Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) issued the following statement upon the apparent capture of Abu Farraj al-Libbi in Pakistan:
“The capture of Abu Farraj al-Libbi by Pakistani government forces is an important accomplishment in the fight against the Al Qaeda extremist threat.
I congratulate Pakistani forces for their role in apprehending al-Libbi.
Americans should also be proud of the men and women of our military, our intelligence community, and other government agencies for their contribution in bringing this terrorist to justice and for all of their efforts in the war on terror. Today’s capture is a success for them and for all Americans.”
