In a statement issued following President Obama’s announcement of bin Laden’s  death, the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said:

“We join our fellow citizens in welcoming the announcement that Osama  bin Laden has been eliminated as a threat to our nation and the world through  the actions of American military personnel. As we have stated repeatedly since  the 9/11 terror attacks, bin Laden never represented Muslims or Islam. In fact,  in addition to the killing of thousands of Americans, he and Al Qaeda caused the  deaths of countless Muslims worldwide. We also reiterate President Obama’s clear  statement tonight that the United States is not at war with Islam.”

CAIR coordinated one of the first joint American Muslim statements condemning  the 9/11 terror attacks, issued just hours after they occurred.
