Congressman Poe Condemns India Terrorist Attack
by Ted Poe on January 6, 2016 at 5:12 PM
This week’s deadly terrorist attack on the Pathankot Air Base is a reminder that our ally India faces the same threat of radical Islamic terrorism. Unfortunately, India’s neighbor Pakistan has provided safe haven to terrorists for years from shielding Osama bin Laden to backing covert terrorist operations around the world. It is being reported that members of the Pakistani military may have provided training and assistance to the jihadists who attacked India this week.
If this is true, the United States must immediately reevaluate aid to Pakistan which I have long called for. We should not send money to nations who provide assistance to terrorists. We stand with our friend India during this time and urge all nations in the region, including Pakistan, to join together to bring the attackers to justice.
