From the opening statement of Orrin G. Hatch: "It has been almost a year and a half since terrorists attacked our country, killing almost 3,000 people. The enemy is unlike any that we have faced before: deadly, well-financed international terrorists whose tentacles reach into every corner of the globe and who are ready to give their lives in order to destroy other people's lives. Make no mistake: the threat to our country continues today. Terrorist organizations exist within our borders and throughout the world. They are fanatics committed to the destruction of America and will do anything to harm our country and our people. Terrorists will use any means to defeat America. Their means to their gruesome ends will evolve. And our ability to respond must evolve, and we must embrace new tools and new approaches. We must ensure that law enforcement, intelligence, and homeland security agencies are given the tools and the resources needed to protect our country." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Orring G. Hatch, Russell D. Feingold, Herbert Kohl, and Jon Kyl.
