Kuster Statement on ISIS attacks in Paris
Washington, DC, November 16, 2015
Today, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) released the following statement regarding the recent ISIS attacks in Paris:
“Our hearts ache for the families and loved ones of the victims in Friday’s brutal massacre in Paris. They each remain in our thoughts and prayers as the city grapples with the aftermath of such horrific violence and tragedy, and as the community attempts to come together and heal in the coming days.
"I am fiercely protective of our national security and believe we must be tough and smart in pursuing policies that protect Americans both at home and abroad. America stands with our French allies as they bring the perpetrators to justice. We must continue working with our allies to defeat ISIS without endangering American lives in another civil war, and I will continue listening closely to the advice of military advisors and intelligence officials. Additionally, I continue to support expanded targeted airstrikes against ISIS targets in Iraq and Syria, so that, along with our allies, we may disrupt ISIS’ ability to coordinate global terror attacks."
