Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
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."
Investigating Benghazi September 12, 2013
Steve King, R-IA
"I just envision the 9/11 Commission that sat around the table. They swore in witnesses. They built a public record. The American people watched in on all of those deliberations so they could draw their judgment on whose version was the most accurate and the closest to the truth."
In Commemoration Of 9/11 September 11, 2013
Christopher Smith, R-NJ
"I was one of those, among so many others, who advocated early and consistently for a commission to chronicle the facts, missteps, and opportunities lost leading up to the original 9/11 tragedy and to develop a well-informed, thoughtful strategy to reduce the risk of an attack. The 9/11 Commission—that was chaired so ably by Governor Tom Kean, the former Governor of New Jersey, and former chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Lee Hamilton—issued an historic, incisive report, a comprehensive report which, together with subsequent legislation, was thoroughly examined by House and Senate committees."
