Nunes Comments on U.S. Air Strikes in Libya

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes released the following statement on today’s air strikes in Libya:  

“Libya is a crucial gateway for weapons and jihadists transiting throughout the Middle East and North Africa. With both ISIS and al Qaeda now having established a significant presence in Libya, the House Intelligence Committee has repeatedly argued that the jihadist threat emanating from Syria and Iraq cannot be defused without addressing the growing danger posed by the terror groups’ co-conspirators in Libya. We hope today’s air strikes signal the beginning of a new commitment by the Obama administration to put Libya at the center of a comprehensive strategy to defeat international jihadism.”
