Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Fighting Terrorism June 27, 2016
John Cornyn, R-TX
"When the request from our military leadership arrives at the President’s desk asking for more resources, he should remember Orlando, and he should grant the request. If he refuses or dithers, any resulting failure in Iraq and Syria or further attacks on the homeland will be part of his lasting legacy. From our diplomatic corps to our intelligence community, to the leaders of our military, all have directly or indirectly challenged the President’s foreign policy in just the last few days."
Commerce, Justice, Science, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 June 21, 2016
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"As I look at these cases—and she and I have talked about this on the Select Committee on Intelligence—we know that the workforce is aging in the intelligence community. We are going to need more dollars for the personnel we are going to need and certainly a lot of resources in a variety of areas. Is that my colleague’s intention, to make sure we get the resources to, in effect, get out in front of these upcoming threats?"
Celebrating The 90Th Birthday Of Hugh Mcmillan June 14, 2016
Derek Kilmer, D-WA
"He served our country in the military and in the intelligence community, and he served our community as the unofficial mayor of the Key Peninsula. That is evidenced through his service in the Lions Club, who each year puts on a Citizen of the Year ceremony to honor those who make the Key Peninsula a better and stronger place. In fact, he served the community so well, he was given the Service Above Self Award from the Gig Harbor Rotary Club. Having a group of Rotarians honor a Lions Club member is a big deal."
Department Of Defense Appropriations Act, 2017 June 14, 2016
Rodney Frelinghuysen, R-NJ
"I would like to join with Ranking Member Visclosky in taking a moment to thank the hardworking and effective staff of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense. These are truly professional men and women who work on behalf of our national security and do remarkable things for our military that serve around the world and look after the needs of our intelligence community throughout the country and throughout the world."
Mass Shooting In Orlando, National Defense Authorization And Commerce- Justice-Science Appropriations Bills June 14, 2016
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Madam President, the terrorist attack in Orlando continues to horrify our country. The FBI and our intelligence community will determine whether that terrorist was in direct contact with ISIL or inspired by ISIL. Either way, this much we know already: ISIL is a disgusting group who crucifies children, enslaves women, and throws gay men to their deaths from rooftops. They are determined to continue exporting their signature brand of inhumanity to our country."
