Senator Hassan Statement on Killing of ISIS Leader al-Baghdadi

WASHINGTON - Senator Maggie Hassan, a member of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, released the following statement on President Trump's announcement that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed:

“I applaud the extraordinary efforts of our Intelligence Community, U.S. Special Operations Forces, and our allies in locating and killing al-Baghdadi. ISIS has inflicted untold evil across the globe, including murdering James Foley, Steven Sotloff, and so many others, and we must continue to bring its leaders to justice. We have made important strides to eliminate ISIS’s territory and degrade their ability to carry out attacks, but the threat they pose has not been eliminated, and we must remain vigilant and aggressive in our counterterrorism efforts.”
