The terrorist attack earlier this week in New York City that killed eight people has lawmakers looking at what can be done to help prevent future acts of terrorism. U.S. Senator Ron Johnson who chairs the homeland security committee says monitoring the internet is a start.
Johnson says people who are affiliated with Islamic terrorists that are unlawful combatants are not entitled to Geneva rights and fall outside the bounds of lawful warfare. He says President Trump’s comments of sending the suspect to Guantanamo Bay for interrogation to gather information merits consideration. The suspect who used a rented truck to run over victims in New York City’s deadliest terror attack since 9/11 was charged with federal terrorism offenses on Wednesday.
