“Today dozens of people in three different continents were slaughtered in terrorist attacks. In France, a person was beheaded and his head was left outside an American business that militants then tried to blow up unsuccessfully. In Kuwait, a suicide bomber blew up a Shiite mosque, killing at least 24 people and injuring many others. In Tunisia, militants stormed a beach and sprayed gunfire, killing almost 30 civilians.  This deadly day is a reminder that terrorism and the cancer of Radical Islam knows no borders. It is also a reminder of the sobering reality that if we do not continue to aggressively fight the enemy overseas, they will bring their reign of terror to America.”
