Senate Intel Chairman Burr Statement on Terror Attack in Nice, France

WASHINGTON –Today, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC), Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, made the following statement on the terror attack in Nice, France:

“My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families in Nice, France.  Unfortunately, this fight is no longer about individual attacks.  We are at war with terrorists who have the intent and capability to kill innocent people across the globe.  If the United States, along with our coalition partners, does not eliminate the extremists’ intent and capability, then it is only a matter of time before the next attack.”
