Remembering 9/11

Roy Blunt, United States Senator for Missouri Dear Unity, Today marks 13 years since the horrific terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. We'll never forget those who lost their lives on 9/11, and we're forever grateful to our men and women in uniform, intelligence professionals, and the nation's first responder community for working tirelessly to keep us safe. There's no doubt that our nation still faces a real threat from terrorist groups and enemies who wish us harm. We were reminded of this just two years ago, when four Americans were killed during a terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi. And the threat to our nation from terrorist groups like ISIL is still very real. In fact, because of a new base in Syria and Iraq, that threat is potentially even more dangerous today. Like the rest of the nation, I will be watching closely for what actions the president ultimately takes to stop ISIL. If left unchecked, the danger posed by ISIL could easily produce a significant threat to the United States. This group is not a 'manageable problem' as the president described it last week. But instead, it matches his description last night of a group that must be defeated.� I hope the president's plan and his resolve can meet the goal of defeating this enemy. On this day and every day, we will never forget the innocent victims, first responders, and their families who lost so much on 9/11. As a member of the defense authorizing and appropriations committees, I will continue working to ensure our military, intelligence, and first responders have the resources they need to protect America.

Dear Unity,

Today marks 13 years since the horrific terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. We'll never forget those who lost their lives on 9/11, and we're forever grateful to our men and women in uniform, intelligence professionals, and the nation's first responder community for working tirelessly to keep us safe.

There's no doubt that our nation still faces a real threat from terrorist groups and enemies who wish us harm. We were reminded of this just two years ago, when four Americans were killed during a terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi. And the threat to our nation from terrorist groups like ISIL is still very real. In fact, because of a new base in Syria and Iraq, that threat is potentially even more dangerous today.

Like the rest of the nation, I will be watching closely for what actions the president ultimately takes to stop ISIL. If left unchecked, the danger posed by ISIL could easily produce a significant threat to the United States. This group is not a 'manageable problem' as the president described it last week. But instead, it matches his description last night of a group that must be defeated. 

I hope the president's plan and his resolve can meet the goal of defeating this enemy.

On this day and every day, we will never forget the innocent victims, first responders, and their families who lost so much on 9/11. As a member of the defense authorizing and appropriations committees, I will continue working to ensure our military, intelligence, and first responders have the resources they need to protect America.

Sincere regards,

Senator Roy Blunt
