Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
A Tribute To Amelia Boynton Robinson, Congressman Louis Stokes, And Julian Bond September 28, 2015
Terri Sewell, D-AL
"During his tenure on the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, he stepped into the national spotlight as a vocal critic of the Reagan administration’s foreign policy. He spoke boldly on issues of national security and created a legacy of being a fierce advocate for the homeland. In honoring his memory, we must also commit ourselves collectively to continue the fight to promote diversity within the intelligence community. We must also be committed to supporting policies that promote our national security in the face of growing threats. It was Congressman Lou Stokes who taught us that our Nation deserves nothing less. "
Christians Under Attack September 28, 2015
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"He went on to say: “ `Just look at a map of the Middle East … on George W. Bush’s last day in office. There is broad peace across the Middle East and North Africa, Iraq was finally convalescing, and … Obama promptly, to please his America-hating base, abandons Iraq, backs the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, gets rid of Qaddafi without a plan for what goes after, threatens Assad … then does nothing, doesn’t listen to the intelligence community when for years they are telling him about the Islamic State coming—then tries to blame the intelligence community, and launches feckless airstrikes. The combination of his fecklessness and cowardice, his rhetorical bravado and utter incompetence are responsible.’ ”"
Approval Of Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action September 11, 2015
Ron Kind, D-WI
"Although the agreement is not a perfect solution to a complex problem, I believe the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is the best option to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Before negotiations began, Iran was steadily improving its nuclear weapon capability. It was estimated by our intelligence community that Iran was only a few months away from developing a bomb, which is unacceptable."
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015—Continued September 9, 2015
Richard Burr, R-NC
"Our intelligence community does amazing things, and I am continually impressed with the dedication, drive, and the capability of its people. Our intelligence community regularly provides our civilian and military leadership insights and assessments on the toughest national security problems, but they never—they never—claim—and I wouldn’t believe them if they did—to have absolute knowledge of any issue. Again, intelligence is imperfect."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 5, 2015
Susan Collins, R-ME
"I just wanted that to be clear. I think it is significant that those members of the Intelligence Community do believe we need to go further in this arena."
