U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio praised the efforts to find and kill Osama bin Laden but cautioned that the war on terrorism is not over. “I, like millions of Americans last night, watched with great enthusiasm the news that the man responsible for the murder of not just the people who suffered in 9/11 but acts of terrorism before that — was brought to justice,” the Florida Republican said Monday, according to the Sunshine State News
The freshman senator praised President Barack Obama and President George W. Bush’s policies to fight terrorism. However, he said, “The world remains a very dangerous place. The world is as dangerous today as it was yesterday and, in many respects, a bit more dangerous.”
The raid in which U.S. SEALs killed bin Laden should leave little doubt about what will happen if terrorists attack Americans, he said.
“The message to America’s enemies is pretty simple,” said Rubio. “You’ll be able to hide for a little while but America’s armed forces and intelligence community will find you and bring you to justice. That’s the way it is.”
