Senator Peters’ letter to President Obama seeks more funding to fight terrorism

(WLNS) – U.S. Senator Gary Peters is calling on the Obama administration to spend more money to try to stop terrorist groups from getting financing.

He says in a letter to the president, “we must confront the reality that we are now entering a new phase in this long term fight, complete with countering foes that are well financed and well trained in the use of the newest technologies and communications media.”

Peters is also asking for more funding for key federal offices that work to find out where terrorists are getting their money.
