I hope everyone had a happy, safe, and healthy (candy aside) Easter weekend.
3/3: We must work with our partners and allies around the world to deny ISIS safe havens, wherever we find them.2/3: Yesterday’s use of the Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB) was targeted at ISIS fighters hunkered down in tunnels.1/3: While most attention paid to ISIS is in Syria and Iraq, they have a growing presence in Afghanistan.
The cmte has a lot of work: Russia, ISIS, Syria, cybersecurity. Educating Americans on the issues is critical for an informed citizenry.The committee more broadly can refocus on the intelligence and national security issues facing the United States.Recusal is not punitive; stepping back is an opportunity to allow the cmte to focus its energy on the investigation, not the controversy.This is a disruptive attack: all the emergency sirens in Dallas turned on by a hacker. Cybersecurity is no joke. https://t.co/u9lEV5ecjR
We are Americans first, Republicans or Democrats second. https://t.co/K5bieKZ2JZWe must continue to build a strong national security strategy. Our enemies should fear us & our citizens must know they are safe.
We live in the greatest country in the world. Sometimes it is important to take a deep breath and remember that.I was in the FBI. I have the upmost confidence in their ability to conduct a fair and effective investigation. We must let them do their jobCollaboration should not be a dirty word. It's important for us to work together - this is how we find the best solutions.The changes at the NSC are a positive development. There are big crises facing the administration and it needs clarity and focus.3/3: The conflict serves as a training ground, beacon, and source of inspiration for ISIS and their sympathizers.2/3: We must work with our allies to isolate the Assad regime, prevent further attacks, & work toward resolving this ongoing conflict.1/3: The Assad regime’s chemical attacks against civilians are appalling and horrifying. The international community must condemn them.
@emilymaxima thank you - I appreciate you showing Americans everywhere that we can work together, regardless of political parties.It is important that we don’t let party affiliations get in the way of national security. https://t.co/wVGk0w8OU5Abraham Lincoln was a smart man. It’s important that we work together to build a safe, strong America. https://t.co/qh56z2GJf4Very glad to see Daisy was enjoying today’s spring weather this afternoon. She leads a very ruff life… #labradoodle… https://t.co/yHuiMxW8z5
Want to know what a National Security Council meeting is like? This video explains many interesting aspects. https://t.co/jvd7dc3c6fOur government must deliver on their promise to the people of the United States. https://t.co/05jryGiY5d"Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them." - John C. Maxwell
I believe our country is stronger when we work together, regardless of political affiliation. We must make this a reality.Democrats won't talk to Republicans. Republicans won't talk to Democrats. For a business founded on talking, there isn't much of it going on
Congratulations to @ElonMusk and @SpaceX on their success today. Incredible accomplishment that accelerates the space industry.I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend -Thomas JeffersonCatch my latest episode of World War E on the deep and dark web here at: https://t.co/9uuTna0l2E #WorldWarE4/4: Those that recklessly release information to un-cleared, and unauthorized people, should be punished to the full extent of the law.3/4: Intelligence must be strictly controlled and not disclosed to the public to advance anyone’s partisan agenda.2/4: In our democracy, intelligence should not, and must not, be a political tool regardless of the party in power.1/4: The revelation that a deputy assistant secretary, Evelyn Farkas, pushed classified intelligence info to Hill staff is shocking.
When we are at each other’s throats, the Russians win...again.
@deirdrewalshcnn I’m referring to the current sharp edged partisanship in the national security space...both partiesWe must not allow national security to take a backseat to political affiliations.The US is ill-prepared to counter Russian information warfare. Read my oped in today’s @WSJ and at @WSJopinion https://t.co/LJf9RYGyCi
What is ransomware and should you be worried? Find out on this episode of #WorldWarE @NYDailyNews https://t.co/RJ14gzI7tk4 of 4: “If you can kill a disbelieving American or European…kill him in any manner or way.” Abu Mohammed al Adnani, ISIS spokes. Sept. 20143 of 4: “We…encourage the Muslims in the West to join the Lone Jihad caravan.” Inspire Magazine, Sept. 20152 of 4: ISIS & AQ aim to incite this type of violence around the world and have said so.1 of 4: Our thoughts & prayers are with the victims of yesterday’s attack in London. We stand by our British friends & partners.
2/2: Their current focus on the illegal disclosures misses the point – Russian intelligence operations in the US. Real & serious threats.1/2: Both parties are missing the point: Reps. focusing on Obama leaking FISA info; Dems. focus on Trump tweets.
