Potential GOP presidential candidates react to bin Laden's death - CNN.com
Minnesota Republican U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann
"Tonight's news does not bring back the lives of the thousands of innocent people who were killed that day by Osama bin Laden's horrific plan, and it does not end the threat posed by terrorists, but it is my hope that this is the beginning of the end of Sharia-compliant terrorism."
Former GOP Alaska Gov: Sarah Palin
"Thank you, American men and women in uniform. You are America's finest and we are all so proud. Thank you for fighting against terrorism."
Former U.S. Sen Rick Santorum, R-Pennsylvania
"This is extraordinary news for all freedom loving people of the world, and I commend all those involved for this historic triumph. Americans have waited nearly 10 years for the news of Osama bin Laden's death. And while this is a very significant objective that cannot be minimized, the threat from Jihadism does not die with bin Laden."
