Statement

A great success in our fight against al-Qaeda and its affiliates

Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Rep. Peter T. King, Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, issued the following statement on the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki:

“The killing of Anwar al-Awlaki is a great success in our fight against al-Qaeda and its affiliates. For the past several years, al-Awlaki has been more dangerous even than Osama bin Laden had been. The killing of al-Awlaki is a tremendous tribute to President Obama and the men and women of our intelligence community.

“Despite this vital development today, we must remain as vigilant as ever, knowing that there are more Islamic terrorists who will gladly step forward to backfill this dangerous killer.”
