BATON ROUGE - Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal congratulated President Barack Obama, his national security team and the military for the death of Osama bin Laden, calling it a "great day for America, a great day for justice around the world."

Jindal made his comments Monday.

He thanked the thousands of men and women in uniform and offered prayers to the victims of Sept. 11 and those who have died in the nation's fight against terrorism.

The governor said, "Obviously, the battle's not complete. Obviously, the war on terrorism continues, but a very, very significant victory for America."
