Tonight, U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-North Carolina) released the following statement on the death of Osama Bin Laden:

"The death of Osama Bin Laden marks the culmination of the greatest manhunt ever undertaken by American forces.  This is a major development in our fight against terrorism and proves our resolve to hold accountable those who harm American citizens, but we must remain vigilant and not lose focus on the overall mission and our goal of eradicating terrorist threats.  There still remains a dire threat posed by Bin Laden's followers and the seeds of hate he planted across the globe, and while we are immensely grateful for this victory, our work is far from over."
