Castor calls for investigation of 9/11 Sarasota connection


Tampa Congresswoman Kathy Castor Monday called on the House Intelligence Committee to investigate why the FBI did not disclose to Congress information it learned about a Saudi couple living in southwest Florida with ties to the 9/11 hijackers. The Saudis came to the FBI’s attention after neighbors reported they’d suddenly fled their home near Sarasota two weeks before the 2001 terrorist attacks. “One of the great criticisms of the pre-9/11 intelligence operations,” Castor wrote in her letter to the committee’s two senior members, “was the lack of ...

Kathy Castor blasts GOP plan to cut hurricane hunters


For several weeks now, Tampa area Democratic Congresswoman Kathy Castor has been ripping into a proposal by House Republicans that would cut funding by 40 percent for so-called "hurricane hunters' - military plans that fly into hurricanes in order to measure and track them. The issue has grown in resonance after Hurricane Irene churned up significant damage in the Northeast.

That statement has been met ...

U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor's Statement on Last Night’s U.S. Strike Against Syria
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) released the following statement about last night’s U.S. strike against Syria: "The Tomahawk missile strike on the Syrian air base was an important and targeted response to Bashar Assad's use of chemical weapons. Russia and Iran should be held accountable as well for their support of Assad and his war on the Syrian people. “The U.S. Constitution vests the responsibility to declare war in the Congress. Congressional leaders, the Trump Administration and Obama Administration have been derelict in following the requirements of the Constitution and law for a formal Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF). The military strike on Syria and ongoing war on ISIS should prod policymakers to return to Washington and adopt a new AUMF." ###

U.S. Rep. Castor Introduces Resolution Commemorating the 30th Anniversary of United States Special Operations Command

This elite force was needed as America faced an increasing need for rapid response to emerging threats that often required unconventional warfare. U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14), who represents MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla where the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) is headquartered, today introduced a bipartisan resolution, with her fellow co-chairs of the Special Operations Forces Caucus, honoring the incredible work of USSOCOM over the past 30 years, which has evolved into an essential strategy for our national security. “Today, USSOCOM is an agile and effective global force for good. We must be vigilant in our support for modernizing our strategic capabilities that will bolster counterterrorism efforts,” said U.S. Rep. Castor, who co-chairs the bipartisan U.S. Congressional Speci
