  • Hillary Clinton Statement on Terrorist Attacks in Brussels, Belgium

    Hillary Clinton released the following statement in response to the terrorist attacks in Brussels this morning:

    “Terrorists have once again struck at the heart of Europe, but their campaign of hate and fear will not succeed. The people of Brussels, of Europe, and of the world will not be intimidated by these vicious killers. Today Americans stand in solidarity with our European allies. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those killed and wounded, and all the people of Belgium. These terrorists seek to undermine the democratic values that are the foundation of our alliance and our way of life, but they will never succeed. Today’s attacks will only strengthen our resolve to stand together as allies and defeat terrorism and radical jihadism around the world.”

  • Video: President Obama condemns Belgium terrorist attacks, says we will do whatever is necessary to support our friend and ally…”the world must unite, we must be together regardless of nationality or race or faith in fighting against the scourge of terrorism.”


  • Video: Trump demonstrates exactly how NOT to respond to terrorist attacks (or anything else). “Frankly, we’re having problems with the Muslims…These attacks are not done by Swedish people, that I can tell you. We have to be smart. We have to be vigilant…We have to look at the mosques and study what’s going on…”


  • Video: Also, utterly unhelpful (but typical) comments by crazy bigot Ted Cruz.



    WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tim Kaine, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations and Armed Services Committees, released the following statement today on the terrorist attacks in Brussels, Belgium:

    “Acts of terror have once again taken the lives of too many innocent people and brought a bustling capital to a halt. My heart goes out to the people of Belgium and I offer my strongest support to the Belgian and international authorities working around the clock to find those responsible for these horrific acts and to eliminate any additional threats. The attackers must be captured and held to account for the murder of innocent civilians.

    “From today’s attacks in Belgium to the recent attacks in Turkey and Ivory Coast, it’s clear that ISIL and other terrorist organizations remain a serious threat to the daily lives of many around the world. These attacks underscore the need for increased intelligence and security coordination among all nations to root out extremist violence and to fight back against those who seek to inflict harm on civilians.”

    “Just last week I met with U.S. Ambassador to Belgium Denise Bauer to talk about the threats facing Europe, including from foreign fighters joining ISIL and returning to their home countries. We stand united with Belgium in confronting and defeating this threat.”

    Numerous print articles are available today on the demagoguery of two presidential candidates; bbc, the guardian, yahoo, cafe. Best comments of the day negating their “round up all Muslims at the mosques” ideas were by Evan Kohlmann, counter-terrorism expert (interviewed by Tamron Hall on msnbc); I hope the footage will be played many times over. I also relish the smart analysis of Richard Engel.
