Intellegence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

I would like to start out by thanking you, Chairman Rogers and Mr. Ruppersberger, for refocusing the efforts of the Intel Committee on that which is critically important with the authorization and oversight for our intelligence community.

We have incredibly dedicated men and women who are putting their lives on the line every day in a way that almost all of America will never know. These individuals deserve nothing less than the full attention and help from Congress in the authorization and helping them with the programs that are necessary to continue the dramatic successes such that we've seen with Osama bin Laden.

They have successes every day, ladies and gentlemen. They're not as high profile as the one we had last week, but many of them are just as important. Without the Intelligence authorization bill, we're having them go out with one arm tied behind their backs. It's unfair to them; it's unfair to the country. In these times of turbulence, with an enemy that is bound and determined to hurt our country, we rely on our intelligence community and the great work that they do. This bill will help them do that.
