Foreign Policy

Our nation is facing new and renewed national security challenges. The brutal attacks in Paris and San Bernardino underscore the grave threat posed by Daesh, also known as the Islamic State. President Obama’s multifaceted strategy for confronting this threat has succeeded in recovering more than 40 percent of the territory held by Daesh in Iraq, but we must not relent in our efforts to combat this scourge.

American foreign policy should emphasize our role as a force for global peace and stability and as an exemplar of democratic values. In the current Congress, I serve as co-chair of the House Democracy Partnership, a bipartisan commission of the House of Representatives that provides support to parliaments in developing democracies. I was also instrumental in securing congressional support for the Iran Nuclear Agreement, which I strongly believe will prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, and I have spearheaded successful efforts to improve transparency and accountability for private military contractors.
