President Bush and House Republicans remain committed to increasing national security and protecting American families. The 'Military Commissions Act' will further both these goals by maintaining the CIA interrogation program and creating an avenue for trying terrorists. To win the Global War on Terrorism, we must have all tools at our disposal. Strenuous interrogation of terrorists has led to the capture of al-Qaeda operatives and foiled attacks within the United States and overseas.

Unfortunately, Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and her cohorts have chosen political opportunism above protecting America. Capitol Hill Democrats have repeatedly blocked Republican efforts to strengthen our national defense and make America safer.
