Partisan politics takes a brief hiatus this week in Washington, as the nation marks the 10th anniversary of the the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
U.S. Senator Richard Burr, who serves on the Senate’s Select Committee on Intelligence, believes a decade after the al-Qaeda attacks, counterterrorism measures have made America safer. But he notes homeland security experts must continue to adapt to new threats and changing technologies.
North Carolina’s senior senator says while there are those who will focus on the cost of the prolonged wars, this weekend should be reserved to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11 and to recognize the millions of U.S. military members who have served in Afghanistan and Iraq since the 2001 attacks.
This week on News & Views, Sen. Burr also discusses the challenge of reducing the nation’s debt while providing high-quality care for its veterans. For a preview of Burr’s radio interview, click below:
