BALL ISSUES STATEMENT ON OSAMA BIN LADEN DEATH: Demands Federal Government Immediately Elevate Levels of Protection

“Our troops and special forces have once again made our nation proud. Nearly 10 years after the atrocity committed on 9-11, we now have closure for one chapter in our long war against al-Qaeda. The federal government must immediately renew all efforts to protect New York in light of this news. History has proven al-Qaeda’s desire to stage strategic, retaliatory attacks and we must be doubly prepared heading into the 10 year anniversary of 9-11.

“My heart goes out to the families of those who were killed and I pray that the long overdue death of this murdering deviant brings some closure to their broken hearts. As our intelligence, law enforcement and military communities continue to sacrifice deeply and personally, let us continue our efforts as a state, city and nation to root out the network of terror that exists beyond any one man, and set our minds to craft policies that ensure a future Bin Laden is never again spawned. May God continue to bless America and her great people.”
