sen john kyl az Republican Address 09/11/10In the GOP’s weekly address, Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., echoed Obama’s plea for a common purpose. Kyl called for the country to “recapture the unity that allowed us to come together as a nation to confront a determined enemy.”

Without mentioning the president by name, Kyl seemed to question the Obama administration’s commitment to the fight against terrorism begun by President George W. Bush. Obama recently declared an end to combat missions in Iraq even as he pledged to renew war-fighting efforts in Afghanistan and pursue al-Qaida terrorists.

“The fact that none of the subsequent attempts to attack us have succeeded seems to have removed some of the urgency and commitment so necessary to succeed in war,” Kyl said.
