As reported by Bret Baier, below is the statement released tonight by Former President George W. Bush on news of the death of Usama Bin Laden by U.S. forces:
Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that American forces killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of the al Qaeda network that attacked America on September 11, 2001. I congratulated him and the men and women of our military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to this mission. They have our everlasting gratitude. This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.

ON THE SCENE at Ground Zero:
“Lower Manhattan Feels Different Today…”
Lower Manhattan feels different today. It has its usual hustle and bustle, but it’s definitely different. There’s a swagger that’s been lacking since that fateful day almost 10 years ago when the towers fell. I was here that morning, reporting for Fox, an eyewitness to one of the most awful chapters in our country’s history. And I’ve been here many times since then, both as a New York City resident and as a journalist. Downtown was a fun and happening place, but its usual bravado was missing. Being down here today, talking to New Yorkers and visitors alike, I can happily report, it’s back!
