BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown is calling the death of Osama bin Laden “a great day for America.”

The Republican said in a statement that the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks “has finally gotten what he deserves.”

Democratic Sen. John Kerry, Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, said bin Laden’s death closes a chapter in the nation’s war against extremists, but warned that the death does not end the threat and that the nation must remain vigilant.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Rod Fritz spoke with Sen. Brown.

Gov. Deval Patrick sent his thanks to President Obama, the soldiers and the intelligence officials who carried out the mission to get bin Laden, and called for America to unite as it did after the 9/11 attacks.

More than 200 Massachusetts residents or people with strong ties to the state died on Sept. 11, 2001.

U.S. forces raided bin Laden’s heavily guarded compound in a suburb of Pakistan’s capital late Sunday, killing him, his son and several associates.

    I don’t think Bin Laden got what he deserved, but at least he’s dead along with the message that no matter how long it takes, American troops will hunt down and kill those who would take the lives of innocent people just because they can. Too bad he can’t communicate the fact that it was all a lie about paradise and the 72 virgins. Too bad Osama…the joke is on you!!

    By having him dead ,, IF IT WAS HIM TRUELY,,,, he cheated all the thousands out of redemption. to just have the satisfaction that they could look this SOB in the face and spit upon him, To have the chance to put the crime to the face of EVIL.. By killing him sure it was part of it,,, BUT to those that have had to live for 10 years with no closer,, this was truely the hardest to handle for some. I wished he was wounded brought to the states , shackled and stripped of all his dignity, and put on display for all to see , put on trial convicted of his hate and war crimes, convicted of such crimes and heracy, given a sentance of tourture, by those he hurt, to suffer like those have had to suffer, this man NO should not live, But he should have lived long enought to face his victims, THE FAMILIES OF THOSE HE KILLED , THE CHILDREN, THE MOTHERS, FATHERS, BROTHERS, SISTERS, AUNTS, UNCLES, GRANDPARENTS, HUSBANDS & WIFES……. THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA…………. These are the victims of the crimes he commited, …

      emom, I’m sure most Americans feel exactly as you do, however, Bin Laden wouldn’t feel any remorse facing the victim’s familiy. Extremist such as him and his followers would only laugh in their faces because they feel they’ve done Alla a great service. It would have been great justice to have him brought to trial and executed for his crimes, but with the chance of him escaping, I’m glad they just wiped him off the face of the earth.
