Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Continued November 18, 2015
John Cornyn, R-TX
"The American people can take the truth; they just haven’t heard it yet about the nature of the threat and about an effective strategy to deal with that threat. As we have learned and as the 9/11 Commission observed, one of the worst things we could do for our own national security is allow safe havens for terrorists to develop in places such as Syria and Iraq, places where they can train, arm, and then they can export their attacks, and given the unique capability of ISIS, they can communicate by social media and over the Internet and radicalize people here in the United States, just as they apparently did with people in France."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Environmental Protection Agency November 17, 2015
John Cornyn, R-TX
"By allowing ISIS to take over such a large portion of territory, President Obama has neglected one of the key recommendations of the 9/11 Commission, which advised the U.S. Government following that fateful day on September 11, 2001, to “identify and prioritize actual or potential terrorist sanctuaries.” Instead, the President has stood and watched like a spectator while this terrorist army, over the course of many months, has carved out its own safe haven right in the heart of the Middle East, and in doing so, has erased the border between Syria and Iraq where they control large swaths of territory."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 5, 2015
Susan Collins, R-ME
"Along with former Senator Joe Lieberman, I authored the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004. This bill implemented many of the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission report in the wake of Al Qaeda’s terrorist attack on our country that took the lives of nearly 3,000 people. Many of the reforms enacted in our law were well-known and recommended prior—far before—the attacks on our country on 9/11, but they simply were never implemented, despite the clear and present threat posed by Al Qaeda."
Cbrn Intelligence And Information Sharing Act Of 2015 June 23, 2015
Bennie Thompson, D-MS
"Mr. Speaker, in the years following the September 11 attacks, Congress worked to address many of the preparedness gaps identified by the 9/11 Commission, including the threat posed by weapons of mass destruction. Pursuant to the 9/11 Commission‘s recommendations, Congress established the Weapons of Mass Destruction, or WMD Commission."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act—Motion To Proceed May 6, 2015
John Cornyn, R-TX
"After completing a review of the system, this bipartisan commission would work for a unanimous recommendation on how to strengthen it. Congress could—much as it did with the 9/11 Commission—take bits and pieces of it. We wouldn’t need to embrace all of it—or any of it, for that matter. But at least we would have the good and thoughtful work product of some experts who would be able to make recommendations to us in a number of areas."
