Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2015 September 17, 2014
Duncan Hunter, R-CA
"This amendment does nothing to destroy the Islamic state. This amendment does not crush the Islamic state. What this amendment does is start training Islamists to fight Islamists, and we may have that Islamist army to fight Islamists in a matter of a few years."
Authority For Committees To Meet September 17, 2014
Jon Tester, D-MT
"Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that the Committee on Foreign Relations be authorized to meet during the session of the Senate on September 17, 2014, at 2:30 p.m., to conduct a hearing entitled “United States Strategy to Defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.”"
Fighting The Islamic State September 17, 2014
Tom McClintock, R-CA
"Mr. Speaker, contrary to the President’s assertion last week, the Islamic State is Islamic and it is a State, or at least it has all the attributes of a State. It is precisely this combination that makes it so dangerous, a messianic and clearly stated intention to wage jihad on American soil and the resources and equipment to do so."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions September 17, 2014
Tim Kaine, D-VA
"Mr. President, I am introducing a resolution to provide President Obama with authority in the multinational mission to defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, ISIL, which is meant to reinforce the President’s strategy, as well as set key limitations that I hope will be included in final authorizing language for broader Congressional consideration."
Congress And The Use Of Military Force September 17, 2014
Gerald Connolly, D-VA
"Mr. Speaker, later today we are likely to see bipartisan support for an amendment to authorize the Secretaries of Defense and State to provide limited assistance to properly vetted factions within the Syrian opposition as part of the broader effort to “degrade, and ultimately destroy” the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The President specifically asked Congress to provide these authorities, and I somewhat reluctantly will agree to support it."
