The federal government isn’t fully prepared to handle a nuclear terrorist attack or large-scale natural catastrophe, lacking effective coordination, and in some cases is years away from ensuring adequate emergency shelter and medical treatment, congressional investigators have found.
U.S. Sen. Bob Casey said Monday it would be “very healthy” for America if members of Congress spend about two weeks getting briefings, holding hearings, and having a real debate about authorizing the use of force against the Islamic State terrorist group.
Senior congressional aides say a bipartisan group of senators is working on an alternative measure to a resolution authorizing U.S. military force against Syria.
U.S. Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania on Thursday urged strong action in Syria now that the White House has said it has conclusive evidence that Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime has used chemical weapons against opposition forces.
