·        Congressman Trent Franks (Az-08) today released a statement on the deadly terrorist attacks outside the U.S. Embassy in Ankara, Turkey: “Today’s tragic violence at the U.S. Embassy in Turkey is an attack against every American back home. American sovereign territory in Ankara was explicitly targeted by a militant suicide bomber and the reverberations of this tragedy are felt by us all. I mourn for these families and I pray for their peace in this difficult time.
“I am outraged by this act of terrorism at another U.S. Embassy and am deeply saddened at the senseless loss of life. We must remain intensely vigilant of the spread of radical ideologies, especially as we remember the loss of innocent life after the deadly 9/11 attack on the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya and the 2008 attack outside the U.S. consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.  Both attacks were perpetrated by al-Qaida-affiliated militants. Today’s attack further underscores how terrorists continue to target American citizens and U.S. sovereign territory.
“We must strongly defend our citizens against extremist violence both abroad and here in the homeland.  We cannot lose focus on this important task.”
