Congressman Dan Donovan

Representing the 11th District of New York


Donovan Statement on the Redacted Orlando 911 Transcripts

June 20, 2016
Press Release

“Is anybody unaware of what ideology and organization inspired the Orlando terrorist? He hatefully slaughtered innocent people because of their sexuality, and justified it by saying he did so in the name of Islam. He and other extremists have distorted an entire religion for their own disgusting purposes, and everybody knows it.

“Our own government has no business censoring 911 transcripts to remove references to what inspired this maniac. The American people deserve a full, clear picture of what we’re fighting. The Obama Administration should release an unredacted and complete transcript.”

-- Congressman Dan Donovan serves on the House Committee on Homeland Security and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. He chairs the House Subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Communications.
