I joined with many of my Senate colleagues to sponsor a resolution supporting the right of Israel to defend itself and protect its citizens against acts of terrorism. The resolution urges President Obama to work with the international community to prevent Hamas and other terrorist organizations within Gaza from retaining the ability to launch rockets against Israel. Additionally, the resolution calls on the United Nations Security Council to condemn Gaza-based attacks against Israel. I am pleased the Senate passed this resolution unanimously and demonstrated widespread support for Israel as the country defends itself from Gaza-based terrorist missiles. We must continue to stand firmly with Israel against terrorism.

Americans Deserve Answers on Benghazi

This week, as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, I met with the acting CIA Director Mike Morell, former CIA Director General David Petraeus and other intelligence officials to investigate the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi that led to the deaths of four Americans – Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

These hearings are a first step in a thorough investigation. I am committed to working with my colleagues on the committee to get to the bottom of what happened, and understand what mistakes were made and what lessons we have learned. The American people deserve to know these answers and the truth about Benghazi.

On Thursday, I joined Erin Burnett on CNN’s OutFront following the first Senate Intelligence Committee hearing regarding the attack in Benghazi. Click here or on the image above to view my interview on CNN. 


We Must Stand with Israel
 
I am deeply concerned about the deaths and destruction inflicted on our friend and ally Israel by Hamas terrorists. Showering hundreds of deadly missiles on a civilian population is an unconscionable act that must be condemned. I joined with many of my Senate colleagues to sponsor a resolution supporting the right of Israel to defend itself and protect its citizens against acts of terrorism. The resolution urges President Obama to work with the international community to prevent Hamas and other terrorist organizations within Gaza from retaining the ability to launch rockets against Israel. Additionally, the resolution calls on the United Nations Security Council to condemn Gaza-based attacks against Israel. I am pleased the Senate passed this resolution unanimously and demonstrated widespread support for Israel as the country defends itself from Gaza-based terrorist missiles. We must continue to stand firmly with Israel against terrorism.
