WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, ranking member of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, issued this statement Sunday night after President Obama's announcement that the CIA has killed Osama bin Laden:

"The director of the National Counterterrorism Center informed me tonight that Osama bin Laden was killed in a U.S. operation. This welcome news is a credit to our intelligence efforts and brings to justice the architect of the attacks on our country that killed nearly 3,000 people on September 11, 2001."
