonprofit group Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors. It provides grief counseling and other support services to the families of fallen American soldiers.
