WASHINGTON – Congressman Robert Pittenger (NC-09) issued this statement on today’s terrorist attack in New York City:
“Today’s terrorist attack was a manifestation of pure evil and bears a disturbing resemblance to recent lone wolf attacks in Europe. We must give law enforcement adequate data to know who is in communication with radical terrorists. We must also work with our allies to cut off the money required to inspire, coordinate, and carry out these attacks.”
Congressman Pittenger is Chairman of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare and Vice Chairman of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Terrorism and Illicit Finance.
