UNITED STATES SENATE, 2002
CHAIR: MAHEK AHMAD
approximate committee size: 96
To the 107th United States Senate:
Our country is in a state of turmoil. The recent attacks on the World Trade Center have left the United States vulnerable and our citizens emotionally shaken. It is up to you all to rebuild the trust of our nation and ensure that our country is safe for decades to come.
You must, at the very least, respond immediately to the attacks, develop a preventative counter-terrorism strategy that focuses both domestically and abroad, build United States defense mechanisms through soft and hard power, and rebuild trust among American citizens. I trust that you will address all tasks with equal diligence and come prepared with solutions that the Senate can work together to improve upon.
This must be a bipartisan endeavor. You must all be especially careful to address concerns of the media, international extremist groups, and the Muslim-American population here at home.
Remember, the world is watching, tread carefully. We are all counting on you.
