Blumenthal Statement on the Killing of Al-Qaeda Leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri

[WASHINGTON, D.C.] –   U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) released the following statement on the killing of al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri:

“For decades, Ayman al-Zawahiri orchestrated a global campaign of terror, torture, and murder. I hope his death brings some closure to the families and loved ones of the thousands whose blood is on his hands. I remain deeply grateful to our men and women in uniform who served in the Global War on Terror and who protected us from the untold harm al-Zawahiri and al-Qaeda would have visited on the United States without their bravery. This successful operation honors that service, but we have not repaid our debt for their sacrifice until we fully treat their wounds of war – starting by passing the PACT Act.”
