Chairman Nunes Statement on Iran Nuclear Deal

Washington, D.C. – House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes issued the following statement today in response to the nuclear agreement with Iran:   

“The Obama administration has achieved the rare feat of uniting Israel with a wide array of Arab nations. Unfortunately, the issue that unites them is opposition to the Iran deal. I don’t know what information the Obama administration possesses that indicates this deal will actually prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon or will cause the mullahs to reduce their support for worldwide terrorism, but it sure isn’t the same intelligence we’re seeing in the Intelligence Committee. Iran has killed hundreds of U.S. soldiers, tried to conduct a terrorist attack in the United States, and is committed to annihilating Israel. This deal will guarantee Iran the capability to carry out its clear intent."

Nunes, Westmoreland Comment on OPM Cyberattack

Washington, D.C. – House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes and NSA and Cybersecurity Subcommittee Chairman Lynn Westmoreland issued the following statements today in response to the cyberattack on the Office of Personnel Management:    

Chairman Nunes: “The threat of cyberattacks on U.S. networks is growing more severe every day. The recent attack on the Office of Personnel Management is just the latest breach that has jeopardized the personal information of millions of Americans. The government must take fast, decisive measures to counter these intrusions, which emanate from hostile nation-states as well as non-state actors. The House of Representatives has sought to strengthen our cyber defenses by approving the Protecting Cyber Networks Act, and the Senate urgently needs to pass the bill.”   

Chairman Westmoreland: “The number of cyberattacks on our nation is increasing at a rapid and incredibly concerning pace. Business and industry leaders warned us of the growing threats during various hearings, and this attack shows why the Senate needs to move quickly on a cyber bill. Our nation must adopt strong defenses against cyberattacks and we need to do it immediately.”

House Intelligence Committee Passes Fiscal Year 2016 Intelligence Authorization Bill

WASHINGTON, D.C. – By a unanimous voice vote, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence today reported the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 (H.R. 2596) to the full of House of Representatives.  

This legislation provides the Intelligence Community authorization needed to protect and defend the United States. It supports critical national security programs such as those protecting Americans against terrorism and cyberattacks. The total funding authorized by the bill is consistent with the Budget Resolution and the Budget Control Act, balancing fiscal discipline and national security.

Among other things, the legislation:        

·         Sustains critical capabilities to fight terrorism and counter the proliferation of            weapons of mass destruction.

·         Funds efforts to recover from unauthorized disclosures of intelligence capabilities.

·         Sustains activities in Afghanistan and Iraq to continue the fight against ISIS, al Qaeda,            and the Taliban.

·         Invests in the resiliency of our national security space architecture.

·         Provides policy direction on sensitive intelligence operations.

·         Promotes intelligence integration and sharing through investment in Intelligence            Community-wide information technology enterprises.

·         Enhances investments in military intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance aircraft.

·         Funds initiatives to thwart cyberattacks and insider threats.

·         Requires a report every 60 days on foreign fighters in Syria and Iraq.

 

“This bill will ensure that the Intelligence Community receives the resources it needs to continue protecting Americans from attack by a wide array of foreign adversaries,” said Chairman Nunes. “The legislation is a crucial component of the committee’s oversight responsibilities, and I look forward to swift consideration of the bill by the full House of Representatives.”

Nunes Comments on Release of Usama Bin Laden Documents

For Immediate Release - May 20, 2015

Nunes Comments on Release of Usama Bin Laden Documents

Washington, D.C. – House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes issued the following statement today in response to the release by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence of a new tranche of documents seized from Usama Bin Laden’s compound:    

“In the May 1, 2011 raid that killed Usama Bin Laden, the U.S. collected a treasure trove of documents and files. It is in the interest of the American public for citizens, academics, journalists, and historians to have the opportunity to read and understand Bin Laden’s documents. In 2012, the Obama administration announced the declassification and release of 17 intelligence reports by the West Point Combating Terrorism Center. Seventeen additional reports were declassified for use in court cases. But the public deserves more. That is why I pushed to include language in the Fiscal Year 2014 Intelligence Authorization Act directing the declassification of intelligence reports that are representative of the intelligence produced from the documents.

“Today’s release of 86 new reports by the Director of National Intelligence – bringing the total number of declassified reports to 120 – is a step in the right direction. I look forward to the conclusion of the ongoing efforts to declassify the hundreds of remaining Abbottabad reports to meet congressional requirements.”
