Statement from U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham on the Murder of Paul Johnson

WASHINGTON- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made the following statement about the murder of Paul Johnson. “Every day it becomes clearer that we are fighting barbarians in the War on Terror. They must be defeated; it is impossible to negotiate our way out of this war.” “To win this war, we must empower the good people of the Middle East who seek a better life, and resist the temptation to act like our enemy.” “One day, the barbarians responsible for this murder and all other terrorists will be brought to justice. Anything short of total victory is unacceptable.” “Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Paul Johnson, and all who have suffered so much. I hope God will provide a healing presence in their lives.” ####
