42 Members of Congress sign letter to President Obama on IEDs – Forty-two members of the U.S. House of Representatives have signed a letter to President Obama calling for a unified U.S. strategy and international action against Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). Organizers hope others will join the call. The letter calls for President Obama to work with Congress and global governments to address critical gaps in the humanitarian response to IEDs, strengthen application of the rule of law, and eliminate serious deficiencies in public-private information sharing. The significant bi-partisan support now includes representatives from key House committees including: Foreign Affairs, Armed Services, Homeland Security, Veteran’s Affairs, Appropriations, Ways and Means, Judiciary, House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Small Business, Oversight and Government Reform, Education and Workforce, Transportation and Infrastructure, Joint Committee on Taxation, Budget, Agriculture and Natural Resources. The response underscores the true bipartisan nature of the issue.
