McKeon Issues Statement On Signing Of Defense Bill

By SCVNews.com Staff

U.S. Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon (R-Santa Clarita), chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, issued the following statement on President Obama’s signing of the National Defense Authorization Act on Saturday evening:

“I am gratified that the President signed the NDAA this evening. His signature is the culmination of the most transparent NDAA process to date, and broad bi-partisan agreement in both chambers on a variety of national security issues.

“One of those issues was the establishment of a common sense and coherent detainee policy. Sections 1021 and 1022 uphold the military’s authority to detain terrorists, and offer a structure for holding those who would do us harm; one both parties found preferable to the ad hoc course the White House has been on for nearly four years.”
