New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 24, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas New Texas Lloyd Bentsen October Antiterrorist funding is needed in International terrorism poses a serious and increasing threat to the safety of abroad more than at home up to More than 40 percent of the worlds terrorist incidents are directed at Americans and their property overseas or government facilities in other We are fortunate that terrorists activities in this country have not risen In the number of such incidents in the United States has decreased in recent But we cannot assume this trend will continue since the number of incidents prevented by the Federal Bureau of Investigation has in creased This is hardly the time to relax and let down our for the case against 11 members of a neoNazi group called The Order charged with G7 crimes aimed at over throwing the government and establishing a white supremacist Also it has only been weeks since the FBI arrested 13 members of the Puerto Ilican terrorist group Los which had claimed responsibility for an attack on a Navy bus in Puerto Rico that killed two They were arrested for a million armored car Their presence here is as are reports that agents of the Ayatollah Khomeini are in hiding here already to wreak havoc on orders from and that pro Qaddafi Libyans are plotting to assassinate dissidents in the United We should take serious the threat all this represents and we should not ignore the warning brought back by Reverend Ben the Presbyterian minister held captive 16 months in Lebanon by Moslem that more kidnappings and executions of Americans are threatened Nor should we forget the terrorist bomb that exploded in the Capitol not so long striking at the very heart of our The concrete flower garbage xray machines and metal detectors visitors now see in Washington are hardly there for Our first defense against terrorism within our own borders is the Federal Bureau of and it has been doing a good But as the threat of domestic terrorism so must our efforts to stop the FBIs request for more funds for fiscal year 1985 was and the 1986 budget was frozen at the 1985 The Senate has just approved my proposal to add million to the FBIs budget for beginning this This critically needed funding is a reasonable and wise investment against the growing danger of terrorism within our own Let us have faith that right makes and in that faith let us to the end dare to do our duty as we understand Abraham Lincoln What newspapers from around the state are see Editorial below nions Mailbag policy The HeraldZeitung
