WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans say the death of Osama bin Laden in a raid on his Pakistan compound should send a strong message to other terrorists.
In the GOP weekly radio and Internet message, Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown praised years of diligent work by the military and by intelligence professionals to pinpoint bin Laden's location.
He says the al-Qaida leader's death "will not be lost on other terrorists."
He warns that "any escape they make will be temporary. Any sanctuary they find will be uncovered."
Brown says the U.S. will deal with those who threaten its citizens "on our terms, however long it takes."
The Senator also praised the participants in the operation and all U.S. troops fighting overseas.
