    (1) Usama bin Laden declared war on the United States in 1996.

    (2) International terrorists, including al Qaida and its affiliated terrorists, have repeatedly attacked the United States and its coalition partners throughout the world and have killed and wounded thousands of innocent United States citizens and citizens from these coalition partners.

    (3) The United States is exercising its rights to self-defense and to protect United States citizens both at home and abroad by waging war alongside its coalition partners against al Qaida and affiliated terrorists.

    (4) International terrorists continue to pose an extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States and its coalition partners.

    (5) International terrorists continue to commit and plan terrorist attacks around the world against the United States and its coalition partners;.

    (6) In order to protect the United States and its citizens, the United States must identify terrorists and those individuals who support them, disrupt their activities, and eliminate their ability to conduct or support attacks against the United States, its citizens, and its coalition partners.

    (7) Identifying, disrupting, and eliminating terrorist threats against the United States requires effective gathering, dissemination, and analysis of timely intelligence.

[Page: S8496]

    (8) The collection of information from detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, by the United States has improved the security of the United States and its coalition partners and is essential in fighting the Global War on Terrorism.

    (9) The loss of interrogation-derived information would have a disastrous effect on the United States' intelligence collection and counterterrorism efforts and would constitute a damaging reversal in the Global War on Terrorism.

    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--

    (1) the capture, detention, and interrogation of international terrorists are essential to the successful prosecution of the Global War on Terrorism and to the defense of the United States, its citizens, and its coalition partners from future terrorist attacks;

    (2) the detention and lawful, humane interrogation by the United States of detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, is essential to the defense of the United States and its coalition partners and to the successful prosecution of the Global War on Terrorism; and

    (3) the detention facilities and interrogations at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, plays an essential role in the security of the United States and should not be closed or ended while the United States is waging the Global War of Terrorism.
