U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) released the following statement on the terrorist attacks in Paris:
“These horrific attacks remind us that the terrorist threat from radical Islam is very real and it will require a sustained and coordinated effort to combat it. I do not believe such an effort can be successful without resolute U.S. leadership and a clear and aggressive strategy.
“France has been a U.S. ally in the fight against terrorism and we must stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of France today. The victims of these cowardly attacks and their families are in our thoughts and prayers as we stand alongside our French allies in the fight against terror.”
