Press Release

"My prayers and condolences go out to the people of Mumbai, their friends and families across the world, including many in my district affected by these acts of terrorism. Those responsible for these cowardly attacks will be brought to justice.

"As we have seen over the last 24 hours, terrorism is not a threat to the West alone. This horrific event serves as a wake up call to the global community. We need to come together to fight terrorism at its root -- poverty and autocratic rule. We need to expand international anti-terrorism cooperation, humanitarian efforts and the promotion of democracy world-wide.

"Today, as we give thanks as a nation for our blessings, we must also take a moment to remember Mumbai."
