Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2015 September 17, 2014
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-FL
"ISIS is part of the radical Islam threat, which the 9/11 Commission identified as a serious threat to U.S. national security and to world peace and stability."
Terrorism Across The Globe September 11, 2014
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"There are others that we find out that have had relations with that mosque that may be a threat. One other thing I want to mention before I yield to my friend. We have a chart—I have had a blowup of this used before, but it points out how many times, as this points out, terminology is important in defining our goals. The 9/11 Commission identifies Islamist terrorism as the threat. The Muslim Public Affairs Council recommends that the U.S. Government find other terminology."
Comprehensive Veterans Health And Benefits And Military Retirement Pay Restoration Act Of 2014—Motion To Proceed February 27, 2014
Lindsey Graham, R-SC
"The role of the Congress is to provide oversight. I will conclude with this thought. When the war in Iraq was going fully, when Abu Ghraib became a disaster, when Guantanamo Bay tactics became exposed and they were outside of our values, Senator McCain and I joined with Democrats to get to the bottom of it. After 9/11, the Bush administration originally did not want the 9/11 Commission to be formed."
Space Launch Liability Indemnification Extension Act January 15, 2014
Frank Wolf, R-VA
"Also, in addition, there is $1 million for an independent review to report to Congress, to be conducted by an outside commission to look at the progress made over the last decade on the implementation of the 9/11 Commission."
Remembering The 9/11 Attacks September 17, 2013
Rush Holt, D-NJ
"I remember Todd Beamer of Cranbury, New Jersey, who, along with the other passengers on Flight 93, made the ultimate sacrifice to save more people in Washington, DC from almost certain death. I also remember “the Jersey Girls”—Kristen Breitweiser, Patty Casazza, Lone Van Auken, and Mindy Kleinberg—who, along with other family members, battled President Bush to force the creation of the 9/11 Commission. These men and women of 9/11—those who perished and those who preserve their memory—remind us of the strength and resilience of the American spirit."
