Ileana Ros-Lehtinen: DNI Should Release Bin Laden Documents
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., a leading congressional Republican on foreign policy and the chairwoman of the U.S. House Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee, thinks the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) should release documents seized during the raid when American forces killed terrorist leader Osama bin Laden.
The documents recovered in the bin Laden raid are important for our nations further understanding of al-Qaida, its extremist ideology, and the threat to American security, Ros-Lehtinen said on Thursday. As seen by recent terror attacks across the Middle East and elsewhere, al-Qaida and its derivatives remain, despite claims to the contrary, a threat to our nation, our values, and our way of life. I am pleased that DNI released this latest tranche of documents in the interest of transparency and our knowledge of the enemy in order to be better prepared for the future. I urge DNI to continue its review of the remaining documents recovered in Abbottabad in an expedient manner and release them to the public as soon as possible.
