Protecting Our Nation and Staying on Offense Against Terrorists
Just this year, we have seen numerous high-profile examples of the continued efforts by terrorist organizations to infiltrate our country and execute plans to kill and harm as many Americans as possible. These murderers have no honor, no limits on whom they will target, and no hesitancy to kill women, children, and defenseless civilians.
We must continue to be vigilant, support the men and women in intelligence services who are working round the clock to uncover and foil terrorist plans, and all those serving in our armed forces across the globe. I continue to be greatly disappointed by Nancy Pelosi and the President for their lectures and accusations made against the outstanding men and women of our intelligence services.
Similarly, our country owes an immense debt of gratitude to those working on the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan. I fully support General Stanley McChrystal's plan to surge more troops into Afghanistan so we will have the opportunity for success just like we did in Iraq.
I find it appalling that Democrat leaders in Congress and the Administration continue to play games and point fingers instead of listening to our Generals in the field who are working to support our troops in Afghanistan and execute a counterinsurgency strategy to defeat the Taliban and kill or capture Al Qaeda leaders. Every day that the Commander in Chief wastes by not fully supporting our troops is another day our men and women serving in Afghanistan are unnecessarily put at risk.
As your Congressman, I will demand full funding and support for Gen. McChrystal's plans so that we can continue to stay on offense to kill, capture, or eliminate terrorists wherever they may be hiding.
