Sen Dodd Statement on Sixth Anniversary of 9/11

WASHINGTON - Today, Presidential Candidate Chris Dodd released the following statement on the sixth anniversary of 9/11:

"We take a moment today to remember the thousands of innocent people who lost their lives and the brave first responders who risked their lives to save others. Today, America reaffirms her commitment to ensure the cold, calculated and murderous attacks perpetrated against our country never happen again.

"This begins with quickly and safely ending the war in Iraq and using the resources we had been expending there to reinforce our efforts to secure Afghanistan and hunt down the real terrorists responsible for the 9/11 attacks. It will also require restoring our standing in the world by restoring our Constitution, saying "no" to torture and shutting down Guantanamo. And we must invest in our first responders who keep our country and our communities at the ready.

"The victims of 9/11 are in all of our prayers and our hearts go out to all their families on this day of remembrance."
