( - House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R.-Calif.) said today that terrorists are now “exploiting security gaps throughout the Western world” and warned that the “periodic outbreak of mass casualty terror attacks cannot be allowed to become the new normal.”   

“We stand with the people of Belgium and will support them in any way possible in the wake of these barbaric attacks,” said Nunes.

“Although we don’t have all the details yet on these bombings, it’s clear that terrorists are exploiting security gaps throughout the Western world to commit mass murder,” he said.

“Thwarting these killers will require vigilance both by governments, which need to track and apprehend terrorists before they have a chance to strike, as well as citizens, who need to report suspicious activity to the authorities,” he said. “Crucially, the Obama administration needs to adopt a broad, consistent strategy to fight ISIS, al Qaeda, and an array of other terror groups. The periodic outbreak of mass casualty terror attacks cannot be allowed to become the new normal.”
