Washington—Vice Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released the following statement on the terrorist attacks in Brussels:

“This morning we woke to the devastating news of yet another horrific terrorist attack that claimed dozens of innocent lives in Brussels. My thoughts are with the victims, their families and all the Belgian people, and I’m wishing a speedy recovery for those wounded. Today, as on all days, the United States stands in solidarity with Belgium and all our allies in the global fight against terror.

“As we gather the facts of the blasts at Zaventem airport and near Maelbeek metro station, it’s clear to me that terrorists remain hell-bent on attacking the West and inflicting mass carnage on innocent civilians. I refuse to accept this as the ‘new normal.’

“We must use all the tools at our disposal to fight back. The way to prevent attacks like this is to develop good intelligence and always be vigilant.  We can and must root out terrorist organizations like ISIL, interrupt plots before they are executed and protect innocent civilians.”
