Grendell resolution aims to recognize effort to eliminate Osama Bin Laden

State Sen. Tim Grendell has introduced a resolution in the Ohio General Assembly in Columbus that aims to commend and honor those responsible for the successful U.S. operation that killed al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden May 1.

Grendell, R-Chester Township, said Senate Resolution 71 honors Navy Seal Team 6, the U.S. Armed Forces, the intelligence community, the Bush Administration and the Obama Administration.

"This resolution also acknowledges those who have sacrificed their lives for this cause, and the people of 9/11 who suffered and/or died at the hands of this terrorist," Grendell said. "This welcomed news followed years of tireless efforts by our government to bring to justice those responsible for attacking this country on Sept. 11, 2011, and the numerous attacks before and since.

"Although we may never know all of their identities, it is appropriate to thank each and every one who made this operation a success."
