MADISON-Following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate in response to the military action of American forces that killed Osama bin Laden.

"Only praise is appropriate for the brave American armed forces that delivered the evil of Osama bin Laden to his just end. Our nation has suffered deliberate and awful wickedness at his hands and his adherents. On our shores we may disagree, but every American, no matter the party, will join together to remember this day."
