State of Mississippi Archives: on Homeland Security


Dick Cheney: Steady, focused, relentless campaign against US enemies

In the weeks following the terrorist attacks on America on 9/11, people in every part of the country, regardless of party, took great comfort and pride in the conduct and character of our President. From that day to this, he has led a steady, focused, and relentless campaign against the enemies who struck America that morning and killed 3,000 of our fellow citizens.

Not long after September 11th, one high-ranking al Qaeda official said, ďThis is the beginning of the end for America.Ē Itís pretty clear this terrorist did not know us. Itís clear the terrorists who attacked us did not understand the strength and the resilience of this country. And they, clearly, did not understand the determination of our President.

Ronnie Musgrove: Favors death penalty for terrorists

In order to protect our state, we must adopt the recommendations of the Governorís Summit on Domestic Preparedness. We must also send a message to the terrorists--if you commit acts of terrorism on Mississippi soil, you will face the death penalty. I am preparing legislation to ensure just that.
