Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Fighting Terrorism June 27, 2016
John Cornyn, R-TX
"Contrary to the narrative the White House is selling, Director Brennan called ISIS a “formidable adversary” that is building a global terror network. He stressed that Libya, in particular, is a growing hotbed of Islamic extremism."
Commerce, Justice, Science, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 June 23, 2016
Thom Tillis, R-NC
"Two days later—I have said to my colleagues over the past week and a half—2 days later, the President’s Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan, made a dramatically contradictory assessment: “Despite all of our progress against ISIL in the battlefield and on the ground, our efforts have not reduced the group’s terrorism capability and global reach.”"
Islamic Terrorist Global Threat June 21, 2016
Joe Wilson, R-SC
"The U.S. battle against the Islamic State has not yet curbed the group’s global reach and as pressure mounts on the extremists in Iraq and Syria, they are expected to plot more attacks on the West and incite violence by lone wolves, CIA Director John Brennan told Congress."
Isis June 21, 2016
John Thune, R-SD
"Two days later, however, the President’s CIA Director painted a very different picture. Testifying before Congress, CIA Director John Brennan stated: “Unfortunately, despite all our progress against ISIL on the battlefield and in the financial realm, our efforts have not reduced the group’s terrorism capability and global reach.”"
Fighting Terrorism June 21, 2016
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"CIA Director Brennan called this terrorist attack “an assault on the values of openness and tolerance that define us as a nation.” He is right. The report he delivered to Congress last week was sobering."
