Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Executive Session December 15, 2014
Susan Collins, R-ME
"I have also had the great pleasure of serving with Senator Chambliss both on the Intelligence Committee, where he is the vice chairman, and previously on the Senate Armed Services Committee. I saw firsthand his extraordinary grasp of complicated issues that are so critical to the security of our Nation. I also witnessed how he would listen carefully to the views of others, whether on the Republican side of the aisle or from the Democratic Members on both committees."
Tribute To Departing Senators December 15, 2014
Harry Reid, D-NV
"While he dedicated himself to protecting the people of Colorado, he also was committed to safeguarding the constitutional rights of all Americans. Who has done more in exposing what has been going on with the invasion of people’s privacy? No one has done more than Mark. He has done this in a number of different ways. But as a member of the Intelligence Committee, his work sounded the alarm about the National Security Administration’s bulk data collection program. He fought to end the CIA’s detention and interrogation program, and together with Senator Feinstein has pushed to make public the committee’s study of the CIA’s torture program."
Tributes To Departing Senators December 15, 2014
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"Senator Udall has been a tireless advocate for the protection of civil liberties. His work on the Senate Intelligence Committee has been focused on protecting the privacy and civil liberties of all Americans, a commitment that I strongly share. His departure will be a loss to the work of the Intelligence Committee."
The New Ottoman Empire November 14, 2014
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"So a massive number of pages that radical Islamists might find offensive, that people who wanted to kill Americans might be offended by, were purged from our training materials. The State Department apparently purged materials. The intelligence community purged materials. And, as one intelligence officer told me, we have blinded ourselves of the ability to see our enemy."
Honoring Colonel Andrew J. Frank November 12, 2014
F. Sensenbrenner, R-WI
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to Colonel Andrew J. Frank who retired after 36 years of faithful service in the United States Army on September 30, 2014. As a fitting finale to his long and distinguished career, on July 28, 2014, Colonel Frank was awarded the National Intelligence Medal for Valor in recognition of his extraordinary heroism while serving in Afghanistan in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM. As the Intelligence Community’s second highest award, the National Intelligence Medal for Valor recognizes only the most exceptional acts of courage in the pursuit of intelligence community and national security objectives."
