House Republican Leader John Boehner of Ohio and Pete Hoekstra, R-Mich., released a video Thursday that details the Obama administration’s frightening lack of a comprehensive strategy to confront and fight the terrorist threat.
The administration’s recent decisions on national security, including closing a terrorist detention camp with no plan for where to put the terrorists and selectively releasing information on interrogation programs, are indications of an agenda driven by politics, not the best interest of the American people, Boehner and Hoekstra say.
“Over the last 100 days, it has become clear that the administration has no comprehensive plan to confront the threat from radical jihadists,” the two say. “From the decision to close a terrorist detention camp with no plan for what to do with the terrorists housed there to the decision to selectively release information about interrogation programs, the administration’s policies have been driven by politics, not by an overarching strategy to protect our nation.
“On day 101 of this administration, the American people are beginning to ask some serious questions about what Democrats in Washington are doing to keep America safe. Republicans want to work with the White House and Democrats in Congress to protect our nation, but the administration first must make a commitment to a comprehensive plan to fight the terrorist threat. So far, we haven’t seen that.”
