Holder says bin Laden death marks historic progress

By Pete Yost
Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder has told Congress that the killing of Osama bin Laden marks historic progress by the U.S. government in protecting the American people from terrorism.

Holder's comments to the House Judiciary Committee marked the first appearance before Congress by an Obama administration Cabinet official since the mission targeting bin Laden was carried out successfully.

The attorney general told the Republican-controlled House Judiciary Committee that the successful completion of the hunt for bin Laden was the result of an almost decade-long effort that spanned two administrations.
