Issue Position: National Security
The events of September 11, 2001, were a stark reminder that we live in a dangerous world -our enemies are unpredictable, and an extremist ideology threatens our American culture.
As your Senator, I am proud to continue the Georgia tradition of having a Senator on the Senate Armed Services Committee. From this position, I have worked to make sure that Georgia's military communities are strong, and that our men and women in uniform have the tools and weapons they need to defend our freedom.
As a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, I've worked to strengthen and reform our intelligence community and to improve our information-sharing capabilities. Since 9-11, we have made significant progress in protecting our homeland.
We have disrupted terrorists' communications and their planning capabilities; and we have prevented and foiled additional terrorist attacks, even some right here in Georgia; and we have captured members of Al-Qaeda's top leadership.
But this is a never-ending battle.
When it comes to our national security, terrorists only have to get it right once.
We have to be right every single time.
None of us can afford to take our safety and our freedom for granted, and that's why I will continue to accept every leadership position and take every opportunity to work to protect our national security.
I welcome your thoughts and suggestions for ways to continue strengthening our national security.
