“Seventeen years ago the United States was struck in a horrendous act of evil and terror as terrorists struck the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a plane was brought down in a field in Pennsylvania,” said Senator Gardner. “Seventeen years ago terrorists tried to put fear into the hearts of every American to try and bring this country to its knees. Over the past 17 years we’ve worked together, Congress, the House, the Senate, Republicans, and Democrats, all coming together to make sure that we provide our defense department the resources it needs to prevent this kind of attack from happening here again, to make sure that our men and women in uniform have the tools they need to defend this country, not just at home, but abroad so that a strike never happens again.


“We’ve got more work to do, and I hope that as we look back over these past 17 years, as we look on this very solemn moment of September 11th, 2001, we will be lifted in spirit by the coming together of so many Americans after September 11th. Coming together to make sure we remembered what this country stood for, that we stood together as the United States, as a united nation, together as a people, together as a country, talking about our freedom, and making sure that we will never face this act of evil unprepared.”
