March 3, 2015

WASHINGTON - Senator Richard Burr (R-NC), Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI), made the following statement following Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's address to the United States Congress:

"Today, Prime Minister Netanyahu asked for America's unwavering support for Israel, our friend and ally in a tumultuous region. It's unfortunate the Prime Minister even had to ask. Over the last six years, I have watched this Administration's foreign policy failures in the Middle East pile up and erode our relationship with Israel. I will continue to support the United States' partnership and am thankful for the Prime Minister's address to Congress today."
