Cohen Statement on Paris Terrorist Attacks
[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) released the following statement regarding the terrorist attacks in Paris, France. “I am shocked and saddened by the news of the terrorist attacks in Paris,” said Congressman Cohen. “This is the second attack in Paris this year, with today’s tragedy following the Charlie Hebdo shooting in January.  While the investigation into the attacks is ongoing, this has all of the markings of an ISIS or al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist attack.  The individuals who perpetrated these senseless acts of violence across the city must be brought to justice. Al-Qaeda and its affiliates, who have continued their war on western civilization, must be defeated, and I support U.S. efforts to assist the French government in its investigation.  I extend my condolences to the family and friends of the victims.”
