Washington, August 1, 2022
WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Monday, U.S. Congressman Mike Waltz (FL-6) released the following statement regarding the death of Ayman al-Zawahiri:
“Ayman al-Zawahiri has met a deserved justice after decades of orchestrating terrorist attacks against innocent lives. After helping plan the September 11th attacks against our homeland and countless other acts of terror, his days of menacing the world are over.
“I want to congratulate the Department of Defense, intelligence community, and the Administration for carrying out this successful operation.
“It is notable that Zawahiri felt safe enough to return to Afghanistan after spending decades in hiding. This is also a stark reminder that Al Qaeda is continuing to plot further attacks again our country. The intelligence community has been clear that they fully intend to attack our homeland again. The threat of global terrorism has not gone away. We must remain vigilant against those who continue to wage war against our freedoms and country.”
