Rep. Eric Swalwell’s Statement on the Terrorist Attacks in Brussels

March 22, 2016
Press Release

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said the following about today’s terrorist attacks in Brussels, Belgium:

“I stand with the people of Belgium and mourn the loss of life,” Swalwell said. “Today’s attacks, on a 183-year ally and the host country to NATO, must not paralyze us with fear or go unanswered.

“This attack has an ISIS signature we've seen before,” Swalwell added. “They clearly are determined to plan and strike our allies across Europe, but have also demonstrated a reach that inspires lone wolves to attack us at home. We must not live in fear and should go about our regular activities, but our military must continue to pound ISIS in Iraq and Syria while our law enforcement and intelligence communities aggressively investigate all threats and leads at home.”
