Sen. Graham: ‘Is Anybody Being Deterred by the Policies of President Biden? The Answer Is No” – By Susan Jones (CNS News) / May 17 2021
(CNSNews.com) – “Is anybody afraid of Joe Biden?” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) asked on Friday. “Is anybody being deterred by the policies of President Biden? The answer is no. This is a dangerous time in the world right now,” the senator said.
He was speaking specifically about the ransomware attack on Colonial Pipeline, characterizing Biden’s response to the attack as “ineffective and weak.”
The one thing that we haven’t seen from Joe Biden is a deterrent approach. Is anybody in Russia afraid of hitting us again? The idea of graduating people to go into cybersecurity is not what I was looking for. I was looking for putting the Kremlin on notice that these people live in your backyard. We’re going to hold you accountable for their misadventure.
I was looking for upping our game in terms of our laws making cyberattacks like this, cyber terrorism so that the people who did it could be — could get, you know, death penalty or life in jail — deterring people. I’m looking for Hamas to be deterred. They’re not. I’m looking for Mexico and Central America to stop the onslaught on the border.
