Comment Of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) On The Terror Attacks In Brussels

[Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) is in Havana with the President’s delegation.  Leahy, ranking member of the Senate’s State Department and Foreign Operations appropriations panel, was briefed on the attacks by White House officials.]

“This was a horrendous act.  Our hearts and prayers are with the victims and their families.  All Americans are united in compassion and solidarity with the people of Brussels.  This sadness and revulsion extends to ordinary people we have encountered this morning on the streets of Havana.  People of goodwill the world over stand with the people of Brussels in our resolve to track down, rise above and eradicate those who deal in hate, fear and wanton violence.”
