American remains a nation at war, threatened continually by those who seek our destruction. Congressman Sessions is committed to promoting policies that make American stronger and safer.
Congressman Sessions supported President Obama's decision to send additional troops to Afghanistan because he believes that disrupting and defeating the Taliban is not only possible but critical to our mission to stabilize the region. He understands the threats posed by Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.
Congressman Sessions opposes efforts by the Obama Administration to transfer enemy combatants at Guantanamo Bay to U.S. soil and believes that military tribunals -- not civil courts -- are the proper venue to try these terror suspects.
Congressman Sessions supports legislative efforts to strengthen our national security by pursuing important objectives:
Preventing regimes and terrorists that seek chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons from threatening the U.S. and the world.
Preventing rogue regimes like Iran and North Korea and states that harbor terrorist organizations from acquiring nuclear weapons.
Shutting down terrorist camps, disrupting terrorist plans, and bringing more terrorists to justice.
