"Republican Rep. Walter Jones (NC) told Raw Story that the death of Osama bin Laden gives the United States an opportunity to 'declare victory' and pull out of Afghanistan. ... 'If bin Laden was the leader of al Qaeda, well we took the leader out. And there are so few al Qaeda in Afghanistan, their presence is so limited,' added Jones, a vocal opponent of the Afghan occupation. 'We could declare victory today. We have eliminated the leader of al Qaeda, bin Laden. He's now dead. So let's declare victory and start bringing our troops home.'" (05/03/11)
